6th & Last Cheerleading Game of the Season!!

As the title states, Tues (1-31-17) was McKayla's last game of the season. (Still trying to access Verizon Cloud to get pics from the 5th game.) Tournaments will be held Feb. 4th - Feb. 12th but not sure how many games, if any, she'll cheer at b/c it'll just depend on how the girls and boys progress.

She's really enjoyed cheerleading. Well, that's not completely true. She's tolerated practice and only gone b/c we've made her.......she said it's boring LOL. She does great during the first game (girls) but by the boys game, she's done. Actually, as I was telling her to get ready for this last game, she told me she didn't want to go. Of course, I had to inform her that she couldn't let her team mates down the day of the game and she'd been told for several days that she had this upcoming game and *could* have asked a friend to cover her but there was absolutely not enough time an hour before the game.

But enough of that, let's get to the pictures of the game. Shall we? 😊

This was another away game and the girl's dominated from the beginning. End of 1st Quarter was pretty close; 5-4 with us winning but by the end of the 3rd quarter, we were winning 23-6! We win the game 30-10! WTG girls!

Was at a really bad angle for the pics of the scoreboard but I tried. Girl's win 30-10 (although it looks like a 0)

Time for the boy's game! They did just as well; end of the 3rd quarter they were winning 8-1 and won the game 14-8 but they seriously had to work for that! WTG Boys!

Boys Win 14-8!

Even though it was a little difficult to get her motivated for practices and the 2nd game of the day sometimes, she's really enjoyed being a cheerleader. She tries her heart out, grins from ear to ear and has a blast. One of the girls asked her if she'd try out for cheerleading next year too and at first she said "no" but then grinned and said "Well, yeah, I probably will."

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. Color classifications being well founded, the Great Dane Club of America, Inc. considers it an inadvisable practice to mix color strains and it is the club's policy to adhere to the following matings:

Pedigrees of FAWN or BRINDLED Danes should not carry HARLEQUIN, BLACK or BLUE upon them -------------------------------------------…
