HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. AXL YOU ARE 13 YEARS OLD TODAY


Well, today we had another birthday party but it wasn't the one I planned. It rained all day and I couldn't get out to the supermarket to get the "birthday cake" that I wanted. Our past Rottweiler birthdays usually involved a cake made from a meatloaf covered in mashed potatoes but old man Axl deserved something more special than that. Our adopted old Rottweiler Axl became 13-years old today (For the record, that's equivalent to 103 human years) and I wanted him to enjoy a filet mignon steak because of the love and devotion he has shown us in the last 6 years but as you can see in the photos, I had to settle for 13 meatballs instead. He did not seem to mind and I promised him he would get his steak. I just wish I had the idea sooner. 
And an uninvited guest who literally jumped the fence to crash his party. I had set up the gates to keep Ruff and Bessie out because Axl is so easy going they would have taken his food and he wouldn't complain.
But after she turned out to be his new best friend.
Next up will be Ruff's 8th birthday next month.
Just how old is the old Rottweiler in human years? Here is an interesting chart that explains the dog years to human years. It varies by size of breed and Axl is in the Giant Breed category. From the Business Insider c/o Yahoo Finance.
Since smaller breeds tend to live longer than larger breeds, it's important to calculate your dog's age according to the right category: small (20 pounds or less), medium (21-50 pounds), large (51-90 pounds), or giant (over 90 pounds).
