Ch Britlinblues One Time Only CGN VGD, Therapy Dog
"Josie" - April 7, 2014 - June 29, 2017
Josie was our second dane and she taught us so much. Although we only had a short time with her, I wouldn't trade it in for anything. As a puppy, her temperament was outstanding. She earned her championship, despite my lack of skill, in just 2 shows. She earned her Canine Good Neighbour and Versatile Great Dane Award through the Great Dane Club of Canada. She was an amazing therapy dog, so kind and gentle with everyone she met.
As she matured she developed a condition called megacolon, which caused her to become anorexic and suffer from abdominal pain. She also developed noise aversion and anxiety, which after researching I discovered is often linked to this kind of GI condition. While being treated for both conditions, she passed away under an anaesthetic procedure.
Earned her Canadian Championship in two shows at 13 months of age in May of 2015.
Earned her CGN in October of 2016.
Became a Therapy Dog during the end of 2017.
Was awarded the Versatile Great Dane Award by the Great Dane Club of Canada in 2017.
