Do any of you wear the purple poppy alongside the red one, for the animals who were killed in the war?

Rather a large treasure compared to my long lost little one - but lovely for all that

I'm so used to having had Old English Sheepdogs all my life I just think of Dageus as doggie size lol. Never had a wee one.

It always intrigues me as to the enormous range of size of the doggie world, from chihuahua to Pyrenean Mountain (which I think are the biggest, but please correct me if I am wrong)

Yes I believe Pyreneans, Newfoundlands and some of the Mastives are the biggest.

Not to mention Great Danes? I used to have a large Great Dane friend with a permanently bandaged tail. She was a lovely character but slightly over-enthusiastic in the tail-wagging department as she lived in a large pub which had once been Victorian but altered and enlarged over the years to make a decent-sized, open-plan place but with a lot of old doorways which took a toll on a bony, waggy tail.
