EGO aka I Am A Masterpiece
Ego is a lovely fawn boy, and we could not be happier with him! He has been a wonderful addition to our family!! He was born on March 21, 2020, our of our GCH Ripley's very first litter. (Ripley aka GCH Tailcreeks Ripley of Eastwind x Graham aka CH Stonehaven's Oxfords Talk of the Town). Ego and his siblings were born in March during the height of the pandemic! To say this year has been challenging would be an understatement! All of the dogs show careers have started very slowly as a result, and finding majors locally has been a true challenge!
**update** On Oct 16, 17 and 18, 2020 this young dog attended to his first shows! At 6.5 months he made us incredibly proud and gave us a good idea of what to expect in the future! He went in the ring with a Junior handler, Miss Skylar Finn, and was simply amazing! Happy, silly, and definitely at times comical... his tail never stopped! This boy was everything we hoped for in this breeding temperament wise, and just outstanding with his handler who did a truly great job wrangling this silly 162lb 6.5month old!!!! At the end of the three days, he was looking like a true show dog! Never taking less than third in his age class, and winning his class TWICE, he is showing beautifully, he really impressed us all!!
We were especially happy that Shannon Daniels, owner of his dad Graham, was able to travel to the show and watch his debut!! Thank you for coming Shannon! It was so wonderful to finally meet you in person!! A huge "thank you" to Shannon for making this breeding possible! She was amazing to deal with, and we couldn't be happier with the results!
Ego has parents who are clear for DM, Cystinuria, PRA, CMR, so he is already 'clear by parentage' for many things. We will still be doing his testing as we go along... but so far, we are very happy with how this young boy is developing, both physically and mentally!

Ego's DNA profile is complete and on file with the AKC, American Kennel Club.
*Other health testing results pending, we have not been able to find a local facility that will do either CAER or echo for pre-breeding exams. We are hoping to get these done at a clinic or show.
Dino aka Masterpiece Yabba Dabba Doo
Dino attended a local show for three days and made us VERY proud! He showed so well!! He won Winners Dog AND Best of Winners on Wednesday!! Best of Breed against a silver grand champion on Thursday (his first BOB, talk about doing it the hard way!!!)
He was also Winner's dog on Friday! Such an amazing boy!
Dino attended the Bucks and Trenton shows in Trenton NJ with Skylar Finn at the end of his leash. He even got to play with Angela Dineen who was kind enough to show him in Sweepstakes on Sunday! It was quite a weekend for this young energetic boy! Dino never placed less than second in a very nice class on Sat AND Sunday, in a large entry of Mastiffs!
On Sunday we were very happy to see him take Best of Opposite Sex under breeder judge Lisa Armstrong. Thank you for seeing our boy in a large group of beautiful young Mastiffs! Good Job Dino!! What a handsome boy!
Update Dec 2022
Dino is enjoying the show ring, and showing well for a very energetic and HAPPY guy! He does think he is there to play quite often, and that everyone is there to pet and play with him, but he is getting there!!! Dino is already over 200lbs and still the happiest of guys!!
Here is another new addition we are very excited about! Meet our new boy Dino! Dino is out of EVE X EGO, and we are really looking forward to watching him mature!
While Eve gave us another small litter, we are so thrilled with these puppies! Dino has a brindle brother "Mush" aka Mushy, who will be joining him in the show ring sometime!
