    Went for our usual tea time walk...
    I didn't take my camera (looked like t might rain)
    GUTTED!
    We met max the dogue de bordeaux! He was SOOOOOO beautiful i fell in love with him, its about the only time Odin has ever looked small!! And he was very shy!! Which is unlike him!!

    Any DDB owners about?
    I'm curious now, would like to know more about them?
    :)

    Dogue de bordeaux are on our wishlist :D OH has loved them for about 5/6 years whereas i've only been interested for about a year(i didn't like the look of them). What changed my mind was a man in PAH with a 15 week old DDB puppy :blush: what a beauty and he was happy to stand and chat to me about the breed(this was his 3rd one) while i sat on the floor cuddling this huge puppy :eek: i've been readin up and they're definately a breed i'd like and if it stops the OH from wanting a neopolitan mastiff so badly then i'll live with it(i don't have anything against the breed....i just think they are far too wrinkly and huge for little 5'6" me) :001_tongue:

    no, we where going to get one, but after serious thinking I decided that I dont think I could cope with the drool :D

    do they drool as much as I think they do? Oh nd we had a name picked out and everything.... ODIN! :D:D love that name. good choice.

    They seem to be a mix in terms of health and temprament, even in the same litters. The are overbred now, so there is a lot of them out there and there's a lot of variation in type and quality. Drooling depends upon size of head really, but it can be a massive problem, they also seem to moult a lot for a short haired dog. Not a breed I would recommend for the novice owner, which is a mistake I made.

    I heard they were bad for moulting a lot :blush: my OH wanted one for our first dog together(he grew up with spaniels and a GSDX, i grew up around labs, collies and mutts) but i put my foot down as it was too big....possibly i knew deep down it wasn't a good beginners breed, then again i did go for a ridgeback cross so maybe it was just the size :001_tongue:
