Thanks Stacey.
Anyone who has known mastiffs knows their sweetness.

She is not nearly as big as an "American Mastiff", which is basically a mixed Mastiff (used to be called English Mastiff) if I'm correct. My girl barely meets breed standard at 23-1/2" and 94 lbs, but more normal would be an inch or two taller and 15 lbs heavier, though never fat like you see most show dogs.

I would love to have a mastiff. We almost had a chance to get one about a year ago.

Mastiff breeds are cool because they are low energy and were developed to work with people, so they bond very well.

Shhh, don't let my shepherd or ridgeback hear me say that

Who would want a big dog, when you can have cute little dogs?!??

The poodle is my baby, his name is Sammy. I have tons and tons and tons of pictures of him... but i'll just post 2 of them

The palmeranian is new to our family. His name is Prince.

I once contemplated getting a Bullmastiff, but not now. The landlord's insuranse might go up once his insurer finds out.

Now if I could just get a Bulldog.

lol, Sammy actually just consumed an entire tube of chapstick while I was outside talking to a neighbor. Not only is he in trouble, but he can't be feeling very well!!

My husband was originaly wanting a bulldog when we were looking for a second dog... We got a Palmeranian instead..

What's worse, is when we were FIRST looking for a dog, my husband was wanting a Boxer... and we got a Toy Poodle instead....

I just think that's halarious.

Is that a bark collar on the Pomeranian (Palmeranian)?
It looks different....

No that's just a brand new collar we had bought him. We had to make it go as small as it could so it'd fit him, that's why it's kind of sticking out.

Is a bark collar that thing that shocks them when they bark too loud?
