Dog of the Day: Louis the Italian Mastiff
It’s spelled Louis, and pronounced Louie. You know, like French. Except that he’s an Italian mastiff, not a French mastiff, so what’s up with that?
Well, anyway, as you can probably tell from the photos, he’s just as sweet as any mastiff, and calm in a crowd, too.
He was so mellow that it took a while for him to figure out that I was paying attention to him.
Such a sweet face. So concerned-looking. I think it's the furrowed brow.
Louis and his dad. I'm pretty sure he was a visitor to San Francisco.
Can't remember what the minor scar is on his flank. Seem to recall it was nothing to worry about though.
Awww. For a big dog, he sure does have the 'puppydog eyes' down pat.
