Melbill - this is a MASTIFF board. It is not a board set up for you to justify the actions of your deceased father. I am very sorry that you lost your father, and I sincelely mean that.  I lost a parent myself a year ago and it is difficult.
 
 Lashing out at others is not going to help you any - and if it is the only way you can handle your grief, you are going to have to do it somewhere else. The people on this board have the mastiff breed's welfare in their hearts, and they are not going to make any excuses for anyone that threatens this welfare.  Dead or alive, healthy or sick - it is ablout the future of this breed. We are the custodians of the breed and do not take this job lightly.
 
It is time for you to either post constructively - remember that this board gets read all over the world by thousands of people - or go post your attacks on some other board.  End of discussion.

We do not breed often, but we do our best to breed top quality mastiffs
with excellent pedigrees to back them up. All breedings are carefully planned to produce
the very best mastiffs, sound in both body and mind, beautiful and strong,
representing the true mastiff standard.

We fully test our dogs. We believe that a person that "just wants a pet" has a right
to own a beautiful, well bred dog that is sound and healthy
every bit as much as someone wanting a "show dog".

Melbill,

Click out this url and tell me that, as a Mastiff lover, you would not question the integrity and intentions of someone who breeds dogs that look like this and then deceives the public by calling them Mastiffs.

http://www.bigboymastiffs.com/YoungAdults.html

Cancer, sick, dying or not; these dogs are extremely marginal representations of the breed and anyone who loves Mastiffs had a right to question and "lie" to the person who produced them to make sure they were not going to be sold to people who would breed on these "lines" again and again and again.

The person responsible for creating these dogs had a lot to answer for.  He directly contributed to the decline of a most wonderful and noble breed od dog. 

Steve's "lies" and the lies of others were woven to assure that these dogs would not reproduce.  Their "offenses" are extremely miniscule compared to the "offenses" this breeder comitted against a breed we all love and cherish.

I hope that made things a little clearer for you.  A "lie" to save a beautiful, ancient breed of dog that was on the verge of extinction only 75 years ago is nothing compared to contributing to the destruction of this same breed all over again. 

Steve and others were merely trying to do the right thing by their breed.

When you look at those pictures, I hope you can understand this.

H

The reason why many dedicated breeders and fanciers are alarmed!

First--acslinda-a perfect example of lying/rumor on this board-My father is eighty years old and lives with my family,as he has for the last 14 years in the great state of Montana..he is alive and well...in  fact I am no relation to Mr. Massie in no way...funny your need to get on this post and bash me and apparently my father with no justification...the people on this board started a thread based on a malicious rumor started by miss thousand oaks..who by the way had started another thread as well on this situation...a breeder starting unsubstantiated rumors about another......Lets see what our friend Theresa has said about rumors in the past...

 

Theresa 07-26-08

Next lessons I see that needs to be learned here is a huge dose of compassion, an even bigger dose of don't throw stones and finally, don't repeat rumors unless you
know first hand the information.

 

Theresa 07/25/08

Try to be understanding of the breeder too!

 

Theresa10/14/09 at 10:37 PM

but by the same token, it was necessary for those attacked to take up for themselves.

(he died so I will)

 

Theresa10/08/09

For those individuals that keep giving him a "pass" for his disturbing behavior, I wonder how happy they would be if he spouted some of his b.s. about THEM.

 

Or lets see what Steve said in the past..

 

SteveOifer10/08/09

It seems that his old forum has decided to make some broad accusations towards yours truly and others, which are not accurate in a number of ways

 

SteveOifer10/09/09

Lying, distorting and exaggerating facts have their seeds based in reality. Therein lies the danger in remaining silent to those who would target one for such distortions.(he did not like it when it was pointed at him...)

 

 MINDEE chimed in:

 

MINDEE 08/03/08

 Only way to stop a rumor...deal with it head on.

 

So asclinda I have no personal  grief over Mr. massies death (sorry for his family) and the fact that you lied about my father being Mr. Massie your post is essentially a complete and total fabrication...A LIE.  Like so many others on this board.  You have said the same BS as everyone you feel justified for the breed...if you want to post please post facts and you have none..explain any post on here I have made that is a lie????? can't so stay away unless you have relevent truthful information...attacked who on this board???

