These shots are not intended to be either artistic or portraits. They simply show the fact of what living with a very large dog is like. This is Canon, a 6 month old Great Dane puppy, who found a mud puddle in the back yard after a torrential down pour. He dug a 2 Dane foot wide, foot and a half deep hole in the mud puddle, which proceeded to fill with water and mud. He had a fantastic time playing in it and it took almost an hour to clean him up. He was mud from the tip of his toes to the top of his head.
