Inhumane?

Bubba and I walked to work yesterday morning behind a Great Dane. He was huge. H-U-G-E. Probably bigger than Bubba if he stood up, which I guess is normal for a Great Dane. But this is not something you normally see on a NYC sidewalk. Tiny dogs you can fit in your purse, a la Paris Hilton? Yes. Dogs that you KNOW weigh more than you? Not so much. Where in the hell do they put this dog? I think it's a crime to have big dogs in small apartments. And that's pretty much all that's left in NYC.

Inhumane, I tell ya.

Depends on the breed. MAny large dogs actually don't need/want to run around a lot. Really, it is just hard on them and their joints. Conversely, many smaller dogs, like a border collie, need to run and work a lot more than they reasonably can in the city.

The real problem with the huge dog, is the huge mess, but that is the owner's choice...

Well, I was thinking more from a space standpoint in a small apartment, not necessarily from a run-around-the-yard standpoint. That dog would not fit into my apartment. Or yours.

But that's likely true. I don't see that Great Dane running around all that much.

I would not own an animal whose poop is bigger than my own, unless it lived in a stable somewhere and I didn't have to clean up after it!
