highlights


each and every one of the dogs we've bred and owned has given us reasons to celebrate the quite unremarkable, yet adorable things they do.  but we've also been a little bit extra fortunate.....once in a while, some of our danes achieve something more notable and allow us to share in the excitement of their achievements.  some highlights include:
