Other: Was a healthy boy until at age 9 got lymfoma, we catched it really early and were able to defeat it in less than 5 months after detection. He lived a healthy, happy life until he died 3.5 years later at the age of 12 of liver failure.
Hobbies: Obedience, Tracking, Fetching the ball

Dani was my first very own dog instead of a family dog. I got him at the age of 15. He was a true gentleman and a teddybear. Dani had a great willingness to please with a friendly and energetic character. He would always try to do his best and even when he didn't understand he tried his best to do the right thing. He loved to fetch balls and cook together with his family and was easy to train with treats. Sometimes I think that the ability of Dani to understand human feelings was unnatural, he always knew how I felt and was always there for me. After my departure from Finland (when Dani was 10.5 years old) Dani retired from dog training, and spent his last years in Finland with a couple he and I knew since he was a puppy. It broke my heart to leave him after a decade of time together but the move would have been too much for this old boy. Luckily I was able to visit him regularly even from a distance. I will always miss him.
