Christmas is over !

                                     Bonjour my furiends!

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and lovely presents !!
I was very lucky to have my grandma coming over (she now lives 8 hours away from me!!). And guess what ???!!

Because I always get cold and got upset tummies, my grandma decided to make a coat for me ! 
It took her some time for the measurements and the fitting but I was very nice and calm and let her do whatever she needed to do. 

Oops, I'm doing the Dobby-ear thing one again !
Anyway, it's realllly warm and I love it ! My humans wanted a black one but Grandma chose the red colour because she said it fits me so well .... we tried to make her understand people were going to notice me even more with a red coat on, but she would not change her mind. Oh, well.... 

 I also look a bit like santa, don't you think ?
I also had two news toys that I love, a purple tug toy and a Christmas stuffie ! I know I'm lucky, but that's also because I do deserve it, I've been a very very good boy lately !

Best news is that I've met a new Great Dane friend !!! She's 8 months old and her name is Ghana. Ghana is a very playful girl, so it is just great !


and running again !

We get along so well, our humans could not even believe it (I'm so rough when I play that usually, even rough doggies don't really like to play with me), but wow!!! Ghana is quite a dog !!! hehe!

See those legs moves !! 

She chased me, slapped me in the face, stole my toys ...  but that's OK because she also gave me BIG great dane kisses !! Oops ! We went to the countryside and ran in the vineyard, it was AWESOME !

She's a real copycat. I drink, she drinks!


We spent 2 hours playing in the fields and then we went to play in her garden while our humans were drinking coffee ( Lincoln kept staring at us through the window, that's funny how he's such an "apartment dog". He'd rather be with us in the house than outside with Ghana who was raised in a house with a huge garden and loves being outside !).

I'm so happy I found a friend that really loves me for who I really am !! I'm sure there are many others that would love me too but here with the boring owners that are always too scared to let their dog play with me, it's not easy to find ! So I guess Ghana is going to become my best friend ! Hurrah ! (Her humans said she was very sad when I left and started whimpering... how cute!)



  1. Hihi, I recognize myself in your Grandma, I would heve gone for red too.
    So nice you have found a friend to play with!

  2. Lincoln has a girlfriend! hehehe so cute!
    hope you have a great New Year!

  3. Very nice coat, Lincoln, and we think red is a great color for you.

    We hope you and Ghana have many more fun playdates.

  4. Hi Lincoln, how wonderful to meet a new friend, especially one your size. Yay! We love your new coat and yes red is the perfect colour with your lovely black coat. Happy New Year. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  5. Isn't it so great when you have a friend that plays just the same as you!! :) Lexi as on of those, his name is Misha!

    We think having a coat is a great idea, we have coats as well! Ours are more rain coats though, it rains a lot in our winters!

    We'd loe to see a full picture of you wearing your coat, we bet it looks great on you :)

    Licks and lots of slobber,

    Lexi and Jasper the Danes

  6. Hi Lincoln - thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog and I'm sorry - I'm even worse than you! So sorry this is late but a very belated Happy New Year! I'm also really behind with blog friends and struggling to catch up...

    Anyway, I am so happy for you that you have found such a good Dane friend! I am also a doggie who plays REALLY rough and I have a hard time finding another dog who is not scared of me (or owners who are not freaked out!) - so I can understand how frustrating it can be (for both you & your humans!) - so it is so wonderful to find another doggie with the same play style!! You looked like you were having so much fun! How nice that your humans can just relax and let you play - and know that you are enjoying yourself and everybody is happy. I hope you get the chance to have many more playdates with Ghana - she is a beautiful girl!

    Honey the Great Dane
    ps. if you ever met me, I guarantee, I would be as rough as you - ha! ha! I don't just slap in the face - I can punch with my paws too! :-)

  7. What a lovely outing you had!

    Stop on by for a visit

  8. BARK! I play real rough too. Mommy and Daddy cant let me around other doggies. It took my late brother a long time to get used to me. I also wanted to let you know you got an award. The Liebster Blog Award. Come check it out and pass it on.
    Happy New Year- Sasha the Princess

  9. Bonjour Lincoln! Ghana is very pretty! Your pictures are gorgeous, muah!

  10. Hi there Lincoln! I'm Luke, and my Mom and I just found your blog through another dane blogger we read. I gotz a new coat too! Sowwy you had to get a red one, but its nice and now you won't be cold. it's super cold here where I live in the winter so I'm glad I have my coat and snood. Hope you visit when you and your Mom has time. We'll be back to see you soon. BOL Luke

  11. I think your new coat is wonderful and if it helps keep you warm - that is the best part. How wonderful to see you having fun with your new friend and even one special friend is better then none :)

  12. I'd love to play with you guys! Never played with a Dane... There's not many of us around here. :(

    I do have my furriends, though... And I have a lot of fun with them: Pistachio, Lab; Billy, Dalmatian; Maggie, Boxer... I think sometimes they're afraid cause I'm so big. BOL

    Nice to meet you fellow European Dane. :)
