It was really a 'getting to know you' visit. We were assessed as well: how do the dogs respond towards us. Mom-to-be Gaia and Dad-to-be Earl were very friendly and apparently we (my wife and I) had the correct response to the dogs.

    At the end of the visit, we were allowed to be on the list for a pup from Gaia's litter, later this year or early next year. Her first litter. She'll be nearly 3 y/old then. Her owners don't want to have her more than two litters during her life.

    We don't mind being scrutinised like this. It's like adopting a child and I think it's good when someone looks at you sees you as-an-dog-owner-to-be.

    M

    EDIT: About 24hrs later now. My wife has decided that she prefers a bitch. Which is fine by me. Some of the males we've seen are really massive. And despite all being good-mannered and well-behaving, males a lot of dog to handle! I developed a soft spot for a male called Colin we'd seen at another breeder's farm. His tan colour was almost chocolate and it was a well-built heavyweight. Very impressive. But too much for my wife, I suppose. Colin, my son and I were best pals within seconds. The owner noticed that Colin is normally not an easy guy to approach. "He selects you, not the other way around!" I really would have liked to have a pup with Colin as the dad. Sadly, Colin wasn't up to the rottweiler standards (too dark).

    We've received a questionair from the breeder, asking us all sort of things. Like: 'do you prefer and bitch or male' and 'what kind of house/garden do you have?', but also 'are you aware that we insist on the fact that you go to a puppy class with your rottweiler and: '...we urge you to do an obedience class after puppy class.' And 'what puppy class would you like to attend; we are willing to advise you.'

    Perhaps over the top? Well, knowing that rottweilers have a certain 'image', it's good that the breeder emphasises the nessesity of proper dog-education. During our visit, the breeder told us -among others- that he won't sell a dog to people living in an apartment and /or with a busy job. "A rottweiler is a working dog. And the owner has to work twice as hard as the dog!" Making clear that it's not an ornament... I like that straight approach.

    M.
    My mum and stepdad had a massive Rottie, who was the loveliest dog. Genuinely, a big cuddly teddy bear and I miss him to this day, almost a decade since he passed away. He was incredibly strong and I hate to think what an ill-disciplined one would be like on a lead. Excellent that you're going in with your eyes open. :)

    My eldest is rather fond of our dogs and last year for her birthday had a "Maggie cake" (the other dog). This year she wanted a "Lottie cake". So, here's her Lottie cake with Lottie herself. Perhaps a slightly serious expression on the cake, but then Lottie is a serious dog. The house doesn't protect itself from cats and the things that are in the TV when it is switched off and people go up the stairs....

    Been a long while since I posted in here, but I couldn’t fail to share this - Gracie, fast asleep, chasing dream-squirrels while I was working yesterday...

    Dot complete with a dirty old wellington boot she has dragged onto her armchair.

    She often likes something of ours close to her, although the boot belongs to my youngest son's gf.

    Cheers,
    Neil.

    Ok that looks dangerous / you should invest in a muzzle for that beast - if you find a good one let me know so I can apply it to this killer

    She’s a miniature Schnauzer / Bichon Frisée cross. Absolutely wonderful temperament.

    This particular canine resting posture with legs extended to the rear whilst lying on the ground is called `splooting`;



    ...and this one is the `excuse me, this is my sofa....`;

    Eric decided that he was ready for a close-up. I think Gracie felt a little jealous...

    We were up in Sutherland in the Highlands. Was lucky with the weather and had a great time. The dogs loved the forest walks and the deserted beaches.

    A lot of mischief lies behind those meltingly dark eyes I suspect!

    Barney is 8 years old this month, which makes him an old man in Newfoundland terms. His back hips are not good and he doesn't go for walks anymore, but he is still a happy chap, well loved and does enjoy a good sleep.
