Introducing: Colorado's Big Bowl o' Ramen and Colorado's Leap of Faith

Please say hello to Nobu and Ramen.

We decided to keep two puppies from the Noodle + Gunnar Litter... a female and a male.

Nobu (Colorado's Leap of Faith) is affectionately called Gunnar Junior... though I should probably start calling her Junior-ette.  She is the spitting image of her father.

Ramen (Colorado's Big Bowl o' Ramen) was a surprise for us.  He's easy-going and very much a momma's boy and we're so happy that we decided he should stay with us.

These two are great friends and learning the ropes around the farm.... which includes wrestling with Papa. ;-)

Puppies Gone Home

My how time flies.

The last of our puppies went to their homes three weeks ago.

These pictures are from about a month ago.

Do Your Homework!

With rare and storied breeds like the Tibetan Mastiff, you have to be aware of shysters.

This person (people?) recently started a Facebook page using photos of dogs and children that do not belong to them.

I have seen a couple of the photos listed on the page before and am fairly certain they belong to different people.  Sadly it's common for these non-breeders to use photos of other people's dogs.

What is truly upsetting is that I personally know the children in the cover photo.  They are the grandchildren of a close friend of mine.

This person does not have permission to use this photo to represent their "breeding program."

Now, if you are new to your Tibetan Mastiff search, you may not realize that these photos are stolen.  So spend a few minutes looking at the other information.

This person says s/he is a "C-40a crew chief for the American Kennel Club in Montreal."
  1. The American Kennel Club does not have jurisdiction in Canada.
  2. The C-40a is a US Navy aircraft
  3. The American Kennel Club does not operate military aircraft.
Do your research!  Protect yourself!

There are many honest and responsible breeders out there with real dogs and puppies that are raised in loving homes from health-tested parents.

Fortunately this page has since been taken down.
