I was just going through some of my photos from back home and I came across this one of Rueben, my Rottie, my big baby boy. He was about 6 months old in this picture.

We used to have a HUGE rottie. He was the sweetest, dumbest, most clumsy and affectionate dog ever. The knee problems I have now and will have for the rest of my life are due to his massive head of steel and inability to stop running on time. He once found a nest of baby rabbits that just barely had their eyes open. We were afraid he might trample them (he was not always aware of his giant snowshoe feet). All he did was drool all over them as he stood guard over them, viciously snapping at any insect that dared to get too near. By the time we had them all rescued from the floodgates that were his mouth, they were sopping wet. It's not easy to wash thick doggy drool off of baby bunnies.*sigh* I miss him! He was my father's dog, but he never did anything with him...I always did. Then I went away to university and my mom got tired of him spending day after day outside without any love or attention (she was very anti-dog and didn't want him in the first place) and gave him away to an elderly couple. I don't know what happened after that because then I moved to Asia. Anyway, that pic brings back fond memories of Fritz the Ditz.
