Arrival Story:
Dana was a Harlequin Great Dane. She was one of 3 deaf puppies in a litter of 8. We were told that she would most likely be put to sleep if we didn't take her because she was considered to be undesireable. We didn't think so! She learned hand signals and functioned well with them, although she was known to turn her head if she didn't want to "listen".

Bio:
Dana trained us over the years to secure our food. She used to eat anything in sight. One time she even got a box of Girl Scout Cookies off the top of the refrigerator and ate them. She matured a lot over the years and pretty much stuck to her own food and let us keep our snacks on top of the frig. Dana's sister, Smokey, a Keeshond/Chow mix, would alert her to lots of things to bark at that she normally wouldn't have known about. Dana remained an affectionate, energetic, loving dog until she got sick with what was probably a cervical tumor. She left us within 24 days after the first symptoms -- when she was 8 years old. It was a tremendous shock to lose her so quickly, but we were blessed that she didn't suffer for a very long time. We still miss her a great deal and will always remember how funny she could be!
