{25june2010: About me}

We're jumping on the "about me" bandwagon following Remi's lead.

1) Name and Age
Darwin.  Almost 17 months old... still a baby really... a 120lb (trying to be 115lb) baby.  :)

2) Breed
Great Dane... a blue one!
3) Nickname(s)
Dar, Darweena, Sweetie Pie, Sweetie, Crazy, Nutty, Jealous, and the latest one: Darlephant.

4) Where'd ya come from?
Port Orchard, WA. My dad's a huge blue Dane, Atlas, and my mom is a blue Dane, Misty.  Mom doesn't seem to like me much when I go visit her, but my dad LOVES playing with me.


1) Toy
I have a favorite squeaky toy I love to play with but it seems to have gone missing.  (We have it up on the bookcase so she can't squeak it in our face.)

2) Snack
Apples of course.

3) Human
At the moment... mom.  I'm a momma's girl!


1) Worst habit
Ever since she was on Prednisone, Darwin's become a barker.  She's getting better at it, but she still does it quite often. 

2) Most embarrassing moment
Mom took me out for a potty break and as we were walking up the street I got distracted by something on the other side of the road.  I was looking across the street, but kept walking, and walked into a fire hydrant.  I was sooooo embarrassed!

3) Family dynamic
Mom, dad, then Dar.  (Dad would probably say he's in charge, but it's really me)

4) Your human's FAVORITE thing about you
Mom:  What's not to love?!  I think besides the really soft patch of fur on her chest, Id have to say her play bows before a case of the zoomies.  Cracks me up.

Dad:  Other than that she's the most perfectly clean bone chewer on the carpet? Or that she doesnt take my spot on the couch the second i move? Or walk in front of my 8 bazillion times while on the leash?


  1. Well, those are very good things to know about almost anyone!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Darwin, you sure were a beautiful baby! We yike those apples, too!

  3. Oh Darwin - that picture of you with the apple...SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!!

    Loved learning more about you! I must get my human to do this for me too (when she's finished making all her Dead Lines! Humph!)

  4. Oh, I loved this post!!! I agree with Honey - that picture of you and the apple is the BEST!!!!
    I think I like Sweetie better than Darlephant! Hee hee hee! You ARE a sweetie!

  5. Hey, no worries about running into the hydrant. I have run into many things on walkies (as has stupid momma).


  6. Aren't nicknames funny...my parents have about 15 for me too. ;) I think I agree with your Mom.....the play bows before zoomies are sooo cute. ;)


  7. Hi Darwin,
    It's nice to get to know you better....those silly hoomans...mine call me all sorts of funny names too!
