Mary, I’m a friend of Ms. Lauletta’s and just love your stories. I forward them to my husband and we both get a giggle. You write with such a passion.
We were both saddened with the loss of Bentley. I was mad at Kim for making me cry at work. Thank you for sharing the good and the bad. Hope you dont mind that I check in for updates to see how Nala and Micah are doing.
I’m a fan!

Thank you very much! Check in often for more on The Great Puppy Hunt of 2011. It was an grand adventure! I only have a it started, but I wanted everyone to meet Micah. Thank you, too for your sentiments on our loss of Bentley. Always in our hearts. Wags!

I love your writings so much and truly enjoy all of your experiences with your mastiffs. It makes us laugh and cry at the same time. So very sorry about your beloved Bentley. We can relate to your grief since our first boy, Cody (247 pounds and such a loverboy) died on 22 July of this year, too. Grieving is so painful ….we do have his half-sister, Magnolia, who is five years old and very lonely. We anticipate a puppy at Christmastme to help heal our bleeding hearts. A boy.
Thank you again for your wonderful treasure….a gift of words.

Mary, I have to admit that this is the first time I have been on your site. I don’t spend much time on the computer at home since I do nothing but (it seems) at work all day. But, I just read “How To Disable a Biped.” Hilarious! And what a good sport your Rick is. Just an unbelievable experience and such a talented chronicle of the events. Thank you! Now I can’t wait to read everything you written.

Hi Mary, I am not sure if you check this page any more or not, but we are a family with two adopted children who have a background of trauma, and we are trying to adopt a mastiff mix and train it to help them. I’d love any advice or guidance that you could offer on this journey. Thanks!

Not sure where you’re located, but I would be happy to answer any questions you have on training, or help you if you are local. What is the mix of your dog? English Mastiffs have the proper temperament for a therapy dog (gentle giant), but often a mix will bring out the traits of the other breed; i.e. bullmastiffs can be hyper and aggressive as a bulldog as well as having the health issues in their gastric and respiratory systems. Hopefully the mastiff has lent itself to rise in the temperament of your dog. We are very selective when getting a mastiff and look for TD in their pedigree, health testing and pure genetics. We’ve had six altogether. We just lost Micah 4 weeks ago. He was a legendary therapy dog. How old is your dog? Do you have a POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT trainer?
