Hello I am new to the board..
« on: September 08, 2006, 08:17:00 am »
First off I just want to say its nice to finally find an active board of Pyr lovers.

My name is Melissa and I have been dealing with Great Pyrenees for almost three years now confortmation and pet wise. I have one bitch right now, her name is Grace. She is a french style pyr and is soon to be a Mama and the founding stock bitch of my kennel (Abstrax Kennels). She was bred to a nice Summerhills boy, Summerhill LL Mr. Maverick. Gorgeous male, and he seems to compliment her faults as she does his. I couldn't have hoped for a better match. We're expecting pups at the last week of September, so I am extremely excited. And the best part is they will arrive a week after my birthday! ( Shameless promoting so shoot me lol.. I am an excited soon to be grandmum! ;) )

Have I had litter experience before? Yes earlier this year I assisted with a litter out of Am/Can Ch. Rivergroves Honor Among Thieves (Sterling) and a Nautika brood bitch named Penny, as well a litter out of BIS/BISS Ch. DieuDonne's Impyrial Acclaim (Yes, Fame.) and Am/Can CH Rivergroves Nautika Fleurdunor (Flurry). Quite a wonderful experience that was. The the Sterling and Penny litter was by far the best experience one could ever have in their first round. Penny ended up with an infection and had to be placed on meds, at the advice of the vet the pups were placed back on the mother. A couple fell ill and we lost one, but the rest from that point on her hand fed, there is nothing more precious than hand feeding a newborn Pyr.

Anywise, I am so happy to finally find an active group, I have been looking for sometime and it seems that most boards are active maybe once a month. I look forward to getting to know all of you and share a bunch of fun and sad stories. I will post some pics of my girl and stuff once I get the hang of the site heehee. And feel free to show me your furry kids!!!! I LOVE PICS!!!

First, let me just say welcome to Big Paws Only! We have quite a few members that have Pyrs here. As much as I would love to have one, I don't for now! I'm Marissa, mom to Dolly a 15 month old Saint Bernard and Zoey a 17 month old Alaskan Malamute. I can't wait for pictures of your girl Gracie. She looks very pretty in your avatar. Here's a pic for you of my 2. Glad to have you here at Big Paws!

OMG!!! FURRRRR BABBBBIEEESSS!!! They are adorable!!! Chara has such pretty colors, and Zero has a kissable face.. :D

I Love Saints, we have a nice male in our neighbor hood, he is sooo massive much like the Pyr males. Mals are breath taking they're eyes hold a story..




Free stack of my girl, this was the middle of august a couple weeks after being bred. Probably my best stack picture ever and of course she has to be out of coat lol.



Her and her Studly Man Summerhill LL. Mr. Maverick pictured on the right.



And here is something you don't see everyday, a Pyr who plays fetch let alone swims in the lake. :)



Mmm I luff her.

Hi and welcome to BPO. I have a 19 month old male Rotti and a almost 6 month old female Newf.  We are just getting ready for her first conformation show at the end of Sept.  I am excited and nervous.  I plan on showing her myself. 
This picture is of them last month.  Joy (newf) has already grown lots since then, she is almost as big as Tiny (rott).

Welcome aboard!! I'm April owned by an 18th month old great pyrenees named Kiah (K I ah). I understand the connection. Kiah was born the day after my birthday! She has a little sister named Kitana who is a mix, 3 cats, 2 bearded dragons, and a toddler to run around with. Oh can't forget the hubby and one on the way. Kiah is his dog! Someday I plan on getting a male pyr.

Welcome Pyr Mom!!  I have a 3 (on 9/23) y.o female Pyr named Bo.  She is pure bread, but unfortunately of backyard breeders.  She's had some major health challenges, but overall she's the love of my life!  I share my bed with her, my husband, and our 2-ish lab/border collie rescue Floyd.  Glad to see another pyr lover here! =)
