UPDATE Sunday December 16th, 2012:


As many are aware from the public blanket statement posts I was making, as soon as I understood what was able to really occur with the voting in the food contest, I contacted MDB. This was not resulting in a fair contest to all r/q Rescues involved.

We have been in conversation for the last few days re: this contest and per the positioning of BHRR, we will only wish to operate with continued integrity plus honesty and no food is worth any compromising of that.

Either we all are able to vote once a day, only ever once, or multiple times daily. What was happening was not equal or fair to all involved. BHRR and it was so important that MDB be made aware of what was happening.

I am aware that they did a reset a couple of days ago to try and have people being able to only vote once every 24 hours and some could and others still could not vote again.

We have continued to support MDB in any successful resolution they felt was necessary and per their public post today, they have decided to do a reset from scratch – starting over.

I thank EACH of our supporters and believers that have campaigned so hard to assist the animals of BHRR and in sharing! 🙂 No words can tell you how much this has meant to BHRR for we do go through 120 POUNDS of dog food PER DAY.

AND good luck to all participating for round two!

BHRR's 5th ANNUAL "JUST IN TIME FOR XMAS" Online Auction is ON NOW UNTIL Thursday December 6th @ 9:00 PM EST!

We currently have 122 very exciting items up for grabs! MORE being added throughout the last day of this auction! 🙂

All monies raised shall go to the care of animals in need of BHRR and also assist the two new Saint Bernards headed our way!

BHRR does not adopt out during the XMAS season due to our position that it is not in the best interest of a new addition being added during such a busy, exciting and somewhat stressful time for many. Our XMAS Shutdown period for this year is from Saturday December 15th, 2012 to Monday January 7th, 2013 inclusive.

In preparation in having to do some emergency fundraising for BHRR's Autumn's ever growing mounting bills that shall include having several surgeries, we are going to be offering up  a small  BHRR's Autumn's EMERGENCY Online Auction

Auction details and how to bid can be found HERE – ITEMS can be added at any time – so, please check back!

Starts 6:00 AM EST on Monday October 29th, 2012
Ends 10:00 PM EST on Monday November 5th, 2012

NOTE: BHRR's Autumn's EMERGENCY ONLINE AUCTION does not replace our 5th ANNUAL 'JUST IN TIME FOR XMAS' ONLINE Auction to commence on Saturday November 24th, 2012!

From Friday October 19th to Sunday November 4th inclusive, BHRR will not be open for adoptions or the intake of adoption applications.

We do not adopt out around the Halloween season and many others Rescues, shelters, pounds etc. have also begun to follow a similar protocol.

We do not believe it is in the best interest of the animals in our program, especially for dark coloured dogs.

During this time, BHRR is available 24/7 as always for requests for assistance of animals in need.

BHRR's Scarlett was at the Vet with me last night and she weighed a WOW 38.5 KGs(84.7 pounds). SO, all that weight and a wee bit more that she lost during her complicated spay is now back on in her own body weight!!!

She is such an affectionate girl and yes, all Pyr in so many ways with 'what is in it for me, if I do not want to do what you want me to do, when you want me to do it!' LOL

She was my co-pilot on the way to work and some photos posted of her below.

She is not a wallflower, this girl. Confident in many ways yet, she does do a wee bit of sub/excite urination in strange settings. Not too much. The more she learns what is expected of her as she is communicated to in a clear, calm and effective leadership fashion; the more she understands what is appropriate and she has no issues sharing the communal water bowls(2 of them) and she is more 'crank bluff' than anything when dogs walk by her crate when eating. Her food is a high value item and she is fed in a crate and we have no issues touching anything of hers yet, having come into BHRR so painfully thin – somewhat emaciated – food is naturally a coveted item for her.

If kibble is spilled on the floor, she no longer rushes in to snatch it up and while she wants it; she is not resourcing over it. As she is fed on time, given enough food and that she learns that no one is going to fight her for her food or take it away; she has relaxed and trusted and now is more 'cranky' if a dog walks by and she likes to see them 'jump.' THOSE girls are so smart and can be very manipulative! LOL

She cannot get enough of humans and BOY! Is she good with BHRR's Spice and BHRR's Sugar. Our nickname for her is 'little mama' and though, just a mere baby herself; she is sooooooooooo good! She feels so much better and just today was out playing for 2.5 hours straight and it made my heart soar!

