Ch. Sherons Betty D Grandy "Betty" is where KC Danes began.
Betty is our first show dog and our second Great Dane.  She is out of BIS BISS Ch. Penadanes Daynkn Solitary Man and Ch. Sherons Captive Heart Grandy, breeder: Sherry & Ron Acena.  
Betty is a lovely bitch, total breed type she moves like a dream and has the sweetest temperament.  She pointed out at 15 months old and had to wait for a major show to come along for her to finish that was just three months later.  Betty took Brood Bitch (below) at the Great Dane Club of Northern California Specialty in 2005 under judge Susan Yotive - Her Daughter Dazzle took Best of Breed the year before.
Betty has been health tested, Echo cardiogram - Normal, Thyroid - Normal, Hips - good, Elbows - Normal, Eyes - Normal.

Betty is 7 1/2 years old and looks fabulous, she still acts like a puppy 
Betty is shown above just two weeks shy of her 8th birthday winning Best Veteran and an Award of merit.  Thank you Judge Ray Goldstone.
Betty is pictured above taking Best Veteran and Best Opposite Sex at the MBGDC Speciality out of the 8 plus verteran class, awarded by breeder judge Lester Mapes.  Betty's legacy lives on through her children.   Betty produced seven dogs of which six finished their AKC Championship and the seventh just needed a major to complete hers.

Dog ownership is like a rainbow.  
Puppies are the joy at one end.  
Old dogs are the treasure at the other
