Thank you, YorksG, people have been asking me for these and as you know, my tech skills are sadly lacking:p

Rotter is as proud of the pups as if she had given birth to them herself and plays beautifully with them, unfortunately in the photos of them playing she looks very fierce, although she is actually playing very gently - the only 'injury' is a wet ear. :oops:

I'm PaS's sister and we share the house and the dogs :D So she has a Rotter andd two Labs, and so o I :)
Congratulations to the 2 proud mums. Great photo, what a handsome trio. Do you have room for another sister? I'm available for adoption if it means I get to play with Labrador puppies!

Well they are just lovely and i'm pleased to hear they are still all getting on. I don't think your gorgeous Rottie looks fierce at all Pearl, she looks like she is proudly watching over her new family members.
I'm sure the Labs have helped enormously after your sad loss YorkG.

I'm so glad for both of you.
I had a lovely friend in Cornwall who had a Rottie and a cat . Watching them play was quite something, especially when the cat put his whole head in the Rotties mouth!

I think the size is part of the problem and they can be fear aggressive, that's why we worked so hard with the pair to socialize them early. They are big sorties though😎

all the rotties i have met have been very soppy . if i was living in an isolated spot and felt worried about being alone i would get a rottie , they look fierce but are lovely dogs...

That's why we got them, sister was often at home alone, when I stayed with my (now late) OH. The one we had to pts was the softest dog, bar one, that we have ever had, most of the rest were Labs. We knew they were lovely dogs because we 'accidentally' acquired a rescue Rott who was delightful. Sadly she had to be pts aged 8, that was cancer, too. Hence back to Labs. Plus we are not getting any younger and Rotters are BIG, too big really for one person to walk 2 together and you never know what the future holds.
