oct 11 2017

some facebook person is having  a field day with audrey and litter-- and altho it is annoying to listen to ,, i have to think GOLDIE  MAY BE TALKING TO ME... \
other facts of GOLDIE'S   case..
1.  i wish the dane club would have more interest in what we are doing with danes..  there is a huge need  for danes in the alphabetic spagetti world of pk..ms..cp..fa..md-- along with .. ptsd
2.  Cummings Grant  people came to visit and seemed to approve of our goal of  getting people back on their feet and into society with danes...
3.   I was on  the committee to estalish a vet school in new england-- which became tuft's vet school
4.  Tufts became "Cummings Vet School"  due to the extreme generousity of mr and mrs Cummings.   
5.   blue is a wonderful looking dog..  good hipps eyes elbows etc-- and enough blue spots to be more harl than pure white..  you have to look to find a couple tiny black spots... of his harl bloodlines.. his coloring is new to me....
6 .  to prevent teh abuse by people on the internet who do not understand  dane genetics..  SDP might benefit by co operating with tufts/cummings with  genetic studies of danes...
7.  then sdp could  do as we want without fear of bullying by  facebook.
*********
someone sent this......
Merle deafness, the deafness typically seen in white Great Danes, is almost never directly passed onto their merle or harlequin offspring (only to other white Danes)."
********
and i answered
  i have never seen that in actual print...  but i find it true so far...

i wish the great dane club would stop seeing me as an  unethical back yard breeder and join me...--  my goals are certainly not the show ring.. but a sturdy blocky  working dane.. for which there is a huge need in the balance world of pk...ms... fa... cp  etc...  and i don't sell dogs..so they do not have to fear i am ruining any market of theirs.
i have no intention of changing my breeding practices- based on some internet conversations...- any deaf dog i produced  so far has perfect hips, eyes,elbows  etc...and they all are working at somethign ... facility or therapy--   except maybe ariot... who is still here with grace....
i would like to have some contact with whoever is doing the study--  because i do have records
and there is "blue"   i am not sure of his gene makeup-- he has blue spots-- alot of them-- you have to look to find a couple tiny black ones...
physically he is a perfect dog   so i am not opposed to breeding him to a black...  but i don't know about his gene pool.....
***
so on we go... very quickly... because masterson company left some kind og huge bulldozer here last night.. and they are due here at 8am
so i  "must away"  to try and make water run uphill-- or  more probably ... lower the hill....

  1. of course every one has an opinion that's how a conversation is started but it shouldn't lead to a bullying session on social media here is my opinion ... you do your homework carefully so as to not mix blood lines and cause inbreeding you make your Danes so they can work for the disabled what does the color matter as long as they are structurally sound and can handle the load if someone has fallen Please carry on SDP is doing a fine job

    I see the nay sayer as someone that shops for only the perfect fruit and bypass the just as delicious misshapen odd color fruit
