Watched a good family movie last night 'Goodbye My Lady' with Walter Brennen and Brandon Dewild. It's about a boy and his rescued dog - a Basenji, made about 1956 - Black and White.

I looooove great pyrenees. I have one named duddley. He is the clumsiest dog in the world, but the sweetest. One thing about great pyrenees is that they sit on you :), they bark all the time and they never listen to you.

    Obviously you are the wrong owner for a large dog like that. How do you go out and get a dog and not teach and train him?
  • Charlie Roche - 2011-04-18
    I love them also. I They eventually grow out of the clumsy stage but mine would fall down and over frequently. They love to be close but they are sure clumsy. Maybe because they grow so fast. Mine never barked a lot. Would there be a reson yours is barking that you can think of? Something in the yard or needs to go out - anything? Mine listened but I also trained them using little pieces of hot dog th basics COME SIT STAY HEEL once they had me trained, we didn't have any problems. Good luck. They are so soft.

    My dog is a 9-month-old GP/Walker coonhound mix. He exhibits mostly GP characteristics. He is bright, calm, and has been easy to train. I must say, he is the clumsiest canine I have ever seen, especially for the first several months, as he would frequently fall down. He is very, very soft and eminently huggable. I have learned that if he barks, I had better go check it out.

    I have found the Great Pyrenees to be gentle, intelligent, obedient, loyal, and all clumsiness gone by four months old. He had six basic commands by nine weeks old. I have had mine since 8 weeks old; he is now three years old, a mere 150 pounds, and owns the security of the sheep flock and the ranch. Barking is nocturnal, when predators are near. No losses here or at any neighbors since he has been here. He is always working unless ordered otherwise. My coming and going is not his problem. Watching him work, day or night - he is Awesome. I believe God shares him with me. Best training is for a Pyr is found in Livestock

    I have a GP hound mix and love him to death. He is a gentle giant and has most of the GP in him cuz he loves to sleep and is a couch dog for sure. I go to work eveyday and he guards the house while I'm gone for 9hrs... then when I come home I take him for a walk and he's happy. At midnight after sleeping for a while he will get up and gaurd the house till morning than he goes to sleep when I wake up. The hound in him is crazy for food so he eats very fast so I'm always in the room to watch him so he won't eat so fast he gets sick... but really he is the best dog I have ever had in my life and I've owned a lot of dogs. I also own a border collie/shepherd mix and he's a male as well and they get along very well for 2 males. They look at each other like brothers and when one is not in sight the other dog is looking for him. I love them both very much and whoever said 2 males can't get along is false cuz they do great together. I was very strong minded with both when I got another male. I worked very hard to make them both understand im the pack leader and fighting is not allowed and today the hard work paid off cuz they love eachother.

I got my little boy Charlie about 2 years ago and don't know really how old he is I'm thinking maybe 4. This little dog is so smart and loveable I have never had a dog love me so much we are always together and he has to give me hugs and kissess all the time and I do the same to him. He hates the cold and will not stay outside and we also have a 5 year old Lab/Newfie mix and she loves to stay outside so its kinda hard but she don't mind and they get along wonderful. The only problem I have with my chug is he always pees in my house he won't poo in the house I once read that a chug will pee in the house and mark everywhere so he can show you how loyal he is and would even die for you I don't know how true it is? If someone can help me with a way to train my chug to stop peeing in my house and he is very smart so I know he knows what he is doing he is just so stubbrn.

    Chugs can be house broken just like any other pup.  As to why he is doing it in the home - I really couldn't tell you.  Is he neutered?  When you say  marking his territory - if he is neutered that usually helps immensely and puts a stop to it.  Just not housebroken?  Easy to do but take a ring of keys (ones you don't use) and keep them with you.  If the Chug looks like it is going to go potty in the home or starts to go potty in the home, throw the keys down at the ground and say 'NO'.  Keys make a big noise - do not hit the pup with the keys but close to him is OK.  Big noise usually scares them and stops the peeing and then you take him out.  You can try it.  Some have put keys in a soda can but that is large - the keys just can be in your pocket.

