I have decided to take the plunge and get a puppy to keep my almost-8-moths-old Great Pyrenees company. I posted about my woes with my Great Pyr a couple of months ago and described some of the troubles I was having with him. I got some very good advice and have been working with him diligently. Things are definitely getting better,and I am now at the place where I feel confident about tackling the last sticky issue. Many people said that I should get another dog to be his companion and help him with his guarding duties. I struggled with that idea for a while,fearful that another dog would only add to my burdens. But I couldn't deny that my boy is lonely for the companionship of another dog and that having a friend would be beneficial to him. So, next weekend we will be bringing home a 9-week-old female Great Pyr which the breeder has singled out as having a good personality for an lgd. Here is how my boy looked when I told him a friend was coming. Now I need advice about how to integrate the new puppy. How do I introduce her to our boy,help her to bond with the sheep,and generally get everything off on the right foot?
