    It's been some time since I've posted on here and it's with real sadness that I'm back, as I start to look for another dog, but it's a feeling I'm sure most of us know only too well. The passing of one pooch leaves a hole, for humans and dogs alike so here I am again, looking for a new companion.
    Given that Lexi is now a real lump of a dog (she's literally twice the dog I rescued 2 years ago) but still so puppy like in terms of energy I need a dog that can cope with presa play time.
    I'd prefer to go with another molosser, seems logical to me, but the other half wants a smaller dog, or a husky, or a northern inuit (thanks GoT) or a..........
    I've tried putting forward the logic, same dietary needs, exercise, temperament, play style etc but she's more swayed by looks and sob story write ups on rescue pages.
    Someone help me out with some un-arguable reasons to stick to a molosser please ;)

    Unfortunately, in there are no "un-arguable reasons" in a discussion with the other half.
    But rough play and exercise needs are the most valid reasons

    Since logic does not work... find the cutest puppy pictures you can of mollaser breeds you like! Better yet take your other half to see one that is available... that is how you win that battle. :)

    My husband turned into a mush melon when I took him to see Bailey's litter mates. A pile of 15 squirming, sleepy, doe-eyed puppies charmed his pants off and his no dog dictum was sunk, especially when one of Bailey's sisters curled up in the crook of his arm, looked up adoringly into his eyes and gave his face a tiny, perfect, heart-melting lick. He was putty in her paws, and even though we didn't get that particular pup, he is enslaved by our beautiful Bailey. I call him Daddy dog and Bailey is his baby girl.

    A pile of squirming puppies will win the day, even if your wife doesn't understand the necessity of like temperment, like physical and nutrition needs and possible safety issues...smaller dog could get hurt. An armful of puppy will bring out her maternal nature and she, too, will be enslaved by puppy love. Of course, puppy may take over your bed...ours did!

    We kept our eyes open at petfinder for a mastiff mix... they do come up... then you get to "rescue" a puppy , and probably get a mini-mastiff, depending on what it's mixed with. Win-win??

    Denna's not from a rescue... we were completely dogless, so we had no patience after the first litter of mastiff x saints fell through (all gone before we could make contact).
