Blue Eyes, Blue Skies

February 11, 2002 – Meet Miss "Fanny Bannany," the original party-girl, according to her breeder, JP Yousha of ChromaDane fame. Fanny, whose registered name is CHROMA Forever Mardi Gras CD TDI CGC, lives in Connecticut with her human family, the Arsenaults. She is three years old.

About Fanny

Fanny with JoeAlthough she is first and foremost a beloved family pet, Fanny is not one to sit around on her ...umm... fanny. Indeed, Miss Fanny-Bannany-Mardi-Gras leads a very busy life. Not only does she spend her valuable time watching over the human members of her household (Judi and Al Arsenault and their six kids), Fanny also supervises two brindle Greyhounds and another harlequin Great Dane, two-year-old Joe. And when she isn't keeping track of her extended family, Fanny is busy pursuing her education. She earned her CD (Companion Dog) obedience title before she was two years old and she is now working towards her CDX (Companion Dog Excellent) obedience title. Fanny is a certified Canine Good Citizen and an active Canine Therapist through Therapy Dogs International. In her spare time, she is training to compete in Agility.

Fanny, who has been spayed and is on Limited Registration, is proof positive that you don't have to be a "show dog" to have a fun – and fulfilling – performance career. Many people enjoy pursuing Obedience titles with their Danes. Others just love competing in Agility events. Still others enjoy the quiet satisfaction of brightening the day for residents of nursing homes and/or hospital patients with a scheduled Therapy visit.
