Yesterday I added to my family. I added Max and Iokie, they are English Mastiff puppies, currently they are 5 weeks old. I am not sure how much they weigh right now, but as you can tell by the picture of my daughter and max, they are not your average ankle biters. I think the Daddy weighed in at 257 lbs and I am not sure about the mother, the picture I got she looked like she was in the 200 lb range. My wife took my Niece, my daughter, and my 2 granddaughters to pick them out. My smallest granddaughter got mad because we only got 2 and not 3. So I explained to my granddaughter like this, she owns 1/3 dog of each of them, so altogether she has 2/3's of a dog, that is alot better than 1/2 of a dog, that is almost a whole dog. I think she was ok with it. I know people on here are crazy about their animals, and they pamper them, these dogs will be spoiled rotten. They will be house dogs. Like I told my wife, no one in their right mind will break into our house. 500 lbs of dogs, kind of deters that. These dogs are the first dogs we have aquired ourselves in almost 15 years, the others have been cast offs, from other family members.
