Owner: Matt Ryan
Location: New Castle, Ind.
Dog Names: Onyx and Harley
Breed: Great Dane
Job Title: Couch potatoes
Star Quality: Despite being around 140 pounds, they think they are lap dogs, so on a cold winter night they make great “heaters.”
Favorite Getaway: Our dogs love to spend their time basking in the sun on our front porch … any time of year. This winter they were out “sunbathing” on a 20° F day.
Background Story: When we decided that we wanted to get a Great Dane, we went to see some puppies that were available at the time. My wife went thinking we would be getting one Great Dane … I, on the other hand, had other thoughts. We ended up picking Onyx and her sister Harley out of the same litter. They’ve been inseparable since birth.
