Bringing Home the Mastiff Puppy
Well, Husband Bob is extremely bold to take on this dog. She–Aura–is a sweet soft, though rather large, mastiff puppy now. She’ll become a 140 pound animal, a Boerboel, bred as a guard dog. Already, at about four months old, she’s over sixty pounds and hyperalert.
Bob likes big, challenging dogs from faraway places. He already has a Kangal dog, Kaya, a Turkish mastiff-type, a strong-willed fellow who outweighs me.
Last night, little Aura met big Kaya for the first time. The puppy rushed up to the big guy. Kaya, on a leash, stayed cool but had a fiercely interested look in his eye. Aura (gutsy puppy) would back off a little but then dash forward again. I think we’re all going to get along fine. In the meantime, it’s quite a household adventure.
