MASTIFFS OF OUR PAST
Here is Moonshine giving me a kiss at 7
weeks old. Also in the picture is his
sister, Gulph Mills Moonbeam who
became the source for the wonderful
girls I currently own.
Moonshine is shown with one his sons, Ch.
Thunder Paws Captain Murphy who became
an often used stud dog in Southern California.
Ch. Blu Ridge Goldleaf of Blk. Pt. "Daisy"
Daisy was easily the best Mastiff I have ever owned for structure, movement, and type. Ch. Goldleaf Montana x Ch. Southport's Jez of Blue Ridge. Daisy was the #1 Mastiff Bitch in 1991 and 1992. In 1992 she was also the #2 Mastiff overall. As a brood bitch, Daisy produced 5 champion children.
Daisy finished her championship at 9 months old taking breeds over specials. In this picture, Daisy is shwon qualifying for the Puppy of the Year competition Best in Show at a large all breed match held at the Sir Francis Drake Kennel Club show. She went on to place 2nd among the 12 Best in Show match winners.
Dave Hussey is shown here playing with Daisy (Ch. Blu Ridge Goldleaf of Blk. Pt.). Note how athletic this bitch is with her weight completely off the ground.
Ch. Goldleaf's St. Bridgette
Le Roi was a true gentle giant. He ws raised next to a preschool where he received a daily dose of hugs and kisses from the children. He lived to play ball, especially soccer.
Ch. Moonstones Nobelest Resputin x Gulph Mills Moonbeam. Bridgette was my top producing brood bitch. Outcrossed to Ch. BriteStar's Dual Impage "Brogan". Out of a total of 18 puppies they had together, 9 are champions so far and 2 more are pointed. She was known to the neighborhood children as "Huggy Bear" which was appropriate to her sweet dispotition and love of people.
