Some new pictures of our happy crew.

Here is a nice shot of two of our Rotties. The smaller one in the background was a Christmas gift and the larger one in the foreground is our pride and joy. His name is Ruff.
This next picture is our oldest Rottweiler, Axl, whom we adopted 2 1/2 years ago when he was almost 8 years old. I know when he is happy because he smiles and his eyes seem to twinkle.
And here is Axl and Ruff. They have been best friends since the day we brought Axl into our home. Axl is 10 1/2 years old now and Ruff is only 5 and they have two different personalities. Ruff is very strong and filled with boundless energy, always excited and just waiting to give anyone he meets a ton of kisses. Axl is quiet, gentle and reserved. I'm not sure if he is the product of his training as a service dog or his breeding but he has been a perfect companion to my wife and seems to know how much she needs him.
Axl takes lots of naps all day long because he works so hard.
And here is a picture taken today of the two boys taking an after-breakfast nap on a rainy Sunday morning. And why not? There's nothing else to do when the weather outside is nasty.



  1. So adorable. My pretty girl rott sleeps like that too. :)

  2. Sir,

    Your Rotts are outstanding. I wish my little Sasha would turn-out to be like them. My blog account has been dormant for 3 years. But you fascinated me with your Rotts. I can't help but appreciate them through this dormant blog account. By the way, I am Dave from the Philippines.

  4. Love these photos. So typical of a household where the Rotties are adored. Axl is so handsome and I am so impressed that he's a service dog. That's wonderful for your wife. I salute you for having three of these magnificent companions. I have one right now I know how much work, love and expense they require. The joy and love they bring to your life however is immeasurable. I understand when you say they seem to know your wife is unwell. I believe they intrinsically do. My boy Kaiser is quick to respond to my emotions - particularly if I am sad. They really such a gift.

  5. Forgot to mention that I would love to curl up inbetween them on that couch with some treats!
