Some people can't leave a sleeping Rottweiler alone.

Here we are in the middle of a cold Saturday afternoon and only a Rottweiler knows how to deal with it. Take a nap. But some people, namely my wife Jackie, can't leave things as they are. Poor Axl, he is such a wonderful old Rottweiler, all he wants to do is to sleep. He takes after breakfast naps, after lunch naps and after dinner naps every day. And after going out the fresh air seems to make him even more sleepy. We already took the three Rotts for a ride in the car today when I went to Walgreens to pick up some medicine. They love to go through the drive-thru and meet the people on the other side of the window. Then after we got home there was nothing else to do.
But you all know that moms can't leave things alone. They worry about everything. Like maybe the old guy will fall off the couch or something. Or maybe he was cold so she would get him his blankie to keep him warm as she has done before on many occasions.


  1. I can totally understand. Back in the 90s I lived and worked in Hollywood and had a Rottweiler named Zack. He went EVERYWHERE with me. Even riding shotgun while 'cruising the strip' on Saturday nights. He was a 150 pounds of slobering love. Everyone knew and loved Zack, and of course he was a major chic magnet. He lived a rockstar life. When he passed away a friend of mine was in a local band and that weekend they played at The Whisky A Go-Go. They dedicated 'Knockin On Heavens Door' to Zack. There wasnt a dry eye in the house.....

    1. I sat here this morning going through some old photos from 2008 and they all reminded me of the times when our house was filled with smiles. That what good memories are supposed to do. So I shared them on my Facebook page.
