Great Danes Are Actually A Girl’s Best Friend
Seven-month-old baby Isla and 110-pound Great Dane Harley may look like an unlikely couple, but these two are actually best friends. Although mom and dad Vanessa Rowe and Ben Wickens had feared Harley would not bond with the baby, the Great Dane instantly fell in love with Isla. The coupe are simply inseparable: they go for naps together, play all day long and take care of each other. The parents are even convinced that Harley believes Isla is her puppy.
As soon as I said I was pregnant people asked “what are you going to do about the dog?“ But to me she’s like my other daughter. I would no more get rid of her than I would Isla. But there was no need to worry.
From day one Harley has been so gentle with this strange little bald puppy we bought home from the hospital and Isla only shows an interest in rolling or crawling if it means getting nearer to her long-legged, floppy eared sis. Isla breaks into a smile whenever she sees me or my husband — but that’s nothing to the way her face completely lights up when she sees her big sister.
