Another cute addition

We've been on a search for awhile for the PERFECT dog for out here.

I was pretty sure I wanted another Pyrenees. The question was did we want to start from scratch with another puppy? or find an older dog that might teach Miss. Maggie a few things, like coyotes don't really want to be your friend? (to be honest I was terrified that the coyotes were getting closer to the house, and Maggie wasn't seeing them as a threat- if figured if one was bold enough to approach her she'd probably just roll on her back and think it wanted to play)

But finally after months of searching the ads I found the dog...

(hmmm...blogger is doing something funny with the pictures- it rotated on it's own and I can't figure out how to turn it back!)

Welcome Jasper
he's an 11 month old 3/4 Pyrenees 1/4 Samoyed cross

and those cuts on his nose? from a couple weeks ago when he tangled with a coyote. He's already fearless, not another wussy, city-fied dog around here.

He was also raided around 2 little girls ages 2 and 6, so Nathan's sometimes spastic behaviour is totally tolerated by this pooch.

Right now were working out the kinks. Like, he's never worn a collar or been on a leash. He also seems to think climbing people is an acceptable greeting. But he's coming along fast.

And of course Maggie is thrilled...but we knew she would be.