She is now ready to spread her wings further and take that next step and may her right matched forever loving home find her and take the leap of faith in knowing that this is one SUPER dog and as long as you are an effective leader, calm and positively assertive, the pyr in this girl is content to allow someone to take care of her until she arrived at BHRR, no one was taking care of her…clearly, as she was pregnant and very ill coming to BHRR.

She is so low maintenance. Just a very quiet and well mannered girl in the house and her leash manners are abounding, along with all of her other obedience skills.

She had a lot of fans last night at KAH and I do not blame them! She is the dog that reminds me of BHRR's Holden, that many will not 'see' her as they find themselves surrounded by the attention seekers/grabbers in other dogs and they will overlook her and that is a shame. YET, just as with BHRR's Holden, her right matched forever loving home shall see her for ALL the gold and jewels she is and will apply to adopt her.

She is independent while also being dependent. She has proven 100% house trustworthy in our home, is housebroken and she gets along with all the dogs here.

If you remind her gently to mind her manners, she is a real bomb proof dog. Do not give her an inch for she will take a mile; yet; on the other hand, give her love, consistency, structure, routine and obedience and she will hand you her whole heart and soul at your feet and you will be deeply humbled…….

LOVE this dog! She is honest, no sneakiness in her at all. What you see if what you get.

She can go to a home that does or even does not have another dog, or has more than one right matched personality fit dog, a home that works pt, ft, from home, semi-retired, retired etc. as she is once again, another very versatile dog.

She is a gorgeous compact girl! Lovely in proportion and those eyes…yup! MORE gorgeous eyes to drown in! 🙂


BHRR's Scarlett – October 2nd, 2012 – MY Super Co-pilot on the way to work at KAH!


BHRR's Scarlett is healing well from his complicated spay and I have scheduled her booster visit and we shall micrcochip her at the same time on October 2nd, 2012 for 5:10 PM.

Another two weeks after that and she should be ready to be placed up for adoption!

Really awesome dog, very much has a mind of her own this one! LOL Very affectionate too!

BHRR's Scarlett went in for her complicated spay on Monday September 10th, 2012.

Her weight was 38 KGS(83.6 pounds). After her complicated spay, she weighed 33.5 KGs(73.7 pounds). She had not been gaining weight even though she was pregnant and in fact was losing weight as she battling infection plus parasites at the same time. She had weighed just over 40 KGs on September 4th, 2012. She was one really thin girl to begin with and she was giving up all that she had to take care of those unborn babies.

Her uterus weighed 4.5 kgs(9.9 pounds). 🙁 She was between 43-45 days of pregnancy when spayed on Monday and at this time, doing the math 😉 BHRR had her for 16 days at the time of this spay.

Per Dr. Liston, she was very pregnant and she had at least 12 puppies in there….a lot…her uterus was one very huge and long sausage shape according to LAH.

Trying to birth these puppies would have most likely have killed her and possibly all or many of them.

Her sutures will come out with 12-14 days and I have her on Rimadyl and Deramaxx for pain management.

Despite feeling so icky, her tail still wagged when she saw me and thank you Margaret for picking her up after her spay to bring her back to me at KAH. THANK YOU!

This dog is sweetness. Low maintenance, no trouble at all and just soooooooooooooo sweet! The way that she looks up at you is humbling and while I still feel very sick to my stomach for what had to be for her, it was what had to happen.

Once she is healthy with a lot more weight, we shall vaccinate with her boosters and microchip her. In two weeks, I shall deworm her again.

THANK you Dr. Liston and LAH for taking such great care of my 'little Momma'!

So, I know some have been waiting to read BHRR's Scarlett's update……

I took her to see Dr. Liston at Liston Animal Hospital today and her weight was just over 40 Kgs(88 pounds).

Dr. Liston(the same Vet that saw BHRR's Concert and does the cruciate and amputation surgeries on the BHRR dogs such as BHRR's Jaxson, BHRR's Potter, BHRR's Ava Marie, BHRR's Apollo etc.) did a full exam on her:

She was given ointment for her eyes – one eye had a slight green discharge as of today and Dr. Liston said her eye does not look red yet; put her on some ointment. She is also on antibiotics for the next 14 days. 375 mg of Novo Clav SID.

He checked her lungs and heart and mouth and in examining her tail, discovered why it is so stumpy. If you part the hair, you can see a scar and no hair – her tail had been docked at some point. That explains that!

