I guy asked me if he could breed Kenya with his pit bull a while ago. Rough Collie/pit bull crosses? What would that look like? :eek:

After I tell people about Emmas OCD, they jokingly say she should be on prozac. Then they can't believe it when I say she was.

Not exactly a question - just an encounter that left me a little flabbergasted.

I had just finished jogging on a local trail with my Springer - the late, great Sherman. I was cooling down and stretching at the trail head & heard someone say "You should muzzle that damn dog." I looked up to see a 20-something kid gothed out all in black (complete with trench coat in the middle of freaking July), with greasy hair and multiple tats & piercings.

"What's the problem?" I asked.

"Well, look at him!"

Sherman had caught & killed a field mouse.

"Yeah, he's a pretty good mouser."

"That mouse deserved to live just as much as that damn dog!"

I was so dumbstruck that all I could do was laugh. Goth Boy turned red and continued up the trail in a huff. Entertainment - it's everywhere!

Presa confusion

I get irked when people see my Presa and say " Wow, he look just like a mastiff" All I want to say is "Hey dumbass! He looks nothing like a mastiff because they are two completely different breeds"

Everything I've ever read says it's bred from mastiff, and is a mossler, and thus they call it a mastiff. Kinda like how I have a dogue De Bordeaux but it's a French mastiff. Just like yours is called a Canary mastiff. And how a tibetian mastiff looks nothing like a Bordeaux or English mastiff

I've never gotten any weird questions about Bear, except that people have been referring to him as "old fella" since he was a year old because his muzzle is white.

People keeping asking me if I'm going to "do" Mozart's tail and ears. Someday, someone with a baby is going to ask me and I'm going to turn right around and ask them if they're going to get their kid a nose job. Maybe then they'll understand why I act so insulted.

I will admit that when I see a dog with a white/Grey muzzle I think they are old..I am guilty!

Oops! That should have read molosser is a type ...

All mastiffs are molossers but not all molossers are mastiffs...?. Lol
Correct : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molosser

The bulldog breeds are molossers, as are Rotties, St Bernards...... As a general rule however Cane Corsos and Presa's are considered to be a type of 'mastiff' as its generally understood by the public.

Correct : Molosser - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

LOL. when i was trying to figure out the breeds in our mutt I came across numerous sites about the molosser type of dog..I couldn't help following a few rabbit hole links and i was surprised that there was so much "controversy " and up in the air breed associations to the type. It seems that just plain Mastiff isn't even a single breed as lots of different breeds fall under that category. But the AKC does list Mastiff as a breed...I wondered if they meant American Mastiff or not...? They are usually so damn precise and picky about standards..I guess i just didn't expect that there would be so much uncertainty about it considering the original molosser breeds are so ancient. I supose that's where the "general public " comes in to muff it up. LOL

Whatever the case... as part of the ignorant general public, i think a presa does look a lot like a brindled American mastiff. I guess I'm odd. :p:D
