Folks, but we're not breeding Rotties at this time. We are having
to (at least temporarily) conform to the unfounded whims of the media
and insurance companies who insist on categorizing this wonderful,
intelligent and loving animal as "Dangerous"! The first
time that "Big Bubba" came up to me with a baby bird held
gently in his mouth because it had fallen out of the nest, it amazed
me. Another time, he located one of my lost earrings and dropped it
gently at my feet. I have heard and seen him whine to me because wild
songbirds were eating from his dish and wouldn't "let him"
near it! Just imagine a 140-lb. rottweiler unwilling to chase a 3-ounce
bird from his dish! Dangerous? I think NOT! However, let somebody
raise their voice to ME or appear to threaten someone in the family,
they had better start back-peddling quickly. The Rottie Barking-Bounce
is something to behold. When my son was jogging with Bubba, a German
Shephard charged, and Bubba sent him packing! When a burglar tried
to break in through the window, Bubba greeted him from the inside
and scared him away. Our rotties groom our cats and even get along
with the wild peacocks that roam the area.
and when society regains it's sanity and realizes that irresponsible
breeders and bad owners cause dangerous dogs (even little dogs can
do damage), our situation might change. I truly hope that happens,
because with careful selection and proper breeding and socializing,
rotties can become a great asset to the family. This noble Roman War
Dog does not deserve the reputation of a viscious criminal canine,
and owners with no history of dog problems should not be penalized
by insurance companies and the media.
YOU MAY QUOTE ME ON THIS!
In Loving Memory ~
May 17, 1998, Damchen Olga Von Geneva passed away. She was
the "wife" of Baron Luger Von Geneva (deceased),
and daughter of Hans Von Hertzberg and Cona the Destroyer.
Olga was a charming, gentle Rottweiler, who brought up her
children to be respectful, obedient citizens. She had won
the hearts of everyone who met her, and will be sadly missed.
God-speed, Olga. We will always love you.
