MY buddy and pal for over 8 years passed away on Thursday. Elliot was with us since he was six weeks old and was an integral part of our family. He was a big Great Dane with a heart equally big. I remember seeing the sign that read, "Great Dane Puppies For Sale", outside at a shopping mall. I looked at what was the very last puppy and was told that because of his color (merle), he would not be AKC-certified. All I saw was a beautiful little puppy with beautiful blue eyes and I had to have him. I brought him home and he became my buddy for life. Together, we went to obedience school and did all of the homework assigned. He excelled in everything and was featured in the local paper. We had wonderful times together. He will be sorely missed.
