Hello – I’m Honey.
They say I’m called a fawn Great Dane but all I know is that most other doggies are very short.
Sometimes I see other doggies like me but everyone tells me that I’m a very big girl, even for a Dane!
I love sleeping in the sun, eating bread and giving my paw. Oh – and I slobber…a LOT!
I was born in New Zealand – the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ – and lived for a long time in Auckland but I have recently moved to Australia with my family. I’m still a Kiwi doggie at heart, though!
I grew up with a ”kitty sister”, Lemon the Tortoishell Moggie, but sadly Lemon was taken from us very suddenly at just 5yrs old, by a mystery sickie when she was staying at the pet hotel and she went to the Rainbow Bridge on January 27th 2009.
Lemon - we miss you terribly
Recently, after 2 yrs , we finally felt ready to add another kitty to our family. So introducing…Muesli! She is also a moggie, adopted from the RSPCA. Things were a bit stressy when she first arrived but we are now good friends! You can see how we became friends here…
My human, Hsin-Yi, does lots of things with me. We were members of Outreach Therapy Pets NZ which meant that I was a Therapy Dog and I went to visit sickie people who need help and a bit of cheering up.

I also do lots of training with Hsin-Yi – I’ve tried Obedience, Agility, Rally-O and of course, lots and lots of Clicker Training which I love!
We also do this really cool thing called Canine Freestyle which is like doggie dancing: Hsin-Yi teaches me lots of fun tricks & dance moves and then we dance a routine together to music! I have even competed in Canine Freestyle competitions – they say that I am the first Great Dane to do this kind of thing!

Check out a year in my life!
