  1. Thank you, I really enjoyed your video! I have a Great Pyrenees, Wendell is 3 yrs. old, and weighs 150 lbs. I probably would have never gotten him because of his size, but my daughter brought him home one night about a week after we had to put our old dog down, we had her for 13 yrs. I am 66 yrs. old and my wife is 65. We said we were not going to get another dog because of our age. But one night my daughter came up the walk holding a big white fluffy something. I knew then as soon as my wife saw him we had a new dog. Now, 3 yrs. later, I wouldn’t take a million dollars for him. He is so sweet and gentle, but don’t come on our property by yourself, he will turn psycho on you! Very protective, and we found him to be no more trouble than a small dog. Just wanted to pass this on, and thanks again for the video, I subscribed and liked it. Oh yeah, Wendell guards 10 head of cattle, and takes it very seriously.
    Respectfully,
    Tim Hall and Wendell
