Bullmastiff Discussions & Pictures / MASTIFF in need - VA
« on: June 03, 2005, 03:01:03 pm »
Hi, Mastiff lovers,
Today, I saw an ad, in a local "free to advertise" publication.
I'm in Front Royal, VA, in the Shenandoah Valley.

Mastiff, Male, intact, abt. 5 yrs old.  Has shown some aggression
to other dogs. Must go to a home with no small children, and lots

This alarms me  -- for several reasons.
Mastiffs are too often adopted for the "oooooh factor",
only to find out later the dog requries more than you have to give.

Who should I contact?
Should I put the phone number on this website?

Worried about the big guy,

Border Collie Discussions & Pictures / Grieving Collie

Hi, all,
I posted a note earlier, but don't see it on the web page.
After our bloodhound Buck died, we tried, in vain to help his grieving mate Gypsy.
But, she just had to catch up with her "guy",so she laid down and died.

My husband and I were in some kind of shock, I think.
We left town for a few days.
We stopped at my parents home tonight.  It's the first time I've had access to a computer.
Tomorrow we'll go home.
It will take time, but Buck and Gypsy will settle into our sweetest memories.

Thank you, -  all of you -- for your kind words, thoughts, and prayers.

My male bloodhound, Buck,  died 2 days ago.  
His lifelong yardmate has been Gypsy, a female Collie.
I've always felt Gypsy was not MY dog, as much as she was the
bloodhound's dog!
She reacts with hysterics if I even try to take her out of the yard
where he is, to go to the groomers.  I had to stop! Even used a vet
who'd come here, so Gypsy didn't have to leave Buck's side...

Now, she wont' eat and is very lethargic.  It's been 2 days.  I've tried special treats, inviting her to come in the house, or for a walk.  Now, I'm just letting her have her quiet space.
I'm scared.  I don't want her to starve to death.
Has this ever happened to you?
