Pyr Pup!!

Pyr Pup!!

Okay I have already shared a couple of stories of Aslan (his mom was lab and daddy a Great Pyr). Anyhow, we live in Vavenby and met a guy who also had a female Pyr. My husband Pete and this guy became good friends and would jam together. Quite often he would bring his Pyr over with him when they would jam. One day Pete was headed to the store when he drove by a neighbors house and noticed a huge Pyr tied up on the front porch and decided to go talk to the owners. Turns out the Pyr on the porch was his buddy's dog. He had split with his girlfriend and took off to the island and left his dog behind. The owner was looking for a new home for Misty as she was too much for her and we found out that was her 3rd home in just over a month. Pete came home immediately and told me what he had found out. He was devastated that this dog was spending her days tied up on short run and had already had 3 homes. I could tell he wanted her badly and against my better judgement I told him to go get her. 5 minutes later we had Misty to add to our collection of dogs. We have 2 rescue Papillons as well. No we do not have a large house at all but we make it work with 2 great Pyr, 2 Papillons, a parrot and a 4 year old boy.

We both had thought Pete's friend had said once that Misty was fixed, oh yeah you guessed it, NO SHE WASN'T!!! On August 24, 2013 Misty and Aslan had a litter of 6 puppies(2 females and 4 males). Oh lord has this been an adventure and an experience. Try to picture 840sq feet with 2 Large Great Pyr's, 2 Papillons, 6 puppies, a Parrot, and a 4 year old hyperactive son. I am shocked I am not wearing a straight jacket. lol. I have to admit though as much as it was stressful it was an experience. My 4 year old son delivered Misty's first puppy. So proud and he was totally amazed by the whole process. The pups are 6 weeks old, 4 have found homes, 1 we are giving to a 7 year old girl in Logan Lake (she has had major medical problems since birth and probably always will). She moved me and her folks want a dog that will protect her on their acreage. I am so lucky to have been given this opportunity but I am so glad it is almost over. I am exhausted.

Update on Pyr Pups!
by: Rhonna Booth

I am sad to say the parents of the little girl with medical issues emailed me tonight and took a big financial hit and will not be able to care for a large dog at this time. I'm hoping I can work some magic somehow so she will still be able to get this puppy to keep her safe on her property!

If anyone is interested check out "Support For Izzy" on Facebook! She has overcome many odds but will face many more! Daddy works hard and Mommy is fighting her own medical issues while tending to Izzy and 2 teenage boys!

I'm going to hold on to one pup as long as I can in hopes something will happen that we may be able to give Izzy this wonderful lil boy!
