Gentle Giant

“When an eighty-five-pound

mammal licks your tears away,

then tries to sit on your lap,

it’s hard to feel sad.”

— Kristan Higgans

“Slowly, Anna put up a hand to his muzzle and began to scratch that spot behind the ear where large dogs keep their souls.” — Eva Ibbotson

Loved by his favorite persons, Peter and Mary Margaret, for his docile and affectionate personality, Jake epitomizes the Gentle Giant description of Great Danes everywhere.
