Mack the Mastiff 17/6/2005 - 18/3/2016






Mack the Mastiff peacefully died this afternoon, at home in his sleep.
He was nearly 12 years old which is old for a Mastiff.


This is one of the last photos of Mack taken last night hanging out in the barn with the blokes

    1. He was a good old fella, in my point of view more as he got older but as a young dog he was NAUGHTY! Love your comment Job well done.

  3. Oh gosh Leanne, I am sooo sorry to read this. I enjoyed seeing dear Mack pop up on your blog from time to time. He was a very good age then ... my son lost his female mastiff at just under 9 years old. Just remember what a wonderful life he had with you all ... he will leave a big gap for quite sometime. Thinking of you all x x

    1. He was a tad puffy in the morning I booked in a vet visit for Saturday, not overly worried as he has been sicker than that in the past. He was perky and couldn't (or wouldn't) hear me when walking around the section with me in the morning - very interested in the chickens and I am sure if one was out he would have tried to get it. He was happy wagging, well thumping his tail on the deck and lay down for his nap and that was it. Couldn't ask for a better way to go really.

    3. Yea good way to go aye, He had his last ride in the truck with the boys to the vets to be cremated, where Brent even put him in the body bag. He was well loved and looked after till the end.

  12. So sorry to hear about Mac. It's hard to lose a good friend like him. But you can be consoled by remembering that he had a good long run and was lucky enough to live with good folks like you.

    1. Hi Jean, lovely to see you here, i've missed your comments, My computer time is so limited these days I'll have to pop into your blog. Seems really weird without him. We had quite the routine going me and Mack. for eg he had to get 3 biscuits in the morning and if I didn't her would bark until I gave him 3 - not 2.
