Owner: Rebecca Peters-Campbell

Dani's name came from Shakespeare's Beatrice (Much Ado), explaining her happy nature: "...there was a star danced, and under that was I born." Dani was an incredibly happy, energetic puppy. Snowed in in Colorado at age three months, Dani invented the game of "Puppy Velodrome," racing around the living room by jumping from one piece of furniture to another, with her baby paws never touching the floor.

In the show ring, Dani achieved every goal I'd set, and pushed me to dream new dreams Truly a dog-of-a-lifetime! She was also an excellent mother. In addition to embodying my ideal borzoi bitch in structure and movement, Dani was my dear companion for twelve years. I'll always miss her, but am lucky to see glimpses of her beauty, grace, and impish humor in her children and grandchildren.
