Hello, and thank you for stopping by!
My name is Pan and my connection with Mastiffs started years ago when I took my children to a dog show in Maryland. It was there that my young son Josh saw his first Mastiff and said to me "Mom I want one of those dogs!" He was only about 9 or 10 there, but he was a big boy, grew to be 6 ' 7".
Many years later, I saw a notice for a Mastiff that needed to be rescued. Her name was "War" My two children went with me to pick up this mastiff. We traveled across the state and put this huge dog in our car. She had bleach burns all over her body, and boy did she stink. We traveled the whole way home with our windows down!
Although I was assured this dog had her heart worm medicine and testing up to date, it turned out that she had full blown heart worms.
We took her in and had her treated. She lived about a year before dying from liver failure. But my son Josh had really made a connection, so I started research to locate a Mastiff puppy. In 1997 I purchased my first Mastiff. Her name was Madison, she became my "rock". She helped me through the most difficult time in my life, when I lost my son "Josh" who had really begun the whole journey. She was 11 years old when she died and I vowed I would never again own a dog.
But the void was too great, so I started trying to find a puppy that had the same bloodlines as Madison and found our beautiful Annabelle. I decided to show Annabelle as a hobby and fell in love with it. Annie and I formed a bond. She became a champion June 27, 2010.
It was then that my life partner, David, suggested a new puppy was in order to continue our weekend getaways of dog shows! He didn't get any argument from me! We added Sir Chubbington to our line up. He is the polar opposite of Annabelle, and I just love having both ends of the spectrum. Annabelle is serious, Chubbs, is a clown! Annie showed because I loved it, Chubbs shows because he loves it! Annie the finicky eater, Chubbs eats ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.
I grow to love and honor this breed more everyday. We treat our dogs with the honor they deserve. And in Honor of my son Joshua my home will always include a Mastiff. Thus the name "Honor Way Mastiffs"
