    Hi guys,

    I've been nosing around and have seen most peoples other pets and birds so just thought I'd pop some pics on of our other furry babies!  These are our 3 south african mastiffs / Boerboels, the best dogs in the world!

     

    Sahara 20 months, Mona 12 months and Lunar 12 months xxxxxx

    Lunar and Mona having a chin wag in the garden!

    Me and my special girl Sahara have a very special bond xxx

    This is me and my boy Hiro, he's a talking cat and is best friends with Sahara

    Hi Victoria,

    Thanks they are very beautiful dogs and Sahara has a very beautiful energy about her doesn't she? Yes they do drool but not as much as you'd think. They tend to only drool when they drink or are waiting for food or are excited and playing, they don't shake and drool flies everywhere or anything like that! Lol.

    Thanks guys! Alot of people say that they have such expressive faces. They are such a great breed. Challenging to own as pups if you have more than one as they are so strong willed and realy intelligent but they keep us on our toes and they are so loyal an intuitive it's unbelievable!

    Beautiful dogs, they each look so different.
    Hiro looks huge for a cat too, we had a tiny little thin black cat but Hiro looks massive, his eyes are very pretty.
    Our cat loved our dogs too, in fact, she belonged to nextdoor but moved in with our dogs!

    It's funny Scarlett because I thought the same he does look like a big old cat in that pic! But he's truly not. He's tiny and so small and skinny he looks like a sphynx cat! He's a terror because he's so playful and gets into everything.

    How funny cats are they are so different from dogs, completely independant!

    beautiful dogs - we have a rescue shar pei and his buddy is 2yr old ddbxneopolitan mastif - she's 10 stone now and feeling the heat a bit.
    Out of the 2 she is the gentle one and when Rocky our alexandrine goes outside in his cage we often find her nose pressed up to it waiting for attention.
    Must say I find it hard sometimes stepping over her or avoiding her in the hallway so dont know how you manage with 3 bigguns.

    Awww Nicky, I am very sorry to hear that you lost such a long time companion. That is very sad. Hopefully one day the pain will ease a bit and you may be able to look at other dogs in the same way again. Big hugs!

    In answer to your question yes they all play together, they are currently all outside in the garden playing ball together. They share everything, toys, beds, apart from food obviously. And yes at times they can be a handful but the trick is to expect respect as the pack leader when raising any large breed of dog. I never step over my dogs if they are lying in my path, I wake them up and tell them to move! That is how they treat each other in the pack and would in the wild so we use the same psychology and pack mentality and we have full control over our girls because of it. We don't have a problem with jealousy, aggression, biting, etc. because everybody knows their place. Of course this comes after lots of hardwork, socialising them, taking time to train them, lots of repitition but you get there in the end which is the most important thing.

    They all absolutely love our new addition Jack who's a CAG, he calls them and whistles them over then throws his seed and food at them which they for some reason like to hoover up off the floor. When he's sitting on his perch outside his cage he is only a few inches above their heads and they walk over to him and he talks to them and they just look at him and have a sniff of him, if he feels they are being too intrusive he says NOW NO BITING and then he'll go to nip their nose which freaks them out but they don't forget and so Jack stays firmly in control! It is quite hilarious because they look at him with utter confusion, like "YOU ARE A BIRD BUT YOU SOUND LIKE MUM!" It's so funny because he tells them to get outside, and shouts their names when they bark and laughs hysterically at them when they are play fighting indoors. It's fun times in my house!
