    Hello Again! Past DOL Members reunite!

    As a very ooooooolllllldddd member of DOL, I was encouraged to come back for a "reunion" of sorts with the other forum members who were very active in this board 8 or 9 years ago. It's been a long time since I've signed on, and I'd expect that there are very few of us crusty old types around anymore. This forum was invaluable to me 9 years ago when I joined, right before adopting my Maggie girl. She was a wonderful, loving member of our family until last year on Memorial Day when we had to say good bye to her. She would have been 8 years old on her birthday in June.

    These days, my animal family consists of a Basenji/Pug Daisy (10), Cavalier - Sophie (5), and my Akita Trooper - 2-1/2. We also have one cat who lives indoors all the time (Gus - 8). I'm in Northeastern California, and look forward to catching up on all the happenings of DOL in the last several years. see you all around the Board!

    I stumbled back over this site googling a dane health question. Haven't been on since 2018. I'll try to be more active. My fur kids are still Tempest, a 4 soon to be 5-year-old black Great Dane girl and Zephyr a 6-year-old brindle Irish Wolfhound/Borzoi hound boy. Both are rescues. Tempest is my ninth Great Dane. Zephyr is my fourth Irish Wolfhound and second Borzoi. He's the first mixed breed dog I've ever had, although everyone thinks he's an enormous greyhound. I've got nothing against mixed breeds I just like the predictability of temperament and size for purebreds. I also do pet sitting, so I have a wide variety of different dogs stay with us. I tried to upload a photo, but it constantly says invalid file, so here's a link instead.

    Seems like forever since I've posted. Lost my Sarge in 2014. I check back every now and then. I don't own any dogs but I do in-home boarding now. Hoping I get a Great Dane client.

    wow! so nice to see some of the oldies posting again, you have been missed! i have been checking in often, and hoping some of the new glitches have been worked out. this is my newest rescue, jorah, 7 years old, got him in july. he's a real hoot!! jorah broke my "3 danes at a time" rule because i could NOT resist that face. eden, olivia and destiny accepted him immediately and although i expected some changes in my pack dynamics, absolutely nothing has changed. they are all best buddies and jorah is just about as perfect and lovable as they come! 45523862_2169419439745274_8378397535592513536_n.jpg

    Figure I should post since its been so long since I've posted anything here. I used to have a pack of seven, now we have a pack of five. Most notable was our big boy Green Bean who we lost on 1/11/2018.
    Its fun to look through this thread and see so many i remember.

    Hello all. I too have been away for many many years and just now getting back. I recently lost my Dane, Dalia. She was 11 and I miss her dearly. My pack now consists of two Corgis and I can't wait till I can add another Dane to my house. Looking forward to catching up with some you again

    Hello Guys,
    I am Bridget Rangel.
    I am very much fond of Dogs.
    As per my views, Puppies are best friends of any human. Keeping puppies at home gives you a positive hope. Playing with puppies gives you a relaxing in your life. we need to take care of puppies while providing them best facilities for their health. The whelping box is the disease resistant place where puppies look great at your home. Whelping box price is also affordable.
    Want to know about different whelping box plans, designs, and ideas for your dog? Read this article and get all the answers regarding your confusions.

    I just wanted to say it's nice to be back! Although it looks as though a lot has changed.

    I'm not quite as "old" as some of the oldster DOL folks - been on for just over 6 years. So great to see some of those whose wisdom was so valuable to me when I was a newbie.
