I didn't have quite enough room in the main freezer, so I had to spill over into the thawing frige's top freezer.
And now for the Dane Outreach (DO) 2nd Annual Great Dane Education and Fun Day!! Like I said, we had a total blast! There were a whole lot of danes and people and Heffner would have been whining and fretting the whole time that he had to stay in his crate, so he ended up staying home. Which I felt immensely guilty about! But other than that, we had a really great time. I'll sort of chronicle the events of the day through pictures.
That's right, there was a Louise Peterson statue at the raffle!
Marta Brock did an agility demonstration with both of her danes. That was a big hit! Everyone loves seeing these big dogs do this stuff!
There was a talk done by Alison White and Marta Brock about dane manners, whether they're a puppy or an adult.
During the talk, Bess got to meet her half brother Morpheus. They have the same dam, CH Ruatha Daynakin Ladyhawke "Abby," but have differen sires.
There was also a woman there who had recently lost her dane. She came to the event to get her dane fix. Bess was more than happy to help out there!
I ended up missing Alison's rally demo, but I got out there in time to watch the Dress Your Dane game! I didn't even think about doing it with Bess until they had already started. She's been dressed up so many times already that she totally would have won!
After all that fun it was back inside for Georgia's (Bess' breeder) talk about health issues in great danes and health testing.
Then it was time for musical "chairs." Yellow rope circles were used instead of chairs and you had to get your dog into the circle when the music stopped.
And rounding out the day were Bess and I demonstrating some exercises using various stability balls and other core strengthening objects.
And I even won some pretty cool prizes in the raffle!!
