    Pricey Doing Well
       In answer to inquiries, Pricey, the Great Pyrnese who was recently so very ill, is doing well. She and her mother, Bertha, are sharing nightly guard duty again, and we’ve noticed that when they nap in the daytime, they lie up against each other on their side of the fence.
       Pricey’s new winter coat is looking more like Bertha’s – beautifully white, thick, and wavy. Although they are both full-blooded, their personalities and mannerisms are different.
