Treatment & Preventative Meds / Re: Is aspirin OK to give dogs?

Thank you all so much!!  I had heard that baby aspirin was the one to give them, but I wanted to make sure I was remembering right.  You all are so SMART!!! ;D

Treatment & Preventative Meds / Is aspirin OK to give dogs?

Our Fila, Sissy, hurt her shoulder yesterday and it was swollen and she was in pain.  I thought I had heard that it was OK to give them an aspirin, but I just wanted to make sure before I did anything?  Any ideas? ???  Thanks!!

Congratulation s!  Mastiffs are wonderful babies and he will love you forever!  They are real low maintenance, but do keep a drool towel handy at all times. LOL  Our OEM is 3 1/2 and I adore him!  He's a real Mama's Boy.  They MUST be with their people, so expect him to follow you just about everywhere.  Good luck and have fun!

Great Dane Discussions / Re: Has anyone else had this problem?

I had a good friend who had a dane who sounds a bit like yours.  She ended up getting a TON of fabric swatches and leaving them on the floor.  What ever he didn't eat is what she re-covered the furniture in!  They all got used to sitting on Sunbrella fabric on all the indoor furniture! :D :D :D

That is hilarious!  I may try that! 

I really appreciate all your help.  Now I won't feel bad crating him.  I was afraid that he'd feel like it was a punishment or something.  Thanks everyone!

Rare Breed Mastiff Discussions / Re: Hiya Everyone!

Hiya Everyone,

recently joined BPO, nice to find a place for all the giant breed dog owners. We've got Two Great Pyrenees and a Fila Brasileiro. Our Fila's name is Serenity =) we live in the phoenix area of arizona.
Can't wait to get to know you all better!


Aren't Filas great??  I swear that they know how you feel before YOU do.  How old is yours?  Our girl is 6 or 7...probably closer to 7.  She was a brood bitch for a puppy mill (probably) and was dumped when her cervix prolapsed.  She was found and put into mastiff rescue.  She weighed 113 pounds and was very sick.  She is now VERY healthy and 185 pounds!

I'd hate to crate him because the other two have full run of the place.  Since we got him, we've started blocking off the kitchen area.  He tries really hard to be a good boy and do what you want him to do, but I think you're right...he gets bored!  At least he's normal!  That's always a good thing to hear.  ;D  Thanks for your help!

Our Great Dane, Apollo, is 18 months old and HIGH energy.  He has destroyed our furniture while we're at work.  Is this normal for a great dane kid?  Our mastiff tore up paper and things when he was a kid, but not the furniture.  Has anyone else had this problem or are we just lucky? ;) 

Does everyone get tired of the "They must eat a lot!" comment? LOL

Definately!! I get asked that all the time. Sometimes it makes me want to scream! Pyrs have a slow metabolism, so they don't eat much. I just remember I'm an ambassador to the breed and want people to realize that big dogs are calm and gentle.

I don't know why people assume that just because a dog is a large breed that it means they eat a bunch!  Our mastiff sometimes skips a meal and it doesn't seem to be a problem.   Our babies are couch potatoes so they shouldn't eat much.  :D  Well...the great dane hasn't reached couch potato status yet, but he will one day!  I HOPE! ;)

I've just always loved dogs!!  My husband was the one that wanted the mastiff and now I can't imagine life without a big dog.  Previously, we had two lab mixes and I grew up with a border collie mix.  Does everyone get tired of the "They must eat a lot!" comment? LOL

We are fostering an 18 month old Great Dane!  We'll probably end up adopting him because he is such a good fit.  He's a lot more energetic than most GD's, but he's a doll.  We also have a Fila and an English Mastiff.  All rescues.  I'm new to BPO, too!

I love these pictures!! ;D  Hercules always sleeps between my husband and I, but Sissy usually sleeps on the floor.  She'll end up at the foot of the bed at some point during the night, making me curl my legs up.  OR she gets up between us and lays her head on mine and snores!  :o  She's made to get down when she does that! :D  Life is never boring at our house!  Lots of slobber and love!!  We live in Oklahoma, BTW...

I promise to get some pictures posted soon.  I love to share our beautiful babies!!

I just found this great site!  My husband and I have a Fila, Sissy, an English Mastiff, Hercules and a Great Dane, Apollo.  We have a house full!  Thankfully, Apollo sleeps on the couch!   ;D  I tell everyone that they haven't lived until they've been awakened by a kiss from a mastiff or great dane!  ;)  We are actually fostering Apollo, but will probably adopt him.  He seems too happy to uproot right now.  I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!
