  • "From Pillar to Post" - hiliarious Dane essay

    When I was a kid, the family had a book of humor published in the 1940s, and I grew up reading the great humorists of the 1920s and '30s. One story in the collection was about raising a Great Dane in a city apartment. Not only do I think it's one of the funniest stories ever written, but it probably has something to do with my love for these giant doofuses.

    Unfortunately, the authors are largely forgotten and the original book is long out of print and copyright. Even the humor collection is long-forgotten except to a few aficionados. So, a few years ago I created a clean e-book publication to bring this great story to a new generation of readers.

    Here is is... and after you read it we'll both be under the bed.

      Loved it!! I grew up reading old books like the one about Laddie, the collie, and Nancy Drew, and "Cheaper by the Dozen." I love this writing style and humor. 😊

            Oh that was lovely! So cute and funny. A great warning to what happens when your Dane trains you more than you train him/her! I can totally relate to the shedding though. We are totally in the middle of Spring blow out and there's nothing you can do about that but brush, brush, brush.
