Isla takes a rest on my lap
Isla stole the scene at the Better Homes and Garden show in Melbourne last weekend. As big as a pony, this Great Dane was an irresistible draw card for the Toorak Road Vet Clinic who had a stand next to Pet Shots Photography.
Unlike the current weather which is cool and drizzly, last weekend was hot, hot, hot! In these testing conditions I was amazed at how patient Isla was with the hundreds of people who came up to marvel at her size, cuddle and pat her.
She made me laugh as she took many opportunities to rest her rear legs on accommodating laps. Too big to place her whole body across you she was still able to sit on your lap, with legs curled under her rump, and position herself perfectly for a back massage.
This giant of a dog also had the most interesting ears that she could move into different positions, including bringing them together over her forehead to act like a sun visor. Too funny!
