A Gryphon Mastiffs Update - October 2013

I absolutely cannot even fathom where the last year has gone.  We have had a very busy spring and summer.  I haven’t had a ton of computer time, so I’m trying to get back in the swing of things and get everyone updated.  The good news is that everyone is happy, healthy, drooly, and doing well.  The bad news is that the breeding we tried to do with Brinkley in July didn’t take (we’re blaming fedex for that one, but that’s another story for another time).  The good news is that nearly all my ‘puppy people’ are/were dedicated enough to understand and are willing to wait until the next go ‘round for a puppy.  I expect Brinkley to come into season in January or the first part of February, puppies 2 months later (April) and going to new homes 8-9 weeks after that (June).  I actually think this might have been a blessing in disguise because I will be so much less busy at work and won’t have to stress about missing so many weeks of it.

In the meantime, Mr. Wally (hopfully soon to be puppy daddy) has been tearing up the show ring here in the states.  He now has numerous group placements, a BISS (Best in Show Special at a Mastiff specialty show) and is currently the #5 Mastiff in the USA.  I expect with that last win that he will bump up to #4 for sure, and probably knock out #3 as well.  He’s pretty much an awesome dude. He also earned his TT title (Temperament Test) while here in the US. I have no doubt that he and Brinkley will make AMAZING babies together.  I’m so excited (can you tell). It’s going to be a great winter, looking forward to getting outside with the pups more, and next spring will hopefully by filled with drooly fur balls all over my house.

If I have lost touch with anyone or anyone wants to chat or has any questions for me drop me a line.  You can email me at or on facebook (, or if you want to chat on the phone message me for my cell number.  I would love to hear from each and every one of you and know how your summers are going.  I posted some pictures of the pups below for everyone to enjoy!
