Re: [PyrNet-L] Welcome!!
I really enjoyed reading your story. Only how sad it must have
been to lose a Pyr friend!!!!
There are 2 pictures of Maggie at http://www.pyrbred.org/rescue.html
Then to "Rescue" Then down to "stories" .There you will see my BIG
girl. 291/2" tall!!!! The Pyr girls I had seen prior to getting
Maggie...or of her getting us!!!......were much smaller and I was flabberghasted
when "we" first met. hehehehe Now that I am used to her size I think
I prefer the larger girls. Except maybe the grooming
part!!!!!! Wouldn't trade her for the
world!! Joy McCarron (Maggie's Mom)

Thankyou Joy( Maggie's Mom) for your welcome
to us, much appreciated.
Would love to see a photo
of Maggie please? Looking forward to meeting other Pyrs and owners
too. Can I just say that no matter the dog we own, or take to a show
still comes home or lives with us as the Best Dog on the day or forever. No
matter anyone's interpretation of the Breed Standard in what ever country, we
are here as Guardians of this Breed and to do our best to maintain this Breed
for as long as we are able to ,be it as a Breeder or Owner. The best Pyr
I ever owned came back here at 12months old, was neutered and died 7 years
later on my birthday right in front of me!! He sure made a statement
which to us meant " I was a Runt, you should not have let me go, I made very
sure I came back and I taught you such a lot in those 7 years" He sure
did and what a thrill we all had as a Family when he went to Pyr Ribbon
Parades and Match Days and would win Best of Match and Best on Parade!!
His tolerance of other Pyr males extended beyond anything I have ever known
and today (5yrs later) I have 4 males here (2 imports) who have never growled
at each other and can co-exist on the same property. Harley taught me how to
react around males together and for that I willl be forever grateful having
left the backdoor open tonight to find the 4 yr old and the nearly 10 yr old
males out there together guarding the fenceline in their own separate
ways!! Cool, calm and reasonably collected "Seymor, get your butt in
here(and he did), Arthur what the hell are you doing out there, inside
NOW!!" So that should teach me to keep my messages to the Pyrnet just a
tad shorter and keep my eyes on the Boys!!
