#796 Walking the boys.

Today I managed to take both of our great pyrenees boys for a walk. At the same time. It was largely successful, with moderate to severe tangling and reckless walking by both parties. But they walked continuously instead of stopping and sniffing every single thing, so I am calling it a success. And lots of people stop to ask about them when they see you walking 2 polar bears down the sidewalk. Having 2 instead of 1 is a big change, but I think they’re getting used to it.

  1. Is baker the one looking at the camera? They're both so pretty!

    We like taking Samson and Abby to the square on Friday and Saturday nights. They always get soooo much attention! lol It's a really good and easy way for them to be socialized though. Would be nice if we had a decent dog park around here so we could socialize them more often with dogs, too.

    Oh well. So glad y'all are enjoying the new pup! They always say you can't have just one pyr. lol

  2. Yep! That's ole Baker looking at the camera. We took our second walk today and it was pretty successful too. People constantly stop and ask about them—no one has them around here so it's pretty shocking when you see them!

    I'll keep you posted on how things are going. So far, they seem to like each other and haven't been aggressive towards each other. Hopefully it'll stay that way!

  3. As a guardian breed, I think they do pretty well in multiples; they watch each others' backs in case a predator shows up. Males tend to guard territory while females tend to guard the "family" (be that livestock or people lol). Abby and Samson will often stand back to back in our yard just looking around. No doubt you'll catch Baker and Chevy doing the same thing in no time. 🙂

  4. We can DEFINITELY tell that Chevy who is normally slow to bark and is kind of shy is emboldened by Baker. We've been sneaking up to the yard in the dark from the side we never enter to see how they react and they both went in super guard dog mode, barking ferociously and charging beside each other toward us… Chevy NEVER would have done that alone. I think it's pretty great so far!

  5. Beautiful pyrs!

    You don't know me, so I hope this doesn't sound to creeperish, but my best friend follows you and when I got my pyr 2 weeks ago she said, "I think Erin just got two of those"…so I had to check out your blog for myself. They are adorable!

    We rescued ours almost 2 weeks ago. She (Cora – named after Lady Grantham of Downton Abbey) is about a year old, and we are absolutely in LOVE with this big baby.

    I enjoyed visiting your blog, and I'll definitely be back to see how you're doing (praying all turns out ok on your stomach situation).

    I've been failing miserably at keeping up my blog (haven't posted since early December), but I plan to get back on at least a weekly basis soon…hopefully then you can check out my big girl.

  6. Amy! It's so good to "meet" you. 🙂 You absolutely have to bring Cora by our house sometime to meet the boys. And I'll be checking your page looking for pictures! Lauren in the comments above is my go-to pyrenees guru, so if you ever have questions I'd be happy to pass them along to her. I have no idea what I'm doing with 2 dogs exactly, but we're figuring it out as we go!
