Pyrless the Pyrenees Mountain Dog Story:
Named "Pyrless" for the word peerless, meaning "without equal" the p-y-r spelling because he was a Great PYRenees. Thus Pyrless. In loving memory of Pyrless the Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog. He was born in a barn, an unwanted litter. He was seen in an ad in the paper, immediately the new owner drove and got him. He was like a fluffy white seal pup. Pyrless served as a St John's Ambulance therapy dog, working in homes for the aged, and then the one he liked best; a youth detention facility. Pyrless and his owner (a nurse) drove down after Hurricane Katrina to volunteer; they spent much time visiting children in red cross centres. One time they were in a car accident and he was separated from his owner when she was sent to the hospital. This was in the wild north. When the owner was discharged 10 hours later, she went back to that place on the highway, and after calling to him for over a half hour, out he came, from the woods, in shock, but unharmed. The owners words, “He was a loyal, special, spirited friend who I miss like something was amputated from me”. He had a full and wonderful life of giving and receiving and will forever remain in the hearts of many – Jai Cleminson
