Hank Goes On A Walkabout

Actually, Hank likes to take a daily walk about the yard ;-).  When we open the barn gate in the morning to let the old sheep come out and eat special food, Hank likes to come out with them and make a big lap around the house.  He checks to see if any intruders have come around and marks any suspicious spots with a big "KEEP OUT!"


Usually by the time I'm done feeding, he's had enough time out inspecting and he's ready to go back with his sheeps.  Occasionally, if I head back to the house for a second cup of coffee before he completes his circle, I'll come back later to find him sleeping by whichever gate is nearest his flock...and his BFF, Miss Maisie ;-). 


"It's about time you got back out here."

He's a great dog! Every dog should be so lucky to have his own flock of sheep.

Hank has a lot of territory to cover and farm family to protect. He seems to take it all in stride and never complain. Good teacher for us all:-)

I think Hank gets more done in a single day than all our dogs put together! :-)

The life of a Great Pyrenees fascinates me. Thanks for giving me a peek at Hank's life. When we saw the sheep on their migration through McCall it was interesting to see the guarding and herding dogs doing their work. The Pyrenees quietly marched on the edges of the flock
