Lucky reminds me a lot of Remi my Great Dane, and I can definitely see the Great Dane in his behavior as well as his looks. If you’re not familiar with Great Danes, think Scooby Do and Marmaduke. They are large, goofy, and maybe not quite as intelligent as some other dog breeds (that sounds nicer than “dumb as a box of rocks”, which is what has been said about Remi a time or two). They’re also easy-going, and although they can be protective, they aren’t really the bravest dogs around. For example, Lucky stepped on a cat toy made out of a pipe cleaner and immediately sprang back in fear and cautiously sniffed it to make sure it wasn’t dangerous. While not a fearful dog by any means, let’s just say he’s easily surprised.