Theresa with the quotes I posted in the previous thread its seems like you have two opinions..one when your friends make these statements(i.e Miss thousand oaks)..I did not read where you said these things to her or others on this board while they were making UNFOUNDED rumors and calling a sick dying older man an idiot...or lying about his operation/kennel with ZERO NADA ZILCH NO FIRST HAND INFORMATION...NO YOU PERSONALLY DID NOT ATTACK HIM BUT YOU DID NOT PUT A STOP TO THE RUMOR OR INNUENDO..THEN PROCEEDED TO  DEFENDED THE WOMAN AND HER OPERATION AFTER SHE STARTED THIS POST..SO DO YOU BELIEVE THOSE THINGS YOU SAID IN YOUR EARLIER POSTS OR ONLY WHEN THEY BENEFIT YOU OR YOUR PALS...

MelBill...

I have no doubt that Mr Massie loved his dogs and Im sure he was cautious when placing them. Sadly that doesn't make you a good breeder. Plenty of "good" people breed dogs...doesn't mean they should.

Fact: He did not breed dogs that should be bred.
Fact: He did not do the necessary health testing on the dogs prior to breeding

Based on those 2 things alone he was not a good breeder. And its to be snobby. I have seen on more than one occasion breeders on this very site eliminate dogs from their breeding program...fixing them and placing them as pets because they feel they don't benefit the breed..whether it was based on overall looks or health or temperament. Their love of the breed helped them make the decision that was right for the breed as a whole and NOT breed a dog they felt was sub standard. Just because they are a purebred doesn't mean then should be bred. Just because you have a boy and a girl...does not mean they should make puppies.
I have no doubt he was a great person. And I'm sure there are some very happy people that got his mastiffs.

First do not attack Linda! This is her forum you are posting on and although your posts contain no information useful to the Mastiff breed she has yet to delete your account despite the fact that you are obsessed with calling us every name in the book.

Second I expressely gave you permission to copy and paste my posts on this thread, re-post them and trash Eery word I wrote as you saw fit. Instead you did nothing. Maybe you couldn't find anything to support your nasty posts?

Third this isn't the "Who Melbill Hates Forum"! It is a Mastiff Forum! Be done with this nonsense!

FINALLY HMAN-
I OWN ONE OF MR MASSIES DOGS SO I DO NOT HAVE TO LOOK AT THE PICTURES...I WILL REPEAT FROM MY FIRST POSTS-MY VET IS A WORLD RENOWNED BREEDER OF RHODESIAN RIDGE BACKS-SHES IN GERMANY WHILE WE SPEAK CHAIRING AN INTERNATIONAL FORUM ON BREEDING OF RIDGE BACKS-HAS BEEN MY DOGS VET-BOTH MY ST BERNARDS AND MY MASTIFF ARE SEEN BY HER...SHE HAS STATED THAT MY MASTIFF PUPPY IS SUITABLE FOR SHOW OR BREEDING AND AFTER A THOROUGH EXAM OF HER PEDIGREE HAS DECLARED IT SOLID WITHOUT ANY RESERVATIONS AT ALL...SO HMAN WHAT DO YOU MAKE YOUR JUDGMENTS AND ACCUSATIONS BASED ON PICTURES ON THE WEB..YOU ARE MAGICAL THEN IF YOU CAN DETERMINE..these dogs are extremely marginal representations of the breed and anyone who loves Mastiffs had a right to question and "lie" to the person who produced them to make sure they were not going to be sold to people who would breed on these "lines" again and again and again.

OK ARE YOU CALLING MY VET A LIAR OR YOU JUST CAN MAKE THESE DETERMINATIONS MAGICALLY..HOW MANY PICTURES DO YOU HAVE OF YOURSELF THAT ARE NOT FLATTERING...SHOULD PEOPLE MAKE JUDGMENTS ABOUT YOU BASED ON THESE PHOTOS..
Steve's "lies" and the lies of others were woven to assure that these dogs would not reproduce.  Their "offenses" are extremely minuscule compared to the "offenses" this breeder committed against a breed we all love and cherish.
 WHAT OFFENSE ARE YOU SPEAKING OF YOU HAVE FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE OF THIS THEN POST THAT INSTEAD OF YOUR LIES...

