Anything Non-Dog Related / Hello 2006!
« on: December 31, 2005, 09:23:38 am »
Well, here's hoping 2006 wasn't as much of a b***ard as 2005! I hope 2006 brings everybody much good luck and happiness. So far so good here, the sun is shining and it's just right for dog walking... a minor miracle for England in January!

Here's a link to a little Java card that Flynn and I put together last night:

For 2006, Flynn is looking forward to having a new big sister and I'm looking forward to having a shar-pei again in the next few months. This is Libby and fingers crossed, she'll be coming to live with us either in March or around August depending on if she's pregnant. She's coming up for 5 and this is her last litter. She belongs to my friend who gave me/bred both my previous shar-pei and I know all her dogs as well as I do my own. All 3 of us can't wait!

Rare Breed Mastiff Discussions / Error of judgement!

I took Flynn out for his tea time walk this evening. I'd just come back from town after doing my last minute shopping:

Error of judgement 1 - I got changed into my dog walking clothes, decided I wouldn't bother putting my hiking boots on and shoved the nearest pair of old trainers on.

So I took him up the road and planned on just doing a short 10 minute walk, all on tarmac footpaths for me, but with access to plenty of grass for Flynn. So he's having a good mooch and I see two lads walking down towards us with two dogs.

Error of judgement  2 - To let them past, I move onto the grass and walk a few feet, bearing in mind I have a pair of trainers so old they have no tread on the bottom and it's been raining all day... recipe for disaster and what happens next.

Flynn sees the dogs and pulls twards them. I pull back, he pulls harder the closer they get and the lads stop and ask me what sort of dog he is. One last pull by Flynn and I'm on my backside in the mud, shouting at him to stop pulling as he's dragging me along. He turns round to look at me in disgust, so stops for long enough for me to get on my knees and takes off again. This time I go face down and get dragged about 10 feet till he actually gets to the dogs who are, luckily, friendly. No mean feet seeing as I must weigh about 220 pounds! Oh well, at least it was a nice soft landing!

I manage to get to my feet and I really admire the lads for not wetting themselves laughing. They ask me a few more questions while the dogs get to know each other. All I could think was thank goodness it's dark and I decided to go home before Flynn got me in any more trouble. He's SO getting his photo taken in the antlers or christmas hat as revenge!

General Board for Big Dogs with Big Paws / Family Resemblance?

Thought I'd start this new topic so I didn't hog the Dobie one started by Nicole.

Do any of you have photos of your doggies parents? Can you see a strong family resemblance? Here's photos of my Flynn and his mommy Matilda and daddy Leo. I see so much of Leo in Flynn, but he definitely has Matilda's lovely eyes. The thing that always makes me laugh are his 'melon pips' above his eyes. They're so expressive and he lets me know what he's thinking with his own brand of semaphore! When I went to pick him up I stopped with his breeders for two nights and the dogs were a delight to be around. Matilda accidentally locked Leo in the hall at one point (she's an expert door opener). Leo stood there looking at me through the glass door waiting to be let back in - he'd woof and then just raise one melon pip. Had me in stitches and I often think of Leo when Flynn wants something and does the same.

Introduce Yourself to the Forum / Hello from England

Hi Everybody

Just discovered big Paws Only and thought I'd introduce myself (Sharon) and my boy Flynn. We live in England, although Flynn was born in Ireland.

Flynn, by the way, despite his heritage and his name is actually a Tibetan Mastiff. He is 10 months old and a huge pain in the a** to my poor old Shar-Pei Tinkerbell - she's nearly 11 and blind, but still gives him what for if he gets out of hand.

Any more Tibetan Mastiff owners here?
