Diary entry July 11th 1936

Diary footnote, accompanying a photograph of a Great Dane: THE GREAT DANE. A member of the Mastiff family, he is known throughout Germany as the Boarhound. A majestic fellow, standing 30 inches or more at the shoulder, he combines power and grace. He is of an intelligent but excitable nature, and requires careful training when young, unless he is to become a dangerous nuisance. Some of them, though docile enough by day, become aggressive after dark. Orthodox colours: brindle, fawn, blue, black or ‘harlequin.’
