Breeder Judge Karen Martin  4-point Major
Breeder Judge Jane Gray      4-point Major

Mr. Bob Busby                        1-point
Ms. Mary Ann Brocious         1-point
Mrs. Karen S. McFarlane       2-points To finish

We have to give a special thank you to Tiffany Baggaley for her training, patience, and superb exhibition of not only Penny, but all of our dogs over the last five years!  You are the best Tiff.  We would not do this without you.
We are also very appreciative of all of the ringside support from our fellow Dane enthusiasts.
We are BigNutt Ranch and Great Danes located in Northern California between Sacramento and San Francisco.  We are a blended family with 5 adult children and 2 granddaughters.  We have two horses; Smokey, a gentle quarter horse gelding and Aubrey, a firey thoroughbred, with 'Killer' the ranch cat rounding out the zoo. 
Currently we are the home to 3 Great Danes.  In order of their age, we have  Danni 7-years old, her boy Diesel is  5-years old, and his daughter, Penny is 2-years old. 
We are proud members of the Great Dane Club of America.  Elizabeth continues to be a member of the Monterey Bay Great Dane Club. We actively help and support the The Northern California Great Dane Club.   We adhere to the Breeder's Code of Ethics as outlined by The GDCA. 
We encourage first time Dane owners to seek out Great Dane Rescue of Northern California for their 1st Dane.  Adults are much easier to live with.
We are sorry, but we currently have no breeding plans in place nor do we expect too anytime soon.   
Jim and Elizabeth
