FLASH!!!!!   FIRST EVER!!!!!  FENDER IS AWARDED BEST IN FUTURITY AT THE 2012 GREAT DANE NATIONAL   10/23/2012 IN TOPEKA, KS.  FIRST MANTLE IN THE HISTORY OF THE BREED TO BE AWARDED BEST IN FUTURITY.  WE ARE SO PROUD!!!



My name is Betsy Phelan and I live on 4 acres outside a small town in Oklahoma with my husband Jeff. We raised four children who are grown now.  My love affair with Great Danes began in 1985 when bought my first pet.   I attended a local dog show and fell in love with the harlequins.  I had seen one of the all time winningest harlequins at that time compete at this local show and I had to get me "one of those".     I bought my first show potential great dane female harlequin from a breeder in the Kansas CIty area, Mary Loftin, who had some beautiful ones.   Mary had bought several of her danes from long time very successful Riverwood harlequins bred by Eva Robinson.
After I got started and with a very limited breeding program, maybe 10 litters in 25 years, I have managed to produce over 15 AKC conformation champions, but who needs to count.   Among those champions I had three danes in the Top Twenty and one to be BIS at the 2006 Great Dane National Specialty, BISS Ch. Orion's EZ Cash, AOM (3), HOF.   Felicity was very competitive from the start and at her first National Specialty as a puppy took RWB and the next National Specialty was awarded an AOM in the breed ring, as a teenager.   The next year the National Specialty is when she got the BOB!!!  And, the next two years at the National Specialty was awarded AOM in the breed ring  It was a very exciting time for me and her handler Linda Cain.  I think I had the best time of my showing career with Felicity and Linda.  They were a great pair....a team.....    Felicity is retired of course now and very healthy at 8 1/2 years old.    She produced one litter of gorgeous puppies and now her grandbabies are being successful in the show ring. 



Litter due on 11/2/2012.  Trinity was bred to Fender!!!  We are so excited!!!!
