    Bobi the 30 y.o. portuguese mastiff (cross)

    Hi It recently hit the news that there is a dog in central Portugal called Bobi that is closing to 31 years old and is officially the (confirmed) oldest dog that ever lived. They say it is a Portuguese Mastiff (aka "rafeiro do alentejo") but it doesn´t look like a purebred (most llikely a...

    That is actually Fava´s bed, but she rarely uses it (the couch is much better). Took them for a walk. Paloma is doing better with the lead. Living in a farm I hardly ever use a lead, but they still need to practice (mostly Paloma).

    Paloma, arlequin GD

    Thank you all for the nice comments. @Big Gus, I actually never took care of her nails. We live in a farm and she is constantly out and about and weares them out by herself. Here are three more (sequencial) pics I took yesterday: 1st she moved to Lomu´s bed (it was too hot for the couch), then...

    When should I stop feeding my English Mastiff puppy food?

    My bullmastiff is exactly the same. I feed Royal Canin Anallergenic and it works very well. It has been THE solution for its problems

    On a personal view, I do not advocate cropping (please note that I do not want to initiate a discussion on that) and as regards boerboels they never have their ears cropped.

    Paloma, arlequin GD

    Hi Paloma is 3 months today ! Entering that phase when she tries to test the waters within the pack (and with us). She has ben scolded by the older dogs (as expected) but she is stubborn... Only backs down when they "raise their voice". Seems she is going to be handful in the next couple of...

    Paloma, arlequin GD

    Quick update after gpong to the vet to take the final shots: all is normal and weights 14,650 kgs (32,29 lbs). She is just 5 days shy of 3 months, so probably will gain another kg (or 2+lbs) in these 5 days. So, normal growth and within the parameters

    Need advice please.

    Hi Sometimes they just don´t want to eat the dry food, especially if they also get other types of food. So, maybe you can use the wet food as a topping and mix it up with the dry food, so it becomes "scented" (don´t know if this is the proper word). With luck, he will take it all Another thing...

    Neo skin issues

    I believe you should have your Neo tested for food allergies. In the past I had a similar problem with my bullmastiff. bad coat, smell, bumps on skin, etc. We had him extensively tested and found out he is allergic to ...well... almost everything being very allergic to chicken, lamb, tuna and...
