"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....

I’ll have lots of adorable pictures and all her details tomorrow! (I’m sorry!) I went to Virginia to get her and didn’t get back until late last night. Can anyone guess what breed she is?
On June 19, 2008 at 7:05 am
Great Pyrenees :woof: and she is beautiful!!!

It looks like beautiful addition to the house. I can’t wait till you get the goats, oh the frolicking that will occur.
On June 19, 2008 at 7:56 am
She is really beautiful – a wonderful addition to your family. You will be constantly amazed by her as she grows and matures. She will teach you a lot. Great choice! – Pyrs are a joy. Is she from the same breeder as your neighbors Pyr?
On June 19, 2008 at 8:07 am
Adorable! Can’t wait for the details and more PICS. I’ll bet even evil chicken will be scared of him. It won’t realize he only wants to play. It’ll have to get a bigger gun. ha ha

That is a gorgeous Pyrs!
On June 19, 2008 at 9:11 am
Oh, Princess! She is beautiful! You know, I loved the picture of you with the goat’s GP, and here you are with one of your own. :snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy: :snoopy:
Congratulations on the arrival of a new family member!
On June 19, 2008 at 9:15 am
Oh, boy, what a precious photo!!! They both look a DORABLE!

Oh my goodness, she is adorable. The puppy is too! I can’t wait til you’ve caught up on your sleep and can tell us all about her. of course everyone before me has claomed Great Pyrenees, which would only make sense, because you drooled over your neighbors GP. Congrats! I’m jealous!
On June 19, 2008 at 9:37 am
I want!! I’ve always lusted for a Pyr… enjoy your new baby. 🙂

Can’t wait to hear more about her. I’m not familiar with this breed. How big will she get?
Looking forward to the pictures.

On June 19, 2008 at 10:07 am
Oh, so cute!! I love great pyrenese (sp?) We used to have one and he was the greatest dog with the farm animals. We had a baby rabbit fall out of it’s cage and the dog sat with the rabbit-nose to nose-until we got into the barn. I’m sold on em!!!

She is a beautiful Great Pyreneese. The grow to be quite large, 85-100 lbs. Great guard dogs also. She deserves a royal name. She and Princess look good together. :love: Have a great day and :hug: to all.
On June 19, 2008 at 10:20 am
I knew right away that she’s the same breed as the “goat herding” dog that you saw. I guess you & Princess had dog envy and had to get one of your own. I was wondering how you afford all the vet bills (even just to vacinate) all your cats & dogs.
On June 19, 2008 at 10:24 am
I think she is a Great Pyrenees too. Both my sister and my husband’s brother had them to guard their farms. Great dogs to guard your future Nigerian goat herd. And she will probably keep predators away from that scary mini chicken. Wouldn’t want anything to happen to him.
On June 19, 2008 at 10:32 am
That is a beautiful puppy! Princess cerainly looks entrhalled with her. What a cute picture! A girl and her dog–its a beautiful thing.
On June 19, 2008 at 10:34 am
What a happy and beautiful twosome! :thumbsup:

You should name her Duchess, then you will have a Princess and a Duchess in your kingdom!

I’m guessing a Great Pyreneese (sp?). Oh…but won’t those chickens LOVE her?! :whip:
Our beloved 10yo Sheltie, Hickory, died in January & after having had 2 Shelties we thougth we’d go a different route this time & got a solid black (except a spot on her chin and chest) Miniature Schnauzer, Magpie Maggie Mae. She’s a live wire! Fortunately…now that she’s 6 months old…she’s FINALLY (FINALLY!!) getting the hang of potty training!!! :snoopy: :elephant: :shimmy: :fryingpan: Can’t WAIT to hear YOUR stories!!
Blessings from Ohio…
On June 19, 2008 at 11:04 am
Congratulations on the Great Pyrenees. She’s beautiful and I’ll bet very lovable. When you get sheep they will not be afraid of her because she looks like them. She’ll be a great protector of all your animals and people! I am looking at a Great Pyr mix rescue right now. Maybe this is encouragement for me to step out and adopt.

OMG, is that not THE CUTEST face you have EVER seen? Being a pup person, I am dieing…I want so badly to hold that pup and love on him and hug him…OHHH, and Princess looks so proud, with her pretty self! I just love that pup! I have NO idea what kind it is…a shepherd, Alaskan mix? LOL No idea..I just know I wish he were here for me to hug him! ADORABLE! Can’t wait to hear his name! He looks like “Buddy”. LOL :shimmy: :guitar: :clap: :clap: :elephant: :snoopy: Welcome home Buddy Bud!

She is beautiful but boy, can they galumph around. Watch the chickens and the garden. She could trample them both in short work.

Our uncle’s neighbor has a Great Pyrenees and it is the sweetest thing! Beautiful too! And big!!! Your other animals are going to be jumping for a while lol.
On June 19, 2008 at 2:16 pm
Awwww, so cute! And HUGE! What’s her name?
On June 19, 2008 at 2:35 pm
Your deer does look skinny..or maybe sick or injured..Does that look like a wound or growth on it’s neck ??Maybe it had been shot at some time or other ?? I hope it is ok. 😕
On June 19, 2008 at 2:40 pm
I was rushed earlier when I posted, so was not able to read the above posts…oh, I have never heard of this breed..or not much. Interesting. I can’t wait to hear more about him! (Buddy Bud! LOL)

On June 19, 2008 at 3:19 pm
Oh how adorable!!!!!!
I would take another puppy but I don’t think the 4 furbabies I have now would be too happy about it(and neither would hubby). Enjoy your puppy I sure do miss puppy breath.
On June 19, 2008 at 4:46 pm
I love that dog!!!!!
On June 19, 2008 at 5:29 pm
I thought great pyreneese were all white, but I’m more of a cat person…so I don’t know. Cute as can be though. From the size of those paws, that will be a big girl. Congrats on the new addition to your family.

What a pretty pup, you’ll soon have it spoiled. Princess is getting more lovely by the day…bet the boys are on your door-step more than you like :whip: .
On June 19, 2008 at 8:27 pm
Ooooohh. Great Pyrenees puppy breath! Lord those are wonderful dogs. Strong willed too. They are some of the most amazing dogs I’ve ever encountered. I was “judged” by one one time, and I’m grateful to this day I passed judgement.
On June 19, 2008 at 8:39 pm
It’s a really adorable Great Pyrenees! Great farm dog, but be warned! The puddles of drool are as hard to keep up with as the cat hair on the chairs! He/she is just beautiful though! Congrats on the newest addition!
On June 19, 2008 at 9:15 pm
We have five Pyrs, one Maltese, and five mutts, but no chickens, I feel so inadequate!!