We did bloodwork for HWT, full CBC and a presurgical bloodscreen.

He examined her abdomen plus teats and agreed with me that she is very much pregnant. While not lactating as of yet; she is pregnant. Dr. Liston explained that in early pregnancy, one can feel each puppy as a hard golf like lump. Then, he said there is a stage that everything feels like a long sausage and you cannot feel any individual puppies. Then, in the later stages, an experienced Vet can feel puppies again. Dr Liston says that she is in the middle 'sausage' feel stage.

Dr. Liston pegged her at around 7 weeks(42 days). Gestation can be anywhere from 57-63 days. She is just entering the time where all those bodily changes just begin to really manifest themselves, so, he said it made sense that since Saturday, Sean & I would note many bodily changes with her belly and nipples.

SO, let's do the math….BHRR brought her into our program on August 26th, 2012 and we are now September 4th, 2012. We have had her for 9 DAYS now.

I had thought around 30 days(yet, I am no expert!) and we had the very serious discussion surrounding can we safely spay her. I asked if we could do x-rays to see if there are any skeletal systems and was aware that if we were too early, we would not see anything. I asked Dr. Liston at what stage of gestation can we begin to see and Dr. Liston says that skeletal systems can be seen usually beginning around day 43 of gestation. LEARNING a lot with my visit with Dr. Liston…more than I ever wanted to know…. 🙁

Yet, he said let's do the x-rays and go from there as to whether we are in a safe stage to spay or not for her.

The first one of x-rays did not develop right – she was not quite right on the table(they do not have digital x-rays) and so, all sat on edge as another round of x-rays were done.

When Dr. Liston discussed them with me(he also showed me what he was looking for); I could see what he was referring too. He pointed out that BHRR's Scarlett is just beginning to demonstrate skeletal system development and so, based upon that finding; he said she was more like 35+ days. So, she is in-between what I originally thought and Dr. Liston felt upon just doing an examination. Dr. Liston was very impressive with how thorough he was plus patient, answering my million 'why' and 'when' questions etc.

NONE of which made me very happy for her. 🙁 Poor baby…she is a mere puppy herself.

This was a dog that was suppose to have been spayed by the Shelter; yet in their urgency to save her from being pts sent her on a transport that then turned into the shelter not having all the paperwork completed(she was one of four dogs that had to stay back due to this paperwork incompletion) and we had to pay for boarding for a week in Ohio and get her on a transport a week later. If she had been spayed at the shelter OR if she had arrived to BHRR when originally planned; we would not be looking at 35+ days of a pregnant dog. 🙁

Getting back to Dr. Liston's appointment with her though….so, in reviewing the x-rays(if it was digital, would post it here as all know how I post so much in a Gwennie novel!), you could see about 4 very very very small white lines beginning and there is most likely quite a few more in there that are not yet quite showing up. Very very very small white lines – to me almost like just a long dot and when Dr. Liston had me step back and review the x-ray from further away; you could see the 'shape' and the 'white dotline'.

So, Dr. Liston and the whole staff is very much aware of my position on spaying and neutering and he said that yes, she was still early enough to spay and we have scheduled her spay for Monday. He and his techs are supportive of why she should not be having puppies – she is a baby herself – even less than 11 months possibly and this is the best thing for her and I know that this decision is not going to sit well on several and that is unfortunate.

She should not be having babies and breeding should be left up to the experts and it is not just the cost and time involved; there are all these dogs/puppies already born that are hurting for homes and most of them shall end up being pts as there are not enough homes for them.

BHRR believes in full disclosure. Always has and always will and it could have been so easy just to say; she is being spayed and no background given re: her possibly being pregnant and having it confirmed etc. YET, we believe in educating and informing and PLEASE people; spay and neuter your pets….babies should not be having babies and dogs should not be bred without serious health testing and left up to the r/q show breeders who are out there not only preserving the breeds that we love yet; constantly improving upon their own lines. Breeders who bred very rarely, have contracts, screen homes AND are there to take their dogs back should the purchasers homes not work out…..NOT left to r/q Rescues to clean up and pick up the pieces and do right by these dogs.

Breeding is not about throwing two dogs together, it is not about having your children experience the miracle of birth, it is not about you just wanting to have a piece of your current dog and is is not about making money, exploiting dogs and making them have lives of misery for the benefit of bybers and puppymillers.

