Great Dane Slide-a-thon

1. Whooooah!
2. Wah! Whooooooaah!
3. Wheeeeee!

As you said, Anna, totally anerabuhls.



  1. Grrrr! Why don’t they put seat belts on these thing?

    This made me laugh till my stomach ached! 😆

    PS Not crazy about this “loggin in” thing…sorry. 😦

  3. bookmonstercats says:

    Aha, kibblenibble, I thought it was just moi – had i offended the great Mod God so much they were making it difficult for me to post. Not keen either. Although if She Who Must Be Obeyed says it is so, it is.

  4. Why is this couch so slippery?!

    ROFL what a pair, lucky owner(s)!

  5. bookmonstercats says:

    Anyhoos, now that I’m in, that’s one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen. How clever of the little doggeh to work out s/he has to sling a front leg over the dane’s back in order to stay on board.

  6. @bookmonstercats, I thought the same thing. And it is cute that the Great Dane seems oblivious to the whole thing.

    Just checked, and it seems that wordpress has changed things so that if you have an email that is connected to a wordpress account, you have to log in to comment.

    I’m now attempting to use a different email and see if it will let me post a comment.

  7. WordPress login issues: it seems that my previous comment did get posted but is awaiting moderation.

    I used an email that is not linked to WordPress. I didn’t remember that my other email was linked to a wordpress account! Guess I better go see what’s going on.

    This comment may end up in moderation as well.

    Related to the picture: I love the color of the Great Dane and that laid back attitude.

  8. Just checked, and it seems that wordpress has changed things so that if you have an email that is connected to a wordpress account, you have to log in to comment.

    I have now logged into the wordpress account that I created ages ago, but never used. Let’s see if this gets posted or ends up in moderation with my other comments.

    Note: you can use a different email address if you have one and keep your regular username.

    And now, something about the picture: This must happen a lot, since the Great Dane is totally ignoring the other dog.

  9. That’s a new breed of dogs, the Satin great dane. Looks like an odinary great dane just more slippery.

  10. Maybe Velcro would be a good idea.

  11. Fird Birfle says:

    Thee Great Dane eez a verrrry verrrrry patient, and very large Dogue.

  12. Queen of Dork says:

    I don’t know why. For some reason, this reminded me of Makarova. (who did then and forever will rock my balletic world)

  13. Fird Birfle says:

    *high-fives Q across the United States*

    HI Queen!!!
    Hey, double-check yr regular emails. Sent you s’thing about an hour ago.
    I’m just here for about another 10 min.

    (1:55, East Coast)

  14. Some how I was envisioning the great dane sitting up and the puppers sliding down it’s back a la Clifford the Big Red Dog.

  15. D’oh. Its…curse you, fast fingers.

  16. Kari Callin says:

    Having mastered the beginner’s slope, the young hopeful rested, preparing for the Great Dane Ridge of Doom!

  17. That Great Dane is a saint, that’s what (s)he is! Espesh knowing the sensitivity and vulnerability of the general region subjected to the tiny dog acrobatics.

  18. Upon second viewing, apparently it’s a he. Saintyness factor elevated even higher, if possible.

  19. Who waxed the great dane?
    Who? Who Who? Who?
    Who waxed the great dane?
    Who? Who Who? Who?

    (to the tune of Who let the dogs out)

  20. I… like… sleek… butts and I like to slide
    You other Great Danes can’t deny!

  21. This is fantastic. I love how completely chilled out the Great Dane is. Such good pals.

  22. Love how the Great Dane just lies there, like he aleady knows what’s going on, and can no longer be bothered to acknowledge it.

  23. Alice Shortcake says:


  24. Wonderful…..but how come nobody noticed the cute smart dog is a basenji — who are beautiful, graceful, smart and are known for their sly sense of humor as well as being very, very quiet? I still miss my beloved ‘senji boy (Wrecks) who’s been gone, but not forgotten , for 2 and 1/2 years and is fondly remembered by all who knew him.

  25. hmstracylee says:

    ohh what a patient goggie! who’s a good boy!

    and smartypants little one is a very clever puppers!

    &agreed, this wordpress login is sehr annoying. sorry…

  26. hmstracylee says:

    I mentally put a slide whistle sound effect every time the little’un fell 🙂

  27. Ali-Baba says:

    I’ve been spending most my life sliding down a Great Danes’ slippery side


  28. For some reason I was thinking it was going to be a little chihuahua sliding down a great dane. Kinda disappointed it wasn’t.

