Mack will be 10 in June an old boy in the Mastiff world. He was in a bad way this time last year but has come right again and is now as mischievous as ever. Mack is never left unsupervised as trouble of some sort is always nearby. It's not that he's a bad dog its just that for some reason opportunities for mischief always arise and he needs his dad for guidance - Don't eat that duck Mack, Don't eat that goose Mack, Don't eat that kids ice cream Mack, Don't bite that bike tyre Mack, You are not allowed to chomp that cat Mack, Hey don't cock your leg on that ladies pram Mack.
We could go on but will run out of page.
Hmm - I'm having trouble concentrating on the camera
If I turn my head this way a bit I won't see that sheep just behind the fence.
Its no good every time a see a sheep I think of well.... There's thousands of years of genetic DNA in a Mastiff you know
I will have to sit down and look the other way
Thats no good - Ill have to look the other way
Ahh,,, but I can smell them
They must be down wind
Maybe they won't notice if I just have a little nip?
This is a dilemma - If I have a little nip I won't be able to stop and My dads not home...
I have ribbons for obedience you know.....
but I have trouble hearing when the others ask me not to do things.
Ahh... but my dad always defends me no matter what - Like the time I dug through the wall in the house... He just said "There must have been a rat in the wall you know"
