Trixie

Trixie was born Jan. 21, 1993 and passed peacefully away on June 15th, 2004 at 11am. She was 11.6 years old.

I adopted her and her brother Buck thru Midge Kelly in March 1993, when I first became aware of Great Dane Rescue. We hadn't intended to adopt 2 puppies, but my late husband wanted a fawn girl (Trixie) and I had always wanted a brindle (Buck) and neither of us would budge from our wish!

So we took them both! What a pair they were too! No one had advised me to separate them and break that litter mate bond, and I soon learned the wisdom of doing this! These two could read each others mind, when they ran they turned in symmetry, when they stopped it was together. They slept together and ate together, they were inseparable after only a few weeks at home.

When Trixie was young I had an old cat named Bartje, Trixie dearly loved to have the cat give her those "cat baths"! Bartje would sit on the coffee table and Trixie loved to stand there and get her whole head washed by the cat! They slept together too! Trixie loved to "Woo Woo" and talked quite a bit! She loved to go up to our cabin in the Kiamichi Wilderness. She "got it" - the idea of just relaxing!  She would hang out on the porch with her brother and me, but she especially loved to find a leaf pile and would snuggle down deep, almost disappearing into it!

She was one of the few Danes I have known that loved to swim. She and
her brother would spend hours playing on the beach and in the water of the lake we live on. Trixie had many issues as she grew up. She developed lick Hygroma's after the death of my husband, I was never able to stop her from doing this. I did learn tricks to slow he down though! She would eventually figure them out and I'd have to come up with other ideas!  Most of her life she was one step ahead of me! As she aged, her hips were becoming painful. Finally the pain was too much and one day she asked me to help her. I am glad I was able to  understand her request and give her the gift of release. She lives on as long as I carry her Spirit in my heart.
