Sarge, our big dog picture

I know this is a bit off topic, but I also know there are some dog fans out there as well.

I met Sheila when I adopted Sarge from her, 1999. At the time, he was still a pup and only 170 lbs.

Last time we weighed Sarge, he was 220 lbs, but I expect he may weigh more than that now.

We took him out to the river today to take some pictures, and I snapped one of him beside our very dirty truck.

I just made a few measuremtns. The tires are 33'', the chrome on the fender is a tad over 40'', and the line his nose is at is 51''.

Sarge is a German bred dog, and much thicker than the average Canadian or American Great Dane.

We have to scan some other pictures we have of Sarge. One shows him standing in our bathroom, his head is as big as the toilet (regulation sized toilet). The other picture shows him holding a fully inflated basket baball in his mouth. His excessive mouth skin hangs over much of the ball, only about 1/2 of it is visable.

Does anyone know if there is a record size for dogs in Canada. I think we might have a challenger.

Ryan and Sheila

That is a beautifull dog!!! Henry Piorun's dog Tiberius may give him a run for his money as far as size goes, he's absolutely massive.

Here is my pup Bull at 7 months, he is 10 months now and weighs in at around 115lbs. He won't get close to yours but he should be pretty big once he fills out.

Hi Ryan from Craven, nice seeing another Saskatchewanonian on the forums.

Sarge is bigger than Tiberius, Henry and Terri came out in the Fall of 2001 and got to meet Sarge while here. The dog even looked big next to Henry.

Sarge has a long tail that he wags with great force when he is happy. He was so happy to see Henry, that his tail wagged extra hard - met it's mark (near the centre of Henry's body, you figure it out), and nearly dropped Henry to the floor.

We attempted have Sarge breed a compatable female, unfortunately no puppies were had. But Terri was getting the pick of the litter of that attempted breeding, and if he does ever produce puppies, they are the first people getting one (to breed to Tiberius some day hopefully). I expect their dog may some day out weigh Sarge - and it has a really big head also.
(I've only seen pictures of it). Tiberius and Sarge's biggest pup could produce the ulitmate junk yard dogs.

Nice Bandogge Ryan, is it from Beth?

I also like the cat pictures. We used to have a picture of our siamese cat's yawning - they looked truly evil - on either side of sarge - at the start of our web page.

Beautiful dogs Ryan, Shelia ...and Ryan from Craven! The cat pictures are hillarious! lol...

Here are my hounds! Kasper (German Weimeraner) and Oggie (German Short Haired Pointer)
Kasper is my BABY! He still has some filling out to do...he is only 3 years old.
Oggie is 9...we rescued him a month ago from a family that replaced him with a new puppy! He is such a great dog...I dont know what they were thinking!
The both of them have become great friends..strange because both are very dominant males. Right now they are paws up on the couch!!...as usuall . lol! Spoiled rotton!

Hey Ryan,
I will stop by this weekend and see good 'ol Sarge up close. Maybe we can take him down to the river on a little herp trip and get some water skies and he can pull me around for a bit??? LOL

I currently dont have any photos of my pooches but I might as well describe them

Tiiu(TEE-YOO) is 10 years old. She is a mix between a collie and a golden retriever. She is 76lbs and is the sweetest mutt in the world!! She is just too wonderful to describe

Ilumai(EE-LOO-MY) on the other hand, is a spoiled rat!! She is a purebread chihuahua and weighs 4lbs. She is 6 years old and gets soo much attention. She also loves chewing on Tiiu's legs
