    Hello,    Thanks Karen, this is fascinating!    But, still and all
what's with the subtraction of the "great height" and "great height"?
    If, pyrs are to remain the "gentle giant" and a *giant* breed of
dog, then what's the point of trying to *downside the term* we use for
    I am almost lost. <g>.( Not a hard place for me to find to go, btw.)

    Please someone refresh my memory of how, why and if the GPC of A has
changed the very important written word description?
    Yours in pyr spirit,
    Judith, Jonah & Lexi
