A meaningful way to honor a four-legged friend while supporting mastiff health research and rescue. Our mastiffs touch our lives in so many ways and here is a way to commemorate all that your mastiff has done for you, your family and the community.
Give in memory of your Mastiff or as a way to celebrate his or her recent achievement: getting certified as a therapy dog perhaps?
Tell the world about your newly adopted Mastiff from a rescue group or a shelter?
Celebrate the life of your beloved Mastiff, who has made the journey over the Rainbow Bridge.
There are many milestones in your Mastiffs life and here is a place to share their stories with the world!
We accept donations of any amount to have your mastiff featured on our website. And remember - your donation is tax deductible and will go directly to our annual picnic fund which will benefit mastiff health research and rescue.
Once you have completed your donation please email us your favorite photo of your tribute, his or her full name and titles, as well as a short story about your tribute to MastiffPicnic@gmail.com
Your tribute will be added to the website as soon as we confirm your donation and receive your story.
Leo Felicetti, age 9, of Shaffer Lane, Morgantown, WV, completed his earthly journey and crossed over Rainbow Bridge at 2:25 p.m. on Saturday, February 9, 2019 from Cheat Lake Animal Hospital with family by his side following a courageous battle with cancer.
Born April 28, 2009, Leo was the beloved pet companion of Valerie Felicetti and Dan Fry, of Cheat Lake.
Leo never met a stranger. He was loved by everyone he met. He was a therapy dog and visited several nursing facilities with his mom who is a physical therapist.
Leo, a gentle giant, loved when people hugged him, kissed him and needed him. His best friend was his toy elephant. Leo was proud to take part in raising money for Mastiff rescue and research through the Northeast Mastiff Picnic each year. Leo had an immense fan base and will be greatly missed by his family and many friends and followers. Donations were made in his memory to the Mastiff Picnic to continue the work he enjoyed so much.
With a completely shattered heart, I said goodbye to my very special girl today. I would like to tell you a little about her life. She was always such a busy girl, always on the move, looking for what was next for her. She was the best girl, kind and loving and never met a stranger. She let any dog I brought home feel comfortable,sharing her bed and her toys. Her heart made her who she was and that same heart carried her to the Rainbow Bridge. I will love and miss you forever.....See you at the Bridge Angie.💔🐾🌈
An incredibly special girl forever in our hearts.
Brutus was our first mastiff. He was 23 lbs at 8 weeks when we brought him home in a snowstorm. He loved the winter and eating the snow off the deck furniture. We gave him the run of the house and he never chewed on anything except his toys! He grew to 240 lbs but still thought he could fit in your lap! He loved to nibble your nose and earlobe! He would nurse on his hedgehog and fall asleep with it in his mouth. He especially loved children and small dogs. He was stoic in his old age! We miss him dearly including his snoring and drooling! Love you Bruty!! You will never be forgotten!!

In honor of Mack, our first Mastiff.
Buck is the reason the Mastiff Picnic exists today and is our official mascot! Buck is cystinuria positive and he is a huge reason why we are trying to do so much for cystinuria research. Other than my husband, he is the love of my life! Outgoing and silly, he is a Jack Russell trapped in a Mastiff's body! This is all for you Buck Fish, I love you.

Morrigan was my first mastiff, and through her, I was introduced to this magnificent breed! She taught me so much about love, loyalty and compassion and captured a piece of my heart almost instantly. I count myself very lucky to have purchased well, and her parents were fully health tested. She passed away in January of 2009. I still miss her every single day.
Capone was my very first English Mastiff ever. He was so loving and obedient that I fell in love with him instantly! I had him home for about three weeks and had my niece go back and buy his littermate and brother Lennox. They are so funny together, they are fully aware they are brothers! Capone is attached to my hip 100% of the time, he has even traveled to Florida from Ohio with me twice since he was a pup. I love him more than words can say. I will never own another breed again!
