Wow, 42 Great Pyrenees, that should count as hoarding 120 regular dogs. How sad. I'm glad the rescue group was able to help with so many of them, and how exciting that you were able to adopt one yourself! Congratulations on the 1 year anniversary. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I've adopted a number of animals on or near various holidays, come to think of it... My cat Ripkin was brought to me on Martin Luther King day, Riley the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I adopted Riley's buddy Phillip a month later right before Christmas, my hamster Dory I adopted around Halloween.<br><br><br><br>
I wish you all a happy anniversary.<br><br><br><br>

No, I don't work at the shelter. They just had their open house just after all the dogs were rescued and that's where I saw them. I met several. My parents were thinking of adopting one that stayed at the shelter and didn't go to a rescue, but they didn't end up doing it. They were all so sweet. I took an orientation there too to volunteer at about that time.<br><br><br><br>
I haven't been to the shelters to volunteer for several months, since my own shelter boy died. I need to get back at it, but there are just too many memories. :/<br><br><br><br>
If you can, post pics of your dog. I'd like to see him.

Either here or in the photo album.<br><br><br><br>
I understand about being technologically challenged. It took me half the night once to figure out how to post pics. I'd give you some tips but I don't even remember what I did.

How cute! In the last pic he almost looks like he's smiling.<br><br><br><br>
I have a friend who has a dog rescued from the same place a few years before Ozzie. Personally, I think this woman should be shot if she breeds any more dogs.
