January 2010

Fireside Mastiffs would love to introduce to you 8 new babies. They were born on December 22nd. Cricket and Bozo are the proud parents.  This was not a planned litter.  Bozo planned it for us.  He is quite powerful (he dug a 2 foot hole in gravel with a thick metal mesh burried at 8 inches), is limber (fit under a chain link fence which has a 3 foot deep retaining wall behind it,  which only gave him a 10 inch openning to squeeze his huge body through) and speedy (he did all this and got the job done in 15 minutes). The puppy we keep will have to have a name  to reflect these qualities. Here they are at 11 day.
