new members of the family

We have wanted a Great Dane pup forever! Well I have at least but after our first Dane was put down 13 yrs ago due to kidney failure Hubby wasn't sure he could love another gentle giant.  We've talked to breeders and it just never fell into place. I gave up.

A few weeks ago I mentioned on Facebook that we were trying again to work with a breeder but the chances were low that the mating would take. It didn't. We were sad. A friend read my post and said she would keep her ears open as she is in the puppy rescue circles.

Last night I got an urgent FB message that pups had been found! A friend of a friend's knew someone yada yada yada... some Craigslist photos... some story changing...  from "free" to "rehoming fee"...

We ran over this morning and picked up the 2 females from the litter.

season ending injury

My soccer playing baby broke her wrist last Tuesday during soccer practice. She was jogging backwards when she hit an uneven spot and fell trying to catch herself with her hands behind her. She snapped her radious and pulled the ulna growth plate apart.

She is currently in a long cast up past her elbow for 2 weeks then we'll have her rechecked and x-rayed. IF she is healing the ortho will remove the long cast and put on a short cast. If she is not healing she'll stay in the long cast.

Waiting to be cast.
40 hrs post break

Sadly she is missing the last 4 games of her first soccer season. She was team captain for last week so she attended the game and cheered the team on from the bench. It is so hard on her to not be out there playing and helping her teammates. :(
