Hello again, my adoring fans! I am back with RAGOM; I was not able to control myself and was just too much dog for my adoptive family, particularly when we went for walks in the woods with all those critters.
Foster Dad took me back in and continues to work with me on my walking, but he says I am very stubborn and like to pull way too much even when using the Gentle Leader.
I really do like our walks and get excited when I see Foster Dad getting ready to take us out! Foster Dad says I have a pretty good “tell” when I’m getting ready to charge at something, as I tend to prance around.
I will only do #2 in the backyard and not on our walks. And I don’t like to be watched when I am going potty, one reason Foster Dad thinks I need a fenced yard.
When we are at home I do like to snuggle and I know Foster Dad really likes it when I do, but sometimes he will wheeze a bit when I lay on top of him (I’m currently 93 pounds).
I get along great with my brothers. Foster Dad says I watch for cues from them and will react to what makes them excited, too, so Foster Dad says if you have a reactive dog, I will not be a good fit. When my brothers and I get to rough-housing Foster Dad is afraid we are going to knock stuff off the wall, but we do have fun!
I will need to be allowed on your furniture and to sleep with you. I do occasionally whimper in my sleep and Foster Dad is not sure if I’m having a bad dream or dreaming of chasing squirrels, but he knows to gently say my name to wake me up and not touch me until I am awake. Then he holds me and we both go back to sleep peacefully.
We were recently in for a vet visit and the doctor says I look good (of course). When Foster Dad put me on the scale it at first showed 76 pounds. I was really holding my breath but he knew that wasn’t right, so we tried again and found out I was 93 pounds, which is normal for me.
Remember, I am half Great Pyrenees. I was really hoping he would buy the 76 pounds and feed me to get me "up" to the 90's. Oh well… So, if you’re looking for “large love,” I may be your boy—let the fine folks at RAGOM know!
