While working at a steel mill, a small black pigeon flew into the steel and had sustained some sort of internal injury. I had been tending to the pigeon all night while I worked my 12 hour shift and the pigeon did not leave my side.
The following morning I brought the pigeon home to further tend to with a cozy bed, some food and water and kept warm. The pigeon was set up in the bathtub to be kept safe so I could have a quick sleep from being awake all night.
I had woken up after a few hours of rest and checked on the pigeon who was still with us. Being a wild bird, there wasn't a veterinarian able to treat the pigeon for their injuries. I proceeded to make my way to the pet store to get the essentials for a pigeon like proper food, perches and such while the pigeon hopefully recovered from their potential injuries. Upon arriving home, the pigeon had sadly passed away.
The pigeon in the picture to the left is the black pigeon, resting against my work boot. I was heart broken the pigeon did not survive. The pigeon was laid to rest at my parents property where we lay our beloved pets. Fly free little one. Fly free. Black Pigeon is that sweet little bird who passed away safe, warm, loved and full.
Great Danes have been a love of mine since I was a little girl. I was 7 years old when I met my very first Great Dane, she was a 7 year old fawn named Jessie. She was so sweet and elegant although she was also bold and silly. I was instantly hooked and knew this was going to be the breed for me. I grew up with German Shepherds so Great Danes would be a very different experience with a breed like nothing I knew!
I have spent many years in and out of the dog world, be it a groomer, trainer or when I did behaviour rehabilitation helping those that were at risk of being put to sleep mostly due to their aggression towards humans. After several years doing many different environments in dogs, I moved into breeding and was and still am amazed by the whole experience.
I have many goals for the years to come to better not only myself as a breeder and my experiences in this amazing world of dogs but also my dogs. I have already come so far in the time I have been apart of this world and continue to move forward with excitement and thrilling determination. From getting my foot "wet" in the show ring to different dog sports to training my dogs to do things not known to this amazing and extremely versatile breed, it is going to be one heck of a ride and I truly hope for the company along the way.
At Black Pigeon Great Danes, we are a small, cozy program. We only have 1 to 2 litters a year of Great Dane puppies. We do hope to expand in the future although we will never be a large program. Just not where our heart is. We enjoy being small and tight-knit with our girls.
