– Homeward Bound –
2005 – I am back in the States now, and quite glad to be home.
Next week you'll have to suffer through one final India installment,
those of you who have sorely missed your weekly Great Dane in DaDane
of DaWeek, I decided
to toss you a bone.

We live on Mission
Bay in San Diego with our 2-year-old black boy Willem Agrippa (Valinor's
Dutch General). One
of his favorite activities is going to Fiesta Island, a normally barren
mound of sand in the middle
of Mission Bay, where he can run free along the beach and play with
other like-minded dogs.
This year, we've finally
broken our hundred-year drought with over 20 inches of rain, so far
(twice the average). It's been so wet that the wild flowers are really
up to their name;
out of control. On Fiesta Island, we're experiencing an explosion
of daisies that stand up to five feet high and blanket the island.
you might imagine, Grippy goes a little nuts when he gets lost in the
dense, flowery brush. When he does, he lunges through the
high stalks, leaping to get his head above the canopy of yellow and
white, until he finally catches site of his "Mawr" or "Pawr" and
comes crashing through the daisies to get back to us.
We thought you might
enjoy this Easter portrait of a crazed Dane reuniting with his pack.
