She was one of the very sweetest Danes we have ever had. She was playful and sassy up to the end, never hesitating to bark at us if she wanted something and we weren't moving fast enough! We miss her so much!
She was Kinsey's granddaughter, sired by a dog we bred named Keeper. That also makes her a niece to Teddy and Topper.
Dakota finished her AKC championship owner-handled, and is now showing in Agility and training for Obedience and Rally.
Dakota's pedigree: (you can find more information here)
Ch. Jonor's Golden Hammer, CD, RE (Hammer)
Sire: Ch. Symmetry's No Vrroom At the Inn, CD, RE (Keeper)

Ch. Turbo's Mr. Bigstuff V Holle (Yeager)
Dam: Ch. Calypso's Born to Hand Jive (Jazz)
Ch. Jonor's Full Throttle To Calypso (Cami)
UPDATE: June 2014 - We've gotten Dakota's health testing done. Her Hips are rated Good, her Elbows and Thyroid are Normal. However, to our surprise she has a small cataract and a heart murmur! Neither defect should affect her personally, but THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE TO DO THE ACTUAL HEALTH TESTING. A normal physical by a vet would probably not discover either of these conditions. And although they are slight, we have decided not to breed her since there is a risk that the problem could appear (maybe more severe) in her offspring.

Update: Dear Dakota lived to be almost 11 years old, and had to be put to sleep due to an injury. Fortunately, neither the cataract nor the heart murmur ever got worse, or affected her vision or her activity tolerance.
