@kuvasz,
Hi, Kuvasz..

I'm going to add a few old Pacco photos -

This first one is part of a pair. A visiting friend took two photos of myself and the pacc, and only later after she returned home two airplane flights away, did I see both photos had the bouquet of flowers over my head in one, and the dog's in the other. I sent a holiday card that year printed out with both photos and titled it "transfer of the flower hat". Assuming I find that one of these days I'll post it, but in the meantime here's the one with Pacco 'wearing' the hat:

Here's one of the pacc and me at Crissy Field in San Francisco, the golden gate bridge in the far right of the photo background:

And back in the studio, one of his friend the dobie and him playing..

@Francis,
I love all these pictures of the dogs together playing. They make me feel a little guilty that I've never gotten Pearl a friend. When I move back to the states for good, I will.

@kuvasz,

Especially loved the pix of Dys and his dog.

Yes, it illustrates perfectly the piece you put on the other thread (the one posted by the girl whose dog of 14 years died) about the loyal 'best friend' that only a pet can instinctively be.

Quote:
Aidan, I usually get the coat of each kuvasz cut in late May-early June to the length of the hair on a laborador retriever. By September they are woolly again.

I was wondering because I used to have a malamute/golden retriever mix whose coat came in so thick that even though we lived up in Maine, I had to get him practically shaved every summer. He was so funny for about the first week each time - he'd act almost embarrassed - like he knew he was practically naked- and very shy.

@kuvasz,
Jaysus, are you sure those first two aren't sheep? Were they cross bred with sheep?

@JTT,

Now can you tell them apart?

Quote:
Although white animals are revered as benevolent spirits in Hungarian folklore, the creamy-white color of the Kuvasz coat evolved for more pragmatic reasons. Historically, the journey of the Kuvasz across Euroasia closely followed the journey of the domesticated sheep. To be accepted rather than feared by sheep, the Kuvasz was bred to be sheep-like not just in size and general appearance but also in color.

Furthermore, for its own safety the Kuvasz on guard had to be visible to the herdsman at night, in order to distinguish it from wolves or other predators. Finally, the medium-length coat of the Kuvasz was more than practical: it was beautiful. Wavy, harsh, odorless, and non-matting, its coat repelled dirt and water, requiring no special care to remain attractive. In conjunction with its contrasting dark, weather resistant skin pigmentation, this rough yet luminous coat made the Kuvasz not just a hardy worker, but an object of pride and admiration.

@kuvasz,
So that's its mother. Smile

With all those qualities, it seems like the fur would make an excellent filler for a quilt/futon/comforter.

@Swimpy,
Hey Swimpy - she's a Jack Russell Terrier could be cross with something... she's a rescue dawg - from Ireland - she's very timid, submissive at home - tho when she's goes out on the moors - she's completely different. Very very good girl she is.

@JTT,
kuvasz hair is considered high quality fiber due to the hair's inherent lack of sharply barbed surface producing a woven or knitted fabric as soft as a felted material. In most dogs or mammals the hair surface looks like one of those Christamas tree kids draw; with sharp edges. Kuvasz hair has little sharpness or barbed surface, so, along with exuding a natural oil and water repellent, the fiber does not hold onto dirt like most mammalian hair, which means that once the coat of a muddy-coated kuvasz dries, the fur sheds the dirt... all over the place.

@kuvasz,
Corgis simply shed the hair all the time and sometimes more than others, dirt encrusted or not. The hair would wander to sides of rooms and corners. House could look like the underlayment for a christmas tree...

C'mere, my boy, time for a comb..
