The Granddogs

My son Mark and his girlfriend Reesa live in a very small loft apartment in downtown Vancouver. Despite the lack of space they each have a dog.

Reesa came to Vancouver with Bronx. Bronx is a German Shepherd cross.

A few months ago Mark bought himself a dog, Oakland. Oakland is an English Mastiff. He is 4 months old and around 60 pounds. It is likely he will reach 200 pounds. What is funny is that his skin is all ready for the 200 pounds - you can actually pull the skin 3 or 4 inches away from his body!
