Hi Piffka -- I was kinda surprised at some of those answers, too! No, it didn't take too long... I was kinda bored and was looking for something to do!
Hi quinn -- I also belong to a discussion site where we all own Border Collies and many of the people at that site also have Pyr's (Great Pyrenees Dogs). They are being bred to guard livestock. My cyber-friend, who raises Border Collies, lives on a big ranch and she uses her Pyr's to guard the sheep. When 'Lady' had her little Pyr puppies, my friend tried not to handle the puppies too much and when the puppies were about 4 or 5 weeks old, she put a lamb in the pen with the puppies. Her Pyr's have a really strong guard instinct. They snooze during the day and walk the fenceline all night. I'm with you, I would love to have a Pyr. Mine wouldn't be a guard dog, though. Mine would be a house pet!
