A friend of ours, and I made a rock climbing / sight seeing trip recently, and of coarse Mr. Sarge came along for the ride and was our ' on-belay' guard at the site of the climbs. I wish I would have had a video clip of him when he tried to go vertical, he's a flexible guy, he was short of a 360' when he realized we was not going to be able to climb straight up!
He's a lot of fun, and quite the ladies man, he gathers a crowd wherever we go, people come up to us just to get a picture with him! We will most likely be going to Germany for the summer and we are planning take him.
Midge at 6 Months.
What can I say - Midge makes us laugh till we cry. She is the biggest clown and she thinks everything on earth was put here just for her. If you aren’t careful, she will take the water bottle right out of your mouth. She is a know it all that thinks she can garden, move furniture and do laundry. Don’t tell our grown children but we spend more on her toys than we did on theirs.
Have I mentioned how lucky we are to have found and rescued Duke, our 140 lb 11mth old Great Dane puppy? He is truly a conscientious and caring animal, way more so than the average dog. In fact, this morning alone he decided that my garden needed to be aerated so he dug it up for me. He pulls off the bedding when it's time to change the sheets which is nearly every hour. He spills water every time he takes a drink to remind me that the floor needs mopping. When he saw that we put in new wood floors in the den, he wanted to make sure it matched with the existing wood flooring and scratched it up a bit with his nails. Duke's kindness doesn't extend only to me though. He also thinks of his brothers. For example, in his effort to make sure that Romeo got a new bed, he shred the old one to pieces last night. He doesn't want Mercutio to have to play with the same old toys, so he tears them up one after the other.
Ah, if only it wasn't for his heart of gold and his unfaltering loyalty....
We are Dennis and Simone and the pround owners of Star and Skylar two three year old danes we resued from Indian Dane rescue in San Diego. Star was our first dane nearly sixteen months ago. When we decided to add another member we turned to Rene at the Indian Dane Rescue where he matched us up with our male Skylar. We couldn't have asked for a better dog.
Rene was patient, not pushy,with helping us in selecting a dog. If we didn't want one, no problem and we could come back another time, untill we found the right dog for our family. He answers our questions when we email him with any problems and I admire his dedication to this wonderful breed of dog.