I hope that made things a little clearer for you.  A "lie" to save a beautiful, ancient breed of dog that was on the verge of extinction only 75 years ago is nothing compared to contributing to the destruction of this same breed all over again. 
WHAT YOUR POST HAS SHOWN IS THAT YOU DEFEND A MAN WHO LIE AND DECEIVED AN OLDER DY INF MAN FOR HIS OWN JUSTIFICATION ..HE DID THIS BASED ON NO REAL INFORMATION OR FACTS ...
STEVE TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING FOR THE BREED ...HOW ABOUT FOR THE HUMAN...WHY LIE WHY NOT AT LEAST TRY TO CALL AND TALK TO HIM  I DID OVER A PERIOD OF MONTHS AND MONTHS AND HE WAS FORTHCOMING AND HONEST..NEVER PUSHY AND DID EVERYTHING A SAID HE WOOLS AND MY VET SAID HE DID EVERYTHING HEALTH WISE HE SHOULD..SO STOP THE JUSTIFYING..SHOULD WE TEACH OUR KIDS THAT ITS OK TO LIE IF YOU FEEL JUSTIFIED...SHOULD WE TELL CRIMINALS ITS OK TO DO THINGS BECAUSE THEY FELT JUSTIFIED
JUSTIFICATION IS NOTHING MORE THAN AN INDIVIDUALS REASONING FOR ACCEPTANCE OF COMMITTING OR DOING SOMETHING THEY KNOW IS WRONG
STAY OFF THE BOARDS UNLESS YOU HAVE FIRST HAND INFO THAT WHAT STEVE DID WAS JUSTIFIED IN THIS SITUATION

The facts are on his website. Anyone can see the info there. Are you saying I am wrong?

He infact secretly OFA tested, had his breeding dogs CERF'd and cleared for PRA, Cystinurnia and Vwb and Thyroid? He did all that...secretly? If thats the case..I will retract and humbly apologize.

I am made of pure magic.

I can levitate. 

I can pass through walls. 

I once spent 24 hours orbiting the earth in just shorts and a t-shirt. 

I can move mountains. 

I once swam the Atlantic just to get some Fish and Chips for lunch; I like English food (I'm probably alone, there).   I was home for dinner.

I can freeze time.

I have traveled to other galaxies through wormholes.

I have x-ray vision.

I know a quality mastiff when I see one. 

I know that the 4 pictures I commented on portray very poor examples of the breed; very poor indeed.

Has your all-breed expert Vet seen these pics?  

She must be more magical than I if she can determine a "breeding/show" quality Mastiff based on her knowledge as a Ridgeback breeder.

Melbil,

It's actually well over 14500, as I deleted many when I once left this forum.

So you must be a liar, since you posted something that is untrue!

I'm just using your logic, which has not served you well!

HI Melbill,
Where in Montana are you located? I checked your profile and the only thing it says is you're from Montana. The reason I'm asking is AKC dog shows are in Montana next week starting Tues. June 22 in Billings. It's really nice to be able to go and see other mastiffs. Usually the Montana shows have very good examples of good quality mastiffs. When they are lined up together you can see how they all differ and what a good mastiff really looks like. I can give you locations and times if you are interested. It's so fun to visit with mastiff owners/breeders at ring side. It's also good to check out the AKC Mastiff standard before you go so you can watch for what the judge is looking for in a mastiff.
TTFN Lynn

A misunderstanding does not make it a lie! Please refrain from attacking people. If you don't like someone for what they say and post, please try to ignore it.
I hope you can get to a show so maybe you will get a better idea of how the "standard" is "interpreted" by most modern day mastiff fanciers.