  29. hahahahahahahahah wonderful

  30. That’s what happens when you try and sleep on top of the dog right after he moisturized.

  31. Fird Birfle says:

    heh heh

  32. kibblenibble says:

    Suzanne, I’m sorry that you lost your Basenji. He had a wonderful life with you, I’m sure! 🙂 My neighbor has an eleven year old female. She is SO funny, smart, and sweet. I love her!

  33. A little rug grip padding would cure that issue.

  34. I’m trying to figure out what sound effect there should be for the um, impact. 😀

  35. I was wondering if that curlytailed imp was any breed in particular. 😀

  36. On the WD40 – Duct Tape Continuum, this situation has clearly erred on the side of too much WD40.

    PS, you peeps are EN FUEGO esta tarde!

  37. Basenji: this is so very very squishy! I must recline on it. Oops! I MUST recline on this warm comfy pillow. Oops! I WILL figure out how to rest on this warm, squashy cushion-y goggie…..ahhhhhh….
    Great Dane: hmmm…a sort of dainty acupressure. Woops! A Swedish massage, with smooth sliding strokes… Oh, more acupressure. Wups! more Swedish massage. And now Shiatsu….

  38. *golf clap*

  39. Reminds me of my first kitty, Chiaro. she’d try to sleep on my back as a kitten but since i was prompted up on one arm, she kept slipping down and off my back!

    Reminds me of these sweeties. I can’t believe the Great Dane’s not onl putting up with the sliding but the climbing. Front paws can be surprisingly painful!

  40. I was thinking sort of a soft “whoomp.”

  41. Once the front leg was locked in place he was good to go 😀

  42. Legotech says:

    Around 6 seconds you can see the little guy checking out his own belleh area to see if he can figure out what’s happening…wonder how long he was doing this before his boss picked up the video camera!

  43. I’m….not quite seeing the connection, but Madame Makarova wins teh internetz *and* pwns the ballet world. Thank you so much for posting this 🙂 Back has to breathe!

  44. He sounds like a whoopee cushion to me already 🙂

  45. bookmonstercats says:

    Thanks, belphebe. Obviously it worked for you. I had no luck with logging in direct via wordpress, but I managed to log back in via gravatar.

    I simply cannot believe the relative sizes of the little goggeh and the dane. Does the latter even realise the former is clambering all over him, or is s/he just going *sigh*?

  46. bookmonstercats says:

    It might have helped if I’d scrolled down, belphebe, before posting my comment above. I’ve mislaid my glasses, and am using an old pair which I can barely see through and I’m starting to get a headache. Just waiting for my husband to come home so he can crawl over the house looking for them – they aren’t in any of their usual places. 😦

  47. bookmonstercats says:

    Isn’t she utterly, utterly gorgeous? Ethereal is the word that sprung to mind.

  48. bookmonstercats says:

    I only know basenjis from the Sherlock Holmes story about the dog who didn’t bark – is that a fiction, Suzanne, from fond memory of your gone-but-not-forgotten-boy?

  49. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    This was one of the cutest videos I have ever seen. The Dane is so incredibly patient & love how sleek his tummy is that the little guy keeps sliding off. Little guy just wanted a warm soft spot to take a nap!

  50. *gigglefits*

  51. If at first you don’t succeed…

  52. I love at the end how the little dog figured out to hock his paw over the back of the Dane to keep from sliding off. SOOOO Cute!

  53. Eye Roll::: Hook not hock.. Grr and i can’t even blame auto correct this time.. LOL

  54. noellesbootcutkittenpants says:

    Yes! I thought that looked like a Basenji. Pointy ears, curly tail, red/white coat combination. They are such nifty dogs. We had one for years when I was a kid. His name was Tumba (rhymed with Roomba). They don’t bark; they yodel. We lived a few blocks from train tracks, and whenever the train would go through, Tumba would yodel and howl.

    Basenji puppies are just about the cutest little wrinkly things you ever saw. Quizzical expressions. Basenjis in general remind me more of cats than dogs; they groom themselves like cats.

  55. My kitties like to snuggle up on my back when I sleep on my stomach, or on the backs of my legs. When I had small dogs, they would also cuddle up on my back when I slept that way.It’s both an affectionate cuddle and a deliberate theft of body heat, since bigger bodies have more to spare. I assume the little guy wanted to cuddle affectionately with his friend and also to enjoy the warmth that the Great Dane’s large body gives off.

  56. LOL… love how the big pup could’ve cared less 😛
