"We're Home"

Okay, we are a bit spaced out from all the driving, but the 1997 GDCA National Specialty Show was a great success, with a record 710 entries. (Mark your calendar for next year's National, to be held in Fort Worth, Texas, beginning Tuesday, October 6th.) Congratulations to all the winners, and to all the participants. Here is a short list of some of the top Great Danes:

Best Of Breed: Ch Diamonds Canadion Style
Owner: Pat Tripp, Breeder: Karen & Bernard Martin

Best of Winners: Ch Rockingdane's Ghostly Echo
Owner: Patricia Kendrick, Breeder: Sonia Bernett

Best Of Opposite Sex: Ch Tinkers Tulip Time V Brislyn
Owner: Jean & James Highland, Breeder: Jean & James Highland, Carolyn Richards

Throughout the show week, Scot Billings uploaded daily photos of the show's activities to his Rokadane web site. This is a dynamic site. Scot is still adding new photos and captions, so check out the Rokadane pages more than once. Many thanks to Rokadane for providing this up-to-the-minute resource for those who stayed at home. (Please note: Scot includes picture of DaGinnie. Big wrong. It is really a picture of my evil twin, the Devil-Ginnie. I am much better looking than that, except when I wake up in the morning.)

The rumor about the GDML CyberNational competition proved accurate. Dana Perry is doing a fine job of creating an attractive and entertaining site for the First Annual CyberNational. New photo entries are appearing daily. Don't miss this site if you like candid shots of Danes. Kudos to Dana and to all the CyberNational planners and participants.
