Rottweiler Love, Day 4 Whole Lotta Love
Dasko is my third rottie in the last 30 years. Our first one was Heidi and the grands loved her. She traveled with us in our conversion van and always laid where she could look out the window. She loved chicken livers and could smell when we got close to a KFC. She was so gentle with the special needs children I worked with and they loved her. She was well trained and would bark on command, thus solving math problems. My Ben used to say, "Now don't tell Heidi, she is a dog". Unfortunately I have no pictures on my computer.
The second addition was Hillary,aka Hellya. And she was !
Now you know the third one. He is the gentlest, sweetest one I have ever had. BTW, you know the story of how I got him.(The girl who gave him to me, is the one we bought Hillary from. Curtis and I used to look at each other and say,"We paid good money for this".) We loved her though and she us. Dasko. What can I say about him, that you don't already know. Nothing, so I will just show you some pictures. My friend Carol, calls him a clown, because he is so funny.
I will share this little story. Before Hillary died I had her and Dasko, in my van at the gas station. I had gone into pay and some man came in and asked,"Who owns that van with those rottweilers in it?" It scared me and I said, "I do why?" He just shook his head said,"Pardon me mam, but you don't look like a rottwieler person!"
But I am and it makes me so sad that they get such a bad rap.
This little(lol) fella follows every move I make. Room to room, chair to chair. Sometimes he just lays his head on my lap for a few minutes. Sometimes at my feet where I couldn't move if I wanted too. He is always where I am. I have a Whole Lotta Love for him.
Thanks for coming Through My Back Door where life is good and there is a Whole Lotta Love for this rottweiler.
PS: My friend Shirley is not a dog lover, and she loves this big boy so much. she will say, "Tell Dasko it's Aunt Shirley," when she is on the phone. lol
PSS: I will give you an update on Tamra after she starts her chemo. Please continue to pray for her
