he he Yeah, those toads taste really bad! I have to rescue them from the Pack regularly, and then I have to remember to keep my fingers out of my mouth :yuck: Toad is definitely not a good flavor!:laughing:

Sure is cute the way she's investigating! I love that "forward-retreat head-up/head-down cock the head put up the ears/put the ears down" sort of advance on an unknown object. :D

She's so pretty. I bet that toad didn't think she looked so good though. :p

Thanks Erykah, I'll make sure to tell Nelly ! Does anyone know when do Great danes stop growing ? Nelly is about 1-2 yr old and so petite, I was wondering if she would get taller ? :confused:

A Nelly,she looks like she has forgotten all the bad stuff ,love the way her ears stick up,like antennas.
Cute little toad,I am glad she decide it was not on her menu:laughing:
We don't get any frogs or toads here:sad:

Im not sure at all, but couldnt her having pups so young basically stunt her??
I have no idea, im not familiar with what happens when a dog is bred too young.
She probably wont get much taller, but perhaps fill out now.:shrug:
Hey why not email a breeder ( a REAL breeder) and ask, just give a bit of info on your rescue Dane and your curiosity.
I would imagine a good breeder would be more than happy to help a care taker out?

Chico2 , I have a couple of toads in my yard,mostly around the pool , and they always scare the heck out of me ! You bend down to pull some weed out and they wait until the last minute to move and jump :yell:

Cute pics....such an inquisitive girl. I'm sure glad we don't have toads/frogs around here. It was bad enough when I had to fish a mouse out of Logan's mouth. :frustrated:

Ah but don't worry, dogs learn pretty quickly to NOT take the toads in their mouth, Bailey found one this afternoon, was trying to get to it but didn't taste it, maybe he already knew ? :D

He has a pretty big prey drive though. He caught a bird the other day. :sad: :rip:

Trust me Rainbow, these toads taste yucky (not that I tasted one :laughing: ) and I moved near one last week, and saw it pee ! I guess it's another one of their defense mechanism. :yuck:

Nelly is looking really good,

I have had a couple dog grab toads here , and they end up spending the next half hour spitting and foaming at the mouth, unfortunately Sunny had to try it again, he I think is too prey driven to learn :rolleyes:

Those are great! Nelly looks so content and happy. She is so beautiful, Frenchy. I love her brindle color and the way her ears perk up. I truly can't get enough looking at that girl. :D And the toad story, hilarious. Sometimes my doggies come in licking their lips and I wonder what on earth they've been tasting...

Thanks everyone , I am very proud of her. She is becoming very confident , she has started to growl at home when she hears a noise outside (or dogs on tv :D ) at first I tought if someone would come in this house , she would be scared , but now I dare anyone to come in without my consent :evil: And she played with teenageers today, even leting them take the cua so they could throw it back, she doesn't even do that with me :confused:

If you pick them up to save them from a Pack assault, they pee on your hand. :laughing: I've learned to pick them up from the side and stand back so I miss the worst of it! :D
