Rasta is Jamaican or Hungarian originally?


puli white Have you seen already the Puli dog?

The Puli is a small-medium breed of Hungarian herding and livestock guarding dog known for its long, corded coat. The tight curls of the coat, similar to dreadlocks, make it virtually waterproof. A similar looking, but much larger Hungarian dog breed is called Komondor.

komondor_ru_fotos_033_jpgTo tell the truth, I have never seen a Komondor alive. This is a huge dog, my feeling is that it is not so common to find it in Budapest, once most of people lives in small flats. But maybe in the country side it is easier. I got in contact first with this dog when I read at the internet that Ana Maria Braga, a Brazilian TV show hostess, gave as birthday gift to Ronaldo, a famous Brazilian soccer player, this dog in  March 2012 (see in Hungarian: http://brazil.postr.hu/breking-ronaldinhonak-is-magyar-kutyaja-lett). Before that, I never imagined to see such a big and agile animal like this.

They are very nice guardians for properties and livestock, even against wolves and other fierce animals, also loyal to their owners. The tick fur protects them and also warms them up during the winter. They are agile and clever, making them good for training and even they can compete in dog agility trials, obedience, Rally obedience, tracking, and herding trials.

The Puli though is very common, especially in the country side. In Csomád, vilage where I work, I always see some dogs like this and I have to say, always to my mind Bob Marley songs… I can´t help!komodor jumping 

This is not a flying carpet, it is just a Komondor jumping over the bar.

    puli is such a funny dog. It really is like a running shaggy carpet, except with a great personality.

    when you said Bob Marley comes to your mind I laughed outloud:)
