The Prince likes playing with strings of crabgrass, too
Princeton found something on the ground and brought it in the house to chew on. As I reached into his mouth, I thought it might be another piece of cat poop or some other stinky horror. Then I smelled delightful lemon scent!
He had found a small, unripe baby lemon. He LOVED it. He danced around with it and tossed it in the air many times. He pricked tiny holes in it with his baby teeth, but never bit into it. We had a lot of fun playing hide and seek with it.
Another day our Dane puppy Princeton put his feet on the trunk of our neighbor's apple tree and picked some apples to play with. We laughed to see how happy he was. I knew what he was thinking: "Wow, balls grow on trees!" The danger of letting him play with these ready-made “toys” is---he snatched a peach off the dining room table and ran around with it, thinking it was another doggy toy.
Princeton (born April 24, 2008) is a happy, fun-loving Great Dane. He came to us from a breeder when he was 8 weeks old. He was born through a love match (unplanned breeding) of two Harlequins. His beautiful coloring is called “merle mantle” or Merlequin. He is a purebred AKC-registered Dane with champion European lines.
