Bobbie our handler stacking Belize after the show. She did not do much and was very scared but did let the judge go over her but she did not want to move. She will get better. I am really liking her she is already an inch taller than her mother.
I was suppose to take some other dogs but mixed up the show dates and had to go in the Zion on the spure of the moment instead of the Motor Home.

I want to brag and congradulate Holly and Gary Rake who have one of my puppies, Behr, who has successfully gained a level one title in detection scent discrimination. This is competition for drug scent work like police and FBI. Behr was one of 50 contestants. Of course most of the dogs where Sehphards, hounds, malinosi, labs and rotties and Behr was the only Dane.
Now Behr was competing with many dogs who had trained for 1 or 2 years whith professional dog trainers as handlers. Behr has only trained for 6 months. Behr was one of only 15 dogs with qualifying scores and she got a perfect score. She is also still a puppy so we know she will do more impressive things in the future.
She will always be the first Dane to qualify in this competition.
We are all so proud of her and her trainers. Congradulations Behr.

If anyone would like to see the website of the Central Valley Critiquing Club It is www.cvcc.yolasite.com
I just got back from the Great Dane nationals in Chatanooga, Tn. There were about 400 Danes. I met the black dog I am going to breed too and got a line on a blue dog in Utah that I am going to fly out to go see. So I have my next 3 breedings pretty much planned out. It was a fun trip and I made some contacts so I did what I wanted to do by going. Kitty

Not too much happening but I and another Dane breeder have started a critiquing Club. The purpose is for us breeders to learn by evaluating each other puppies when we have litters. The best way to learn is to evaluate other breeds. So far we have 2 Dane breeders, two Golden breeder, two Dalmation breeders and a Dobie breeder. I fell the more you learn the better we can breed.
I have a new web page on my web site Minimizing Genetic Disease for those interested.
Legend and Belize debut in the show ring will be on the turkey circuuit in November. Kitty

Well Titan did not do anything at Ventura but we had a good time. I took little Belize and she ws so scared at first. We stayed in a motel 6 and that was a new experience for her. Thursday she would not get on the bed even though Titan flopped on it right away. I literally had to drag her into the dog show with her tail between her legs. My puppies have a double wammy their first dog show not only is it all new with so many dogs and strangers but also it is the first time that they are away from their pack. And all of you who have gottten puppies know how that first night away from their brothers and sisters is like.So friday at the dog show I walked her around for four hours without Titan and she was petted and petted and by the end of that time she found out that dog shows are fun. Sat and Sunday she was going up topeople expecting treats. Because all dog show people have goodies in their pockets. From now on I am going to take my puppies to the dog show without entering them so they can find out it is fun without the stress of going in the ring.

There is not much news here. Pistol finally has a home. So all the puppies are gone. Little Guy (Geyser) is doing wonderful in his new home. Jan told me that he has wormed his way onto the bed and has to have his head on her pillow. He finally gave her a couple of kisses. He would not kiss before. I think he was really neglected at his first home.
I could not go to the Dane specialties in June so will try and get Titans last major over 4th of July in Ventura.
I took some cute pictures of my youngsters worried about a frog in our pool. The joys of living in the country. Hope to have a picture of Titan getting his championship. Kitty

Some of the puppies are going home. The ones that do not have their ears cropped are leaving this weekend but those of us who get the ears cropped are staying for a couple of more weeks. We are so worried and really like to stay together It is so scary going out into the world.