    From Animal World "Labradoodles are usually friendly toward children, strangers, and other dogs. As with most dogs, proper socialization while young is important".
    Both the Labrador and the Poodle (the ancestors of this pup) are friendly, non agressive pups. They love their families and get along with people, other animals - so other pups and everyone in the family. Like anything else - any new pet - you would bring into the home, just go slow and introduce all on neutral territory. Remember, the existing pets could be jealous so they need a little extra attention from you. The new fella doesn't know yet. So just let all get aquainted slowly and make sure you give extra attention to those already there. OK enjoy

I bought a rottweiler puppy recently and it's fully black. My friends told me it's not pure because rottweiler should have two colors. Can someone help me with it? Also can you list some features to identify a pure puppy.

    Yes generally as far as I know you can't get a fully black rottweiler. Did your rottweiler come with papers? That is the only true way to know for sure if your puppy is a mix or not.

What is the best way to giv our little one some Trifexis? I mean that stuff STINKS and these dogs have a smeller that will detect this 'stinky stuff.' We tried a little allpesauce, put some in his treat, and we resorted to actually.... I held him while my wife put some in some yogurt and forced it down/made him swollow it. I felt bad doing it but you would think they could make this stuff so a dog could take it. Any thoughts for next time?

    DAG this stuff stinks the house. WHOA!!
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-11-21
    Heh... sounds like you guys had some fun:_  I've used hot dogs to bury the medication in for dogs, and that usually works because they will just gulp it down (no chewing for them!). Also, a technique I use when medicating dogs and cats... I open their mouth by gently inserting my finger on the far side of the mouth, just past the molars. Then I put the pill as far back in their throat as I can, where all they can really do is swallow. It's fast, effective, and over before they even know it happened! Then I give them lots of love and praise.
  • Jim - 2012-11-25
    :) #1 worse put the stuff in his mouth so he swollows it. #2 worse part.....Trifexis STUNK THE HOUSE UP. This stuff stinks and our dog can smell it(no matter what we tried).
  • Toni - 2012-12-03
    A miracle has happened! We can get heartworm medication injected for a six month period of time and it is no more expensive than six months of Trifexis. I just got my dog, Bonnie, an injection and am so glad I no longer have to wrestle with her to get that stupid pill, which she hated, down her little throat.
  • Joon - 2012-12-07
    I usually break the Trifexis in half since the pill is kind of big for them to swallow, then coat it with cream cheese monthly for both of my dogs, long hair chi & miniature poodle. It works like a charm every time.
  • Charlie Roche - 2012-12-07
    I break it up a litle and then put it in a fairly good size piece of cheeses or a ball of cheeses whiz or piece of hot dog.
  • Jim - 2012-12-10
    We tried breaking it up and rolling it in cheese. It worked for one piece then he smelled the second piece of cheese and walked away. That's when my wife put it in some yogurt and (kinda) put it in his mouth. Got some on his coat by his ear and she washed him but didn't get it all. I took a pair of scissors and had to cut the piece off. Getting onto a different topic it seems our dog has a smooth coat but when it comes to the ear area it 'looks' kinda matted(it's not just looks that way). Seems the area 'feels' kinda damp and wondered if it had to do with his ear.
  • Nancy - 2012-12-13
    I break the Trifexis into several pieces and then put them into pieces of a Pill Pocket. My dog loves the Pill Pockets! Good luck!
  • Gerri - 2013-01-07
    Coat the pill with smooth peanut butter and your chi should gulp it down like mine does.
  • Jim - 2013-01-22
    'Should gulp it up?' You don't know our guy. He likes the peanut butter then when he smells the Trifexis he walks away. I feel bad forcing it down his throat but I tell him 'it's for your own good.'
  • Anonymous - 2013-01-27
    Try fat free American cheese. I have an 11 year old longhaired chi with an emlarged heart. He has to take several pills a day. We first tried just putting them down his throat - didn't work. Then we tried the pill pocket routine - worked for a few times and that was the end of that. He loves American cheese. We now wrap his pills (sometimes I have to cut them up if they are kind of big) in pieces of cheese. No problem, right down the gullett - I guess he thinks they are treats. You might try that avenue.
  • Jim - 2013-04-04
    NOTHING works for this guy. UNFORTUNATELY we have to resort to forcing down his mouth. Yeah just put some stuff that stinks the high heavens into some cheese and he won't know. YEA, RIGHT!!! After grinding it up in some yogurt, an hour afterwards he hacked that up. Have I stated that this junk stinks?
