All around the United States, Great Danes and their families will be celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 23, 2000. This special American holiday is many a Dane's favorite day of the year. It's a day when they reflect on their good fortune. And for many, it's their good fortune to be tall enough to reach the turkey when nobody is looking.
According to the NY Times, last year over 450,000 baked turkeys were snatched off countertops and tables by Great Danes before their families even had a chance to sit down to dinner. This is a conservative number, since many in-house turkey thefts are not reported to law enforcement officials. Experts believe that each year up to a half million turkeys are lost to Great Danes on Thanksgiving Day.
You would be wise to remember this: Most Danes have never met a turkey they didn't like. It takes less than 30 seconds for a Great Dane to grab a turkey and carry it off. This is a gentle reminder to keep a close eye on your Great Dane and on the family turkey this Thanksgiving. Leave neither unattended. It's bad enough to lose your Thanksgiving turkey, but it would be even worse to lose your Dane. Turkey bones can kill a dog, no matter how big or gentle he happens to be.
