Nice to meet you. Wow four Pyr ? I couldn't imagine having more than one. What I would like to know is how to take care of them. I have some knowledge from reading as much inf I can get my hands on but the real experiences come from owners like yourself. I'm so honered to meet you.
as you can read in Emmies profile, we were literally just handed over this wonderful dog. No payment, no questions asked. We were welcome to return Emmie if things didn't work out. Well,fat chance of that happening because We fell in love the second We met her. Her big Brown eye's were enough for me.
I have chickens and ducks and two Cockatoos so I was a little concerned that Emmie wouldn't take to them or try to eat them. We were amazed how the cockatoos weren't even phased by her and Emmie would just walk around their cages and wanted nothing to do with them. That was a good thing right ?
They get along great and I have let one of the Cockatoos out of her cage while Emmie was sleeping on the floor and our Cockatoo just walked around Emmie about 3 inches from her nose and just went on with her nap. I was so relieved that there was not a single bit of fear from either of them.
The same with the chickens, they aren't even the least bit concerned by Emmie. They have been out free ranging and while emmie was on a chain, the crazy birds would go right up to Emmie's food bowl and eat her dog food. Emmie would just continue lying there and not once got upset. She walks around the chicken coop at night and makes sure everything is ok...she is the gardian of those chickens and ducks...She keeps the racoons and opossoms and coyotes away.
OK, just alittle about Emmie. The questions I have are : My dog has been kept indoors and now that it's warming up outside, I have been letting her sleep outside but she has become destructive with anything around her. She shredded our Hammock...She is digging deep holes in the grass. There is nothing for her to do out there at night and I'm sure she is bored. I hear her bark alot and I'm sure it has to do with creatures out there. I know it's her job to ward off predators so I'm not too concerned about the barking but she cannot actually run after them. Is this dangerous for her ? Can she harm herself by trying to run after them while on her cable ? The cable is on a extension that has a roller so she can go back and forth. It's about 75 feet long.
I hate leaving her out side at night but she drives me crazy by going to the door and wanting to go out. So I decided to start letting her sleep outside. It breakes my heart because I'm used to having her at the foot of my bed and I feel content having her there, safe.
The other thing I wanted to ask was, does your dog's drink alot of water ? Eat very little ? pee alot ?
I hope I didn't bore you too much. Can't wait to hear from you. Have a great day. Ray & Emmie
