    I recall an old post, where everyone was trying to work out what breed a monster dog was, did that mystery ever get solved? Last I read it was going to be awhile before you got back around to monster dogs home again with the hope of possibly getting some photographic evidence (you were trying to find a work around so no Explosion occurs).


    Keep up the good work, I for one would definitely buy a book about the dog encounters especially if written in your writing style...
    Thanks M.C.

    Unfortunately......or maybe it's fortunately i havent been back to the devil dogs house. Whether they dont use as much gas during the warmer months or it's been put on the other blokes run, i dunno ??

    I dont like my chances of getting pics.......OHS is so full on with my job it could lead to instant dismissal or worse case ...death...so i'm not going to push my luck. But if the oportunity arises i'll do my best. The owner may even be home next time too so i'll hit them up if i see them. I'm still convinced the devil dog was a French Mastiff cross Pitbull but i'm hopless at guessing breeds.

    What ever he is i'm sure your superdog could give him a touch up !!

    Ah Sean but super dog is a lover not a fighter... He lets a 12 week old puppy walk all over him and is frightened of leaves... If someone happens to walk into our backyard by mistake Super Dog turns tail and runs back inside...

    I to am hopeless at guessing dog breed mixes but I do like it when we have threads about guessing a dogs parentage...

    keep safe but keep the stories coming...

    Well today saw the shoe on the other foot.

    I find it kinda funny when someone walks up to our house and Mojo goes from snooring Goof to wanna be tough guy with his chest all pumped out and his big deep bark. Knowing full well once they are inside he'll be all friendly and want to sniff and play with them......watching people back away or wait for me to come and 'rescue' them from the big dog makes me realise he does look a bit intimidating at times, wich has it's goods and bads i guess.

    So today i jump out of the truck totally confident that the red cattle dog is securely fenced off....meaning he dosnt try and jump or push through the flimsy chicken wire fence he's penned off with. He barks but thats it.

    It was the thunderous deep bark that first made me look up.... there he was....the red dog, but now he has a mate......a big bloody mate .....who has a attitude and the size to back it up. Holy sheeeeeettt.......flimsy chicken wire was now doubled in height but not strentgh...and here was one pissed off Mastiff that didnt like me, the truck or my work mate. He was thumping his front paws on the ground as he expressed his dislike of our presence. Clearly he wanted to eat me.

    My heart rate picked up but it felt like the gas flow rate had slowed to a drizzle.....C'mon.....fill up...hurryyy, hurryy...C'mon...i dont want to die here.!!!

    Finally i was able to unhook, turn my back on him and jog back to the truck.....the whole time praying that chicken wire wasnt made on a friday afternoon. Back in the truck i was safe enough to stare at him and get a good look. He was no taller than Mojo but his head was a bit wider...his bark in hindsight was on par with the giant pug's.

    "Mojo's about that big now "....i said to my mate (who later admitted he had planned to jump in their trailer boat if the fence failed)

    ...it was about then i pictured the last neighbour who wasnt so keen to come inside my place because of Mojo. I now know how he felt......it's not a nice feeling.

    It's not a gas man story, but it is a tradie story... so I'm gonna hijack, Sean...

    I was having ducted cooling installed. The guys had come to give me a quote and through the course of conversation I mentioned I had a puppy and that he would be secured when they were on site. Villain was about 6 months at that stage.

    So, they come, they measure, they leave... all without seeing Villi. Later, after I had gone to work and let Villi out into the yard, they decided to come back to get one last measurement they had forgotten. One bloke says to the other, it's just a puppy, we'll be ok.

    So, in to my yard they go, and Villain sticks his head through the verandah ballusters to have a look at them. (They did admit later he didn't even bark).

    The rest of the story was told to me by my neighbor later that evening:

    "I have never seen two big guys run pell mell out of someone's property and drive away squealing and smoking the tires in this street before" was all he said.

    At least they paused to shut the gate, lol

    Well it's been a few weeks since my last post here so heres a bit of a update.

    At one job i had to jump out and open thier driveway gate to let the truck in and was aproached by 5 dogs. I've met them all before and knew they'd put on a show but they are usually pretty good...just a bit noisey. So while they are carrying on i stuck my hand through the gate to let them all have a sniff.

    The boxer was fine.....just a bit crazy....bark, sniff, 360, bark ,sniff more 360's..LOL.

    The 2 shihtzu's ...bark, bark, bark....run away bark, bark bark, run back up, bark....little dog syndrome at its best..

    The bitsa...sniff, sniff, walk away...no big deal...

    The overweight black Lab.......sniff, sniff, CHOMP !!!!! Bastards got me by the back of the glove and hes trying to drag me through the bloody fence.!!!!! The glove rips and i'm standing there in total shock...didnt see that coming at all. Open the gate and getting ready to kick this bugger in the guts if he comes again. Luckily for both of us the owner then comes out and the fat mutt runs up to him ...tail wagging like nothing happened. I let it slide...this time.....next time i'm not taking my eye of him.

    Then monday this week i met the biggest dog i've ever seen in real life.

    I got within 10 metres of the gas bottle not knowing that a MASSIVE Mastiff cross Bull Arab was chained up next to it. He heard me coming and just stood up for a look. I stopped dead in my tracks when the top of his head reached the same height as the top of the gas bottle. I dropped the gas gun and went to knock on the front door...the first time a dogs ever made me do that.!!!
    A little old lady came out and unchained him to take him inside. There was about 3 seconds that dog was only held by her little hand.!!!!
    He stood there on the other side of the glass door jut watching my every move......Man what a dog !!! I'm guessing easily 65 kg's and so tall !! Made Mojo look like a little puppy. LOL.

    There was also a job that read "beware of new Rottwieller" on the paper work...so we entered very wary....looking for a slobbering killer !!! There has was....all 2 months of him...tiny and cute as a button. Timid of who these new people where with tail firmly wedged between tiny puppy wegs.
    Stuff work for a few minutes...theres a cute little pup to play with and convince we are his friends. Very mindfull that this buggers gunna get bigger soon. So after puppy kisses and cuddles we made a new friend !!! Cant wait to see the little fella again !!!

    'Sean' - just looooove reading what you write - the stories, descriptions - well just love them !

    There is definitely a book in all of this for you ! Is there someone in your family that can draw pictures/cartoons ? That would get around the OHS stuff !

    Please some more - please !

    Totally agree with Riley, it's not just the great stories, you are clearly blessed with the art of story telling. You really should keep a good diary of all these events, just in case.

    I remember years ago reading a book called something like "Amazing sheepdog tales" .. I still have it here somewhere i'm pretty sure(i'll try and find it and post the actual name of the book), it's a great read that even non dog lovers enjoy - but still doesn't have the sense of adventure that you put in your stories.
