Scooby-Doo Sid

Sid the Great Dane

Sid the Great Dane

I bumped into Sid a couple of weeks ago as he was taking his two human minions for a walk along the seawall. I asked Sid if he’d done any modeling before, and he said that people were always describing him as a leggy blonde. A couple of days later he was chauffeured over to the studio and happily struck a few poses for the camera.

I was going to point out that Sid looked at little like Scooby-Doo, but this would have been a real insult to a Great Dane as it is common knowledge that Scooby-Doo was modeled on the exact opposite of what a champion Great Dane should look like.

Takamoto consulted a studio colleague who happened to be a breeder of Great Danes. After learning the characteristics of a prize-winning Great Dane from her, Takamoto proceeded to break most of the rules and designed Too Much with overly bowed legs, a double chin, and a sloped back, among other abnormalities. Wikipedia

Thanks very much to Sid and his two personal assistants. Hope you like the photos 🙂
