Hey! We miss doing active things with Buster all day! And he is deffinately bored!!! I thought teaching him some new "tricks" would be some thing fun...and a challenge for his bored mind! He cannot get it would have to be something he could do lieing down. He is doing great except pooping in the house...ick! Giant dogs have giant poops!!! :o
Thanks! ~Holly

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Pictures of Buster
« on: May 06, 2009, 03:55:25 pm »
Hi, there! I just thought I would share some pictures of Buster and his family...He is oh so loved! We got him because we live on a lot of land with a lot of wild land around us...we started seeing cougar and coyotes(in person!) and many signs of them, often. I have a friend who has Skylines Farm (in Harvard, ID) who raises Pyrs. We got him from her, and since then have not seen ANY signs of cougar, and he keeps the coyotes off of our land, too. We have a six yr old(who was 4 when we got him) and, so he was really for her. To protect her and keep her company out-doors. She was afraid to go out until we got him. We are so happy with this big guy. He is a good guard dog and a great companion...We have really had to learn the "pack mentallity" with this guy. He challenged all of us a lot when he was a pup. But, now we have a very peaceful relationship with him. You will see in the pictures just how much our daughter, India, loves him and how much he loves her. Enjoy!!!

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / HELP!! ACL questions SO SAD
« on: April 29, 2009, 05:10:04 am »
Hi, there! I am new to BIG PAWS ONLY...What a great sight sight.Wish I had known about it when Buster, our Great Pyr was just a pup! He is now 2 1/2 and weighs in at 146 lbs. He busted out his ACL on Friday night of last week, we took him right in on Sat. but the vet couldn't really see him to take X-rays until Mon. And didn't get back to us with decisions until this Monday. So...while we are waiting to hear from our vet, I'm pretty sure he busted his other ACL(both back legs). He can hardly walk. Just wondering if any one has any advice or stories of ACL repair and recovery...Tha nks!
