    The amount of hair that flews off him, is so accurate, its just hair, hair and hair. Even 1 year after my dogs passing, I still find his loose hair lying around in nooks and crooks of the house.

      Up until July this year we had a boarder collie - we needed to hoover everyday to keep up with the amount of fur she shed. I know if I go into the tight corners and crannies of the house, I'll still find her fur.

      @AJ My dog lived 16 years, and when he passed he just waddled up to me and leaned against me and sat on my lap. To this day , i swear he waited for me to come down the stairs to say good bye. Love and trust between pets and humans has to be one of the greatest of all senses we have. Not sure what to call this sixth sense between man and pets, but there it is, over and over again. Through out the world.

      We still find some stubborn dog hair from my late dog, who passed in Feb 2021. We joke that her fur hiding everywhere (mostly in clothing since we’ve moved to a new house) is her only way to say, “you’ll never escape from me”

      ten years after I lost my dog after his long 16 year life, I still find bones, toys , my tv remotes and as I have always suspected all my single shoes buried in backyard. I always give him a smiling " dammed you " followed by a whispered love you mate, miss you.

    • Hyldr Klein
      Hyldr Klein 2 months ago +2

      In normal cases, dogs dont need baths. We humans only started doing it to keep them up to our human standards of clean. Only time I can think of that they'd need one is if they have large open wounds that can get infected, or if they have some sort of a skin condition that requires a medicated bath.

      BrokenRobot2004 2 months ago +2

      @Yeyo Silver Must I remind you about dogs' prey instincts that they're often specifically trained not to give into? I can even find articles bringing up certain breeds' prey instincts such as Italian greyhounds. Think about it; Why do stray dogs often kill and maim smaller animals together and eat them? They're the same predator they always were, just taught to never defend themselves against humans or other dogs, and are given environments from day 1 where natural behavior such as hunting isn't required and can even be looked down apon and punished for in certain circumstances. Look up "Dog prey drive"! The definition is "Prey drive is a dog's instinctual need to chase and catch things. This is a fairly common behaviour to witness. A dog that loves to play fetch, chase squirrels or cats has a strong prey drive. A dog that lifts its head to watch a ball roll by does not have a big prey drive."

      @Kelsey Arenson yeah, on spring she will be 13. Fortunately, she didnt have a cancer, but about 3 years ago had a inflammation with her reproducing systém so the operation was a must. But after 2 days she started running around like nothing happened :) She doesnt run around like before, but still can sprint for a couple meters without major issues with joints (I gave her supplements for that what seems to work out well), doesnt "fall" on her back legs while standing, so I hope she will stay like that as long as posssible.

      Ours made it to ten and we felt so lucky. Best, sweetest dog EVER. He went down really fast and it seemed fairly sudden. He did finally slow down a bit the last six months or so but then he plummeted. Seems to me there's a genetic flaw there that breeders should address. We still miss him terribly. He was so smart, so loving, so gentle. RIP buddy, we will never forget you.

      When I had my last German shepherd we lived on a set of main roads where people would speed down at 50mph (daytime) and over 90mph (nighttime). No excuse to not take your dogs out for walks. It's vital to their health. Cba to walk them? Don't get them.

    Aw, when I was a kid this reminds me of a friends dog named Trixie (RIP). She was paired up with a grumpy Terrier mixed mutt named Jack. Together they worked the farm, a property that had a 1/4 mile drive way. They'd both come barreling down to meet the school bus. Seeing little Jack running & barking next to her was a riot because she was a sight to see... dust flying, jowls flapping & no where to brace yourself for the collision, the best thing ever!

For no other reason that anybody could figure out, that wonderful mutt lived eighteen years! I think colostrum is a wonderful product, and could probably help a lot of doggies

      @April Luber your dogs have a famos ancestor / relative in the family of the large Swiss Mountain dogs. Barry the rescue dog, he had a good nose. He was born 1800, he saved 40 people in the High Alpine region and is still a Swiss national treasure. His body was conserved and is exhibited in the Museum of Natural History of Bern.
      The moutain pass (St. Bernhard) between the Swiss Rhone Valley and the Aosta Valley (Italy) was a major route (for hikers) - pilgrims, and trade - during medieval times - and an important route in Europe for thousands of year before that. But it was a risky route, in the High Alpine region even in summer snow storms and avalanches can surpise people. But even getting lost in wet wetter can kill people.

      During the 11th, century monks (St. Augustin) built an inn, likely one motivation was to make the route safer for pilgrims that were headed for Rome, and they later bred large, strong, smart and patient dogs. In 2005 they moved that breeding station (the inn still exists and is open for tours and patrons), but the dogs are still in the mountains in summer, at least for a time. Likely to be shown off to tourists ;)

      The dogs helped pave the way though snow, and were able to guide monks and people, and also to find hikers that lost their way, were exhausted or had gotten buried by an avalanche.

      During season (maybe even year round, if they stayed there in winter they needed lost of supplies, and fuel to survive) monks were in the inn. They took care of the patrons, but also monitored the area around the pass. Every day during summer teams of one monk and one dog were looking for lost or exhausted hikers. They reported 2000 rescues within 200 years. That includes soldiers, that used that route during the Napoleonic Wars.

    • Xyz Same
      Xyz Same 4 months ago +10

      @April Luber They were used as rescue dogs, to pull (sledges) or as watch dogs. Back in the day to lead humans home through winter storms and fogs, or to find them (. The sites all warn to leave them alone too long they are easily bored and you need to give them something to do. Work dogs are usually smart dogs - anticipating obedience was the term used, so they can to a degree "think" for themselves and ahead while being eager to please their hoomans.
      people in the comment section seem to conflate the well natured patience of the large dog during the grooming should not be conflated with being dumb. They age fast and do not live long (around 7 - 8 years on averge) so it is possible the the dog is a senior, him stitting down towards the end would indicate that. or he has the hip problems that are typical for such lage dogs.

      Obviously those dogs have to be smart (and patient), with lifestock and around cattle, goats, sheep in the mountains.
      Nice or at least tolerant towards all lifestock and children.

    Great job! I had a dog much like this one but lacked in size. It was one heck of an undertaking. Groomers would often cut her short without asking if it was what I wanted. She had such a beautiful coat and I was devistated when they did that. So its very nice to see you left his luxurious hair! ❤ Also the bee keeper hat is f#$king genius. Wish I had thought of that in the 14 years I had my girl. 😆

    Thunder reminds me so much of a guy I used to work with...the guy didn't care about a lot of things, but he would gush on and on about weekend cook outs and cold beer. He wasn't stupid, he just knew what he wanted in life, and he was happy when he got it. Thunder makes me think that if he has a soft place to sleep, occasional patting, food in his dish, and plenty of things to sniff around the backyard, then he's perfectly content....knows what he wants, and is happy when he gets it.

    I love Bernese Mountain dogs. I’ve wanted one ever since I was a little girl. They’re so funny! Also, FYI, some dogs get exercise running pasture as opposed to being walked on cement so they may not display the signs of cement wear. It doesn’t mean they aren’t being properly cared for. Just saying ❤️

      No to ruin your fun, but panting is the opposite of relaxed. When a dog is panting while standing still it means they're stressed. He's very well behaved and tolerant, but he isn't relaxed, and no wonder, if it's his first time being groomed!
