If you thought having one Mastiff would be a handful, try having two. Personally, I've never given it a second thought, however. These two buddies are just part of our family. They go where we go and watch when we play. I say 'watch' because they prefer that over too much action. In fact, there are times that Rough and Ready are down-right lazy. Usually it takes one or the other playing to motivate his brother to join in the fun. And almost always it takes a lot of encouragement from the kids to get even one to play, at least for any length of time.

But when it comes to being lovable and a protector of the family, I can't think of two other dogs I'd rather have. Ready is always on the watch for any perceived threats and he always puts himself between that threat and us. But he won't be aggressive if the threat backs away or we give the okay. On the other hand, Rough will just keep his eye on the situation from afar while his brother handles the details. After the 'threat' is neutralized and all is well, Ready usually comes back and gives his brother a big nudge on the head as if to say, "There, I took care of it."

Rough has his strong points, however. He was always willing to let the kids rough-house and play around on him as if he were some sort of big pillow or bedroll. He had plenty of patience and tolerance when the kids were younger, much more than his brother. They are a perfect pair and complement each other well. We can't imagine owning just one.
