Happy 2 yr gotcha day Nelly !!

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 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 ? from 72 lbs to 100 lbs !

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

Cool! What did the newbies think of Nelly? Were they sort of "oh..."? Or were they sort of ?