Sorry Monica ;( it is a nasty thread and I have helped make it that way.(seem to still have one because you have attacked me for no reason

 

06/13/10 at 08:34 PM

You two were tight according to your own posts to Catie, so enlighten us and finally be FREE!!!!!

we (ok I) am only going off of your own posts(Thats all I am doing but you criticize me..why is it ok for you to do but not me)

 

06/11/10 at 04:14 PM

Clarified what? You didn't clarify anything in Steve's post, except to use the word clarify, which didn't amount to anything, but the need for actual clarification!(I have asked for the same thing from all the posters yet none respond why because i haven't lied or decieved or attacked unjustly)

 

06/10/10 at 10:42 PM

Now that I have stated that, I am absolutely guilty of plenty of my own mud-slinging and losing focus of the real issue(seems like a recurring bad trait you have identified in yourself and again towards me it rears it head..your own words)

 

06/09/10 at 11:21 PM

God knows I have hounded, trashed, and tortured Kazia (my own human faults driven by my desire for justice whether correct or wrong). (so truth has no part in your judgement no wonder you have attacked me)(your own words)

P.S. I have a life, it consisits of seeking out the TRUTH.(why wouldnt you give me or mr massie that same benifit before attacking )

 

04/18/10 at 11:54 AM

Maybe there could be a distinct definition of "breeder bashing" as opposed to "unfavorible conditions". Just a thought.......(please explain where you draw the line or doesn't it matter if you are right or wrong as you stated before..only that you want justice against mr massie without having any info)

05/30/10 at 06:13 PM

Oh man, I hope I didn't make him mad! I just wanted his opinion. I am such a freaking mess!

(again your own words, a tendency to make make people mad...seems like a little attitude problem but I can only go off what you have written.)

 

Well the fact that someone questioned you about it very obviously brought out the "Pit Bull" in me(see above...for questioning the health of a dog you so stAaunchly say needs protection...someone asking about a dogs health and somehoww that makes you mad....)

 

06/13/10 at 03:16 PM

I get so worked up sometimes, especially when it comes to the older guys!(see above)

 

06/13/10 at 02:40 PM

I'm sorry, but I have to question why a person would be so brazen as to question the health/ happiness of a 10 year old Mastiff! Ten years old speaks volumes about the health/happiness and CARE of said Mastiff!(why isnt that person looking out for the health and welfare of a dog...something you have loudly proclaimed you and all the others on this board are doing...why would it make you mad...)

Now I am mad!

05/30/10 at 06:35 PM

You are right though people are dumb.(Really...great judgemental attitude a big generalization..you can make broad generalizations but i can't call people out for what they wrote on this post)

 Linda you said " It is time for you to either post constructively - remember that this board gets read all over the world by thousands of people - or go post your attacks on some other board.  End of discussion.

 

So my question to you is are these posts constructive or have anything to do with mastiffs?  why werent you on these posts saying what you said to me? No the are opionated views of the world that bashes and makes unfounded accusations toward muslims (are there maybe some muslims out there that would be offended by this post reading it), our president, his policies..what did any of this have to do with mastiffs and did you put the same effort into having her quit posting as me...because i only responded to what was written never did i give an opinion so blatently out of context of mastiffs as this. which statements do you think offended more people?

My God that is the scariest, dumbest thing he has done to date! We are a prime target for several very hostile countries who will continue to try and annihilate us every chance they get! Those countries do not play by the rules but we do! He has made us sitting ducks!

 

05/30/10 at 06:35 PM

I just don't know. I think these other countries are more concerned about what they can do to us as opposed to the malnutrition of their own citizens. It is a completely different mindset with them. We are the most humanitarian country on earth, but their whole focus is Allah and wiping out the Infidels, us. They seem to give no consideration to what they can do for their own people, but focus instead on "Big Bad America". You are right though people are dumb. I think their hatred for us and disdain for their own people suffering and dying is so engrained in their culture it is impossible for them to think in any other way. Their main goal is service to Allah and the afterlfie he will provide his Martyres (sp?) not the immediate needs of their fellow country men. It is a sad and real truth.

