Thank you Bill for adopting another Dane!

Zara’s new home

Zara’s new home

Zara found her forever home through a Private Adoption. Fortunately with our waitlist of potential adopters, we were able to connect Noelle to Zara’s original family as soon as we got the surrender form.

Noelle provided an update, “She’s doing very well! She has adjusted well to our home and seems to thrive with routine. She’s started to fill in and grow and is now up to 96.5 pounds, up from 82 back in May. She’s doing great with positive reinforcement training and we are slowly socializing her and adding more people and dogs into her circle.   We are just in love with Zara!”

Jackson has a lot of friends and one of his favorite people is Dr. Vanessa G B Rood of Napa Valley Equine. Here Jackson wraps up laser therapy to help reduce inflammation caused by a decade of chasing squirrels and jumping into the truck and onto the bed and sofa.

We’re often asked if Great Danes like water. The answer is “not particularly,” but then, there is Grace and Max. They love to play in the water. Thanks to Nikkie for sharing this great pic of her water dogs.

Searching High and Low!

Searching High and Low!

 Daisy is still looking for a forever home. We’re dumbfounded that this sweet girl is still with us. They say good things happen for those who wait but seriously?!?She was recently introduced with a cat and was curious. Once the cat arched it’s back, Daisy being a smart girl, kept her distance. Please got to website to our adoptable page and read about Daisy. She’s an easy breezy covergirl.

Charlie is shown riding home after her spay. She told me her mouth felt very empty, and she was not sure why. (After ten minutes of her tongue hanging out, I had to gently put it back in her mouth. Anesthesia still lingering!)

Happy Birthday Stevie!!

WONDERFUL photo of Stevie Cook celebrating her seventh birthday. Her parents, Glen and Gayle, always send us wonderful photos, but this takes the cake! (couldn’t resist) Here is what Gayle wrote to us on Stevie’s big day: “Our Stevie is seven years old today and she is in great shape. She loves running the trails (along with her Dane brother Bodie, of course) on our daily hikes and has perfected the skill of being a Gold Medal Couch Potato. Additionally, we think the grey hair around her eyes is quite stylish. She does too. She also loves sun bathing which is what she was up to when I took this photo. We are truly grateful to have these two Danes. Stevie has been a part of our family for over two years now. She and Bodie are such a joy to us. We are filled with gratitude to have them in our lives. Thank you GDRNC!!”

Again, we say WE are so lucky that Stevie and Bodie are in such a fantastic home. Thank you Glen and Gayle.

Donated Cancer Medications

> We have two bottles (probably 200 tablets) of Piroxicam, a pretty common (and unfortunately, SPENDY treatment). This is enough to treat a Dane for close to two months. Anyway, thought we could send them to someone in need if you knew of anyone treating their Danes with this prescription. We filled the prescription right before Norman’s passing in 2017. The pills are good through 12/19. “

Thank you Katie for your generous offer to help another Dane in need.
