Questions
by: Donna

These are all very common question and good answers!

They do have their big coats that also insulate them from the heat. Also, digging their deep dirt pits helps immensely. A/C beats all!

The White Newf Question
by: Frank

Whenever I took my Pyr, Gus out in public, one of the questions I was asked regularly was, "Is this a white Newf?"

I always enjoyed that question. You see, I was born and raised on the island of Newfoundland, where the big, black Newfoundland dogs originated.

So, whenever I was asked that question, I would respond, with a twinkle in my eye, "No, he's not... but I am!". It always got a chuckle. And of course this always led me into a story about what Great Pyrs are all about.

I miss my Gus. He is the dog you see to the right in the picture that says, "You cannot save the world, but for the one you save, you are the world."

And for that quote, I thank Maryanne Pierce, one of our dedicated rescuers.
