Best Tricks: HA! what tricks? He only does what he wants, when he wants to. But he can now jump off the bed, instead of fall off :D
Arrival Story: We wanted another big dog, or really I did, my husband was happy with 3. Reilly our Bernese Mnt dog has been such a wonderful dog we started to research other breeds in that group. We decided on the Great Pyr. I had to do about 4 days of searching to find one in our area and we still ended up driving over 3 hours each way to get him.
His dad is 6'2" when standing on his hind legs and weighs in at 180LBs. We were impressed with him. We drove out and took a look at 4 males and decided on Sampson. He was the most energetic of the bunch. He came from a working farm where his mom and dad protect goats and cattle. He smelled liked goats the entire ride home (stinky), lol.
My husband named him Sampson after the black Chow we lost in April and Superman was added after the little booger took a flying leap off the bed the day we got him.
Bio: Since the day he arrived at our house he has been a handful. He has an attitude and pushes right back when one of the other dogs gets in his face. Reilly was so big compared to him and would pretty much toss him around but Sampson is a tough cookie and always tried to stand up for himself. Now Reilly and Sampson are best friends and they are playmates now that Sampson is closer to Reilly's size.
Sampson is currently in obedience training. He is just starting out and working toward is pet therapy certificate. He is turning out to be an absolutely wonderful pet and companion.
Forums Motto: I'm not dumb, I'm too smart to bother.
Well, looks like she's going to go through with it. I have to get neutered. My date is Aug 12th, I think it is a monday. Mom is off the few days after to take care of me. I begged her not to do it, and dad begged her not to do it, but she wont listen. She says its better for me in the long run. Dad wants to breed me just once, but mom says no way. Dad says we get pick of the litter, mom says we have 4 dogs already.
So I guess I get neutered, cause moms word is law. LOL.
Wow, so long between entries. I am sorry but mom is so busy. She works nights now and is in school, so her time is limited. When she gets a few minutes she plays with us instead of writing here, lol. Anyway, I am almost one year old. I am taller and longer then Reilly but I weigh less. Mom and Dad took us to PetsMart the other day and put us on the scale. Reilly was 103, I was only 99. Mom calls me skinnyminny. She bought new food for all of us to try to add some calories, wow was that a mistake. It made all our tummys upset and we all pooped in the house for about a week. Mom brought the food back to the store. We are all better now, lol.
Wow, I am almost 10 months old and I am getting big big big. I am still pretty thin and my mommy is trying hard to get some meat on my bones. I just like to play so much that I burn all the fat off, lol.
Summer is here in NC and it is hot. I dont much like being outside anymore and I come when called. Mom isnt sure if it's just cuz its hot or if I am really listening better. :)
Me and Reilly have wrestling matches in the house now, lol. Mom and dad have to rearrange the furniture after we are done, but they dont mind, hehehe.
Mom and dad are both better. Dad's leg is healing and mom is better after her stay in the hospital for 4 days for asthma and an infection. Things are getting back to normal now.
Hope to be back more often again, I have missed you all!
