3 , 2002 At first glance, if you saw her from a distance,
you might mistake 3-year-old Stormi for a black Great Dane. You'd
be wrong. Stormi's unusual coloration is a variation of the brindle
coat known as "onyx brindle" or "reverse brindle"
a very dark (black) coat with lighter stripes. Once you've

Her dark brindle coat color makes it a little harder for Stormi

major. She has a total of five points, the last two having been
put on by her novice owner/handler Lynda Dedrick, who is as nice

Stormi lives in Florida with Lynda and her family. She has two "house-sisters"
Dazy, a 12-year-old Basset Hound, and Mattie, a 6-year-old
