Thanks From FRANK and Martha

(Barrie)

I am overwhelmed at the responses to Frank's story. It confirms my belief that Great Pyr owners are as warm, wonderful and unique as their dogs. Thank you very much.

Frank is healed; she looks great and is not suffering any ill effects from her encounter. In fact, she seems to be a bit more "mature". And perhaps it is my imagination - but there seems to be a more grave warning in her bark when someone approaches our property. (Nah; she has probably always sounded like that; I just didn't take it all that seriously.)

Believe me, if you really take a look at your Pyr, under all that fluff and that sweet slobbery smile, you have one SERIOUS PROTECTOR!

Thanks for sharing
by: Frank Farrell

Thank you Martha for sharing Frank's story with us. Over 1300 visitors read the story last month, and as you know a number have commented right in this section of the website.

This has helped fulfill our objective of informing anyone who is interested about the breed that we love... the Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog.

Of course you have published many other stories about Frank as well, all of which have provided real insight into life with a Great Pyr.

So thank you again for taking the time to share Frank with us. We are all beneficiaries.

There is a difference...
by: Anonymous

There is a difference between a "pet" LGD and a PROVEN LGD, whether he/she is a pet or not and the difference comes from the increase in respect they receive from their people.

LGDs are dead serious about their job and your recognition of how good they are at it relieves stress in YOU which, in turn, relieves stress in THEM.

Essentially, your whole family let go of a whole lot of fear and got a huge shot of well-being from the experience. And Frank's job got a whole lot easier.

You did exactly right...
by: Anonymous

In my awe of Pyrs in general, and Frank in particular, I neglected to mention that the family did EXACTLY "the right thing". From pushing the girls away from the dock and out into the water to gathering - as Frank's flock - in a defendable area. This is a picture perfect example of everybody being on the exact same "supernatural" page.
