She is such a good girl. She is just a big giant angel with four legs. She is so funny and still awkward on her long legs. The look on her face sometimes just amazes me. It's so funny to say but you can read every emotion on her face. She makes my heart smile.
Udo gets along great with the kids and great with the other dogs. Its a good thing he is a big mush because he spends a lot of time on everyone's lap. He seems to be very easy to train as well. People stop us all the time and question us about what he is and can't believe what a great dog he is. We're thinking we may not be able to stop at one. You may be hearing from us again! We love him very much and are really glad we added him to our family. Thanks for bringing such a wonderful friend into our lives.
Tilly is doing great and adjusting to our home and life very well. We enjoy every day with her. She definitely keeps us busy day and night, and it's great. We are so glad that we found your kennel,and so glad To have Tilly as a part of our family.
Update -- 8/07 The runt of the litter has grown up and is a beautiful big girl (145 lbs @ 18 months). We often comment she is the best dog we have ever owned. Such a laid back personality and very gentle. The spot in the garden is her favorite - she likes to sit there and oversee the property. What a wonderful dog. We still look forward to adding another mastiff to our family some day.
Atlas is WONDERFUL!!! He loves the kids but I have become his favorite and he follows me all around the house. I took him for his first obedience lesson last week. The trainer trains the police and search and rescue dogs. He was very impressed with him.
Boo is so great with our son Jack (3.5) and his friends, we are continually amazed. He is only 6 months old right now but he weighs 97 pounds. He is a big cuddly baby. He has never once showed even an ounce of aggression towards another animal or people. We have a cat and he loves her even though she terrorizes him. He has such a soft mouth you can't believe it. My parents visited for the holidays and my dad was amazed that Boo was carrying around a paper towel tube and he wasn't even crushing it. Boo and Jack like to run through the house and then jump into a bean bag (Boo's downstairs bed) and Boo, even in all his excitement, is always careful not to hurt Jack. They are great playmates. Boo loves everyone he meets. He really is the happiest most loving animal I have ever met. I HIGHLY recommend this breed with children.
Update 7/07 - Wanted to email you to let you know how much we love Boo. Jack is so attached to him I cannot remember what it was like before we had him. He is huge (187 lbs) but the sweetest most laid back dog I every met. (Jack has a new sister Charlotte. See the pics of Charlotte and Boo)
Ruby has been a wonderful addition to our family. There is no better feeling than coming home and having Ruby joyously greet you at the door. She is a constant companion-always willing to play, to go for a walk, or to cuddle up beside you on the couch with her head in your lap. She has enormous personality and keeps us laughing every day at her antics. It's impossible to stay in a bad mood with Ruby around! People constantly approach us to ask about her and to comment on how pretty she is, and we have to agree. We can't imagine how dull life would be without our Ruby. Thank you for breeding such fantastic dogs.
The Sokolowski Family.
Diesel has been a wonderful dog. She has a great personality and is always gentle and patient with the kids. I think Diesel believes she is a lap dog; she loves to cuddle and be in your company. She is always getting compliments on her good behavior and her good looks too! Diesel is so well behaved my husband wants another Mastiff. She seems to have stopped growing @ 110 lbs, but she is a great size for me!
Kira is truly the sweetest, most loving dog that we have ever had. She is a wonderful addition to our family which also includes our Gold Retriever, "Harley". Harley and Kira are best friends, playing together during the day and sleeping side by side at night. Kira likes everyone she meets and everyone loves her. She loves to give us kisses and is so gentle with our Grandchildren when they come over that there is never a worry. She has way of looking at you that makes your heart melt and the term "Gentle Giant" truly fits her. We are now totally in love with this breed and want another. We've seen firsthand that at Hidden Acres each puppy gets handled with love right from the start and it shows. Thank you both, Alan and Diane, for giving us the chance to get such a special girl.
Wanted to share pictures of Phoenix on her first birthday. She is such a important part of our family & and we are so thankful for her in our home -- and thankful to you for introducing her to us. She is the ultimate playmate, companion, little friend and guardian. We just love her to pieces.
