** Seven years later, the anchorwoman, Randene Neill, was getting ready to leave the show. On her last full day at the network, the crew brought Ginger back. Ginger was now ten years old, officially a senior dog, had mellowed a lot, and had gray fur around her nose. Then Ginger saw Randene, [[HeartwarmingMoment recognized her, and jumped up on the couch and started giving Randene puppy kisses again.]]

* StephaniePlum, or rather her on-again off-again boyfriend Joe Morelli, owns Bob, a vaguely Golden Retriever-shaped blob of fur. He [[BigEater has an appetite]] to match his size and enthusiasm, and isn't very picky. Joe once left him in his car, and when he came back, Bob had eaten ''the front seat''.

Sometimes [[CanisMajor the "big" part can be taken to extremes]] (see the mention of ''Clifford'', below) or have the dog be big enough(or the kid small enough) to [[HorseOfADifferentColor ride on]]. In RealLife, [[SquareCubeLaw large dogs tend to have shorter life spans than their smaller counterparts]], but this is mostly glossed over in fiction.

In real life you should never allow a child to ride on a dog's back, even if the dog allows it. Big dogs especially have hip and back troubles this will make worse. If you see a child you know doing this, get them to stop.

* The Cane Corso, or [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cane_Corso Italian mastiff]], might look imposing at first glance thanks to naturally scowly eyebrows, but personality-wise they're mostly just big, jowly doofs. Most of the time Cane Corsos are quiet, patient, and loving, but they're a rare example that also serves as good guard dogs due to being very loyal to and protective of their family.

* A word for those looking to get into veterinary medicine, or even if you're just waiting for your turn in the vet's office: a lot of these breeds are less friendly under hospital conditions. This is true of many animals; the stress that comes along with being in pain, sick, or smelling the fear and illness of other animals makes for a very frightening environment. Always be cautious when dealing with an animal in the hospital, especially these big fellows who can seriously hurt you. And don't hold it against them if they react poorly. Odds are, they're much friendlier when they're almost anywhere else.
