Baelan head.jpg

I was asked to show Baelan at eleven months, and she decided that I was hers. After a couple years of living with Peggy Mignon at ValbyDane, it was decided that Baelan would join my family for good.

Shown in the classes at the Great Dane Club of Canada National Specialty in 2009, Baelan took Winners Bitch under Breeder Judge Judy Harrington. She then finished taking breed over notable Specials and a Group 4th under Judge Rick Fehler.

On January 16, 2013, Baelan welcomed 11 puppies, sired by Abu, Am MBISS GCh Can MBISS Ch Daynakin's Soulja Boy. 4 Brindle Girls, 3 Brindle Boys, 3 Fawn Girls, and 1 Fawn Boy entered the world, and Baelan is an excellent mother.

On only her second trip down to the United States, Baelan made her presence known, coming home from an eight day circuit with one Best of Opposite, two Best of Winners, three Winners Bitch, and three Reserve Winners Bitch wins, and 8 points toward her American Championship, including both majors required. She now has ten out of fifteen points toward her American Championship.

Her last show out as a veteran, entered only one day, Baelan took Best Veteran in Group under Pat Hastings, and Best Veteran in Show under Denise Cornelssen. She was the firstDane in Canada to win a Best Veteran in Show.

Baelan became a member of the Great Dane Club of Canada Register of Merit, for producing four Canadian Champions - which all were accomplished before the puppies reached a year of age. She has produced five Canadian Champions, four of whom are now Canadian Grand Champions, and four American Champions, two of whom are American Grand Champions.

She has given me more than I ever could have hoped for - she is an extremely special girl.
