My parents had one when I was very young. I barely remember her, but as is often the case with big dogs, I was told she was very gentle.

When I was very young (5-8 years of age), we had a pedigreed Great Dane with a name as long as your arm - "Lady Camillia of New England". New England being a cold mountain area of northern NSW, Australia.
"Cammie" as she was called was a gentle giant with a HUGE appetite.
When the family moved to the property in Central NSW where it was very hot,Dad sold Cammie to a registered breeder.
I am sure Cammie had a very good life with her new owner.
Thanks For the memories, Adam.
