Great Scott Batman - it's snowing dogs!!! Hmm not a dog... The baby with brown on her is Ziti, one of the great goofballs is my McCarran growing up, the other three are Noel, the one with the great head and sad eyes, and the "kitchen Pyrs" Penne and Gnocchi. All are rescues, Mac is mine. The others were abandoned last month. The Kitchen pyrs were tied to a dumpster. Ziti was found stray and desperately ill. And Noel was minutes from death when I agreed, despite the other three, to take her in temporarily til transport and foster could be arranged. So many pyrs are coming into rescue now, that homes like mine are full to the brink and I get at least two calls a week or more, asking if I have room for one more. Twelve dogs is my limit. People have given up their "dreams" of a small hobby farm, sold the livestock and now the dogs that protected the livestock are also unwelcome. They're being abandoned at record speed in record numbers. If you've ever been interested in a Pyr, please contact your local rescue, or look at Nation Great Pyrenees Rescue, they list them for the entire nation. None of the five I have were raised in a home. All were outside, three I know were unhandled stock dogs. Each is now house broken, most are crate trained, all walk on leash, three of them ride well in a car, Mac tolerates car rides and Ziti barfs. She's young and ill and with conditioning will probably out grow it. Penne and Gnocchi have been active livestock guards and are good with small stock and poultry. Gnocchi likes the couch. Penne likes being groomed. Ziti wants to lay on her back on your lap and pretend she weighs six pounds not sixty. And the chicken I added because this is BYC - That's Algernon, my Delaware Roo.
