    Our last dog was a chocolate lab.... friggin 4 legged stoach! She was a sweet heart and great with kids but, man, she could eat!

      Or a chicken every couple of days, maybe.

      My girl is around 80lbs and my boy is 85 to 90 lbs (had to put him in a diet after he hit 110lbs a few years ago). And the East less than a 1.5 lbs of raw meaty bones and offal per day on average.

      They are akita's though and are known for their small to moderate appetites. I think a mastiff is a different kettle of fish. I'd still recommend feeding them raw (puppy primal if you will) though.
      we have rabbits and possums galore...... and our possum are ugly azzed thangs too! I have a pelt of a NZ possum... gorgeous fur! looks like mink.

      • For lunch yesterday I diced up half of a pumpkin and half of a butternut squash for roasting.... it filled up a good sized plastic container, so I roasted some, put the rest in the fridge to cook later. The stuff I roasted yesterday I spiced with a little salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger... man it were delish.... Tonight for breakfast, I put some in a skillet and made a "hash", of sorts with the squash, mushrooms and diced chicken, seasoned with salt and pepper, fried with bacon fat.... oh my tongue had a ball!! It was very tasty, and the fat and chicken left me feeling very satisfied.... I will be doing that one again!

        On the dog front, the wife showed me a website for mastiff rescues..... the closest one is about 4 or 5 hours away..... looks I may me doing some traveling.... she "jokingly" mentioned we need 2 dogs..... a mastiff and a great dane.... my response was something along the line of "You really don't want any furniture in the house do you!?"

The next day she wouldn't even let me in the house..... so my experince with akitas hasn't been the most possitive to be had.. Gorgeous dog though!
          Yeah, some can be a worry. Mine are fantastic with people, but unfortunately not great with other animals, especially cats and small yappy dogs. My fault really, didn't socialise them well enough when they were young.

            I looked into getting an irish wolfhound to, but their average life expectancy is even shorter than an akita (8yrs I think).

            This might interest you. They are trying to breed a large friendly companion dog, without the health issues common to most large breeds and the lifespan of smaller breeds.

              When I was a kid we had a lab x golden retriever. It ate everything from socks to the legs off our kitchen table to a strip of the carpet right up the middle of our stairs

                  lol.... sounds familiar! though ours never ate the carpet... When she was a pup, she chewed incessantly.... she went through 3 or 4 of those cow thigh bones they sell at pet stores... and she LOVED rawhide....

                                I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.
