Vote for Tank!

Vote for Tank!

Tank, the wonderful rescued Great Dane who now lives with Jessica and her family in Reno, entered a Dog Costume contest sponsored by Charlie’s Place in Reno. He goes there for day care now and then. If, by chance, anyone wanted to vote for Tank in this contest, all you would need to do is go to Charlie’s Place Reno’s Facebook page and see this adorable photo of Hank and cast your vote! Just a suggestion……support a Rescue Dane! Charlie’s Place is a great place to board your dog. They routinely help our Karen Martin evaluate rescues that come into her home in Reno. Good people!

XL Dane Size Crate Available

A nice Dane owner recently moved to Marin County and now does not have room for her XL crate she used for her Great Dane. The crate needs a new home! If interested, please contact Ann at annhmaddox@aol.com

Danny and Family

Danny and Family

Thanks to the Cronin family for sending this adorable photo of their family with their rescued Dane boy Danny. Ryan is a long time Dane owner and volunteer in our group.

Shawnee and Cochise

Shawnee and Cochise

This is an unusual photo Barbara Slobodian sent us showing her two rescued Danes, Shawnee and Cochise at rest. Usually she sends us photos of the mess they created, or the pillow they destroyed.

Oh, now I get it! This is AFTER the destruction. (Destroying is tough work….)

Thanks to Barbara for putting up with these two!

Ellie and Stella and Jack

More cute photos from Jill showing her son Jack enjoying the two Danes they adopted from Rescue. Here is what she wrote: “The girls are such fun and company for us all, including Jack. He and Ellie love to wrestle, play with toys, and snuggle. he says he loves them both, but has a special fondness for Ellie. As you can see though, Stella is right at home too and keeps us company by sitting as close to us as she can.”

Lily the Hot Dog

Lily the Hot Dog

Lily’s owners, Steve and Kathy, recently moved to Arizona and sent us these great photos and the paragraph on how Lily is faring in the heat:

“These pictures were taken a couple of weeks ago – Lily, our wonderful rescue Dane, surveying her new digs (but she wont go in the pool). She has demonstrated that she can, in fact, easily jump over the decorative adobe wall – that’s why there is a 4 1/2 foot split rail fence outside of the decorative back yard. She’s seven now, but just as aware of life as she always has been – a little grayer around the muzzle, but otherwise no sign of slowing down. She’s always enjoyed laying in the sun, but in the last couple of months of 110+ temps, she usually only does it for about 8-10 minutes and then comes back into the air conditioning. When we were first here, it was only a mere 90, she lasted a lot longer. I think we’re all looking forward to the plummeting to 75 degrees and below in the next month or so.”


Farewell Jett

Farewell Jett

Our condolences to Dottie Poole and her family on the loss of her dear boy Jett. Dottie is a long time adopter and we appreciate the love and care she gave Jett throughout his life, and especially in his final days. Here is what Dottie wrote to us about Jett:

“We said goodbye to Jett on Tuesday. He had a tumor engulfing his greater trochanter, pelvis. It was getting more painful for him to walk or sit or lay down. It was heartbreaking to watch and even more heartbreaking to let go. He gave us so much love and laughter. I have so many great pictures an am not good at loading them from phone to mail. So many wonderful memories. I miss him so and am so glad we shared his life. He was so good for all our family. Even the neighbors were stopping by to make sure Jett was OK when he wasn’t doing so well. Everyone loved him”.

Riley

Great photos of Riley manning the wine tasting bar and using dad Greg as a pillow. Thanks to Tealy for keeping us updated on Riley. Remember, Barr Estate Winery sells Dane Head Wine!

Dozer

Dozer

Heather sent these adorable photos and this note to us: “I wanted to let you know how wonderful Dozer is doing! He still loves the barn and some of the horses actually think he’s a mini! We actually had one horse who thought he was her baby. When we took him away from her she cried for him!” Thanks to the Valle family for adopting Dozer.
