I am a female Pyrenean Mountain Dog (or Great Pyrenees). I weigh 120 pounds. I am 28 inches tall at the shoulder, which means that my head is at about waist height. If I stand on my hind legs, I’m taller than a lot of adult bipeds.
Male dogs often weigh as much as 140 pounds and can be a few inches taller than I am.
My ancestors were bred as livestock guardians. This means I like to protect everyone in my family. I keep my eye on everything that happens.
I was interviewed by Rumpydog and talked about myself. The interview appears on Rumpy’s blog here: http://rumpydog.com/2012/07/10/introducing-clowie-the-pyrenees/
I wrote about the Santa Pups and how I grew as a puppy: Santa Pups for Christmas? Read this first, straight from the doggy’s mouth
There is also a section of FBQs (Frequently Barked Questions) on my menu bar. https://clowiescorner.wordpress.com/category/frequently-barked-questions/
There is a wealth of information about the breed on the website of the Great Pyrenees Club of Southern Ontario. http://www.great-pyrenees-club-of-southern-ontario.com/
