This is Kymm Cowley when she was just a little girl, 7 years old, with her great dane Glorilane's Billy Donick, aka Nick. Actually Kymm's parents, Keith and Mary Ann Cowley were the owners of this beautiful great dane but that's ok, he was Kymm's dog and he meant the most to her.

Keith and Mary Ann were also members of the Heart of Minnesota Great Dane Club many years ago. The picture was taken at the Thunder Bay Kennel Club's 24th annual All Breeds Championship Shows at the Canadian Lakehead Exhibition. We won't mention the year since that would be giving out a little too much information. It was published in the Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada newspaper, The News-Chronicle. He took 3 Best of Breeds, a Group 2 and a Group 3 that weekend.

Now,  a little later in Kymm's life, she has a new great dane. His name is
Markus, Divine Acres Worth The Wait v Kemac. He is out of CH Divine Acres Ultimate Girl CGC X CH Meadowoods I'm Stormin Norman from Carolyn McNamara. Below is a picture of him when he was just a little puppy. He is such a good boy laying beside mommy's desk.



Puppy antics at 10 months of age!

Kymm had placed Markus' bed up on the dining room table so she could cut fabric to make a new cover for it.  Markus saw his bed, and in a single leap he jumped up on the table and laid down.  Jeff and Kymm just about bust a gut laughing! It took some convincing to get him to jump back down - he was perfectly comfortable right where he was!

Now on to my show career

At 6 months and one day this was Markus' first show.  He won his class as well as Best Dane Puppy in Show.  Kymm was busting with joy! 

This win was made even sweeter because this was the first time in over 20 years Kymm was in the ring showing my her Dane...
