Our big baby dogs Cane Corso (Italian Mastiffs) love to play. A few weeks ago, as I was outside taking care of the other animals…the girls tore up their pillows. Usually, one of them rips a cushion, and then there is one cushion for the two of them. Instead of going out to purchase yet another cushion there are usually a couple of weeks between the one destroyed and a new one. Here is the guilty party walking away from questioning about the pillow.

We have completely stereotyped our dogs. We have two Italian Mastiffs (Cane Corso). We just love them to pieces. They are funny dogs. They utilized my saucers for the potted plants as sleds. Since the saucers were the terra cotta saucers they broke after the sled ride was over. The two of them are sisters, and they play tag and with their toys until they are exhausted. During dinner time, the two of them rest near our table waiting for my husband to offer them something. The more muscular one is Sheba (not pictured). We imagine that she colors with a blue crayon. Not knowing how to spell, and having her sister Sadie explain things to her all the time, as she rolls her eyes.
As we have dinner we even add voices. Sadie has an accent that is British, and she is an intellectual. She types at night, and post on her blog about her crazy Italian family. Writes about the fun she had playing in the yard, what kind of people hung out at the park, and what strange animals she saw at the ranch. Sadie has one crooked nail on her right paw, and that is what we refer to as her delete nail. She has used it so many times it is a little crooked.
Sadie has such great expressions on her face. She has these soft loving eyes, and Sheba has more play, play, play eyes. Sheba will sometimes PUSH Sadie into playing when Sadie doesn’t feel like playing. Sheba will buck like a horse around in circles in front of Sadie, and Sadie will huff at her like she is annoyed. Sadie always gives into Sheba’s will to play. Sadie waits quietly for dinner to end, but as soon as Sheba thinks dinner is coming to a close she will rest her chin on the table by my husband. He is the one that will give scraps to the dogs.
Sadie on the other hand goes to my son, and moves his arm to go around her like he is giving her a side hug. She is very forceful about it too. It is almost like she is at the table for love, not food.
She could almost be “grumpy dog”. Be careful or you will end up in her blog. LOL
Do you talk to your dog? This is Sheba one of the two Italian Mastiffs we own. They are more like family to us. They would rather be inside with us, than outside in the fresh air. Sheba like to “talk” to me. I ask her a question and she forms her mouth like she is trying to do the very best to talk. She has cherry eyes. We have had 2 surgeries for her eyes. The doctor told us that if tried one last time she would not be able to make tears naturally, and would be prone to eye infections that may cause her to go blind. We love her just that way she is.
