Our Mastiff produces enough methane to heat a house. In a confined space he can melt your nose hairs, while driving in the van it can be overwhelming, I told my mom about our outing yesterday -
He saw something worthy of a barrel chest bark and simutanously let loose a particullarly odorific cloud. We were driving down the road with all the windows open and our T-shirts pulled up over our noses, I'm sure traffic in the parking lot were wondering if we were planning to rob Lowe's.
Do any of you have this problem? Some of you have much bigger animals then he so....

A cat maybe the only thing ranker than a dog, ever notice how often a dog will be lying quietly then get up and change his/her address?

Kinda off subject; but I keep telling the Mrs. that I didn't know women could do this until I got married. Now pop can be somewhat out spoken at times, he will just tell you to go set on the pot - instead of drying it up and blowing it out.

We've had plenty of cats, never had one with the potentcy of my Kody tho. Nothing wakes him once he has settled in for the night. Then he goes into the 'Phyllis mode syndrone' he can drown out the TV with his lip flapping and muzzle snorts. (yes, I have elbowed Lee till I figured out it was Kode - try sleeping in a tent with them!) So back to the matter at hand - NO he does not run from 'sleepers' but you should see him hussle away after a *really bad* poopie!

M.R.- Last info I had on wimmen ripping 'em off was that they don't- because they don't shut up long enough to build up the needed pressure. Grinning and getting ready to duck what'll probably the replies! IHank

This one ole feller was in a crowd of mixed company and the pressure was building, so he let a little slip-out, now this was rasspy enough that the crowd was fading back, now this quick thinking gent he turned to a talkative nice looking lady and said "That's okay Lady, just tell them I did it."

No comment on the women, but I know for sure that Steve's at his best either when it's cold, and the covers are all pulled up, or inside a car where you can't get enough fresh air inside quick enough!

Of course women don't fart!
Lee threatens all the time to hook Kode up to a vacuum system and pipe it out thru the muffler -
however he is concerned about how often we would need to replace the exhaust then.

Denise- You might have fantastic potential to create an energy self sufficient homestead, the sort of thing that Mother Earth News rants on about.

Seriously now, snoop thru Mother Earth News articles in the late 70's and early 80's. Also, I remember a very informative "how to" book by a man named Rutan in Minnesota.

They both gave detailed plans and instructions for constructing methane generators that used household and animal waste. There's more truth than fiction in the old bumper sticker, "Eat more beans, Iowa needs gas!"

OK, quit snickering and give it some serious thought! IHank

We have a chocolate lab that had the same problem. I say "had" because we started feeding her sensitive stomach dog food from Science Diet and haven't experienced this problem since!

I would imagine any brand sensitive stomach food would work.

I heard one time about some durn hippy which got a goverment grant to do a study on,heating your house with goat pellets.... they finally caught him growing crazy weed.

If it wasn't so comical, it would be tragic. Don't let Hollywood get wind of this or they'll start shooting scenes for "Blazing Minivans"! ROFL

Seriously, you might consider buying different kibble. Some of it contains a bit of charcoal and less grain for this very purpose. See what the vet sez over the phone. Better yet ..... naw, don't. :)

Denise- I think all dogs are bad about that, but some are worse than others. My Sis raises chocolate labs and one took a big liking to me during a visit to her place. It was bad sitting in the living room watching TV in the evening with the dog curled up and using my foot for a pillow, because there was no audible warning.

Makes me gag thinking about it... Trying to grin, IHank

One good thing about my tiny pom is that she does not have a gas problem, and her poop is the size of a rabbit pellet! LOL

Rabbit Pellets!!!!!
that isn't a dog!
we are talking about serious poopie power here, dairy queen piles the size of a dinner plate.

Mastiffs are gorgeous dogs girl! I love all dogs, even the ones tht they say are aggressive. I believe it's all in the upbring. If I had the money and room, I'd adopt every sad eyed mutt at the pound. The man just down the road bought a baby beagle two days ago, and that is the cutest little fella I've ever seen! I'm a sucker for dogs and men that rub my feet! heehee......

Just opened email from my sister -
She wanted to know what Rob Lowe's house was like!!!

That's funny!! One time, the night before Thanksgiving several years ago, I thought that Steve was snoring. I kept whacking his face, (gently of course), but the noise never did quit, or even change tones. After about 30 minutes of this, I was ready to go to the couch so I could get some sleep. Then it happened again, and I realized it was our dog that was sleeping on the floor by the bed! I had a hard time living that one down.

My mut is at it most of the time, PHEEEW.
Some time ago friends and I were havin' a few beers at a bar when I let one rip. It cleared the bar of about 40 people. They never let me live that one down.
