Capo Del Bandito: Never understood why people name their pets with typical human names. Always found that odd.Why go with a "George" or "Dave" and whatnot. It's so bland and boring.

It's so bland and boring.A friend has a cat named "Bob".There are typical dog names and they're different from typical cat names. Etc. We once named 2 turtles (Milton Metz and Dorothy Fuldheim. Sing out, Cleveland, yeah!) As fate would have it, lots of people name turtles after TV and radio personalities.
twistedmetal: That's what you get for having a dog of that size indoors. Seriously, a dog like that needs acreage, not a small lot.
yakmans_dad: There were people in our neighborhood who kept a pair of mastiffs. (Ordinary 1300-1400 sq ft 1960s suburban house)./Not for long//They're gone, too
Astorix: That dog needs a horse farm to run!
Louisiana_Sitar_Club: Astorix: That dog needs a horse farm to run!You're insane. How do you expect a dog to run a horse farm?
Ihaveanevilparrot: twistedmetal: That's what you get for having a dog of that size indoors. Seriously, a dog like that needs acreage, not a small lot.Um, no. They're not really high energy (right now he's a puppy, he will probably calm down), and they are generally couch potatoes unless you take them out for exercise. It's more of a problem to keep something like a border collie indoors with a small backyard without heavily exercising daily, so it has nothing to do with size.You also don't really want a giant breed running around all over the place for the first few years because it can cause long term joint issues to put strain on them during growth. Low impact exercise like just walking and swimming are fine.I have a 135lb greater swiss mountain dog. She has never destroyed anything other than her toys, and even has her own loveseat. Mastiff type dogs are big and lazy in general, they just need some daily exercise and mental stimulation and training. Between her and my two other dogs I go through lots of cheap goodwill stuffed animals, but it's certainly cheaper than replacing couches!This lady needs to train her dogs. Mine have never done that type of destruction (just minor stuff as puppies like chewing on a table corner here and there), and if they were chewing on my couch they'd be locked up in a heavy duty kennel when unsupervised. If this dog has destroyed 14 couches it's because she gives it no rules and leaves it unsupervised for extended periods of times, not to mention probably bored and lacks enough items that are appropriate to be chewed on.
pyrotek85: We have a dobie who really is high energy, but she doesn't destroy things because we don't let her. She gets a chance to run around outside and has her own chews to play with.
Kriggerel: Ah, The wonders of pediatric neutering in male dogs. That dog will be crippled for most of its life, and dead by nine.
Resident Muslim: Marmaduke!!/old
Stephen_Falken: The misusage of the second hyphen in this headline only goes to show how modern educated adults continue to suffer at the hands of lazy, uninformed idiots who make us all look ridiculous and unschooled by their presence in our midst.If multiple words work together as a single adjective, they are hyphenated, e.g. "twelve-year-old girl". But a girl who is "fourteen years old" clearly has no hyphen.
