Mae Bell's Documentation (PDF)

Mae Bell is our oldest mastiff dog; she’s the matriarch of Ringsides Kennel.  Mae Bell was a mastiff pet that started our journey into mastiff show dogs.  Ringsides Kennel has always bred boxers until Mae Bell came into our lives.  She has turned us into a dual dog home now.  Boxers will always have a special place at Ringsides and maybe in the future there might be a boxer section.  But Mae Bell started the mastiff journey into showing, breeding and the relationships that come with those hobbies.  Mae Bell was born in 1999.  Mae Bell’s hips were tested after she had her only litter of puppies and we didn’t think they would be appropriate for another litter.  We had her spayed and she has been an ideal pet ever since.  Mae Bell has slept on our beds, guarded our home, and has been a companion to us and the other dogs at Ringsides Kennel. 

Mae Bells litter of puppies has lead to a friendly relationship with Andie Williams.  We call her our friend and mentor and after a glass or two of wine we call her other things too.  We bred Mae Bell to Ch Mtn Oaks Jethro in 2002 and she had 7 puppies in that breeding.  We experienced a life with puppies and dogs that continue to this day.  Mae Bell was an excellent mother and she still shows signs of motherhood when another bitch’s litter is on the ground.

Mae Bell passed away in 2011.  She was just a little shy of her 12th birthday.  We’ll miss her dearly.  Few animals have the impact on people like Mae Bell had on us.

Things We Can
Learn From A Dog

Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joy ride.

Allow the experience of fresh air &
the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy.

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.

When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.

Let others know when they've invaded your territory.

Take naps & stretch before rising.

Run, romp & play daily.

Eat with gusto & enthusiasm.

Be Loyal.

Never pretend to be something you're not.

If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.

When someone is having a bad day, be silent,
sit close by & nuzzle them gently.

Thrive on attention & let people touch you.

Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.

On hot days, drink lots of water & lay under a shady tree.

When you're happy, dance around & wag your entire body.

No matter how often you're scolded,
don't buy into the guilt thing & pout...
run right back & make friends.

Bond with your pack.

Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
