Hello from England
« on: October 27, 2005, 07:24:42 am »
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?

Hello and welcome, Sharon, Flynn and Tinkerbell!  I have two Newfs, Cowboy, three years old and Chester who is 8 months and a ball of energy!  Where are you from in England?  We just had house guests last week from Lemington Spa so I am still speaking "English".

Look forward to hearing stories about your pack!

Hello and welcome.

My name is Chris, and I have a husky/shep mix Keiko, and a great dane pup Gunther.

I'd love to see more pics of Flynn and Tinkerbell.  And tell us more about the Tibetan Mastiff.  I know a little about them, but I always like to hear personal experiences, since alot of dogs don't go "by the book"

HI! I'm Jeanne from Louisiana. Flynn is beautiful. I'd love to see a picture of Tinkerbell, too. I have and australian shepherd, an australian cattle dog, a collie/golden retriever mix a beagle and an ACD mix, as well as several other dogs that pass briefly through these doors looking for new homes. I try to always take in the big ones.

Can't wait to hear more about your doggies in England!

Welcome to BPO. I love the blue accent your post has. Your English is very good. I almost can't tell your a foreigner.

Your boy is so handsome. It's the good Irish heritage.

Welcome,
Pupdaddy

Hi Everybody

Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll try to post a little more as I've been busy this week.

For the person who asked, I live near Manchester.

Here's a photo of Tinkerbell with Flynn. She's going to be 11 in December. Sadly, I lost her daughter Phoebe in March to kidney failure. Here's a photo of Phoebe - she's actually a full pedigree despite the long coat and they are known as 'bearcoats'. They appear occasionally in normal litters and I must admit that I like the bears the best!
