I have to apologize to anyone who might have still check in on this blog to see what is new with Bluebonnet Mastiffs. At some point, our web hosting company switched formats and our site didn't load correctly anymore. I should have been more diligent and determined in working on getting the site updated, but I missed the boat. Hopefully, along with this updated blog, you will see an updated site. I still have some work to do to it, some pictures to add, but I hope it l...Read Full Post »

We are beyond excited to have ten new little mastiff babies in the house! On January 21st, we welcomed six females and four males - all fawn. Mollie and babies are all doing well.
We took Mollie in on her due date for the requisite progesterone test to see if delivery was imminent. Phil went to run errands after the lab draw and we were both a little surprised that her progesterone had dropped so low, indicating that she was in, or going to be in labor, at any minute.&...Read Full Post »

Although my last post was a sad one and quite a while ago, the wait has been worth it. We are excited to let the proverbial "cat out of the bag." Mollie and McGee are expecting babies January 21st!
Phil and I spent a great deal of time soul searching, trying to decide what was best for Mollie. Although we would have been sad not to have another litter of puppies with her, what was paramount to us was what would be best for Mollie. As she be...Read Full Post »

It has taken me a while to get around to posting this update. Not because I have been busy, as I had hoped I would be, but because the news is painful. Two days after five beautiful babies - two boys and three girls - were born, they began to struggle. Over the course of approximately 40 hours, we lost them one by one.
We did everything possible to try and turn each baby's downward spiral around. With the help of four veterinarians and many of our cl...Read Full Post »

(Deep Breath!) I don't know about anyone else, but I am thrilled that Spring is here. It has been a challenging winter for many of us across the country. I moved 900+ miles five years ago just to get away from the cold and snow, so, the warmer temperatures are right up my alley.
With Spring come babies - all kinds of babies. We are excited to be contemplating the birth of some new Bluebonnet Mastiff babies in mid-June. Mollie was bred this past week ...Read Full Post »

For anyone who has been dedicated and checked in now and again for updates, I apologize. This last year has been incredibly hectic with raising the puppies and then planning a move. Now, we are finally in the new house (although still a bit unsettled) and will find more opportunities to keep up with our webpage.
The last year has been very eventful. We have shown Mollie as a special when the opportunity presented and with limited showings. Mollie and Marty...Read Full Post »

The babies - ALL 12 OF THEM - arrived Friday afternoon around 4:00 p.m. We would have preferred to wait until Saturday, Mollie's original due date, but had evidence that some of the puppies were under stress and dropping their heart rates. So, in the interest of the babies' safety, we went ahead and performed a cesarean section. All of the babies were vigorous and healthy at delivery.
Today, everyone is doing well (if you don't count in my sleep deprivation). The...Read Full Post »

Friends! It is quickly becoming time for us to plan our next breeding. Our beautiful Mollie is finally of age and with her incredible temperament, we feel we can produce puppies that will represent the breed in it's most positive light and will bring that special kind of love to many families.
We have a planned breeding scheduled soon. However, we are a bit superstitious, and therefore, have chosen to keep our matchmaking plans confidential. W...Read Full Post »

Anyone for an update? Actually, data-wise, there's just a little in the way of news. We are incredibly proud of Mollie. Just as she finished her Championship in July at the Dallas shows, she also finished her Grand Championship in a sweeping and decisive way over the three days she showed at the shows in Chickasha the weekend before Thanksgiving. With three straight majors, Mollie completed her Grand Championship and added some points to her total. Her journey fr...Read Full Post »
