Meet Our own deaf
We got a call from Bones' family telling us that Bones had passed away.
They weren't sure exactly what had happened, but he passed in his
sleep. There was some speculation that it was bloat, but he did not
raise a fuss and it seems likely that he would have given how
uncomfortable bloat is for a dog. Whatever happened, his family is
devastated and missing him a lot. Bones was the classic Great Dane,
calm, easy going, opinionated, loving, people oriented, subborn on
occassion, but always the big happy boy. We really missed him after he
was adopted, and we are so very sad to hear about his passing. Our
sympathies go out to his family and to Archer his Dane buddy who has to
be feeling his loss just as much as we all are.
Just wanted to let you know- we've already taken Bones out for a
trip to Petsmart to let him pick out some treats and a new leash (he
had to have a snazzy purple one to go with his purple collar- although
I tried to warn him it wasn't very manly!) He rides like a dream in the
car- was a very good boy in the store. Between him and Asher, they
wow'ed everyone in Petsmart.
He's also decided our bed is a good place to sleep- first night here
and he's already making executive decisions! He's such a calm, handsome
boy- I know nothing but good can come of having him here!
Short impromptu photo session this morning... Trying to get a good feel
of Bones' size in a photo so I asked my daughter Portia to pose with him. He's being
real good with everyone and actually backed down to a 1 pound kitten
last night! (One of the foster boys hissed at him and puffed up and
Bones jumped back and away- wants nothing to do with such an evil fuzzy

just got Bones in. He was given to us by his breeder. He seems an
average pup for his age. He is very affectionate and loves to cuddle or
sleep in your lap. Check back for updates as this little guy grows up.
As with all puppies, he will not be available for adoption until he is
at least 8-12 months old, however we are accepting applications now.
Update 2/12/05 -
Bones has really grown up, and he has filled out so much that his name
really doesn't fit him anymore. He is an easy going boy. He likes to
play with the other dogs, but he isn't real hyper. He loves to cuddle
up on the couch with you. His bladder control is still not great so he
still can't be left alone for long periods. He is well behaved, but he
is still very much a puppy. He is one of those dogs who is just slow to
mature. Bones is a favorite around here.
