Am./Cdn. Ch. ThunderAlley's Bold Chevron
(BIS Am. Ch. Windane's Zephyr X Ch. Jebas Diamond Girl)
When purchasing my first Great Dane, over twenty years ago, I was fortunate enough to aquire a gorgeous brindle male puppy, out of top American bloodlines, from Carol and Bill Gray of ThunderAlley Kennels. I did not realise, at the time, that this beautiful boy would spark an obsession in me that has yet to burn out. 'Chevy', as he was affectionately known, was to be my introduction into the world of Showing and Breeding.
From the time Chevy was old enough to step into a show ring he never stopped proving himself to be the Champion show dog that he was bred to be. He quickly finished his Canadian Championship and then was swept off to the US where he aquired his American Championship in the same quick fashion. Along the way, at sixteen months of age, Chevy competed at the prestigious Westchester Show where he was awarded Best Of Winners over an entry of 233 Great Danes. A win that most Great Dane breeders and owners hope for but never have the pleasure of experiencing. Chevy went on to become the sire of multiple Champion get before retiring to the life of 'couch potato'.
