I could try to make some smart a$ss remark about this poor animal, but with all the dog lovers out there, I wouldn't have a leg to stand on.

Look a person's dog is their special friend. I feel badly for the owners. The Harlequin Great Dane are beautiful dogs.

Hope Gibson recovers from the cancer. I don't know if he's been neutered, but early spay/neuter can cause accelerated bone growth, leading to taller dogs, but also increasing the chances of cancer. Poor guy.
