Garrett's Graduation Picture

Garrett's Graduation Picture

It is February and Garrett has been with us in his forever home for six months now. In that time he has accomplished so much with his new family and helped us overcome the loss of our first Pyr Jessie who at age 9 passed away due to cancer.

Garrett is a big strong proud fella and everywhere we take him he gets so much attention from people wanting to meet and pet him. We are sure Garrett feels that all people were put on this earth to give him attention, we call him our Walmart greeter!

Garrett loves his long walks, early morning and early evening, not to mention running around and wrestling in the snow.

Just recently Garrett finished top of his dog training class, and his favourite trick is rolling over. He is an extremely intelligent boy but like all Pyrs, likes to learn at his own pace.

More updates to follow!

We are the lucky ones
by: Jennifer

I would have to say that my family and I are the lucky ones to have Garrett in our lives, everyday is a snuggle fest with our handsome man. As far as the hat and glasses goes...he is such a HAM and loves to dress up. It's very comical to see a dog this size dressed up for Halloween as Count Garrett. (he was wearing a cape!)

Love the pictures
by: Martha

Garrett must be a very special PYR... I couldn't get mine to pose with a hat or glasses! Somehow I think I'd end up wearing both! LOL But the picture with Carter and Garrett sure looks like a familiar scene around here! Keep the updates coming... so heartwarming.

What a very fortunate dog to have a wonderful family like yours. :)
