Pretty Nelly certainly knows how to relax. :cloud9: I think it must be a thing with big long-legged dogs cuz my Chase does the same thing. :D

Yes she is :frown: other then the leaking blood, not a lot because she's always cleaning herself (and Bailey helps too :yuck: ) her behavior is the same.

This couch used to be Daisy's favorite place. No other dog dared to sleep on it. :p And now it's Nelly's. She loves when I put a blancket on her on cold evenings. :cloud9:

Nothing yet and I'm in no hurry to hear about a trial date...even if I'm 99% sure she's not getting them back, there's still the 1%.....

:lovestruck: She really knows how to take advantage of a loveseat, doesn't she? :D

I took a walk today (with a friend, no dogs) and we met up with a couple walking the other way who had a mastiff, a large border collie and a great dane. They'd just had the dane for three weeks--when they got her, she'd just weaned her litter so she was still pretty teaty today, but beautiful! Looked a lot like Nelly :lovestruck: I wanted to pet her, but the couple said they were still getting to know her and didn't know how she'd react to strangers (although I saw absolutely no aggression in her demeanor). So I contented myself by watching her while I played with the mastiff and the border collie a bit, instead. :D :cloud9: Really a lovely fur family. :thumbs up

What are the odds ? There's not a lot of brindle danes , anyway, not here in Quebec. People seem to go for the Harlequin ones. Cool mixt of pups they had , mastiff , border collie and a great dane !

So that's a brindle, eh? What makes a harlequin? Patches? hazel is great dane challenged :o If it's not white and spotted, hazel hasn't got a clue! :D

oh, and what's a 'merle'? :confused:

I get mixt up with the french and english version of the colours , Harlequin might be in french for black and white. Merle is grey / blue (I think)

Well, they're all gorgeous as far as hazel is concerned! :D But I think I like the brindles like Nelly the best :thumbs up They remind me of tigers. :D

SHE is gorgeous Frenchy! :) AND I know who looks just like her! ;)

http://hometown.aol.com/greatdanerescue/colors.html is a link to Great Dane Colours If you want a better picture of a Blue Brindle; look at LP's post with pictures of Mudslide and if you wish to see a Fawn Blue Merle; look at Jenni in that thread by LP. http://www.pets.ca/forum/showthread.php?t=42640 (Hopefully, I posted that correctly? :confused: )

My Dragon is also a Brindle; an Onyx yet I am a 'suck' for them all and I guess that is why I am owned by Danes of several colours! :D

Is it August 25th yet?????? I cannot wait for you to come and visit again!

The last I had heard about a court date was that it could be in October yet I have seen some cases postponed for years.

She really looks great Frenchy! :highfive:

Wow I didn't realize only a couple of colours are qualified for showing. The Danes I've seen out here were Tiger Brindle - didn't look like Mudslide, he looked like a Boxers' Tiger brindle w/predominately orange (more orange than Nelly), Harlequinn(black on white) & Fawn

They are all gorgeous any colour they come in!:lovestruck:

These 2 didn't work:sad:

Soul, Gracie, Dyce & Fancy have great markings :lovestruck: can you tell I like black & whites & Merlequin :D
Sweet baby Frost T was adorable :lovestruck: :cloud9:

I like the pure blacks too they look elegant even when they are romping around w/long gangly legs:D It's so cute how playful they are considering their size, unfortunately their lifespan isn't very long compared to medium-large breeds.

Who died Chico2 ? The owner or the dog ? Is it a true story ?

If anyone deserves her very own couch, it's Nelly :cloud9: . She looks almost camouflaged with that blankie on it.

Rather than try to find good visiting dates to BHRR, I think I'm just going to "squat" our camper down somewhere on the property and invite myself over for coffee and doggie slobber every morning :D . Hey, maybe we can build our our dream dog village there :D ? Nelly would fit right in and so would Bailey and Sam. You think Gwen would notice? Gwennie, you're gonna wake up one morning to see a whole caravan set up in the horse pasture :eek:

Thanks Erykah , Nelly is 100% part of the pack now. Last night , all 3 jumped on the bed to sleep while I tried to find a spot for the other half of my body :laughing:

Frenchy,the book is not about the dog per say,but he has a big part in it and he was poisoned by a jealous psycho in the end.
Not a true story,just one of my many mysterybooks...

LOL I will be here on August 11th SO come on the 11th AND the 25th! :D Works for me! We can have a birthday party for your sister here, with complimentary dog slobber to go! :D

As for Miss Gracie; she was adopted last November so you would have to take the 'sneak' part up with her new mom! ;) She was adopted along with Dodger. I always called Miss Gracie, my 'KangaDane' FOR my goodness she could jump straight up in one spot SOOOOO high!

LP,

We have a 148 acres so when are you coming to build that village???? I want to make sure I have the coffee brewing! ;) :)
