Jackie Wood here.  I wanted you all to know that I am leaving you.  I will monitor the list as my time allows but I cant keep up with all my other duties to other lists as moderator.

So I wont be receiving any more emails automatically.  That does not mean Im not available.  If any of you need information on guardians please feel free to contact me offlist,and I'll do my best to find an answer for you.

Great Pyrenees Pictures / New Puppy pictures
« on: October 04, 2006, 09:59:01 am »
I just had to post some pictures of my new babies!

Top three pictures are of Promise (the girl)
Next three are of Beren (the boy)
Taken this am.

We finally named them.

He will be Beren which means, Man of the West, Progenitor of Numenarian Kings, Valiant, and Daring.
Beren's Hope of Tanimara

She will be Promise - Luthien's Promise of Patorama -
Luthien was an Elven Princess that gave up her immortality to marry Beren, a mortal. It means Lady of Enchanting Beauty; Elven Princess; Charming.

The name Promise has a story behind it too.  I was driving down the highway trying to think of names and thinking about the new beginning here at Tanimara.  It had been raining and all of a sudden the clouds parted and the biggest brightest rainbow I've ever seen broke through the clouds.  A Promise of a new beginning.

Anything Non-Dog Related / My apologies for not answering PMs
« on: September 05, 2006, 12:14:07 pm »
I often check my PMs on this site but failed to realize when you get so many they automatically go to a different page.  Today I wanted to PM a person and ended up finding 3 pages of PMs that I had not read!  Duh!

So for any of you who have PM'd me in the past and I did not answer, it was only because I didn't realize  they were there.  Please forgive.  I would never intentionally ignore a request for information or for help.

Great Pyrenees Discussions / Chelle is on her way home with her baby!
« on: August 03, 2006, 12:08:46 pm »
Chelle just called.  She and Randy are on thier way home with thier new baby!  She said she's a little lover, another Pippin in her words.  She is so excited she is beside herself.  Just wanted you all to know that she has her and is on her way home.


I got this email from a rescue person I know in TN.  She rescues, retrains, and rehomes guardians.  She has this one male that is not going to make a guardian and she is looking for a pet home for him.  Apparently he is a HUGE dog even for a Pyr.  I'd post this direct to Chelle but Pippin might kick his butt, so he's still up for


If anyone is interested in "Big Dan" contact Brenda directly at

Go to link below for pics of Big Dan.


Hi Jackie,

I have a 5 year old "yard dog" that will never be a guardian--he wants to
guard me and follow me everywhere. He even will jump into the back of my
truck to ride. I have a special cage on the truck bed that prevents the dogs
from getting out/jumping overboard. Do you help place "yard pets"? He is Big
Dan on my PetFinder page and if you
do, keep him in mind.

I am sending one of my puppies to his new home today.  I wanted you all to see him before he leaves here.  I am letting him go early to his new home due to transportation reasons and the fact that he will be living with a vet and an experienced dog handler.  And he will be a pet, not a guardian. He is 7.5 weeks old now.

He had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard, while he continued to fight the fire.

She is pregnant.

The firefighter was afraid of her at first, because he had never been around a Doberman before.

When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath and rest.

A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper, "The Observer," noticed this red Doberman in the distance looking at the fireman.

He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do.

As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her unborn babies, and kissed him, just as the photographer snapped this photograph.

I thought Chelle was nuts!  Apparently she has a soul sister out there.  I got this on one of my other Pyr lists

But on a more serious note... If you will note her tail.  I've been trying to figure out how to keep tails relatively clean during the whelping process.  Vet wrap doesn't last, just makes a good chew toy.  But this ought to work great!


Big Dogs with Jobs / Live Stock Guardian Story
« on: September 22, 2005, 03:26:28 am »
For all of you that own Pyrs or other livestock guardian dogs (LGDs). You may appreicate this story.

I have an email list for people that use Pyrs as guardians.  To help educate them on what to expect, what not to expect and what to do about it etc.

A friend on the list has been in close contact with me on a pup she bought from a BYB.  No genetic testing of the parents etc.  Horrid conditions.

