Arrival Story:
In February 2003, my husband and I made the perilous trip down to the dreadfully dark and dangerous area of Champaign, Illinois. Even though we were aware of the risks we were taking, I felt this unseen power pulling me, I knew I had to make this trip! No, for real, after researching breeders for several months, I found one in the Champaign area with pups on the way. We went down to visit when the pups were about 6 weeks and to meet the breeder's "big boys" to make sure we could handle the size of a Great Dane. When we met the puppies, 4 in the litter, they were SO adorable! Of course it's hard to find a puppy that isn't.... There was one though, one that really grabbed my heart. His puppy name was "Clause", they all had holiday names since they were born on Christmas day. Clause was shy, a little more withdrawn than the other pups. His shyness didn't stop him from coming over and crawling into my lap though, and he wasn't interesting in leaving our side any time soon. Later on I talked to the breeder and told her how I felt about little Clause. Turns out we were the only people that Clause bothered to pay any attention to at all, so he picked us too! A few weeks later, we drove through the worst blizzard of the season just to spend some more time with him. Well, we ended up taking him home, and he and I have been inseperable since. I picked the name Java for two reasons, one is I love coffee, and two, my husband and I both work in IT. Java is a programming language.
