Dog of the Day: English Mastiff

Oh lordy. This fine fellow was tied to the next parking meter over from yesterday’s pup, but the two were ignoring one another. I was definitely unable to ignore either of them, but I must admit, this guy got the lion’s share of the attention.

I assure you, however big he looks in the pictures, he looks even bigger in person.

      He was simply amazing. Such a sweetheart! Also the least drooly English mastiff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

    Swiss Family Robinson! That is where I first learned about English Mastiffs. I’ve been in love with them ever since!! Talk about gentle giants!!
