Wow , can't believe it's been already 2 years ! So that would make her 3-4 years old. I will always remember the day I got Nelly , was extremely cold , was getting a foster from a puppy mill and didn't even know what breed I was getting :) but was hoping to get one of the great danes :o I still haven't heard about a settelment , so I still call her my foster. Oh yes , she still destroys ... just today , I had to throw out the cat's basket .... but she has come a long way , and I'm sooo proud of her , she will never freeze at -40*C , without food or water . She will never be bred again. Amazing what food can do to a dog hey ? :rolleyes: from 72 lbs to 100 lbs !

Mommy loves you Nelly, but she hopes you'll stop the destruction one day soon :pray: :laughing:
