Training a new babysitter. I think it comes in the DNA.

Good babysitters are hard to come by. Especially the nursemaid variety. I ought to know, I've gone through four of them in the last three years. Luckily, we have our three Rottweilers who are more than willing to take the job, but it always seems the female Rotts have a special talent for the work. I think you have seen the help I get tying my wife's shoes in the morning to see I have no trouble finding volunteers.

So it was yesterday afternoon. I spotted Bess doing something I hadn't seen her do before. She jumped onto the small couch next to Jacqueline's recliner and seemed to be in a particularly loving mood.
Bess can be a real sweetheart when she wants to as well as the Tomboy she enjoys being most of the time.


  1. What a good girl, Bess is!

  2. I discovered your blog today and read back to the when you adopted Bess. I loved reading your posts and seeing all your pictures. I recently became a rottweiler owner, which is how I discovered this blog. It's great to see someone else enjoying their rottie - and all of the silly tendencies that come with them - as much as I love my little Zeke. I look forward to reading more!

    1. Silly tendencies is almost an understatement. They are big clowns and I think they act that way to entertain us. Thank you for the nice comments.
