I'm posting for the first time!
« on: April 03, 2007, 12:16:46 pm »
Hi, I've been lurking here since last fall but I've been rather shy about posting (obviously). ::) It's great to find such a nice group of dedicated dog lovers!  I'm mom to 3 skin kids, 3 canine fur kids and our kitties.  We have Daisy, a very sweet spayed 8 y/o Golden Ret./Yellow Lab cross that we've had since puppyhood and we've had 2 Pyrs in the past. Our first Pyr we lost to old age and our second we had to PTS last year due to bone cancer and it just broke our hearts.  I found BPO while we were grieving and you've all been a great comfort to me and an inspiration to rescue our latest additions to our family.  We recently added two new Pyrs to our family. Since February we've adopted Cassie, a 23 month old spayed female GP that we adopted from an elderly couple that were having health problems and Sammy a 3-5 yr old neutered male GP that came to us from GP Rescue.  Cassie had been  well loved and cared for and she is a healthy, happy cuddle bug.  Sammy was removed from his former "home" by animal control due to severe abuse and neglect. :( He was only 68# and shaved due to mats when he came to rescue and you could count every rib on him.  We'll never really know how much he suffered, but he has the sweetest eyes and the biggest heart you can imagine.  He is doing well now, gaining weight and strength and we sure love him. Amazingly, they both originally came from the same town (5 hrs from us), so we know that they were meant to be!  We now have our Golden Pyr pack that we've always wanted and we couldn't be happier.  Thank you all for the inspiration to rescue!  ;D

And my pups:
Daisy a 9 y/o Golden/Lab mix
Sammy a 6-7(?) y/o Great Pyrenees adopted 3/07
Cassie a 3 y/o Pyr/Mystery Snuggle Bunny mix adopted 2/07

Hello and welcome!  How wonderful of you to rescue those two pyrs in need.  I'd love to see pix of your crew.

My name is Chris, and my furfamily consists of Keiko, an almost 9 yr old husky/shep mix, Gunther, a 2 yr old great dane, and Nigel and Posey, two 1 yr old rat terriers.

Welcome to the board- I am so happy to hear about the rescued Pyrs. I have 3 Pyrs and a Maremma- ( which we thought was a Pyr at first) 3 Danes ( 2 pulled from a kill shelter) Bailey the 1/2 Newf 1/2 Golden and some littles. I could be labled the crazy dog lady and it would not have a negative effect on me at all. I have some other fosters as well. I am looking forward to your pics of your crew. One of my Pyrs was 7 when I rescued her last April and you could not ask for a more devoted and loyal companion.

Thank you all for your warm welcome.  Silly me, I should've come out of lurkdom sooner!   :) 

We're so glad to have these guys, they've added so much to our family.  Sam adores my DH (he telecommutes) and follows him around with a big dog smile.  Cass is such a natural snuggle bug that she made me think of how Julie's (Dahlie) dog Jackie is a reading therapy dog, so I suggested that our son read aloud to her. I told him that "it would be good for her".  ;) Now his reading has really improved and they look so cute snuggling while he reads to her.  Daisy was lonely as the only dog, and once we got past the initial growling, she's loved her new brother & sister.  It's been great!

Here's a pic of our three playing.  Sammy is on the left, Daisy in the middle and Cassie's on the right.
