Located in a small seaside town on Cape Cod, we are home to five fantastic mastiffs; two schnauzerific miniature schnauzers (Seri ,aka "Pikachu", and Norma Jean); three kitties, and seven backyard chickens.
On December 6, 2007 we lost our "Owen" , after having had 11 years with him by our side.
It is in Owen's memory that we picked the name "Owenspride", for the dogs we have bred to carry on with.
My husband, Ron, and I have been students of the breed for 19 years; two years prior to our purchase of Owen (CH. Brookside's Worth the Weight CGC). We have produced two litters; having spent 10 years in preparation for our first litter; developing an understanding of the Standard as well as forging relationships and mentorships with people who are ardent and knowledgable fanciers and producers of great mastiffs.
Our dogs live in the home with us; sleep in the bedroom if not the bed with us ( not in crates, except for housetraining the puppies of course!); they are with us in the yard while we garden and tend to the koi pond; they enjoy long walks in Nickerson State Park and on the beaches when it isn't tourist season. They receive excellent veterinary care both at the clinic where I am a technician, and at various referral and emergency hospitals as needed. No expense is ever spared for any of our animals' health needs.
We enjoy showing our dogs in conformation and Rally; and I aspire to show them in regular Obedience as well. We love laying around the house, loving them. We enjoy everything about them! Yes, even the drool.....ESPECIALLY the drool.
We hope that you enjoy browsing through our site and seeing our family of pets. They are dear to us!
