Default Three Komondorok

Duna is a neighborhood hero. He roused us at 4 a.m. with insistent barking and though reprimanded refused to quiet down until he led my husband to the fence, just in time to see flames burst from the top of a building across the way. As a result we turned in an alarm which saved the field house from total destruction. It was a cold foggy night, and only Duna's sensitive nose and responsible behavior as an intelligent working dog resulted in such prompt control of a serious fire."

"I was running, slipped and fell. As people approached to help me, writhing in pain on the grass, Oh-M braced himself, guarding me against at least a dozen would-be helpers. A word from me, in an unkind tone, no doubt, brought him to me. With a short wag, he approached me as if to see if I was really in a condition to make important decisions. Another word brought a nose poke in the ear: Well, you're acting a little weird, but I guess you're still lucid,' and the people were allowed to pick me up and take me to the hospital."

(Translated from the Hungarian) "He (Diosgyori Herceg Kajla) was the most excellent protector of house and person. Some years ago a robber with a weapon attacked me in our big house that stands alone. The neighbors lived far away . . . I was alone in the house. It was 10 p.m. The dog, in a special danger-signaling voice, started to bark . . . He was shaking in every joint with rage . . . I tried to calm him, but he did not listen to me but jumped over the fence and caught a man -- the man fired a shot but missed me. The dog rushed at him, pushed him to the ground and placed his mouth on his throat. In this position he held the robber from 10 p.m. until 2 a.m. until the police came from Budapest . . .The police then captured the robber, whom the dog did not wish to release in any way . . . "

People may scoff at you, who see not the lightest blade of grass bent by his footfall, who hear no whimper pitched too fine for mere audition, people who may never really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something that is hidden from them and which is well worth the knowing. - Lord Byron
