Charlie is my daughter's Great Dane. He's big, even by Great Dane standards. I'm tall for a woman (almost 5'8") and when he's standing next to me he can lay his head on my chest...yes, that high!....and when he looks up at me his nose touches my chin. He's a BIG DOG. At not quite 2 years old, he's probably not going to get much taller, though he'll continue to fill out. At last weigh in he was about 140 lbs. Charlie as a puppy. Charlie as a teenager Charlie now. This only took 5 minutes!! Someone left the lower cabinet door open in which the garbage can is hidden to prevent this exact thing from happening!
