Lady Gabriella

100% Euro Blue Great Dane

Our Gabby was diagnosed with arthritis in the Spring of 2017 x we have been treating it will pain meds, agility pills x anti-inflammatories since then. At 1st she only needed her meds 1x every couple days and over time it gradually went to every other day, every day, 2x a day until we where at the max dose she could be given. At first the max dose last 12 hours but as days went by it quickly decreased to 8hrs, 6hrs, 3-4 hrs until Gabby wouldn't get up/refused to get up. It was so hard to see the look of "giving up" on her precious face. So, with heavy hearts, the vet came to our home on 9/18/17 to help us say our final goodbyes.

Gabs was so full of energy x life, she is greatly missed already.

Lady Bella

1/2 Euro Black Great Dane

On 9/4/16 we said goodbye to our beloved Bella. She had gotten an upset tummy that caused her to vomit but after 2 days of not holding anything down (had talked to the vet on the phone after 1day) we took her in for blood work and an IV to get some fluids in her. Unfortunately she developed secondary pneumonia which is treatable but her tummy flipped while we were at the vet, which required surgery but with the pneumonia the chances of her waking from surgery were basically zero as we were told her lungs were pretty full.....if she just had pneumonia we could have treated that with antibiotics - if she just had a flip tummy we could have done surgery but with both at the same time......we were at a loss and had to say our goodbyes.....

Bell's paw prints will be forever on our hearts.

 

Lady Mercedes

100% Euro Blue Great Dane

Saturday morning on April 19, 2014 we told our Danes we would be back shortly not knowing it would be the last time we would get to tell our Mercedes that. When we arrived back home we found that our sweet beautiful loving gentle giant had passed away in her sleep, she looked so peaceful when we found her in our room. She was perfectly fine when we left, but was not when we arrived home.

While we love all our Danes, Mercedes was by far the PERFECT DANE. We waited 2 long years for her arrival and we were graced with her love and affection for a little over 2 short amazingly wonderful years. She was extremely gentle and loving, never pushing her way in for attention as most Danes do. Sadie always waited and when it was her turn would always come in slowly and very gently give tiny kisses – so gentle it was as if she thought she would break us if she kissed us too hard. She will always remain in our hearts Forever-N-Always
