The last picture Superman

Before I introduce our new family I want to thank everyone involvoled with this site for champion a wonderful breed and being do active in supporting local rescues. I can't think of a greater group of people to share my Pyrenees life with.

My very small contribution is that I have been able to get 3 beautiful Pyrenees through rescue and my love Beau has caused my best Friend to adopt 2 of his own.

Also I would say thank you to all the wonderful readers who have sent kind words in the past you may not even know how much they mean in hard times. Thank you all.

Now the picture you requested. Above is our new fur family and the wonderful women who made it possible for me to move forward. The big picture is Maximoose after a few baths my wife and I realized we needed help so we took him in and after whiting shampoo and a brush out and much needed trim and dematting here is the wonderful new six year old Maximoose.

As of now he fits like a glove. He is a bit smaller than Beau but I still think Beau sent him to me. Top right is of course my beautiful Buttercup now 13 she was a 6 year old coming into our house our second Pyrenees adoption. Bottom right is Nava at 5 months old she will be trained both as a service dog and in water rescue as I try to pay it forward for the wonderful things Beau had given me through his life. The second picture is my beautiful and wise wife. She is 70 years old and still is a vibrant and beautiful as the day we met ( I swear 70 and that is why if I wasn't sure there was a god she proves it).

Thank you honey for sending me on a trip that put my family back together. So when my time comes I will meet Beau on the other side of the rainbow bridge and wait for the rest of you.

Thank you Beau I can hardly wait to hold you again but til then you sent me the right babies to keep is company in eternity.

A word to Donna
by: Ed A from NJ

Donna thank you for comment, since I read everything on these pages I read all your answers and I think we are very like minded in our thought and believes about raising and caring for our dogs. So you must be a very caring person deadacated to this wonderful breed. I notice you don't post just respond?

Why Donna Responds
by: Frank

Ed, I don't know if you are aware, but Donna is one of a number of dedicated folks we have in the club who work on the front lines of Rescue.

There are a number of them, all of whom who are dedicated to ensuring the best possible lives for Great Pyrs.

Of course that work comes from educating people about the breed and stepping in wherever and whenever possible to rescue, rehabilitate and re home Pyrs in need.

Our club is very fortunate to not only have folks like Donna, but to have folks like you too. You see, by sharing with us as you do and contributing as you do, you remind us that what we do in rescue really makes a difference.

And your ability to share your everyday experiences with your Pyrs, both happy and sad, brings great value by showing others the reality of life with a Pyr.

As you know they are not the right dog for everyone. We want people to know that because... At the end of the day it's all about what's best for the Pyrs.

So thank you Ed, for being a part pf our (virtual) team.
