Ahh we’ve been trying to find a Pyrenean mountain dog to look after! So gorgeous!

The biggest dog we sat for was a Great Dane called Duchess. She was such a soppy dog and thought she was a lap dog! It was quite funny, because the same sit was a Chihuahua who thought she was a big dog!

My biggest dog wasn’t a sit, but my own Irish Wolfhound, Sam - 180 lbs. No pictures of him because we were together in the 1980s and I’ve not scanned in the film pics.
I do really like the giants.
My first TH sit was with Odin, a bull mastiff in Va Beach.


Next came Chester, a flat coat in Edinburgh - he would go under the back garden hedge to visit the newly rescued pair of greyhounds in the next house.

Grizzly (brown) and Callie (blonde) were a pair of big, old retrievers in NC. They shared the house with 3 other smaller dogs.


And Wrigley on Naples Island in Long Beach, CA. An ‘old soul’ of a yellow lab, but only 6 years old.

The biggest dog we sat for was a 12 year-old Great Dane named Tipsy. She was on heart medication and did not know Great Danes only live between 8 to 10 years! We loved this gentle giant who enjoyed trotting through her avocado grove and leaning against us! Her owners informed us she went to heaven last month. We miss her! She looked so majestic!

On my 3rd sit back in 2017, I arrived in HCMC in Vietnam to spend a day with a family getting to know the Pyrenean mountain dog, but their plans had changed and I only got about 30 minutes to learn about him, before they headed off to the airport for a month!

The dog was a lovely big softy who was vegetarian - he ate a mixture of roasted pumpkin, vegetables and porridge. There was a maid/helper 3 days a week, and her job on a Wednesday was to cook enough food for a week and freeze it - it filled a freezer! He wasn’t very keen on the heat, so walks were short 10 or 15 minutes at a time, but I had a great time with him.

The family have since moved to Cambodia, so my profile and reviews say I was in Cambodia for a month - not yet!

Two Great Pyrenees - they were amazing!! Loved ever minute of 6 MONTHS. The owners went on an around the world cruise - lucky. But we were lucky too, beautiful home, swimming pool, great town (Asheville), and of course these two beauties - Apollo was 95 pounds and Moses was 125!
