MAGDRL: PetSmart Waldorf    June 25, 2005

       On a hot summer day, MAGDRL volunteers came out to support our monthly Meet & Greet at the PetSmart in Waldorf, MD. We had a slew of 'adopters in progress' who came out to see our Danes before making a final decision. We missed having our regular Team Leaders today, but it was great that our volunteers stepped up to help!

  Pat Wilhelme brought out her gorgeous Dane girl Jasmine (decked in pearls!) and her ultra-sweet boy Bowser.  Pat's husband Fred also brought their Dane boy Patriot and cruised the aisles of PetSmart to attract interest in Great Danes. At left, Miss Jasmine patiently allows a little visitor to pat her as her mom looks on. At 4 years old, Jasmine has blossomed into a true Dane Ambassador!

Pat spent the day explaining adoption procedures and handing out information.  We hope that seeing Danes up close and personal will help make a final decision for several adoption applicants.


Maxine Yancey and her Dane boy Cisco are regulars at our Waldorf events. Cisco just reached age 2 and he's finally mellowing into that sweet, laid back Dane personality. He now weighs 175 lbs, but in the next year his chest will continue to fill out. He's a BIG boy!

Our Southern Maryland Meet & Greet Coordinator Linda Maynard and our Maryland State Meet & Greet Coordinator Eileen Edelblute were unable to attend this event, but besides Pat and Fred and Maxine, volunteer Elizabeth Allison also came out to offer a helping hand. Thanks, Beth!!!!

    It's the Dog Days of Summer and my Dane kids were decked out for the weather. Jupiter wore a matching baseball collar and leash, and Merlot wore a Hawaiian print collar and leash. Both of them did a great job of convincing folks that there's no better breed than Great Danes!!!
