Those of you who marched in the St. Patrick’s Day parade with us last Saturday may have noticed this little girl walking with long-time volunteer Doug Brown and his Remington and Zoey. When I saw them, I assumed it must be Doug’s granddaughter because I know he has adult children. Nope. This little girl — a total stranger to Doug and our rescue — was watching the parade from the street side with her mom, and when our 52 Pyrs walked by, she asked Doug if she could join us. He handed her Remington’s leash, and she and her mom finished the parade as part of CGPR. Our rescue Pyrs have the ability to bring people together in magical ways, and no one is too small or young to be a Pyr person. … See MoreSee Less
On March 18th 2017, we turned the St Patrick’s Day Parade into a PYR-ade (again). 52 Pyrs and their people marched in the Charlotte St. Patrick’s Day Parade. If you attended, please share your photos! … See MoreSee Less
Amazing to see so many Pyrs and their families! :)
tutus, green dye, funny hats??? I could not debase the dignity of such a beautiful creature.
Apologies to those who were offended. Just saying I wouldn’t do that to my dog.
Here’s what I "did to" my dog:
I took him for a ride in my Jeep- which he loves.
I took him to the park where he got to interact with 52 other great pyrenees.
I took him to the park where he got to interact with over 100 people who love great pyrenees.
I took him to the park where he got to smell all kinds of new smells which he loves.
I took him to the parade where he made HUNDREDS of new friends and got all the attention he craves.
We walked 1.7 miles the whole time he was showing off his calm demeanor and personality.
He wore green beads and a small green hat to support the parade and his community event.
We were cheered and children laughed when they saw 50+ pyrenees – some wearing tutus.
It’s a shame you’d never do that to your Pyr.
Don’t knock us until you meet us and our Great Pyr’s!!!
