Okay, check this out....
Don & Penny Mikeman whelped the litter Odin is out of on April 19th which was our 7th wedding anniversary.  Nina Ornolt's mother's birthday is also April 19th.  Don Mikeman & Mike Penny are NOT the same guy as so many confuse their names in print.  But Penny Mikeman's birthday is Dec 2nd and Mike Penny's birthday is Dec 1st!  WOW. And Mike Penny's mom's name is Dagmar Penny...so how weird is that!   And we like to add that had Penny married Mike, my name would be Penny Penny...isn't that funny!

I think this is one Team that was pre-destined to be!

Heart of Texas & Alamo GDC's Combined Specialty Week-end, Hutto, TX Jan 20 & 39, 2005

This puppy is a delightful soul to be around.  He loves his mom, Nina and is being trained for both rings (obedience and conformation).  As are pups, you will see him perhaps get his handler's signals misconstrued (and I promise you it's a handler error, not the puppy's fault as signals change from trainer to trainer).  
Anyhow, Odin has already been in the ring 3 week-ends with 4 different handlers and come out with 3 winner's dog ribbons, 2 Reserve Winner's Dog and 1 Puppy Best of Breed & Group 2, as well as stellar comments about his breed potential & judge's consideration of him.  Thank you judges!  We love that no matter who shows him, you can find him worthy of your point!
We are ever so pleased to bring a balanced and happy puppy out to represent our 16 years in Great Danes.

We proudly present to you
Generation Dagmar
Odin's Florida trip he finds himself in the ribbons and in beautiful e-mail comments by exhibitors and competitors alike.  We are genuinely delighted with this handsome boy.  Thank you to Jeff Brucker for a wonderful presentation of our baby boy.
