Yeah I just have an average house 1400 SQ feet and the yard isn't huge but barely big enough.

Unfortunately since they are purebreeds the wife insists on buying premium dogfood. Its 30 dollars for a 20pound bag.

That's ok.....the dogs will be living on the couch and bed anyway.....you two get to live on the floor now!

As for the food.....stay away from corn based foods! I've only fed Nutromax and have had no problems. Not exactly cheap but well worth it in the long run.

Ah....puppy breath and milk teeth (I still have scars on my hands from a rescue greyhound puppy)....your socks/shoes will never be the same! LOL

I will never understand how people can allow dogs that size inside the house... I have a chow/retriever mix, and the only time he comes in is when it's pouring rain or snowing, and then only straight to his kennel.

The personality of these particular dogs are big gentle giants they thrive on lots of hugs and being paid attention to 24/7 The dog loves the couch and the bed. I roll over in my bed and instead of seing my wife I see a big drooling snout staring at me licking my nose. If they were to stay outside all the time in a kennel they would get extremely depressed. I Never understood how people could keep there dog in a kennel most of the day. Its like prison.

I was never one to get a dog and leave it outside. The one in my avatar is a rescue and he is 160Lbs. Nothing but a big teddy bear.

I dont understand spending that much on a "purebred" dog. especially if she is going to cross breed mastiff and bernard for puppies. i spent about a $100 for our dog from the pound and he's just as big and lovable (st bernard/german shepard mix) our second dog we got basically free since we rescued her from the vet's office. Someone shoved her in the door and left and since they are illegal to own in that particular county (she's pitbull) they would have had to put her down.
IMO and i mean no offense but i think it's ridiculous that breeders charge that much for a dog and even more ridiculous that people still buy them at that price.

On another note why cant you just add another fixture to the top of the tank like a 4x39watt t5ho which would only be about $250 depending on where you get it. i looked on catalinaaquarium.com
