Dog of the Day: Gomez the Harlequin Great Dane

Two things things about Gomez: one, he is nine! That’s pretty good for a Great Dane, and he seems to be in pretty good shape, getting around all right, able to see just fine (the unusual-colored eyes are just his coloration, not anything wrong), and so forth. He’s a sweetheart, too, but you didn’t need me to tell you that… just about every Great Dane is.

Two, ‘Gomez’ as a dog’s name always reminds me of the old Eric Bogle song… about a Chihuahua named Little Gomez who has an ill-fated romantic liaison with a St. Bernard. A Great Dane doesn’t quite fit the profile.
