Two months of life with Nemo. I can barely remember what it was like before.
Living with a Great Pyrenees is a wonderful thing. Nemo at 6-7 months is already a giant, cuddly, well-behaved member of the household. Sometimes, however, he remembers to be a puppy and then you get taught harsh lessons in the transference of kinetic energy.
Nemo is the buddy-clown. He's already my daughter's favorite snuggle-pal for TV. I've been working on his obedience training and am beyond impressed with the speed he figures things out. If you pay him in a treat he'll figure out almost anything in 2-3 tries.
We've been camping, to dog parks, kindergarten graduation and jazz-by-the-bay. Nemo draws a crowd!
If you're NorCal resident and interested in a Great Pyr I highly suggest contacting the Great Pyrenees Rescue of Northern California. They placed Nemo here with me and have PLENTY of other dogs who need homes. Here is the story of how Nemo's mother and his entire litter were found and rescued. Poor Nemo was one of the 3 puppies who got really sick!
I'm in love!

You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets. But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
Almost everyone has their smartphone in a case of one kind or another. Beyond simple protection, finding a case that can charge your phone on its own, but doesn’t feel like it’s also adding a couple pounds to the phone’s weight is the tricky part. Billed as the world’s thinnest battery case, the ThinCharge iPhone […]