05/30/10 at 05:08 PM

Sue you are right but the main distinction is who is most likely to use them? I think we as a country learned a tough lesson from Hiroshima (although it was a different bomb used) but there are countries that think in a way totally different than America. In a perfect world these bombs would not exist but they do. I think policing our own armament is more reason for them to strike us first. It is sad, and scary, but true. Our best defense is to remain a nuclear super power if only to make them think twice about attacking us.

 

04/22/10 at 02:03 PM

Well personally I am a very Conservative Republican and hve a great disdain for Obama. I am not a breeder but as a future buyer I would first consider those on the ABS or whatever other name you want to call it! Or maybe I'll rescue a Davis, Degerdon or whatever else comes out of a mess from those in the future instead of trying to help prevent it to begin with!

CANT ANSWER THOSE QUESTIONS CAN YOU STEVE I THINK EVERYONE HERE SEES WHATS GOING ON WITH YOU..ATTACK ME BECAUSE YOU CANT ANSWER THE QUESTIONS..



Melbil, I've been very patient with you and your attacks on me.

I have no clue as to what questions you are referring to, since you ramble so much within your accusations.

It seems as though you feel that I'm attacking you, by just using the same tactics you accuse others of using and then calling them liars after using it.

Did you or did you not state that I've posted 14500 posts?

If so, you've lied!

Can't answer that?

So why should I answer you?

Just using your rules!

See how much sense it makes?

Whoa you have to much time on your hands to take posts out of context to plead your case. Its really getting out of hand. You are making yourself appear completely irrational and unstable.And honestly...you are making Mr Massie look really bad yourself...if YOU are the type of person he sold puppies to!

If a lie is a lie is a lie, in your world, then YOU lied!

I posted more than 14500 on this forum and since you didn't do your research to find out (sound familiar?) then you lied when you say it's 14500!

In your black & white world, you are therefore a liar!

Mind you, I am not calling you a liar, since in my world I understand the difference!

You also infer that the number of my posts means something negative. Once again proving my point about your hypocritical view in this whole matter!

You know nothing of me, yet you feel free to engage in the same tactics that you seem to be offended by in the first instance.

Therefore, it's OK for you to assume somethings about another individual, but others don't have that same right!

Anyone can be a poster!

I've also called "breeders" to see what they were about and posed as a potential buyer.

It's called getting to the truth in order to warn buyers of potential mistakes.

These breeders are usually clueless, or outright deceptive, and fighting fire with fire is not a broken commandment!

Especially, when it's for the benefit & welfare of the general community!



The above is my post #25.

It clearly shows what I said!

Doesn't say anything about me calling Mr. Massie, now does it!

You are guilty of the very crime that you are prosecuting me of!

(i) ...Melbil, You assumed to know!

You then based your response on that knowledge, even though you didn't research more before making your erroneous statement.

(ii)...You then compound your error by thinking that I called Mr. Massie!

How do you plead to the court?

You are a liar and hippocrite there are no posts on any thread on how to help Mr. Massie only bashing him and those that came to his defense.  And you are one of them...hope you are happy loser. Kicking/belittling a man who had cancer that you never met or spoke with.  You are all pathetic holier than thou jerks mind your business and not other peoples and above all do not continue your current path of doubletalk B.S.

Melbil,

I see that you've tip toed around the phone call lie that you claimed I made!

Very selective!

Do your homework!

Ask the owner of the forum, she can easily confirm my big lie about additional posts that were deleted.

I've supplied a witness, now can you answer my question about where you have seen me state that I called Mr. Massie?

Melbill  - I appologise. I thought that Mr Massey was your father.  Obviously he is not.
 
I still feel that you are way off base here with your constant negative comments. Please stop immediately or I will remove you from the this board.  This is my last statement on this -

We do not breed often, but we do our best to breed top quality mastiffs

the very best mastiffs, sound in both body and mind, beautiful and strong,
representing the true mastiff standard.

We fully test our dogs. We believe that a person that "just wants a pet" has a right
to own a beautiful, well bred dog that is sound and healthy
every bit as much as someone wanting a "show dog".
