It's been a month now since we lost our precious Jake. The emptiness in our hearts and our home is unbearable at times, but we have come to terms with our decision to do what was best for him and every day it gets a little easier. While we are nowhere near ready for a new puppy we know that within the next year to year and a half we will be ready. So we have reached out to a bullmastiff breeder who is looking to have puppies ready next November. She is going to be at a dog show about 3 hours from us on the weekend with a couple of other bullmastiff breeders so we are going for a drive to meet her and these other breeders and start developing a relationship with them so that when we are ready for a new baby we can be at the top of their list to get one.
