Found out why I have huge Skid marks in yard

Wed Oct 23, 2013 9:04 am

Lately I have been finding long 2+ ft long dig/skid marks in my yard and figured one of my Great dane's was kicking up his/her feet after going to the bathroom...I have a pretty big yard.

Well since I am smoking outside more then inside. This morning at 6:45 I watched in disbelief my female great dane tear down the yard faster then I have ever seen her move chasing a full grown rabbit, after more then a few twists and turns....along with skid marks in the yard 30 seconds later She caught the rabbit. She did not kill it just pranced around with it in her mouth and dropped it on command. She did not break its skin but I am pretty positive she gave it internal injuries....since I had no problem grabbing it behind the neck and carrying it down the street and threw it in the woods to possibly recover since rabbits are still full of worms this time of year...at least that was what I was taught.

It looked like a Great white shark chasing a seal on land...truly impressive moves/speed by my dog and the rabbit.

Would you expect anything less from such a breed?

That dog was doing what it was made for. I often tell people that the most understated and marvelous pieces of technology are dogs. Just look at them and all the benefits that they bring us.

Great danes were bred for boar hunting with their size to pin the pigs and ability to hop out of the way of razor sharp tusks...not chase down rabbits. Thats for terriers and jack russel type dogs. God I wish I had my Phone in my pocket so I could have filmed it.. it was truly amazing the agility of a 165lb dog.

Besides my male running with deer and fitting in size wize...none of my other 3 danes I have owned showed that great white Imma gonna get you attitude.

I stopped reading at skid marks, and assumed you just didn't wipe like you should.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.

Hah...I wipe buddie:)

I did own 2 barkless Basenji's now those dogs were lightning fast and super maneuverable catching everything from squirrels rabbbit's and many breeds of birds. Very cool and clean dogs around 35lbs. They are from africa and one of the oldest breeds around. The egyptian pharaohs kept them along with there larger cousin the pharaoh hound....also a very clean breed with no smell.....the only smell my basenjis gave off was their feet smelled exactly like fritos:)

Do you routinely sniff your dogs' feet?

My friends live out in the woods and got a boxer (from relatives it had outgrown). Bunny parts everywhere.

I have a cairn terrier (you know like Toto) and he is an excellent squirrel catcher.

That is a pretty athletic Great Dane you have! Chasing rabbits is definitely something that they do not usually excel at.

My grandparents' female Great Dane managed to catch and eat one of the farm cats. Which I felt was pretty impressive!
