AND the third BHRR Great Dane Puppy Pile x 7 is now in her forever loving adoptive ‘home!’

This is BBBBB’s Flower(11.5 weeks)! 🙂 She spoke up in her own special way and said this was the home for her!

This wee beauty makes my heart almost burst from my chest with how freakin’ proud I am of her!! This was the Dane baby that had to learn to like herself, learn that she was equally worthy of attention and love and she has become super social, curious, a bit of a monkey and even more affectionate and outgoing!! I am truly so full of such happiness over her progress.

She stepped out of my car and was literally feeling at home. 🙂

Not in this picture is 19 year old Mac the cat and Guinness the Berner. Camera shy. 🙂

Thank you to this wonderful home in going through our thorough adoption process and in opening up their own hearts to a rescue pup!!

Thank you so much Aaron for doing this home visit with me!

This BBBBB has something she would like to say: She is moving under a PENDING ADOPTION! 

This is the lovely and truly precious BHRR’s Flower!!

She is now 10 weeks of age and please keep her in your best wishes! We shall update as we can!

Happy Sunday to all!!!

The BHRR Great Dane Puppy Pile x 7 and Sean :p plus one of my own Danes, my Big Blue Bronson are checking out the new yard area being constructed for the puppies who are now 10 weeks old!

They have their own almost 1/2+ acre fenced yard with direct access to the house and the rec room with couch, futon bed, TV, two fish tanks and soft dog beds, toys and more! Until they are big enough to run with zee big dawgs, this is their new digs! They were weaned off all pee pads almost a week ago and rarely an accident being had. They ask to go out and take themselves out when we are hanging with them and the door is open. 🙂 Sun and shade and lots of items to stimulate them physically plus mentally.

Today, they were active and awake for over 4 straight hours and finally are all crashed out for a power snooze, some even snoring loud enough to compete with the bigger Danes! 😀

This picture was taken before Sean laid down the T-posts and we expanded the area outward.

We hope all are enjoying this weekend safely with loved ones!!


BHRR’s Flower – June 16th, 2016
8 weeks of age


Weight on June 14th @ 8 weeks of age: 9.6 kgs(21.13 pounds)
Weight on June 30th @ 10 weeks of age: 12.9 Kgs(28.38 pounds)

She absolutely blew everyone away at her 8 week of professional photo shoot! Outgoing, curious and comfortable. So proud of her!!



BHRR’s Flower – (BBBBB) Black Female #1 – Second born. Born 4:05 AM on Thursday April 14th.

Birth Weight: 1 pound 6 oz.
Weight at 2 weeks of age: 2 pounds 7.5 oz
Weight at 4 weeks and 1 day: 7 pounds and 10 oz
Weight at 5 weeks and 3 days: 11 pounds and 4 oz

*picture was taken almost 6 weeks of age*

She is so quiet until she is familiar and comfotable in her surroundings and the people she is with, totally sweet, happy and incredibly precious. She tends to let all of her siblings take the limelight and we have been encouraging her to show her that it is ok that she is equally deserving for affectoin. She tends to sit back and watch the world yet when she is ready, game on! Playful and while overlooked by some when they have seen this litter, many others that really ‘see’ her are a HUGE fan.

BHRR’s Flower – she remains more quiet, a bit unsure and less outgoing than her siblings yet, so so so uber sweet and she took so well to Sandra and that was her safe spot when she had enough running and playing and of pictures. We will not baby her, that is not in her best interest, we give her opportunities and encouragement and not over the top praise so she has the right balance and her comfort level being by herself is greatly improving. While I knew she wanted me to pick her up at her almost 6 week photo shoot as she felt all were too far away from her, instead I sat down and talked to her and while she whimpered at first, she got up and with each step she was more confident and proud of herself….and most of all, she was so happy to be in my arms. She needs a home that is going to continue our work here….she is so sweet, asks for love now and still remains happy to allow others to be in the lime-light yet, she has strength….she just does not realise it all yet…..but we see the glimmers and shines in there!! Love her….she has so much potential!!

She will not go to a home that treats her in thinking that she is fearful. She is somewhat shy, she is not fearful. She is a real character with us and with those that she has come to know and she is only going to get better and better in the right hands!


BHRR’s Flower 4 week old professional photo!


Puppy Pile Photo – April 24th, 2016
10 days of age(born April 14th, 2016) – Mama GD Marbles Litter – She had 8 puppies yet sadly, one lovely merle male boy was stillborn and almost 30 minutes of working on him could not revive him. 🙁

All were weighed again yesterday and all are gaining well.

The one dark merle male boy that was born quite sluggish, continues to have some aspiration issues. He has been into see the Vet once already and we are monitoring him and all the puppies closely.

There are 4 boys and 3 girls and even the wee BBBBB runt female has caught up to the rest of the ‘gang’. She is feisty! 🙂

The puppies are back to see the Vet on Saturday AM as they will then be 2 weeks of age and time to begin their de-worming protocol.

AND, yes, for those that keep asking, this is a single breed GD litter of puppies AND NO, they are not yet ready for adoption AND shall not be for a long time to come.



All BHRR Great Dane Puppy Pile x 7 in the same canvas basket, the same one I used to bring 14 day old BHRR’s Ember and Flame to BHRR in back on December 7th, 2015.

Within 5 days, only two could fit comfortably into it! 🙂


Labour stalled so mom walked a bit and 4:05 AM Black female pup – second born – 1 pound 6 oz.


Here is a photo of the whelping/nursing box. 6 x 5 x 2 feet. AND we put an Xpen with a door also along the side. Whole section beside the box for room for mom to leave pups and eat/drink and get some alone time….



1) Pee Pads
2) Someone had a wading pool and trying to remember who from a previous thread. Wondering if we can borrow it?
3) Towels
4) Blankets
5) Puppy food – for Mom right now
6) Soft Bath Mats – the ones from Pet Valu are fabu
7) Pinesol
8) Very Large Garbage Bags
9) Esbilac – Powder, not liquid

BHRR has been working on a cruelty/neglect case for the last week. All of the Danes are now in r/q care with other GD groups that we network with except for the one that ACO really wanted to send our way.

Today, this Dane was brought to see Dr. Liston at LAH.

As you can see, BHRR is having puppies. At least 8 were counted by Dr. Liston. Mom is so skinny herself and as we specialize in the emaciation cases, we were specifically asked to take her in, even, if we could not take the others that we then found other great places for.

We are calling her BHRR’s Marbles and one of the ACO officers wants to adopt the mom when she is ready. That is touching news.

Mom is due within the week and we are working to prepare all that we need beforehand.

If anyone has any of the above items and would not mind sharing or donating, we would be so appreciative.

BHRR has only helped three dogs to date in 2016 and this mama to be is the next in need of us…urgently so….

Thanks in advance!
