    We named our boy Mater after the tow truck in Cars, our sons favourite character. We got a male because i have a preference for them. I think we will get a female in a couple of years if we move to a bigger property. He is an inside dog when we are home and outside when we go out.
    He drinks a lot of water which means he pees a lot, inside. A LOT!!! He is getting better though and we don't have carpet so it's manageable.
    It was hard when we first got him he would jump up in the kids but it didn't last long. We have also included the kids right from the start in looking after him. They feed him, water him, help walk him and I send them outside to play ball with him.

    Mater! That's so cute !!DS is obsessed with Cars so don't be surprised if in a few weeks I send you a picture of a dog called Lightning or Sally!
    What do you feed him - I'm just looking into this now - the breeder recommends a raw meat diet
    Is he easy to train and does he stay close or wander off if you are out?

    We have him on Advance for large breed puppies. We feed him the recommended amount and then he gets treats throughout the week of raw bones and raw off cuts of meat I cut up. Our breeder told us to not feed him pork. I'll also put a raw egg cracked with shell for him once or twice a week when I remember.
    Walking and running on the lead he has picked up really quickly. My DH takes him some nights to a football oval and lets him off, he has a flashing light we can turn on on his collar, and he is really good with following him. I'm usually running with him at busy times so don't have the confidence to let him off yet as he is easily distracted.

    He was also extremely nippy at us including the kids for the first month we had him and his teeth hurt. That has passed and he has calmed down immensely since we have been able to walk him after getting all his needles.

    She has just had her last lot of injections so we will be able to take her for walks soon, have been practicing around the yard so she knows who is in charge
    Will take some pics later and share, she has grown loads since we got her.

    It's so much fun with the kids. What colour is your girl? I wonder if our puppies are related!
    Is Tana inside or outside?
    How big were you told she would be?

    Our Rotti was a mummy's boy and our new baby seems to be the same. They know who the boss is!

    Just had our first hurdle with owning our boy. Phoned the kennels where our last dog used to go and they don't take all types of dogs including mastiffs.
    I love this kennel, all the dogs are out playing with friends during the day and go into their pen for dinner and bed.
    Have know idea what we are going to do
