I will try to get a photos but Penny as one that sticks straight out.  It makes it a little hard in showing since it makes her rear gait look much closer that it is due to the 2" the claw sticks out.

You know when I got Rosie and Sugar Bear I hated the idea of a crate. Now I love love love my crates. Most of the time the doors are open and they go in them to take a nap or just to rest a bit.

I really do not see any difference in the ring.  It just makes them nice and comfy in the crate.  I spray a little on the bedding in the crate and that is it.  I even know handers that spary some on themself.


Good for him.

You may want to give Comfort Zone a try. You can just spray a litte on the floor of the crate. I use it on my crates at dog shows and and mine take naps in the middle of the crazyness so I know it works.

Do you crate feed?

Most females will find in a 42" or a 48" fine.

Sugar Bear is a chin kisser, Penny kisses your whole face, Buddy is a face kisser, Dixie may give you an ear kiss once a months and Leah does not do kisses.

Penny Lane did the same when she had a UTI. So now if I see a drop of blood I give her a cranberry pill. Just pick it up at and store. I give her one for a few days then it is ok.

I have one with the ramp and I love love love it!  It has saved my back when it is bath time for my three pyrs. I bait my guys up the ramp and into the tub.  It is in my shop bathroom and I run the drain into the shower, it works great and I can use warm water for the baths.

A force air dryer is the best thing in the world for when they are blowing coat. If you have a shop vac that will blow you can use that. Take her outside and blow away all that fur.

I am really glad that she is not going to breed a dog that from the standard. There are more than enough BYB out there breeding for size first.

One of the best things you can have to groom a pyr is a force air dryer. Just blow them out every few days and it really cuts the brushing time. Penny Lane my 1 1/2 year old will go get on the her grooming table and bark for me to come blow her out,  ;)I guess it could be the treats she gets when she is up there. Sugar Bear and Dixie have to be told to get up on the table but they like the blower much better than a brush.

How is the play fighting going? It took me forever with Sugar Bear and Dixie to learn that they really were playing and not fighting. I will try to get some video of mine on youtube. They sound like they are going to kill each other but it is all in good fun for them.  Penny Lane is very vocal when she is playing.

Welcome to the world of Great Pyrenees. Your babies are sooooooooooo cute.  It is a good thing that are that cute or they would never make it past 6 months.  Just kidding, I am so hooked on Pyrs I could never see me with out a few.  I have three Pyrs.  Sugar Bear is my 2 1/2 year old male. Dixie Darlin' is my alpha bitch andis 2 years old. Penny Lane is my baby at 8 1/2 months old.

I have found that is really is necessary for me to have one on one time with each of them.  I had a lot going on after getting Penny and I did not get her out as much as the other two. Now we are doing two weekly trips since she is at the second fear period. She is a show dog but when she got in the ring for the first time she was just sure she was a bucking bronco, so it is back to lead time 101. 

Oh as far as the boy and marking in the house it took me almost 11 months to break Sugar Bear of that. For him it was when I take him to work with me he wanted to mark each desk, chair, trash can, and on and on. For me boys have taken a lot longer and a lot more work to potty train.
