Kayla came to us today because she was having problems wiht her owners very young children. She seems to be good with other dogs, though she was a bit overwhelmed by our horde. I don't think she has ever seen so many Danes in her life before. She was timid at first, but is starting to open up already. She is inquisitive and demanding when she wants attention. She is a tall girl and is underweight right now. She will be a big dog when she finishes filling out. She is 2 yr. old. She is one fo those long lean Danes with legs up to her eyeballs. And speaking of eyeballs, she has the most unusual coloring in one eye. The area around the pupil is dark on one side and light on the other. It is very distinctive.

We want to keep Kayla for a few weeks to evaluate her, but she should be ready for placement very soon. Check back regularly for updates and new photos.

There had been a time, when others asked you if you had a dog, that you produced a photo of me from your wallet and told them stories about me. These past few years, you just answered "yes" and changed the subject. I had gone from being "your dog" to "just a dog," and you resented every expenditure on my behalf.

Now, you have a new career opportunity in another city, and you and they will be moving to an apartment that does not allow pets. You've made the right decision for your "family," but there was a time when I was your only family. I was excited about the car ride until we arrived at the animal shelter. It smelled of dogs and cats, of fear, of hopelessness.

You filled out the paperwork and said "I know you will find a good home for her." They shrugged and gave you a pained look. They understand the realities facing a middle-aged dog, even one with "papers." - Jim Willis
