It's been difficult getting all her health testing done due to COVID19, but we have finally finished all the recommended tests: her hips are rated Excellent and her elbows, thyroid, eyes and heart are all Normal.  Her CHIC # is 154961 and here is her OFA page where you can see the test results, as well as test results for a lot of her relatives.  You can also find more info about health testing in general, and the recommended tests for Great Danes on the OFA website.

NEWS FLASH: Ellie has been bred to a wonderful dog named "Boudreaux" GCHS, MBISS Sasmac N Vztop's Louisiana Bayou Boy.  Puppies arrived Oct 19, 2021.  The litter page is here.

Show update: Ellie recovered from having her puppies very well.  Her first show after puppies was in Abilene in May 2022... she won Best Opposite Sex one day, and Best of Breed the next!!  She just needs a few more points to finish her Grand Championship.

UPDATE: Ellie finished her Grand Championship in "grand" style in Dallas July 2022.  Out of the 4 day weekend she went Select Bitch, then Best Opposite two other days to finish her Grand and get 10 extra points!

Ellie's next chapter will be focusing on Obedience, Rally and Agility.  She's more than a pretty face!

Baby Ellie

It's hard to believe she was ever this small!  Here she is at 8 weeks.

Growing up nicely!

She's about 4 months old here, and turning into a really beautiful girl.

Halloween fun

Fawn Great Danes make EXCELLENT lions!  Rawr!

Lure Coursing

Like our other Danes, Ellie is more than just a pretty face - she is very athletic and enjoys Lure Coursing (she has her novice Fast CAT title).  She also enjoys Agility!

4 major wins for Ellie!

Ellie finished her AKC Championship pretty quickly, and had earned points toward her Grand Championship before COVID19 shut everything down.

Owner-Handler Group 1!!

Ellie and Ronnie have also been successful in the AKC Owner-Handler series.  Here she is winning first place in the competitive OH Working group in Dallas in December 2019.

19 months old
Ellie loves Agility!
Ellie, all grown up
Back in the Show Ring! July 2021

Ellie's first show since Covid was at the Lone Star Cluster in Dallas July 9-11.  On the 9th and 10th, she won Best Opposite Sex over multiple other lovely bitch Specials (a "Special" is a dog who has already won their Championship, and is competing for Best of Breed and points toward a Grand Championship and/or national ranking).  This gave her two 5 point majors -a big step toward that Grand Championship!


Ellie had TWELVE beautiful puppies on Oct 19, 2021.  More info on the puppies is here.

Beauty AND Brains!

We have had a great start to 2024!  Ellie and I spent the weekend at the Nolan River shows in Glen Rose, TX.  We showed in Rally Obedience on Sat & Sun, and Obedience on Monday.
My good, good girl did the following:
1) On Saturday she finished her Rally Intermediate title (RI) with a 98 (out of 100) and 3rd place!
2) On Sunday we moved up to Rally Advanced, and she got her first leg toward that title with a score of 95 and 2nd place!
3) On Monday we showed in Novice B Obedience, and she got her first leg toward her CD with a 187 (out of 200) and 1st place!!

I think she was getting a bit tired by the third day (I know I was!) but she always really tries.  I am so, so proud of her!
PS - I know the toy is too small for her, that's what they had for her 1st place trophy wink

More Rally news

Ellie and I are enjoying showing in Rally obedience!  This weekend in Wichita Falls she won the Rally Advanced A class on Friday & Saturday to finish her Rally Advanced title, then on Sunday won the Excellent A class for the first leg toward that title!  Good girl!
