Neilla has been with us 6 weeks yesterday. Do you ever feel like you struck gold. The only situation that isn't good yet is Neilla and the Cat Fuzzybutt. I am not putting any blame on either, they each have their own personality and agendas. Fuzzybutt has always been a stubborn cat, she will do things when SHE is ready and willing. At this point she is having a bit of fun to see if she can sneak up to our bedroom without Neilla seeing or smelling her. Then there are days when she sits on the other side of the gate and meows to get Neilla wound up so we tell Neilla to behave. Neilla has discovered that she is a big strong girl and can pop over her gate. She did that yesterday but there wasn't any aggression like I was seeing at first, this is just ears up and tail wagging.

Neilla got a big treat yesterday, Hubby took her with in the truck while he cleaned up the snowfall from Monday. Neilla rides so well and seems to really enjoy riding even if it is snow plowing.

Sorry, I had to take a break, some big nose kept flipping my hand and arm up.

Neilla just had her first session with the Extreme Kong, trying to find things to keep her busy. Her idea of keeping busy is petting her consistently, it is more than she likes it, she Needs to have human contact. She played with the kong trying to get the food out for about 20 mins. That is the longest she has gone when she is loose in the house without human contact. I was getting a snack for me and Neilla stayed out of the kitchen. She is learning and is so smart.

This is what I meant earlier when I said we struck Gold. It is like she has been with us for a long time, not just 6 weeks.

I am still a fan of the GSD, but she is the dog that we needed right now.

Val, I'm very fortunate to see many Great Pyrs almost weekly. A national pyr rescue group has a local branch and they vet many where I work.

All ages, all types of health from wonderful to heartworm positive. With few exceptions, they soak up positive attention. It's so fun to meet them, watch them get healthy and well cared for and then go to foster homes or adoptions.

I think you have a keeper and she is very lucky to have you.

What a blessing that you found each other. I don't have much dog experience, but these minds wrapped in fur and trimmed with a tail give us the world.

Glad to hear how well it's going.

Neilla is a BIG lovebug that I just call Bug some times. Her coat is improving, she eats well, I wish she would drink a little more water but we are working on that. She likes really cold fresh water, so I change her water about 3 or 4 times a day. She has started to sneak into the kitchen when no one is watching so I need to get on her training again. She knows when she comes out of the laundry room she has to have her drag leash on so you can open the gate, she walks up and sits and waits for her leash. Need the leash because we are still working on the Cat and Dog situation.

She loves to ride in vehicles, so hubby has been taking her some times when he run errands. I am hoping we have enough snow to plow tomorrow so I can take her in the plow truck with me while we clean up the yard.

Here are some pictures.
Neilla with her Dad.

Neilla waiting for me when I was in the kitchen.

What we watching mom??

Yum, my mid day snack.

Sometimes I just like to Chew on the treat toy.

Nope, Nope I will not look pretty.

How about this mom I think I look like a little puppy.

Now I look like a more mature serious dog.
