Alexander the Great Dane


My wife and I wanted to say thanks for sharing with us the most loyal, noble and humble friend we have ever known, Alexander the Great Dane.  We adopted Alexander from you all in July 2010 and it was one of the best things that we have ever done as a family.

Unfortunately, Alex died last week after complications from a surgery to fix a “twisted stomach”.  His death was sooner than we were ready, but we take comfort knowing that we did everything we could to save him and that he died feeling very loved.

Thankyou again for sharing Alex with us.
Mike and Paula

PS. If you don’t remember Alex, he is the great dane in this commercial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAKSX4YgSEA

    Mike and Paula, I am so sorry to learn of Alexander’s passing. I adopted my Ari-dog from APRA also in July 2010, and I remember admiring how handsome Alexander was at the time. And also how delighted I was at his name, Alexander the Great!! Just brilliant.

    Thank you for giving him a home and a family to love. Hugging my pup a little closer tonight as I think of your loss.
