The breeder told me Frankie will definitely be bigger, and I didn't really believe it until just recently- Frankie is as tall as her *big* sister, just has to gain some weight, but they don't stop growing until about 3 yrs of age, so we will see...

Old English Mastiff Pictures / Imani & Frankie Pictures

Some pics of my girls to share- Imani is 22 months old, and Frankie is 6 1/2 months, both female English Mastiffs, half-sisters.

And three short videos...

I have used Revolution on cats AND dogs since it came on the market.  The company provided it for free to animal shelters for a few years, and it was the best product I had ever tried- the rescue would have so many animals brought in who were so infested they were dehydrated and close to death, and the Revolution took care of every single flea in 24 hours or less.   We had no problems after that with fleas anywhere- on the critters or in the environment.   It is supposed to work on ear mites as well, but from experience, some of the critters had mites so bad, we felt the best solution was to clean the ears and treat the mites as well as using the revolution on them, so I can't verify whether it killed serious ear mite problems on its own or not, but I CAN say they never got reinfected with mites once we cleaned and treated them.  Maybe its prevention, maybe it is a cure- can't say for sure.

What are the possibilities of moving off base so that you can have the homestudy done and home inspections without the base interfering it in?  It is so sad that these children in need of good homes are the ones who have to suffer because of all the BS and red tape you have to go through just to get them and protect them. They need you- you do not need all the political crap and flaming hoops they make you jump through to do it.

Certainly looks comfy!  When my girls do that it is reversed- the little one sitting on the bigger one for some reason.

I haven't seen it mentioned here anywhere, but have you considered Chicken Soup For the Dog Lover's Soul, or Back to Basics?

You can probably find better prices on any size crate on ebay- just keep an eye on what they have between now and almost time for your new baby to come home, and make sure you get the best deal you can find.   Personally, since I had several different size crates on hand, I started with the smallest one, which is 24", about two weeks later we had to move to the next bigger one, which was a 36" or close to that, and then right on up to a 54".   Neither of my girls are in crates any longer, but it really is handy to keep them around in case of future emergency, such as an evacuation, a long trip, illness or injury that requires them to be kept "quiet" and limit their activity.   You could even build your own crates easily and fairly inexpensively if you have access to materials to work with.

Absolutely!  Both of my girls came from that particular breeder, as well.   If you have questions or concerns on any of the info, email the owner- she is full of info and very helpful.

Sorry- I don't know about the TDI requirements, no experience with that personally.  Maybe you could email someone with experience who is involved and have them get you some answers.  Good luck!

You might want to research and consider having nosodes done for your baby, rather than vaccines and titers.  They are the homeopathic version to prevent the same diseases, without stressing out their immune systems so badly.   A good place to find some info to get you started is  go down the menu on the left side to "Holistic Information"
