Ad Designing

My mother use to be an ad designer for a newspaper publication. She's worked in that department for years, so she has "skills" building ads. She's retired now, but misses doing things like that and has decided to set up "shop" and build ads for anyone that would want one.

Here are a couple examples. Granted, these are for Danes but she can do any kind of ad, from cars, to homes, to businesses.

Thought I'd also share the Christmas cards she made for me last year all with pictures of Rio. This is how they look direct from the disk she made me, so all I had to do was print them out and fold. The small print you see on a few of them would be on the back of the card and they mention a certain landmark in Chattanooga, TN.

One of almost 900 "See Rock City" barns painted by Clark Byer's
beginning in 1985. At one time, the barns could have been seen in 19 states
from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. Fewer than 100 remain,
bowing to times decay.

From her construction in 1925 to the present, the Delta Queen has had a
varied career. Her first job was carrying passengers on the "Delta Route"
in Sacramento - San Joaquin River Delta in California. She joined the navy
in 1940, serving as an emergency hospital transport following the attack
on Pearl Habor. In 1947, having been overhauled for passenger service, she
traveled 5,261 miles, passing through the Panama Canal to her new home
traveling the Mississippi River system. In 1966, a law was passed which,
because of her wooden construction, prohibited the Delta Queen from
carrying passengers. A number of extensions were granted, but the last of
those expired in 2008. Her fans are still working on getting a renewal of the
exemption, but until then, she is moored in Chattanooa, Tennessee, serving
as hotel, restaurant and unique location for weddings and/or receptions as
well as many other seasonal events.

 She doesn't have any set fees at the moment, but if anyone is interested, feel free to email me (or comment here) and I'll get you in touch with her.

The Great Dane Standard Through the Ages Part III ~1976~

The 1976 Official Illustrated Standard
Revised & Edited by The Great Dane Club of America, Inc. Written text AKC approved August 10, 1976 Illustrated by Donald E. Gauther - Great Dane Breeder & Judge Copyright, 1972

1. GENERAL CONFORMATION (a) GENERAL APPEARANCE. The Great Dane combines in its distinguished appearance dignity, strength and elegance with great size and a powerful, well-formed, smoothly muscled body. He is one of the giant breeds, but is unique in that his general conformation must be so well balanced that he never appears clumsy and is always a unit--the Apollo of dogs. He must be spirited and courageous--never timid. He is friendly and dependable. This physical and mental combination is the characteristic which gives the Great Dane the majesty possessed by no other breed. It is particularly true of this breed that there is an impression of great masculinity in dogs as compared to an impression of great femininity in bitches. The male should appear more massive t…

(Typed for easy reading below each picture which has made this post EXTREMELY long. Also, you *should* be able to click on the pictures to enlarge, but sadly still not enough to read the charts.)

There are only five recognize colors; all these basically fall into four color strains: 1 FAWN and BRINDLE, 2. HARLEQUIN and HARLEQUIN bred BLACK, 3. BLUE and BLUE bred BLACK, 4. BLACK.
