OUR STORY

Great Danes have been a part of my mum's life for over 20 years. It all started when she bought a fawn female puppy KIRKLANDS CRIMSON LADY, which she called Penny. Penny grew up to be an exceptional show dog as she was descended from the top Dicarl lines. She was only a few points away from her Irish Champion title when I came along and that was the end of her show career as my mum was too busy looking after me as I was a bit of a handful when I was a baby!!!

Penny lived with us until she passed away at the very old age of 14! She was the inspiration for us to keep Great Danes as through her we found out just what a lovely, devoted breed they are.

We have had great danes since then but did not take part in showing until I grew up and with a keen interest in showing I decided to buy a show dog. We bought Tara, a black female, INNISLOUGHIN BLACK OPAL, at the age of 10 months old with a view to showing. She certainly had the breeding to be a show dog, descended from Endroma, Masnou and Tovayne lines but it wasn't to be. As Tara had never been trained to show before we bought her she hated everything about it, no matter how hard we tried to persuade her she was having none of it, so she just stays at home and enjoy's the quiet life!!
She is an excellent example of the breed in every way, especially for a black and could hold her own against the fawns in the ring anyday.

So, I continued to try and find a show dog and then I got the chance to buy LARRY, a blue finnish import, at 18 months old. Bonel Larry of Daffaluke (imp fin). As Larry had been imported from Finland where he had already been shown he had already proved that he was a winner in the ring and as as soon as I saw him I just had to buy him. Larry has been a great show dog for me usually winning first in his class but so often deserving much more. As all fellow exhibitors of blacks and blue's will know it is very had to win major awards with a blue just because of the colour of their coat which is unfair.

With Larry I bought Claire (Daffaluke She Who Waits at Dundesert), a blue female, who is a half sister to the top winning blue bitch in England. I have not had much of a chance to show her as I have been concentrating on showing Larry.

Claire is a very gentle, loving bitch who gets on well with everybody.
