No Kuvasz, but very cool wildlife rescue

These injured wild animals in North Carolina are brushed free of debris with mascara wands.
"Burgin recalls a particularly aggravated white squirrel that bit the person who first picked her up. The squirrel was covered in fly larvae and needed attention, and Burgin had to use a towel when holding her down to avoid being bitten herself. But once she started combing the squirrel with a mascara wand, the animal relaxed to the point where all Burgin had to do was lift her little paws out of the way to groom her."

Serious puppy

“In profile, the skull is only moderately arched–rather flat, continuing with a smooth line to a hardly perceptible stop and a long, straight nose.

Donatello

Heini of Iipanaapan Kenneli in Finland shares this photo of her son, peeking from behind her, and her Kuvasz puppy Donatello.

This photo showcases the characteristic pigmentation of the Kuvasz:

“The colour of the coat is a uniform white, while an ivory tinge is acceptable.”* 

“The skin has dark pigmentation....The colour of the skin under the hair is also slate grey, best seen on the belly, where the hair is less thick than on the rest of the body.... The nose, the eyelids and the lips are always black...."
“The slanting eyes are special, quite unlike those found in any related kind....The eyes are medium, slightly oblique, almond shaped....The eyes are either dark brown or black. The eyelids are black. Their expression reflects strength and courage....The eyes must not be horizontal but set obliquely with tight rims.”** 

*Dr. Tibor Buzády, Dogs of Hungary, trans. Bernard Adams (Budapest, Hungary: Nóra Kiadó, 2002), p. 100.

Nevetős

Isidora of Homokpusztai Haramia Kuvasz Kennel in Serbia shares this photo of her 3-1/2 month old female Nevetős walking with her young owner.

Nosztalgia

Isidora of Homokpusztai Haramia Kuvasz Kennel in Serbia shares this photo of one of her puppies with her happy new owner. Nosztalgia is a 3-1/2 month old female.

This photo showcases a happy Kuvasz trait: “The eyes are almond shaped and oblique, which gives the dog a lively appearance, as if smiling; one can easily tell what is in its mind from its lively, rapidly reacting expression.”

Dr. Tibor Buzády, Dogs of Hungary, trans. Bernard Adams (Budapest, Hungary: Nóra Kiadó, 2002), p. 100.

Showing off the town that Lany and Maya call home.

Just a bit of sharing--this is my town, the home of me, Lany, and Maya, the Kuvaszok. This hotel is near our home and where we have Christmas dinner.
