A Chance Encounter

Sadly Rorie's friend the newf doesn't attend Saturday rally so she had to make a new friend. As I was driving up I first thought he was an oversized sable coated male GSD whose ears didn't go up...even though I was wearing my glasses. I opened the door to class and there he was ...Chance the leonberger. Rorie wiggled right up to him her own personal teddy bear...they snuggled. Then it was off to work she loves to work. The working girl does love the big dogs though...

She is loving her Saturday rally class with Chance. Last week she ran right up to him all ready to play and briefly they did. This week she did the same thing it was just a short burst of I want to play. She knows when we are at rally classes now she just screams and you can tell she's really happy to be there. Both of them are focused in class though and its fun watching him work. After class they both saw a Wheaten terrier puppy playing in the yard. Rorie wanted to see her. She was so gentle with the puppy I loved watching her. Then she said good by to Chance ...I think she has a crush. Next week Chance's puppy is coming to class

That's pretty awesome, I was just reading about those a few days ago. How exactly do you pronounce that? I would love to own one someday, they sound like big giant GSD's. Anyone on here own one?

Its pronounced pretty much like it spelled and actually they are from Germany (I googled them and overheard his owner) They were originally bred from a cross of the Newfoundland and Saint Bernard He looks kinda like a giant GSD and he has an awesome temperment and works well too I think

Oh I think they are a rare breed and don't think they are recognized by AKC but not sure?

Rorie met another buddy today literally. We were doing our usual morning walk around the Finger Lakes Trial when we came along Buddy, the pug. I called her to me to put her on leash but apparently she had already introduced herself. She was so good just gently sniffed him and wagged her tail. She was very concerned about his nose and is wondering what happened and whatever happened she believes that it must have been very painful. And Buddy's tail is a very different tail than hers...but she liked Buddy and its nice to have a new friend (will try to take pics of Chance when we see him again)
