LOL Thanks! That is one small section of the lighting in my shop. In the background, you can see the stage, before I rebuilt it and made it bigger.

Thanks yall! Yea, he is a gentle giant and yes, he is a slobber maker! @Powell, I do not have a German Shepherd, although I had one growing up as a child. I have five Great Pyrenees (this one, two neutered males and two young female pups) and a rescued Boxer/Bulldog mix.

For some reason I thought you did. I love Great Pyrs. At a friend of mine's business she has one there. Anna greets MEN by sticking her nose in their crotch and drooling. My neighbor up the street has some, had a few more and turned them into the shelter. They went to the Great Pyr rescue in Winston-Salem, NC. Coats were matted and they were heartworm positive. When I saw them at the shelter they came up to me as they would wander the mile down to my house.

NNNN!

They have to be brushed regularly. Unfortunately, a lot of people get these dogs as pups, not realizing they shed, slobber and get huge. I got this one from a Jamaican lady near Atlanta who had him in her town house. He was BEAUTIFUL and smelled so good I just wanted to cuddle up to him. That quickly changed and now he is just a dirty ole farm dog, but is VERY happy with a 36 acre playground and livestock to watch over. I will post a photo of my pups and my other big senior Pyrenees "Rebel" too. I rescued him too, as he came with a herd of goats a neighbor bought but did not want the dog because he already had three.

They are actually 6500K in the middle row (which I think is what I had on in this photo), the edge row (which might have been on instead) is a mixture of daylight and cool white.

He's beautiful, and huge too, like a gentle giant. I don't think I've seen any of his breed here.

Thanks again yall. I did not see these dogs very often growing up, but they have become very popular with farms as livestock guardians because they will protect goats, cattle and sheep from other dog or wolf or coyote attacks. Their origin is the mountains of France and they are often called "French Mountain Dogs".

They dont really get to get near my collection, as they are all livestock/farm guardians now. I have a cat that loves to get right up on whatever I am working on though!

At the Tractor Supply store there is a place for classifieds. Someone had a mix with Great Pyr in it. They spelled it Great Pearinese. I fell out laughing.

Someone I used to know brought hers round once, a huge friendly beastie who left behind enough hair to make a rug from! This was before I had the cats but they are fine with large dogs.
