His courage just blows my mind.

That gaurding instinct comes natural to Pyrs too...Sammy has never been a true gardian per say but his parents were both working dogs...Last early spring I had him out to potty on his leash as we had no fence then...I had heard the coyotes yipping & yapping earlier up on the hill....Well, I think one got too close for sam's comfort...If I ever had any doubts about his gaurding instinct it stopped that night...His hackles went up & he growled the most gutteral primal sound I'd ever heard...He wanted badly to get at whatever it was over the fenceline...I hurried him into the house looking for the devil himself to come after us as the garage door closed...lol!

I had forgotten about this thread and have failed to update you all on Waco.  He is doing great.  Back to his guard duties again.  Teaching the new pups to guard as well.

Sherry and Bruce managed to get up some different fencing that contains Misty (thier other Houdini pyr)...lol  So Waco has back up now.

They got the critter that attacked him (with conservations help).  It was a bob cat which weighed in at 70.8 lbs, which is a huge bob cat!  I believe on the average they normally weigh about 45 - 65 but not 100% sure on the normal weight.
