Pics of Beau & Luke (more pics added)
« on: March 22, 2008, 01:35:07 pm »
My brindle mastiff is Beau.  He is a 2 year old neutered male and weighs in at 205 pds.  He still thinks he's a puppy sometimes and has the zoomies around the house or yard.  He's a great sleeper as well.  We have had him since he was 8 weeks old, and although he was a very good pup, I don't think I ever want to do the puppy thing again!  These guys tend to be land sharks, and at times I was very frustrated.  He is mellowing out all the time, and getting him another companion has really helped.











My second Mastiff is Luke.  He is a neutered fawn. We got him end of July 07.
He is 7 years old and a sweetie.  Poor guy has always had skin issues as well as recurring ear infections.  He is also cowhocked which is probably  from poor nutrition while he was growing up.  He is 160 pounds and the best dog we have ever had.  After an evaluation with my homeopath, I am pleased to say that Luke has had no skin or ear issues while with us.
I can't say enough about the people that do rescue, because their evaluation of him was spot on.  He has some issues with strange men, and if they are wearing hats, look out!!!!! :o
I take both my boys everywhere with me, so he has gotten much better with meeting new people.  A couple of times a month we  get together with a large dog walking group in the next city from me (about an hour's drive) and he has met well over 30 giant and large breed dogs and their owners.  He is my shadow.







As you can see he has great wrinkle!





The boys are best friends  ;D
They play together all the time, and when Beau is a little too enthusiastic, Luke tells him so!!!
By the way, Luke came with his name, we did not name him.
So people tell me all the time that it must have been karma!










Hope you enjoyed the pictures and the long story.

Chris

Beau and Luke are absolutely gorgeous. I love the wrinkles and the story, I love to hear about rescues! I adopted Tipper from a local shelter at age 2 yrs and Jenny from a rescue group also at 2 yrs old this past October. (I can't do the puppy thing myself!) So glad you found this site, but be careful, it's addictive!  ;D

Tipper (8 1/2 yrs) Golden Retriever/Sheltie mix
Jenny (4 yrs) Great Pyrenees
Gabriel (14 yrs) Sealpoint Himalayan cat
Melanie (11 yrs) Domestic medium hair cat

Thanks everyone.
We think they are pretty special!
I wasn't fussy about the puppy stage though! :o
So more senior rescues for us!!
Don't know how anyone could give Luke away.  I know his mom came on hard times, and only wanted what was best for him, so it's good that there are rescues out there, as well as shelters.

Luke is very much my dog.  When I go to the big city for shopping (mostly for the boys, not for me) Luke won't even go for walks with my husband.  He sits on the driveway and won't move. 
I think I have some older pics to post.

AWWWWW........ so cute!  My hubs asked what I thought about doing rescue after Gunner gets alittle older.
I am very interested,  I think we may even try fostering for a rescue group for a bit.

Oh My Goodness, your boys are very handsome and lucky to have found eachother...no w all you need is to add a Daisy and the Dukes will be complete. ;) I love all the pics and you couldn't be more true about rescue groups they are an awesome bunch of very hard working people. LOVE the fall pic heeheehee we have that trouble here as well but it doesn't really matter what time or year or day something is always 'saved' for later  ;D I'm Kim ~ mama to Miss Libby who is now 6yrs, a new spit fire Stormy, and a crazy Siamese. Welcome I hope to see many more pocs of your handsome boys.
