Great Pyrenees Discussions / Re: I'm losing my mind!

I was very surprised reading about all the Pyrenees ways. I really must of been lucky. My Great Pyrenees was the easiest I mean the absolute easiest dog I ever had to train. I thought I must have done some wonderful research in finding such a smart dog. He was house trained so quickly and I just had to tell him no and he listened. I taught him hand commands that he picked up so fast. I assumed it was all because of his high intelligence. Even in the yard without a leash. The only problem I had for a while was him knocking over the garbage when I left the house and his obsession with bread.
Wow I was truly blessed in so many ways.
Now my Samoyed was a different story all together. It took a lot longer to train him and he was so full of nervous energy. He did many of the things that everyone was talking about. He too was a blessing though.
Good Luck to you!!!

You know Jane..... when I read your reply I remembered what my mom used to say to me about Cosmo.
She would tell me that he looks at me with pure love in his eyes. My fiance would say He sees nobody but you. He doesnt even know I exist. But he loved everyone. It was just a special once in a lifetime connection I guess.
My big baby... Oh my
I have had so much loss. I really try to focus on how fortunate I was to of had such beautiful love in my life and keep going.
Thanks for the support.

That was kind of funny. It brought back memories also. They are actually so tall that there head is at perfect height for countertops and tables. My Great Pyrenees had an obsession with bread. I think you are doing things right you learn to adapt. I remember keeping the bread in the fridge or cupboard because that was the only thing he would go after. The other thing I had to do was get a new garbage can that he could not knock over everytime I left the house. I never had to deal with the doors though, that is really something else. I am thinking of those child locks they have at least for a while.
Good Luck and hope you find something that will help. ;D

Thank You so much for all the kind replies. It really made me feel good. I cant get over how challenging it has been without him. I know he was my baby and I loved him more than any other pet.
I read a quote yesterday that I really want to keep site of. It said Don't cry because it is over. Smile because it happened.
That is what I try to focus on. Maybe it could help others.
Well thanks again everyone!!!
Have a great one!

My big boy was fine in the heat after a few years of him with all his hair I decided it was more humane to have him shaved or do it myself. He looked like he was wearing pajamas and he loved it. He started acting more like a pup again and was able to relax. I always knew it was the right thing to do when I saw how much he loved it. It would start growing back quickly and you could tell when it is time again before his last cut for fall.
Also I had a friend who lived in Phoenix with a Pyrenees and she never shaved him and told me that he tolerated it fine. My friend tried to convince her she would give him relief if she cut his hair down.
The only thing is you have to be careful they are not in the sun to long because they could get burned like us, if it is to short.
Another thing that was nice is he didnt slobber at all when his hair was short.
Hope it helps.

I had him for 10 short years. It has been so difficult without him. We miss him terribly. He brought everyone he met so much joy. Thought I would share his picture so that some of you would smile too.

This was actually not true of my Great Pyrenees at all. He rarely would bark and talked and groaned at times. That was never an issue, we would get a once in a while woof woof in a deep voice. I actually loved to hear his bark. My sister tried the can with coins in it when her dog obsessively barked and I guess that worked for her. I think it is true those type of things need to be taught early on. I remember telling him hush if he barked for no reason. God Bless him he was the best dog I ever had.

Medical Conditions & Diseases / steak bone causing difficulty
« on: October 17, 2007, 08:10:35 am »
My big baby ate a steak bone and has had anal bleeding with stool ever since. I am so upset that he was given this bone and what has happened since. I want to know if anyone knows how i can get this to pass. Hopefully it will very soon. I am scared he will have permanent damage. We will probably go to the vet. soon. :'(