BECAUSE people did not do right by BHRR's Scarlett(she could even have been made pregnant by her brother that was adopted the day before the first attempt at transporting), BHRR shall have to 'clean' up. AND you know what, it sucks….it really does. Now, even in the spaying, there is always a risk to her…there is a risk even if we did not spay to her own life.

I value life….I cherish life….and do not think that I do not feel ill to my stomach for the lives that shall be aborted….35+ days or not and at the time of spay, she shall be 41+ days.

This was one of the worst blogs I have ever had to write.

SHAME on those that breed irresponsibliy and without thought and care…….SHAME!

AND one more time…..

SO, let's do the math….BHRR brought her into our program on August 26th, 2012 and we are now September 4th, 2012. We have had her for 9 DAYS now.

I am calling first thing tomorrow re: BHRR's Scarlett.

From all body signs given, IF she is pregnant, she is about 30 days. BHRR has ONLY had her for 8 days and oh my WHAT changes Sean & I have seen in these past few days.

So, let's all do the math….. 😉

In talking to one person today, they postulated if she is just coming out of a heat….If that was the case, the shelter would have noticed…..or those that transported her that one day to the boarding facility as the paperwork was not in order from the shelter and she and several other dogs were not able to cross the border at that time.

So, tonight as BHRR's Scarlett(who arrived 6 days ago) went outside; I looked at her closely and then looked at Sean and then at her and then at Sean…..

Just as I was about to ask – 'does she look like she is gaining weight as if she is pregnant?'; Sean says 'does her nipples look very swollen and mature to you?'

We look at each other and then I have my hands all over BHRR's Scarlett and then I look at Sean and said, it is one of four things:

1) false pregnancy
2) possible heading into heat
3) weight gain for she was a bit ribby arriving last Sunday
4) pregnancy

Then, I sit and watch her real close. I am not liking the way that belly is looking….

So, her original appointment at the Vets was suppose to be last Monday yet; I was at emerge and it had been rescheduled to the 14th of September with her spay to follow shortly afterwards; BUT; I am calling first thing on Tuesday and am heading in ASAP!

With this past week with BHRR's Concert's immediate needs; I have perhaps missed a possible earlier sign of a possible pregnancy. I freely admit to not being an expert as I have never bred a litter yet; there are signs I am a bit; ok; well lot worried about.

AND if she had arrived to BHRR when she was originally suppose to; her appointment at the Vet's would have been even a week earlier than what was scheduled this past Monday.

AND as most who follow the BHRR blogs should know; with the most recent 'possible' of BHRR's Emma(which turned out not to be a pregnancy); we shall abort if this is the early stages.

Once again; I understand how this is a controversial subject to some yet; I stand by all the same reasons I stated with BHRR's Emma that include that having her whelp a litter is adding yet more animals in a system where so many already do not have homes. I stand firmly that only certain dogs should be bred, that breeding should not be taken lightly and that breeding should be done by highly r/q show breeders.

So, while there will be a few(again) who think it cruel to abort an early pregnancy ( would not ever jeopardise BHRR's Scarlett's health if it is too late in stage); should it be shown that she is pregnant – I invite you to come to my home and help ensure that she receives all the special prenatal care she deserves, be there around the clock for whelping time; prepare a whelping box, prepare for the very real possible of having to rush to emerge for a c-section(in the wee hours of the AM quite possible); prepare to have some survive and others not; prepare for possible tube feeding every two hours should mom not be able to feed or reject them or dies; prepare for vet visits for exams and boosters and altering and assist me with microchipping and the feeding of mush to kibble and what if any are special needs pups and begin to housetrain after weeks of cleaning up after them and the sleepless nights and the cost of it all…..thousands and thousands and thousands of $.

My commitment to BHRR's Scarlett is just that my commitment and dedication to her welding and *if* she is pregnant and if, it is too late to spay; you bet I shall be first in line to make sure all the above and then some is done and done to the best of the best of how it should be.

First step, see if she is pregnant first though… 😉

Relaxin testing, x-rays and u/s coming up!

She is integrated with all here and doing very well. Likes to hump our Kingston and try to push our Cherokee around and is very Pyr in many ways!!

The stumpy tail is black lab though!! While her brother looked Pyr/Newf; she is small and compact like a lab with a Pyr face and 'tude while at the same time is sooooooo affectionate!

