Old English Mastiff Pictures / Re: LOL... Titan love to sleep with Taz...

Looks like he's either gnawing on taz's face in his sleep or trying to get a little "closer" with taz  ;)

Just have to love out goofballs!

hey there. I have a (almost) 3 yrs old bull mastiff. They stay on the MUCH smaller side of the english mastiffs. He grew VERY quickly when he was a puppy and was at 75lbs by I think 6 or 8 months. He's pretty much done growing at 28" and 115-118lbs depending on how many kitty crunchies he's gotten (GROSS!). He's very small compared to his parents (dad was 260 mom was 180) and I think that has something to do with having him nuetered early (I feel the mad glares everyone. I had to for his health and the health of my pillows  ;)).

If your vet is used to handling large brees and says he looks good I would trust it unless you have another reason not to trust him. My vet has three other bull mastiffs and I think he's up to 5 great danes and many other large breeds (rotties are popular around here).

Toledo is absolutely adorable! Jager is apricot too. I wanted fawn but at least my dog matches my hair  ;D LOL. I wouldn't trade him for the world, most times.

OMG. I'll totally taking Lucian one day! Me oohing and aahing is making Jager jealous but they are SO freakin adorable.

::hugs:: I have to remind my mother that a house that looks like a tornado went through means it's lived in and loved. Somethings you'll never have a do over in. A dirty house is something that you can do whenever. It drives my mom crazy to have her house be a disaster but all our friends say "It's cleaner than my house and who cares? It's your home!" I know it's a pride thing to have a clean house but tell her you'll go if she'll help you clean up after/tomorrow. Mom will take one room and I'll take another. 2000 sq ft gets cleaned a little quicker that way and we both get what we want.

I hope you baby feels better though and nothing too serious to worry about!  :-* :-* Jager has days like that but he's just being a butt when I'm trying to watch TV or get something done.

We've been through everything in my family as well. My mom actually took in my 2 older brothers and other sister because of their mother's relationships (men, alcohol, you name it) and she had to hit rock bottom, lost her house everything, her kids were here so they didn't have to hit bottom with her and were safe. We've all been there in some way or another. Like everyone has been saying, you can't help them unless they want it. You are the first priority. Ranger will be okay. Jager sees one of my exs occassionaly (he lives near by so he'll pass by on his way somewhere) and just looks as if to say "oh. you."

We're all here for you though. Sending furry hugs your way.  :-*

LOL she looks pretty comfy there Mom. I would step on a scale no less SLEEP on one!  ;)

I'm going to have to agree with Jenn, Marie and everyone else.

Over prepared is good. See if you can stop by a store to have it taken off.

My advice: Be yourself, make them laugh. They're sure to remember you that way. Everything is still croseed over here!

My bullmastiff is tiny compared to the other mastiffs here!  :D

He will be 3 on Feb 5 and was 115lb at last visit. I may walk him up to the vet on Saturday for a nail clipping and weigh-in. I just switched flavors on his food (the store was out of the regular bland) to "beef and rice flavored" and he's been going through a couple bowls aday. He seriously hasn't eatting so much food EVER. He lives on treats  ;) I starve him you know!  :D

What a beautiful girl!

Well on our house, lets see:

In case you can't see the numbers on the house, look for the windows you can't see in because of dog slobber and nose prints. The higher windows, yes those are cat nose prints. Also look for the florescent orange tie-out around the tree. Can't see it? Thats because the tree has grown around the rope. On the glass/screen door and yes those are more dog and cat prints with tumbleweeds of fur in the door track.

There are 4 doggie beds for one dog that the cat will lay on too. The chair by the front door: don't THINK about putting anything there. This chair is Jager's only. He's laid on the cat before too.  ::)

There are numberous toys around the front room and the computer room/jager's play room. (The previous owners converted the garage into a dining room). Ignore the slimed glass on the china cabinets and hutch.

We two of doggie artwork on the base of the hutch and the sliding glass doors. There are two baskets with leashes and a lot of space for those toys that can't seem to stay in the basket.  ;) Don't worry about the big puddles in the kitchen. Those are from the cat drinking from the dog bowl (3 sets here as well, and 2 more for the cat) and Jager eatting ice (cheapest treat I've found). Half a counter in our house has become "Treat Central."

We always have an extra a/c filter laying around too so we can change that every few weeks. The return is in the playroom.

Make sure you down trip over the two baby gates corraling Jager to the kitchen. The big metal one: yes it's bent from a certain BP hauling butt through it. The cat fur in the sink you ask? That would be from Bacardi having to jump from the couch through the kitchen window and down instead of jumping the bent metal gate. Snot on both sides of the back sliding doors. Funny how the ones inside are about 3 inches than those outside! The big moon chair by the backdoor has become Bacardi's day bed. The towels strewn around the house are supposed to by the doors and bowls but alas, they too seem to have the run of the house.

The bed in my mom's room is in permanent disarray from a "little puppy" thinking it's a trampoline when being "bad." Mommy's smart enough to keep her bedroom door closed!

Oh there is a pooper scooper by both the front and back door in case we feel the need to go in either place. Just watch for landmines in the back since Mommy's been slacking on cleaning up out there.

And I hope you don't miss the sign saying "Beware of the dog and don't trust the cat either"

I'd say we have an animal house, at least half has already been inflitrated!  ;) ::) :D

Thats a great pic right there!  :D

I have a NordicTrac elliptical. It takes up SO much space but it's awesome. I just started jogging on the beach in august so I'm not using it as much but I love it. Sears closeout here too!

Like Jo, I rarely take my dogs to anyone's house. Too many years of fighting the predjudices just made me tired. It is their house and if the pups are not welcome there then so be it. And even if they are welcome and the place is just too fragile, I stress out, and they stress out, no thanks.We go to petsmart and out to the forest preserves for walks, and even go for an occasional Starbucks, and they are just as happy. However, on a side note, If they come to my house and the dog slimes them, or belches on them or sits on them and farts, too bad.( all of which has happened to various guests) If you come to my house, find a sense of humor or GO HOME.

SO very true. Deal with the drool, gas, belching, toe-stepping, foot-sitting-on, and laugh about it or go home.

I haven't taken Jager to anyone elses home but we all know how Petsmart goes with him.  ::) I have to keep walking about the park when I take him otherwise he's just as content laying in the mud. He can do that at home! Ugh. Dogs!  ;) :D
