SHEBA AND I, FALL 2012
Our great danes are a big part of our life. We live on a six acre ranch in the very northwest corner of Montana. Our dogs, kids, and various other critters have the run of the place as well as the house. I have been involved in animal rescue for several years and worked at a veterinary hospital for eight years. I have always been impressed with the temperament of the great dane, they are absolutely wonderful around the kids and they make great companions. My dogs are raised with my four children the youngest being 5. We also have horses, cats, and some pet turkeys, as well as a bunch of wild turkeys that hang around, deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, and an occasional moose. I feel much better about our walks in the wilderness having the dogs with me! They go with horseback riding, hiking, and to many events, they even have their own packs! All of my dogs live inside our home as part of our family and that is the only kind of home I will let my puppies or rescues go to. These are not outside dogs. Not to say they don't love playing outside, but the majority of the time they would rather be curled up on a nice bed inside, preferrably on or next to one of us.
