 My five generations.



 We just celebrated our 20 years anniversary with AKC. Here is a history for current dam, Light from the first generation, my Guardian and Angel, to their daughter Cherub, to her daughter Heaven, Heaven blessed us with Sky and Captain the father of Light. 

I have been blessed with raising this amazing line for over five generations now. Below is a brief history of the line with pictures and pedigrees.

 

 

FYI Some of the champions on the paperwork below in red can be found in a book called "THE GREAT DANE " by Anna Katherine Nicholas. I always enjoy reading and learning about the history of the lines and the breeders. It is interesting to see how they got started. In this book you can check out the color photos of  BMW lines from New York on pages 129,132,140, and 144. I love to see the great lines in my dogs and to learn more about the Great Dane. This book will show you how the great lines of champions are produced for show. 

Below are scans of the AKC paperwork for VH Guardian, Angel, Cherub, Meko, ...

Vander Ham Twilight and her daughter Eclipse is not related to the line listed below. They are from a completely different line. Twilights AKC an OFA papers are located on her link to reach her paperwork click on the toolbar on the left top under her name.

 

 

 

Great-Grandpas' Pedigree and the start of it all for me.

VH Guardian always only breed with VH Angel to produce

beautiful litters. I was able to keep VH Cherubium, aka Cherub from one of  the litters so the line could go on.

In the long form for Guardian is some of my favorite Danes in this line CH BMW Ruffian and CH BMW Fantasia.

Grandmas' Pedigree "Cherub" for a one time breeding with Meko above to make VH Heaven to carry on the line.

Cherub only raised one litter but it was enough so the line could continue through Heaven.
