Some pictures taken after Thanksgiving.

I hope everyone has had an enjoyable Thanksgiving. We did and so did our Rottweilers. Their new favorite food is turkey giblets, stuffing and gravy. And then we had time for some new pictures. Our ever-popular couch gets a lot of workout. It is the only place big enough for one human and two Rottweilers and in that case the human happened to be ME. I managed to talk my wife into holding the camera and basically aiming it in the right direction and pressing the button to take the picture. That's a turkey dinner not a beer belly you see here.
Then it was my turn and I got this picture of my wife and her favorite companion, Axl, who seems to be very happy just being by her side.

Later on today my two friends paid me a visit in the den.

I spend a lot of time on the computer in my office and this place has become a frequent hangout for Ruff and Axl. I call the boy's club and I think they call it the quiet room. This is also where I keep the camera so I don't have to go more than arm's length to get it on short notice. Well, this afternoon Axl paid me another visit and while I was petting him and scratching his ears his buddy Ruff decided to interrupt us because he was a bit jealous and wanted his share. So first off Ruff starts giving Axl some ear washes and then Axl returns the favor. And while this was going on I was taking the pictures. This ear washing went back and forth several times.

An unexpected greeting.

I walked into the living room this afternoon and spotted Ruff laying on the couch. He turned his head to look at me and gave me such a look that my first reaction was to ask him to 'hold that pose till I get the camera'. And a few seconds later when I walked back in the room there he was, just as I had left him.

Happy Family.

Haven't posted anything for awhile due to the national emergency. I will try not to inject politics onto this blog but the last few weeks have been filled with great stress and much worry and the results of Nov. 6th have done nothing to eliminate it. We are all heading into dark days ahead.

But here at home I try to insulate the outside world from adding to our other troubles and I find our three Rottweilers do a wonderful job of relieving some of the stress. Well, two of them do most of the time. They make wonderful babysitters.
