Great Pyrenees Discussions / Lyme Disease and arthritis
« on: August 10, 2014, 02:13:40 pm »
Haven't been here for a very long time. Lollie is now 8 and half years old. At the end of June she was diagnosed with lyme disease. She has finished her month long antibiotics. But she does not seem to be better. I have had her back to vet last week. He said, it is arthritis made worse by the LD. At the moment she is getting a dose of metacam every night, but even that does not seem to give her a lot relieve.

I just can't get my head around the fact that in a weeks time she went from doing zoomies in house to not going faster than a walk, very careful getting in the car, and can just barely get on the bed.

Anyone have any experience to share, or suggestions of other things. The vet wants her on a mobility diet and some supplements.

Does she need another round of antibiotics? or is it really all from lyme disease?

All thoughts and shares will be greatly appreciated.



Bills & Other Legislative Acts / Good for Georgia

Just found this as I was looking for Treeing Walker hounds.

The article is a little sad, but the part about Georgia making it a felony for abuse etc., is really a good thing.

Anything Non-Dog Related / Remember that bird feeder from last week?
« on: February 16, 2007, 12:58:59 pm »
Hi All

Just couldn't resist posting these. We aren't in the worst part like Redfield, but we are not far away. Huppy has been either plowing or shoveling roofs now what seems like for ever.

I took these today. One before I cleaned off the feeders and the turkey just a little while ago. This is just out side my kitchen window. The turkey could be one of the ones I raised summer before last. That's another story.

It is suppose to start warming a little next week. Has to be better than the wind and blowing snow we have today.

Stay warm everyone


When the bird feeder looks like this and the picnic table can hardly be seen. Lollie really enjoys being more. Thank goodness we didn't as much as they did just a little north and west of us. That birder had been cleaned off the day before so I could feed the birds.

Helpful Groups & Dogs in Need / Registered Husky in Central NY needs home
« on: January 17, 2007, 07:30:02 pm »
Recieved this e-mail a little bit of ago. The lady who wrote is my sister. If anyone is interested late me know and I will send phone numbers.

You all know I don't send out too many  "mass" emailings, but this is special.  There is a four year old, spayed female husky who is in need of a good home.  If you know of anyone who might be interested, please give them my name and address, or phone.  I've included a picture of her below.
Last weekend, Randy and I drove over 1500 miles to rescue her and another dog that had belonged to Randy back in Indiana.  Long story short, they dogs had placed over a year ago when he left, but suddenly showed up at the door of his house in Indiana.  The tenant phoned and told Randy about it and we still don't know how or why they ended up back at their old house.  Randy figures they had to travel quite a distance to get back home.   All attempts to contact their family in Ind. went unanswered.  So we went and drove them both up here where we could make sure they find good homes.  He can't keep them now because of his lease.  The one dog, Percy is staying with me..  But I can't take a third dog, so Randy would like to find a good permanent home for her.

This is the picture of Cassie. She is gorgeous.


Games & Jokes / Where do pets come from?

Hope nobody minds. This was too cute not to share. Just wish the pictures that went with would've copied and pasted too!

Where do pets come from?

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"

Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."

And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.
And it was a good animal.
And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, " I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.

And they were comforted.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged h! is tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.

And Adam and Eve learned humility.

And they were greatly improved.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was happy.

And Cat didn't give a shit one way or the other.

Great Pyrenees Pictures / Is spoiled or what?

Just a couple of pictures of Lollie and her cake. She was one year old on Sat. The other one is pa who said he needed a bigger chair to share. They got that for Christmas. I was really lucky and found it at a house sale where someone was moving. Both sides recline, but she hasn't requested that her side be recline yet.

« on: December 26, 2006, 09:17:37 pm »
Did anyone see Oprah yesterday? She had the Dog Whisperer on. She was showing pictures of her cocker and the new puppies from a year ago and now. Does anyone know what the new babies grew up to be? I was on the phone and missed a lot. Thanks.

Anything Non-Dog Related / Would it be and could you do it?
« on: November 30, 2006, 10:23:00 pm »
This board is so much fun to read. There are certain threads and topice like the one started by Julie I think with the snow pictures from her office. A lot of you reply and tell what is happening in your neck of the woods. That is really interesting.

Not one to keep things straigt, I am wondering if there could be a line next to the atviar that lists our states for quick refrence.

I know there is a map somewhere, but it didn't work well for me. So there are a lot of you I am not sure what direction you are in.

Just read a thread with icicles and -12. I sure don't want to go there.

It would be so handy.

If they have a voting record, different orgs will grade them as to how well they have supported them. Including the Humane Society.

Hope you find this useful.


Sorry I forgot. It project vote smart

Helpful Groups & Dogs in Need / Pyr in So. Calif. Needs new home
« on: August 21, 2006, 12:31:29 pm »
Hi Everyone,

You all do some great things here and I have read of others working hard to find homes for good dogs. I drop in at Milk and Honey Farms a couple of times a week to see what is going on.

I found this message today and someone here might be interested.

                  We are looking to rehome our 2 yr old Great Pyrenees male, Beowulf. He is a purebred Pyr, but not papered. Beo came from working stock and has been an outdoor dog his whole life, and was raised around livestock as well as children. Beo is truly a gentle giant. He is such a sweetheart and is well mannered, too. The one and only reason we are looking to find another home for him is that he loves to roam, and our fence is not secure--and we live next to a busy road and have not so nice neighbors, we wouldn't want him getting hurt.

He is a doll--a beautiful white w/grey badger markings (Even a white heart on his forehead).

Beo is very healthy, never been otherwise, great with the livestock and our other dogs, though he is a good guard dog against predator animals. However, he greets every human visitor with a wag of his tail--never has he shown any aggression towards people.

A great dog with a kind heart. We really love this dog--and will only consider the best of homes for him.
Located in Southern CA, please contact me at: for more information/photos.

Adoption fee is $400


Love all of your pictures of all the dogs.