Well Waco is his name and Waco has grown into a good livestock guardian.  Yesterday Sherry contacted me off list to tell me that Waco was missing and had been missing since the night before.  She was worried sick and asked my opinion on what to do etc.  The story she told me indicated that he was most likely laying somewhere hurt.  Dry lot for the goats had a big trampled area in it like there had been a fight.  Her grown female and 3 pups about 3 mo old were all looking into the woods/swampy area behind their property and looked "so sad".  I told her to get some help and wade through the mess just in case he was down and hurt.  Well this is the story I got from her late yesterday evening.  I am fowarding it to you so that it may be a help in understanding your dogs temperament. (Just to explain, Sherry is an x-vet-tech).

Waco is found, not in good shape but hes home. We found him about 4pm this afternoon in our swamp. We liked to never have gotten him out of there. Had to use neighbors tractor to get him. I had to stich his face up, he was dehydrated, and as far as I can tell nothing broken. But he fought something really big, looks like claw marks ripped his face open in four deep places. He has about thirty stiches along his rib cage, he was so lucky as they are not as deep were vital oragans would have been. If it had been any further back it would have gutted him. Sorry it took so long to reply but I stiched him up, we will try and load him tomorrow to go have xrays to make sure nothing really is broken. I called the vet,
he told me to bring him in around noon for the xrays, that I could stich as good as he could. A vet tech that lives down this way brought me fluids for him, and helped for an hour or so. The main thing now is infection, as I dont know how long he laid in the nasty swamp yuck. The other dogs are on the porch refusing to leave the house, now I have more problems. But hes restings now, and I will leave him alone for awhile, he looks so beaten. Goats are locked in the barn, until we figure out what got ahold of him or have dogs that will leave the porch.  Jackie:)) Will call ya after vet visit. Thanks so much for the prayers, we needed them. Sherry

This is a shot of Waco taken the day before the incident.

Emergency Foster Homes Needed
Cats, dogs, horses and farm animals displaced by Hurricane Katrina need temporary homes

The Humane Society of Missouri has received numerous calls from people who have fled the Hurricane Katrina disaster area and have arrived in St. Louis needing temporary boarding for their pets. To aid these storm victims, we have set up an Emergency Foster Animal Clearinghouse to help match persons with animals needing boarding with persons who have available space.

If you are willing to help people with pets, horses or farm animals in need and have facilities to provide for them, please sign up as a foster home via our web site. We will contact you as we have requests for the service you are able to provide.

Thank you very much for your generosity in this time of great need. Please forward this email to others who might be interested in providing foster animal care.

If you would like to donate to help support the eight-person Humane Society of Missouri Disaster Response Team currently rescuing animals in the hurricane stricken area, please call 314-951-1542 or make a contribution on our secure website.   Read more>>

PLEASE NOTE: Because this is an emergency situation, the Humane Society of Missouri is acting merely as a clearinghouse and makes no guarantee about the health or suitability of animals or suitability of foster homes.

Remembering those no longer with us. / In Memory of Arwen and Aragorn
« on: July 25, 2005, 12:35:18 pm »
I hate to write this as much as I hated to talk to Chelle this morning.  We lost Arwen and her brother Aragorn to the heat this weekend.  I dont know how to say it any other way.

The heat here this weekend was 105 with moderate humidity.  They were in the pasture with the other dogs and goats.  Pleanty of shade, pleanty of water and a pond.  At noon they were ok and at 6 pm they were both dead.

There are times when we do all we can and try to do it right.  Often we can look back and see what we could have done differently.  But not this time.  Short of moving all the dogs (8 of them) into the house with AC, there was nothing I could do or could have forseen.  Because if I could have forseen this they would have all been in the house.

Todd and I have broken hearts as do Chelle and Randy, who were taking Arwen home with them this month.

Chelle and I have talked at length this am and cried together over this.  Pippin, Arwen and Aragorn's brother, did not seem to be effected by the heat, nor did the other dogs or goats.

The heat continues today and tomorrow here in the midwest with a break coming hopefully Tuesday night or Wednesday.  So take extra precautions with your animals this week.  I did, but it did not help..... :'(
