Pretty me!

Pretty me!

Aimée la jolie !!!!

Our beautiful Aimée la jolie has found her forever home. Our heartfelt thanks to her new family. This was her story...

Here I am! Pretty, pretty me! Aimée la jolie!
I’m one year old. I’m clean in the house, although I like to play in mud puddles when I can find one. I just don’t like walking on a leash, but I’m starting to do it better with a little practice. That’s it! I want a home with a human, some humans, some children to run with. Marianne says I’ll settle down when I become an adult and then I’ll be able to take care of the humans. Until then, I want to play, to learn and just get cuddled and petted. That’s all there is to know. Where are you?

Well, she’s right. That’s it in a nutshell. Here is whatever else you may want to know of how she came to us.

Aimée and her brother Zukhy arrived for adoption because one of the children in the family was severely asthmatic. Over the last month or two, they spent their days in the yard and slept in a room excluded from ordinary house activity. They were born on a farm in June 2012. Vaccines are good until December 2013. Zukhy was adopted the day he arrived here and went to his forever home after his vet check.

She seems to have been well treated overall. As a 12 month old, she is in the adolescent stage and has the appropriate Pyr behaviour for her age. She loves to run, jump, bow and curtsy to invite your participation in her play. She also likes to be petted and get attention. Then off she goes for another run. However, she has had little formal obedience training but she knows and responds to sit, down and stay (although ‘stay’ is a very relative term when applied to a Pyr.) Leash training needs some work although she is improving. Her enthusiasm is boundless.

Since Aimée was very confused at leaving her family, my resident Pyrs have been reassuring her that life is good with someone else as well. She did spend a day or two just barking to protest the changes in her life. Now that she feels part of the gang, she no longer barks other than when the barn cat dares to go hunting. How dare she leave the barn! She should stay in her place!
With the barking resolved, unless a bird overflies her yard, she periodically comes into the house to visit relearn how to behave.

Aimée is now hoping for a home with a youngster or two with whom to run and play her repertoire of games although she’d be happy to take care of an adult or two if she likes them and get lots of petting and cuddling! I think she has the makings of a good service or reading Pyr.



En français….

Me voici! Aimée, la jolie!
J’ai 12 mois ce juin et je suis propre dans la maison. Par contre, s’il y a un trou d,eau ou de boue, c’est mon grand plaisir d’y patauger. La seule chose que je n’aime pas, c’est de marcher sur laisse, mais Marianne me montre qu’une randonnée avec elle peut être très plaisante. Elle me donne des câlins quand je fais quelque chose de bien et ça, c’est le fun mais il n’en y a jamais assez. C’est tout!

Je veux une maison avec un ou des humains et quelques enfants pour pouvoir courir ensemble et jouer. On me dit que je m’assagirai quand dans une autre année et je serai en mesure de prendre soin de mes humains. Jusque là, je veux jouer, apprendre et recevoir beaucoup de câlins et de bisous. C’est tout à savoir de moi. Ou êtes-vous?

Bien oui, c’est à peu près ça. Voici ce que vous voudriez peut-être vouloir savoir de comment elle est venue chez nous.

Aimée et son frère nous ont été cédés pour adoption parce qu’un des enfants de la famille souffrait de l’asthme. Ils sont nés en juin 2012 donc elle a un an. Ils ont vaccinés en décembre 2012. Son frère Zuhky a été adopté tout de suite en arrivant ici.

Les deux vivaient dans la maison sauf les derniers mois quand l’asthme s’est empiré et ils ont du passer leurs journées dehors et dormir à part des jeunes..
Elle semble avoir été bien traitée. Elle a un tempérament approprié à une Pyrénéenne de son âge. Évidemment, elle est en plein ‘adolescence’ et elle aime beaucoup jouer, courir, et elle invite au jeu en faisant la révérence.
Elle jappe pour avoir de l’attention de ses humains. (et pour avertir d’un oiseau qui traverse l’espace aérien de ‘sa’ cours!  )… alors une vraie petite Pyrénéenne.

Elle connait ‘assis’ et ‘en bas’. Elle a besoin d’e petits sessions exercice des commandes qu’elle connaît et à mieux marcher en laisse. Elle démontre les caractéristiques physiques et comportementales d’une Pyrénéenne de son âge.
