Just a Few Uses of an English Mastiff

I came in the living room the other evening and found our oldest son studying for finals. Apparently Missy was either a coffee table or a foot stool. I'll let you be the judge of that!
Later that evening I came back into the living room. This time she and the older son were still "studying" for finals. Jacob decided to use her back end as a pillow so he could warm his feet by the fire. Missy laid there forever that evening enjoying all the attention given to her by the boys. See...every body needs an English Mastiff. They take the place of a coffee table and pillows!
grace and peace,

Yes, Leah, any attention at all will fill her cup full! That is one of the special things about mastiffs!

Driving 3 Prince Girls,
Me too!!!

Carmen,
Considering all the money we have spent to replace the items that she has chewed over the last four years, I don't know that we are coming out good financially!

Sharon,
You make a very good point indeed! Apparently she wasn't too smelly that evening!
