PATEWOOD PYRS – Great Pyrenees

THE LATEST PATEWOOD PYRS NEWS

We believe the size of our babies’ hearts is the most important attribute any of our puppies can have. Ajax, Bling, Zen and Luna are all loving and joyous creatures. This is what makes them special, not the fact that they are drop dead beautiful…but come on …the glam is fun! So here is the latest glam report:

May 5, 2017 at the Bucks County Kennel Club show Cherlyns LaLuna of Patewood really outdid herself. She took Winner Bitch for a 5 point major! Gotta love our joyous, enthusiastic girl!

CURRENT SHOW RECORDS

Cherlyns Zenith of Patewood

As of May 2017, Sweet Zen has been in 10 shows and has received 9 1st places, 2 Winners Dog, 5 Reserve Winners Dog and a Best of Winners for a 5 point major!

THE CREATION OF PATEWOOD PYRS

Suzanne’s love of the Great Pyrenees began over eleven years ago when she had the pleasure of meeting Cheryl Grimshaw of Cherlyn Pyrenees and her amazing bitch “Glory”. It was love at first sight and Cheryl graciously allowed Suzanne to take home a puppy from Glory’s last litter. This bundle of fur captured Suzanne’s heart and grew into CH Cherlyns Ajax T’ Greatest Glory (Ajax). His beauty is only exceeded by his gentle, kind and wise spirit. Suzanne was hooked on the breed.

CH Cherlyns Ajax T’Greatest Glory is the heart of Suzanne and Patewood Pyrs. Born in 2004 – it didn’t take long for everyone to realize Ajax was special. Big, beautiful and gentle – he has always epitomized what a Great Pyrenees is supposed to be. He won his championship title in 2007 by the time he was 3.  In 8 shows he won 8 firsts, 1 reserve winners dog, 7 winners dog and 7 best of winners! Absolutely amazing! After taking 8 years away from the show ring, Ajax went back in as an 11+ veteran at the Nationals to win 2 first places! His OFA hip rating of excellent has helped him sire many gorgeous, healthy winning puppies.

One day in 2014, Ajax saw the exquisite Cherlyns Class is Forever (Eva) and I can’t say we can blame him for his ardor.

This love affair resulted in six beautiful puppies born on June 17, 2014 under the watchful eye of Cheryl.

One of these puppies claimed Suzanne’s soul and Ajax’s son, Cherlyns Zenith of Patewood (Zen), joined the Patewood family.

Not wanting our boys to be lonely, Cheryl assisted us in choosing a female furball to bring home. From Abstrax’s Rotten to the Core and Cherlyns The Donald, Cherlyns LaLuna of Patewood was added to the growing pack.

In November of 2016 we were graced by the presence of the beautiful Bling. This older champion female joined the family to give Ajax some company his own age! Bling has given Ajax a new spring to his step and the two of them are enjoying their retirement years together. Thank you Cheryl Grimshaw for allowing us to add this special girl to our Pyr family.

We hope to be welcoming a litter to the farm in 2017 under the guidance of Cheryl. Stay tuned for news.
Patewood Pyrs would not exist without the guidance, knowledge, generosity and friendship of Cheryl Grimshaw of Cherlyn Pyrenees. From honoring us with a dog as special as Ajax, to teaching Suzanne about whelping puppies, Cheryl has shared her vast knowledge without reservation. We will strive to do our best to live up to the high standards Cheryl has taught us as we to continue to learn from this wonderful woman and her fabulous dogs.
