On Saturday after the sad and very hard morning of saying goodbye to our Psalty, in the afternoon hubby called a couple of possibilities on Great Pyrenees pups.
I knew how "dangerous" it would be to go see a puppy and after giving it consideration decided we'd go ahead and check one out. I had been really missing the affection of our Pyr, Belle. Psalty had grown to the point where she really didn't enjoy being touched very much, and if she was sleeping soundly we wouldn't want to wake her. She didn't really like being hugged herself, so Belle gave us all that affection. With the prospect of not having the love of a cold nosed friend and not liking the idea, we headed out to the farm where the breeder gave us directions to. When we pulled into the driveway my first thought was, "I would feel bad taking a Pyrenees from this to our house." This land was beautiful as the owner owns a landscape company we learned. Well we went back and were introduced to the two Pyrs that were left. One had more color in him than we wanted, I said hi to him and scratched his nose through the fence, then walked on down to the other. He was kind of shy at the fence and Harry, the breeder said 'you can go on in the kennel' and he opened it for us. The pup was beyond holding size, so we got to know each other. We romped, I pulled and tugged, and hugged.(ahhh felt great!)...said hi to his momma in the kennel next to him. And after talking and a half hour later I said, "you know, I think he's a keeper." So we now have 13 week old "Sabastian". Hubby named him. As Belle was named after the cartoon "Belle and Sabastian" it's obvious where we got Sabastian's name. He is warming our hearts, has helped our grieving losing both dogs this year..and learning fast the domestic life. Before we got him he had never been inside a building....except for the vets. He's very loving and cute as can be! Kris Belle and Psalty's mom and now Sabastian's too

Well Major Congratulations to all 3 of you!
The only cure for death that I've found is Life!
Take delight in the living.
Be grateful for the time you have them, it's never long enough. I know a lot of people may disagree, grieving is a process . . but I feel like one needs to "get back up on the horse" so-to-speak, asap. These creatures are a gift !
