Historically, what did Great Pyrenees eat when they were left for days to guard livestock in the Pyrenees Mountains?

They may have been left alone for days but, in fact, their people would go out daily to check on the livestock and the dogs. At that time, they would feed them daily. That is my theory.

You can't really leave the dogs and livestock without checking on them and feeding them.

Here's the thing with that idea. These good dogs have always been treasured by shepherds and the aristocracy. Do you really think they would have been left unattended for days and left to fend for themselves? Doesn't make sense. They were respected partners for the shepherds, and although life for both man and beast would have had its challenges, I'm pretty sure that food would have been shared out. Whatever it was. That rest, companionship and food shared at the camp fire thru the generations is why we have such beautiful companions today. Had they been left wild, we can only guess how that would have panned out.
