I mention my dogs a lot, both in my journal and in my posts to my lists. So, since so many people are curious, I decided to set them up their own webpage. (Yes, they are spoiled!)
Here's a shot of both kids with Lucy, our female Pyr. Lucy is the tallest of the 2 Pyrs. Also a shot of Bailey, the male Pyr:
All of our canine population came from Rescue Groups. Bailey was an owner release (he got too big, can you imagine?), Lucy...well, we were her last shot. She *has* to be the alpha. Her adopted family were also foster parents for the Pyr Group, and it just didn't work. We were a pretty good fit.
And then, there's the Zoey-monster (Irish Wolfhound, 100%).......:
And, just for reference, the kids with Zoey....she is approximately 15 months old here, Ian is 4 and Caitlyn is 7. Zoey is sitting down:
Here's one of her and Ian, taken August 19, 2004. They were being silly:
Zoey was also an owner release...seems she has an abnormally high play drive for a Wolfhound. My kids don't think so....
As of right now (Aug. 18, 2004), she has grown even more. Her head is a little bit taller than Ian's, and she can look *down* at the dining room table. Nothing is safe any more.....
Here's a shot of her as of Aug. 18 - you still don't get a feeling for her *size*...but at least this is a bit more current.
And, just to give you a feeling for her sheer mass, here are a few more. Yes, I *have* gotten camera happy in the last few days!
These 3 were taken Feb. 13, 2005. Ummm, the pictures speak for themselves, I think (Caitlyn took the 2 full view shots. She's becoming quite the photographer!):
