    Our Great pyr, Smokey, AKA the Great White Pasture Potato, was actually caught in action the other day. A dog, that looked to be a Rottie cross, had come into Smokey's territory. Smokey had him down and would pick him up in his mouth and shake him like a rag doll. This pretty good sized dog was a bloody mess when he was finally able to escape and run off with his tail firmly tucked, hopefully, never to return again. Good dog Smokey!

    They sure do change their demeanor when tresspassed against don't they. My anatolians and anatolian peer crosses are like buzzsaws with intruders - gentle as lambs with their stock. AMAZING and gratifying.

    Yes they do, Yucca! When he was done with this dog, Smokey went and rewarded himself with a mud bath then went and laid down among the lambs and the chickens.

    I say Smokey is a Great Pyr but he does have a splash of Anatolian in him. About 1/4 from his dam's side. He has a long, full, white coat that has a bit of gray color on the under coat in some areas. He is a little narrower but taller than a full blood GP. He weighed in at 132 the last time he went to the vet's. (Which was, BTW, to be a hands on hug dog for a group of pre-schoolers who were touring the clinic!)
