Well, after considering it for a long time we finally got ourselves a Great Pyrenees puppy. I'll add pics soon. I just got a different laptop and need to install my camera software. Anyway, we named him Oscar. He's a handful but very smart and very loving. He's also extremely easy going and mellow, but still acts like a pup. He has fun bouncing around the yard and loves dragging toys all over the house. Anyone else have one of these dogs? Any stories or tips you'd like to pass along? On a side note we're also thrilled to have our cat back after looking for him for almost a week. We thought he was around because he'd been sighted by a neighbor down the road. We spent a lot of time wandering the woods, and the neighbor's yard looking for the little guy. When I walked out on the porch this evening he came trotting up the steps. We think he took off because he was spooked or chased by coyotes. Hopefully our great pyr will deter the coyotes from visiting, once he grows up anyway. Here are some pics, hopefully I rememberd how to add them. It's been a while.