BHRR's Jersey & BHRR's Scarlett have had their vet appointments cancelled and I shall reschedule them when I am at work on Saturday. With the pressing case of BHRR's Concert, I have just postponed their visits for a wee bit.

BHRR's Scarlett is now safely at BHRR. We are relieved to have her finally here. Here is my post of thanks to all those that assisted this weeked on the latest transport of many dogs to their new lives!

So Mallie(BHRR's Scarlett) has now arrived safely to BHRR! 

No issues at all upon arrival. Was very submissive coming in to our house and seeing/walking by a few of our dogs and she is now resting. Socialisation and training 101 shall begin. 🙂 The journey of her rehabilitation now starts towards a loving forever home future!

We are looking forward in getting to know her and from myself, Sean and Mallie; we want to thank EACH of you for all that has been done to get her and all the others gems to their destinations!!! 

Thanks for all the updates and Lucy; thank you for your magic once again in pulling this weekend's run together.

So many amazing people out there helping these deserving animals and I am so grateful to each of you.


Below are some excerpts on her journey. WHAT a long haul this was for her…. 🙁 It has been a very long week for us waiting for her arrival!

From Lauren R.:
I had Mallie in my car today(Saturday) and she was a sweetheart. She was a little growly when she got near some of the other dogs but it didn't take much to distract her away. 

She needed an alley-oop into my car and settled right in.

Diane Baxert M.:
She was an absolute doll!  No problem getting her into the car & quiet as a mouse during the drive.  I'm sure with a bit of socialization & her great disposition, she will be the perfect fur kid!  Good Luck Mallie to your new life in Canada!  

Renee C:
Mallie is just a sweetie – tired, slept all the way to Oshawa  to meet Julie – who had a liver treat so they are now best friends

So yes, Mallie's social skills could use some finessing. She has a lousy meet and greet. But she's got to be 90% black lab, which pretty much means in her world, liver 1st, people-attention 2nd and everything else including the cat third.
She did snarl and go after my dogs but was easily re-directed.  Initially she was curious about the cat but then decided she better chase and then slime it. No harm done. Have escorted him to higher ground.

At the moment she seems pretty playful, running around the yard chasing a ball (but doesn't seem to know what to do with it) and tolerating the other dogs fine.  She comes back to check in and get her liver every few minutes or so. Lovely girl 🙂

Nighty night..

August 24th, 2012 – you can sure see the Great Pyrenees!

BHRR's Scarlett is booked in for her initial exam on Monday August 27th 2012 and we shall hwt, booster DAPP, chip and do presurgical bw.

Her spay has been scheduled for August 30th.

The transport is running as scheduled for this weekend and I am so looking forward to her arrival.

It has been a long haul getting her here and I cannot thank those involved enough for their assistance!

The one thing that I have heard to date on her transport so far is that she does not mind getting into the vehicle, travels well and shallow steps are fine yet; steeper steps she is not comfortable with.

Unfortunately, there was an ;omission made in KY, USA and though the HC was signed, the Rabies certificate was not and BHRR's Scarlett and three other dogs were not able to continue on the transport for today and have had to board for the week in Celina, Ohio.

Not an expense that we wanted to be taking on and one we have paid as we committed to assisting her.

So, she is now hunkered down in a boarding facility and I have already been in touch with the boarding facility; adter being advised by the transport co-ordinator of this error. Thank you to those involved like the transport co-ordinator that worked so fast to guarantee these four dogs had a place to go and the sending facilities were advised by the transport co-ordinator and centre to ensure that the proper and signed paperwork is to be sent to the boarding place for the transport to happen on Saturday.

So, ;they made it as far as Celina, Ohio before someone noticed that their papers were not in order.

I asked the boarding place to please give her a hug for me and they said they would. They said she was super sweet! 🙂

Rest easy this next week my dear one…..soon! Soon, we shall meet! 🙂



BHRR's Scarlett(Female) & BHRR's Rhett(Male) are two Great Pyrx's – could be with lab or GD or Newf. Will take a closer look when I meet them!

ETA to BHRR is this weekend. They are currently in KY, USA.


Hi. My brother and I were brought in here and we are scared and not really sure what is going on.  We are really sweet 1-yr old great pyr mixes, about 80 pounds,  and this is not where we wanted to spend our weekend! I don’t understand how our owner could just leave us here? Please help us – we are good doggies and just want someone to love us!  Love,

BHRR's Scarlett(female) & BHRR's Rhett(male) @ The Shelter
