2005 GDCA National Specialty

October 24, 2005 – Last week's GDCA National Specialty, which was held in Chandler, AZ, was very exciting. Many of us are home by now, while others are still on the road. We wish them safe travel.

I enjoyed seeing old friends and the 600+ Great Danes in attendance. Members of GDCA's Western Division, which hosted the event, worked hard to make sure everything ran smoothly. They must be exhausted from all the work, but they can take pride in the quality of the show because it was so well done.

In my view, all the Danes in attendance were winners, but some won REALLY big. Below is a rundown of the major titles:

CH Warwick's Truley Scrumtious
