I'm getting a NEW PUPPY!

Monday, November 07, 2011

To help me get outta this funk, my husband thought he'd buy me a new puppy for my birthday. He brought me around to meet a few breeders, and I got very discouraged with the horrible money-hungry jerks out there. then out of no where there is this lady, with a pregnant bullmastiff, and the parents are awesome pedigrees, and then we drive out there five days after the babies are born, and she's even more wonderful in person. So now I have to choose what puppy do we want? There are 11 puppies total. Chris is partial to the dark brindle. I love the dark brindle too, but they are harder to show - and I want to get into handling/showing with my daughter. Either way, this will be a very loved pet, and showing is more for us to learn with the dog and see if it's something we can do more of in the future.

So now I need some names.. We have Chester, Klaus (pronounded like cloud with an s instead of d). We both agree we would prefer a male, but never know!

hmm.. so hard to choose just one! we go back in 4-5 weeks to see them again..


Here's our big boy who can't wait to be a big brother

    I am so excited for you!!! But I would be really careful about adding another male, in fact, the breeder should have advised you of that.

    I'm sorry to be a downer and please don't be insulted, but we get so many dogs into rescue (both bullmastiff and bulldogs) because of same sex aggression.

    Oh, I should also add, that several years ago I did quite a bit of showing and winning with my own Bullmastiff boy.

    Thank you for not buying from a puppy mill - too many people breeding their poor dogs for a quick buck with no regards to the dog's health or to the health of the future puppies.

    I love the big dogs (don't tell my Pomeranian that!)as they are often the gentle giants. If it was me, I wouldn't worry about what would show better...I'd go with what my heart tells me to do. I think the next time you visit the puppies will be old enough to glimpse some personality differences and go for the one that steals your heart.

    Wish I was nearer....nothing in this world is better than puppy breath!!!

    Awe!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was lucky, both of my pups were the ones no one else wanted! Still can't figure out why, the others would have to be even cuter than mine. LOL

    Mastiff, such nice gentle dogs. I like all to be honest, to me, a puppy is a puppy.

    My Mia (we got her at 7 months)is 5 generation pedigree, from champion hunting and show stock, she has barely any teeth, and was really sick when we got her.
    Bailey (we got him at 8 weeks)was an add in the paper, and other than the normal worms, was super healthy.

    Enjoy him (Mia is my first female dog, ever) I'm sure he will bring much joy to your home as well as exercise!

    Your other Mastiff, beautiful, er... Handsome!

    How can you pick just ONE.

    If you're interested in showing dogs, I recommend you check out your local 4-H clubs. I was in a 4-H dog club as a kid with my Dalmatian. 4-H is a great way for kids to get really involved with their animals (and starting with a fresh new puppy would make it that much more exciting).

    Adorable! My friend with the male English Mastiff, just bought a baby girl brindle - she is so adorable. I think it's awesome you are getting a puppy and getting so excited.
    Puppy love could get anyone out of a funk. Enjoy your new furbaby.
    Wish I could bring on another buddy for Brawley, but for now, he's an only child. ;)
    Best wishes to you and the family with your new addition.
