Do Pyrs shed?
Pyrs are notorious for staging an annual event known as "coat blowing" - or the great blow out! During this ritual, its like they continue to grow hair just so that you can comb more out of their coat - it seems never-ending.
The picture at right shows the result of one "daily" brushing. You can expect such a routine to produce huge quantities of hair EVERY day of the coat blow out. It helps to give your Pyr a side of beef to chew on while you attempt this brushing unless you feel that you really need the exercise. Our Lilly thought this was a fun game.
A New Look
The two pictures below show our pooch after she dropped all that hair. She looked like someone else's dog. But the new look didn't last long. She immediately began to sprout new growth.

The unique tail and coloring is the only clue that this pup is a Great
Is a Pyr for you?
