Sparky, Shmoo, & Eva at play

Here is a video of Sparky and Shmoo playing with Eva. Eva is sixteen this year and as sprightly as ever. The two Great Pyrs are seven. Although they are brothers, they are very different. Sparky, who has the biggest head of any dog I’ve ever seen, is truly a chihuahua (or I guess 92.5 chihuahuas) in a 185 lb body. He is having a few problems with his joints and moving slowly, although he is always ready for a bit of gentle play.

Shmoo is still as full of mischief (and barking) as ever. They are both bossed around by Eva, who has always run the show, no matter what otter dogs are around.
