we used to have a Blue Roan Cocker, had major skin probs and was on Cortisone from young age. She died years ago, I think around 1997/98. must get a wee photo up.

Someday I'd like to get another one, but the one drawback to huge dogs is they tend not to live very long. When Bailey got older he aged really fast and I just couldn't face another huge dog with a short lifespan at the time, so when one of our neighbors had a litter of Heelers we got one of those (I'd long wanted a Heeler too, so it worked out very well). We brought Zeke (the Heeler) home the day after we put Bailey down (we didn't want him to have to deal with an irritating puppy in his final days).
Pyreneans are a beautiful breed, and I think I know of at least one breeder not too far from where I live. Thanks for the info, how long did Bailey live?

San Punk have you ever seen a Leonberger? *drools*





They look kinda gnarly in pictures but are so regal and handsome in person

He was just under nine when he died. That seems to be fairly typical, although I did know one person who had one live to 12-12 1/2. That dog however, was on the small side for a Pyr, while Bailey, although not as large as some Pyrs I've seen, still topped out at 130 lbs/59 kgs.

Bailey was just the sweetest dog too. He was great with the cats (was baddies with several of them) and absolutely adored my mum. My mum wasn't in the best of health and sometimes when she'd walk him she'd be a bit wobbly. He would walk really slowly and would stay right next to her so she could lean on him. He was absolutely devoted to her.

Not in person, but what a beautiful dog! I don't know if I could find one around here, though.

As said though, I've had my heart set on a Newf for a few years now, but all dogs are good.

I just discovered this thread, and I love dogs! I want another dog. I've had 2 Australian Shepherds: Rusty and Max. Rusty was what we called our "mutant shepherd"...95 lbs! He was a sweetheart, only lived 8 yrs. Now we have Max, who was supposed to be a mini aussie, started out that way but now he is about 50 lbs. About average for the breed. His nick name is "devil dog". He's very challenging!!!

My hubby wants a Wesh Terrier, had one as a kid. Aren't almost all terriers pretty hyper?

I don't have a ton of experience with terriers, but they definitely can be high-energy. The key is a lot of exercise and mental stimulation

It's not so much that they are hyper, but terriers have this bullheaded, fight-to-the-death temperament. Most are bred to be very resilient dogs to work in some of the most awful conditions. So they can be quite hyper, stubborn, sometimes dog aggressive, and very prey drivey. Many people get them b/c they are little thinking they are suited to be a companion like a toy dog and often get way in over their head! I work with German Shepherds and other large working dogs and I will not add a terrier to my pack!

From last night. I love this lens. The camera I'm borrowing came with two and this one is my fave. The photos are always very sharp and I love the DOF. Sometimes the light and color is off but that's my fault.
