I'd just like to tell a little tail (tale) about my Avatar. Late last May we had to have our 9 y.o. Yellow Lab put down because of Cancer.He was my pal and constant companion, always at my side.

Actually, I asked my Doctor to talk to my wife about a dog, which to my surprise she did. By September my Doctor and I were able to convince my wife that I should have another dog so as to have a good reason to walk and exercise.

We did not want a new puppy for several reasons, the training would be hard for us.
Finally I found a "Rescued dog" named " Maybelline "that was in the OSPCA just 45 minutes away. We decided to drive down to see her. Love at first sight!

At that time she was 10 months old and 84 pounds. She is now 13 1/2 months old and weighs in at 93 pounds and named "Misty." She is very loving and most protective to us.

If you're interested, click on the link "Great Pyrenees", and see for yourself what a great breed we have rescued and so happy to have done so.

Thanks for reading my tail!

I'm looking far a dog also. I think one in the Spaniel family.
I like the English Springer; but, they are very high energy.

Glad you found a dog; and that it was a rescue.

Dogs get the same illnesses! As a matter of fact, I spent more on my dogs at the vets and animal hospitals than I did with my kids doctor visits.

On the plus side, dogs don't talk back, and they are happy to see you, even when you screw up. Eat-popcorn

Great Pyrenees is a good family dog. They tend to bond with one member of the household but friendly to all.

This is my Great Pyrenees / Australian Shep mix

[Image: bailey.jpg]

He's deaf and can only see out of his right eye. Smartest dog I have had. We taught him sign language. It's funny when we sign him to do something that he doesn't care to do he'll pretend he didn't see us by looking away but he keeps looking back to see if we sign something better.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

It's the Australian Shepard part that makes your dog smart.
My step-daughter has an Australian Shepard mixed with a black Lab.

Alan, your dog must require a lot of grooming.

RE: My Avatar
very nice looking dogs.

I had to google 'Australian Shepherd' as i've never heard of them and am Australian! Turns out they are an American bred dog.

and if you believe everything wikipedia tells you, then...

It is not clear where the name "Australian" came from, although a theory suggests that they were named for those imported sheep that they herded. It is also possible that many of the dogs coming from Australia were blue merle and the adjective "Australian" became associated with any dogs of that coat color.[8] The Australian Shepherd was initially called by many names, including Spanish Shepherd, Pastor Dog, Bob-Tail, New Mexican Shepherd, California Shepherd, and Austrian Shepherd

Sorry I was so long getting back to you.

Yes they are very intelligent dogs but VERY stubborn.
When they love you and bond with you, you certainly know it. I'm sure she is stuck to my back pocket all the time.
Can't help but love them!!!!
