Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Message Board?
« on: May 09, 2005, 10:18:09 am »
Hello All!

I didn't know if there were any other Swissy owners out there who would like to participate in a GSMD message board like the other breeds have??  Maybe if we ask nicely, Michael, Jamie, and Bear would help us out!   ;)  Any takers?  Come on...who can resist this face??? ;D

Of Course!  ;D We actually have been waiting for somebody to show interest in the board. We'll put it up today but it will be under the new general heading of Mountain Dogs which will include the Bernese and Greater Swiss. Stay tuned for it!
Hugs,

 :)  YES!  Finally.  I have visited this site a few times, but didn't find much information on the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog breed.  I guess they are pretty rare, but they are great dogs!  I should say puppy.  Riley is about 8 months old now and sometimes I forget he's still a puppy considering he currently weighs about 100 pounds and when we go for walks, I feel like hes the one walking me!  Thanks for starting this board!  :)

Yahoo!  I'm so excited that there is another Swissy owner on the board!  Welcome!  Riley sure is a cutie and I TOTALLY understand what you mean about forgetting that they are puppies!  Ranger is 6 months old and weighs 70 lbs. already.  His Dad was on the bigger side of the breed at 140lbs.  Of course, he's still convinced he's the 35 pound puppy we got three months ago and climbs up in my lap for attention. 

I, of course, agree with you that they are great dogs!  Couldn't imagine being without my guy!  Looking forward to seeing you on the board more often!

Hi, these dogs are beautiful.  Their disposition seems fantastic.  Are they a little smaller than a St. Bernard? Someday I would love to have one but they seem pretty expensive.  I love the colors.  Peggy

On the tune of Mountain Dogs...The Great Pyrenees is also known as the Pyrenean Mountain Dog.

Really??  You learn something everyday!!  Woohoo Mountain Dogs!!!  Is Samson completely anti-water like Ranger?

Peggy - They are smaller than a St. Bernard.  They do have a tendency to be expensive, as the breed is somewhat rare, but well worth it!  I hope you decide on a Swissy!  :)
