A 240 lb dog???? Holy dogs that's huge !!! My son has a Bernese mountain dog that's about 80 lbs. noel

Our dog was supposed to be a Pitbull..  Well- they were half right..  He turned out to be a bull mastiff and a couple other things I think!..  He weighed in @ 137 lbs last appointment..  He's a cuddler too..  I awoke to thunder and lightning the other morning and a shivering dog snuggled up to me.  What a big wuss!  I took him for a walk yesterday and a poodle met us and after the initial sniffing over she started to bit my dog's nose !  He was like-  Whaaa??  You talkin to me??!?  We separated them and moved on down the trail..    :firejumper:

 

As far as the man's best friend thing he is mama's little boy!  Think's he's a lap-dog!

I found my self lost after about a month with out a dog. I wanted one at least 6 months old but I lost that argument even though this was decently going to be my dog.

 

Meet Lily a 8 week old Shir Pia mix pup we got from the Saginaw county  Mich.  animal shelter.

She also has been a costly pup, With in days of her first visit to our vet she got a huge bump on her shoulder area and pimples on her face. She had puppy strangles. With several visits to the vet for shots and meds we were able to cure her.

 

Note around the left eye and on the right side of her nose.

For a long time she had a problem with this bridge over the creek. Going north she refused to use it rather wade the creek. Going south she would go out on it and wait for me to catch up before finishing the crossing then attack me. When spring came and the creek was high and cold she finally would use the bridge to cross going north and hasn't stopped even though the water has warmed and is low.

She even crosses the log laying across the creek at the back of the woods. She will even turn around part way across and come back.

She has a great nose and can find a mouse in a 3 foot snow drift.

She is a year old now and weighs 45 pounds. She has her days when the deer that we see on our walks don't do any thing for her and then other days she wants to go play with them.

for a while in April and May we had a last summers fawn that would meet us in the woods then walk the paths with us. When she had her fawn she stopped walking with us but will some times come and stand beside the trail.

Great stories.

Is any ones buddy comfortable riding around on a GT or in a trailer?

 

I'm going to make a big effort this fall to get Massey wanting to go for a trailer ride.

I think it shouldn't be too hard. I may just have to tie a couple of steaks into the

front of the trailer. :smilewink:

My inlaws keep giving us dogs. The first one I sent back, way too rambunctious. She tore the shed up and destroyed just about anything. Including the last of my chickens. The last one is actually working out fairly good. She is a lot calmer and just had a litter of pups.

Over the last fourty six years we have bred, raised, trained and shown German Shorthaired Pointers, Silky Terriers, Old English Sheepdogs, and Tibetan Mastiffs. Have also owned but not bred, a Beagle, two Akitas, a pit bull, a Rough Collie X German Shepherd,an Australian Cattledog X Border Collie, and a German Shepherd. More stories involved with this lifetime of hunting partners, co-workers, defenders and family members than I can even begin to relate. Right now I have Ariba, the German Shepherd, Kawasi, the black female Tibetan Mastiff, and Asia, the black and tan male Tibetan Mastiff. One of the most heart rending things I have had to go through with all of these guys was just recently when I had to try to explain to Ariba that our Olde Deere was not going to be coming home again. From the time eight years ago when we got her as an eleven week old pup, he has been her god and the only person she has looked to for meaning in her life. She likes me fine, but he was hers to look after and be with. If he dropped some thing, she picked it up for him, if he was in the garden, so was she. She rode in the J.D.4040 cab with him, she worked in the shop with him, and she sat beside him on the bench at the table every night after supper. In the first six weeks after he was gone she lost almost twenty pounds and looked for him constantly. Wouldn't eat, sat in the yard beside the tractor and waited, lay in the shop and mourned, checked his side of the bed every morning. Now she is starting to come back to herself, has put some weight back on and brings a stick to me to throw for her now and again. But still, in the evenings, I see her get that distant look in her eyes as she lays in the kitchen beside the table, and I know she's still waiting.

I don't have any pictures, but I was raised by a wolf. Well a half wolf anyhow. Candy was a German Shepard Timber-wolf hybrid. She was the smartest and sweetest thing ever. When we were kids my mom could put us on a blanket in the front yard and go in the house. Candy would not let us off the blanket. As we got older we learned that if a neighborhood bully got after us we just had to run just in side the reach of her dog run. Candy would knock them down and sit on them tell one of my parents would come out.

 

Currently we have Carmel (a boxer blood house mix) and Diesel ( a German Shepard Great Pyrenees Wolf mix). Carmel is smart and energetic. Diesel is strong and stupid. They make a pretty good team to keep up with Heath.

Nice looking dog----chashing her tail--- sounds like me sometimes when I'am working on something and not getting any where.

 

I've been getting real good at that!   :rolling:

Beautiful Shepard. Looks so much like our Sadie when she was alive that I  can't believe it.

We finally moved our sofa away from the window for that very reason.  :D
