My super fun playdate with Anika

Yesterday my humans started packing a bag with a bottle of water, treats and a couple of balls. I knew it meant something - something real GOOD - so I started to get excited. I was going to meet Anika for the first time ! Yeepee

When she arrived it was love at first sight. I was so happy I could not stop giving her kisses and bringing her my toys. We had a good run too.

My humans and Anika's humans met on the internet - Anika's humans sent them an email because they had been thinking for a long time about getting a Great Dane.

Anika too was quite happy to see me
and I also loved Anika's second human
- she was so nice and gentle -
Everyone said I was a very good boy during the playdate - though as usual I was playing rough especially at the beginning - but we could see I was trying my best to be as soft as possible with her. My humans said they were really proud. I even shared my bowl of water and some treats from my human's bag.
This is not the only thing I shared with her :
I really had a great time. I did not want her to leave, so I kept kissing her all the time.

I love you
I really do
Can we meet again ?
She said OK, we could meet again sometime soon. I'm so chuffed.
After she left with her humans I kept looking everywhere to see if there was any chance I could find her hidden behind a bush. I didn't. So we head back home - and I was the most tired dog in the whole entiere world. I slept from 9pm to 9am this morning. Without waking up even once.

Talk soon,



  1. Yes, life with a great Dane is a bit difficult to imagine.
    You sure all had fun.

  2. What a happy and busy day you had - and yes it was a pawsome idea for them to spend time with you and see what it is like to have a big guy in their lives. But best of all you made a new friend and hopefully you will get to play again soon.

  3. Hey Lincoln, what a fun date you had!! She obviously felt the same way about you too ;-) Have a great weekend, Dex & Lou x

  4. way to share your drool!


  5. Looks like you've found yourself a date there, Lincoln. Hope you had a great time with her!

  6. That looked a lot of fun, we hope you get to meet your new friends again soon. :)

    ps - It wouldn't let me comment through blogger, so have used name and url instead, hope it works okay. :)

  7. Awww That looked like a great play date! And so smart of Anika's humans to spend some time with a Dane before actually taking one home. Though of course, not all Dane's will be the exact same temperament as you,it gives them a good idea of size and drool! :)

  8. O sounds like you found yourself a girlfriend Lincoln! She is very sweet :)

    We noticed you were giving each other lots of kisses - we do that, expect they aren't kisses for us, that would be GROSS, we're brother and sister...sort of! We do it, because we are cleaning the left over food out of each others lips and teeth...actually that also sounds GROSS ;)

    Licks and lots of slobber,
    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  9. Hi Lincoln, what a great play date. Very smart humans to visit with you and see how big and beautiful you actually are. I loved the drool you left on your friend ha ha. Hope you can catch up again. Imagine if they do get a dane you will end up with two friends to play with, hurray. No worries, love Carol.

  10. Oh, that is just so wonderful that you had a fun playdate with Anika AND helped her humans with their decision, a very smart move on their part.

    Somehow we think Anika didn't mind too much about your slobber:)

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  11. LOL, Lincoln, you are so French! XD

  12. Your next date should be a picnic at the park. I bet she'll be impresed.

  13. Looks like you had an awesome time!!

    Woofs & hugs,


  14. Oh Lincoln - that looks like the most fantastic playdate!! And I think it's wonderful that Anika's humans are making so much effort to research properly before they get a Dane - I wish everybody could be like them!

    Hee! Hee! I laughed also about the drool - that is the same with me when I play with my doggie friends - they all get covered in slobber!! :-)

    Honey the Great Dane
