Nevermind the messy yard, the new place has TONS of work needing to be done to it.























Hope you enjoyed the pics! I think D's turning out great! Couldn't be happier with him.

PS: I have been blessed with neighbours who LOVE him and don't mind the springpole one bit. I couldn't have been luckier. Some states ban it because they think it's part of training fighting dogs which is pure BS

I am currently rebuilding one fence and adding a new fence to the one side of my yard.

I also have a large workshop in the yard which previously was used as a kennel (very luckily for me!) and had an indoor/outdoor run built into it. It has since been borded up but I am re-constructing it.

I have also (lucky again) met a friend of the nieghbour who has a LOT of chainlink fence which she had used for a previous pen + runs for her dogs, and she lives around the corner from me. She is GIVING me these materials FOR FREE, and I am purchasing more from Diablo's breeder, he has extra for sale.

Lots of work to do here but I am planning on staying here a while now. I love the area and my neighbours are super cool, they love bulldogs. I love being so close to the states now too. Driving 10 hrs to Tennessee then possibly driving 5 hrs to Indeanapolis next week. I like road trips of that length, especially if the weather is nice, but previously it would have been far too difficult a journey.

Q is also staying with the girl. She's taking care of him and brings him over for visits. Have to make room for a couple additions. I told the neighbours of the additions and they are totally cool about it and even anxious LOL. I may be getting another adult AB (female) and will be creating a 2nd run + pen in the back with Diablo. The 2 new pups will be inside with me. Glad I have a big house now, it's a good starter home for me because it's very cheap + old, the landlord is giving me money to do work to it, and while I do the work you KNOW I will be customizing it for my own uses + liking lol

Check this out, it's pretty cool I thought. These are all dogs that are in Diablo's Ped multiple times. The ones that show up most often.

I was looking at pics of dogs in Diablo's pedigree, and he has a STRIKING resemblance to Leclerc's Raging Bull (only much larger and bullier because of the Sure Grip and Barbosa blood in him)

Same markings, and a good dose of this dog's drive I think. Diablo is at least 2x Raging Bull (out of Johnson's Red Machine believe it or not)





6x Johnson's Red Machine (again, at least, may have missed some in the ped)



Symme's Rip 'N Woody bred by Johnson (old johnson blood)



He's also got a good dose of some really good (the older) MGK blood

MGK's She's a Doozy


MGK's Gator Red



He's doubled up on his grand-sire RE Sultan who he also has a striking resemblance to.










Really good working lines out of that guy. Sultan was tightly bred on Leclerc and Sure Grip lines.

Thanks! Yeah np on the pics of the dog run.

I'm clearing away an old wood pile first behind the kennel and then I'll take pics as I build it. The hole is already cut in the one bottom corner of the kennel, and there's a bracket already placed on the outside that someone used in a previous outdoor run, but I'm going to modify it to my own specs to have 2 - 3 indoor / outdoor runs. The interior has cement floors, which is perfect for cleaning. Once it's all done I will pick up some straw blocks so they will always have fresh bedding. Before I start to build I am spreading fresh borax around the kennel to raise the pH of the soil and eliminate pests. I'm then mixing cocoa powder with borax + flour and putting it in key spots inside the kennel (away from where the dogs will be though, this is toxic to them) to also act as pest control. Then when it;s all done, hooking up a mini-stereo system for them so they have some background audio to keep them occupied. If they have low constant noise/sound, it helps keep them calm and prevents them from barking at outside sounds like voices etc. Constant voices from a radio station really helps. Once they get used to it, they shouldn't really ever bark at any "strange" sound from outside the kennel, because it will all blend in.
