Hello!

I wanted to find a great forum for my three girls and I! Hopefully, this forum will fit our needs. :)

I am the proud owner of a female lab mix we named Casey. She is fixed and never been breed and has a lifetime license/tattoo. She's all black and has a flash of white on her chest. She loves DH and I like no tomorrow and we love her too!

My next pup is a 5 month old baby Boxer girl I named Ava. She is a reversed brindle with a flash of white on her chest, a splash of white on her nose and four white tipped paws and a real sweet heart. She will also never be breed and is up for a spay on July the 8th, 2009. I will be microchipping her instead of tattooing.

Last but not least is our new dog Mia. Mia is said to be part Rot/pitbull. We got her from the neighblors 4 days ago. She is all black with a bit of white on her neck and chest. I would say she is about 1 yr old. She also will never be breed and will be getting fixed and microchipped soon after Ava. She is so sweet but stubborn too. :eek:

As for the name, LovedMyRotty, I did. I lost my beloved full blooded German Rotweiler Zachary on 3/4/09. :( He was 9 years old and the best rotty ever. I can't even begin to tell you how sad I am over his passing. I don't think I will ever get over him.

So, I'm sorry for being a huge windbag. Just wanted to tell you all about my babies and I look forward to being a part of this community! :cool:

Welcome to the forum you big windbag. lol
I would LOVE to see pictures of all of your dogs.
I am sorry to hear about Zachary. I know how hard it is to lose a much loved dog. I lost 2 girls a little over a year ago and I am still crushed by it.

Now, on with Ava's debut...
This pic was taken the evening we got her. She was 9 weeks I believe.


Here she is on 4/11/09 with her Mickey Mouse ears on! They always flip back like that!


And a more recent pic of her wearing one of her scarves...


Enjoy these and I'll go get some of Mia and my Big Boy Zachary.

Here is Mia...


This one is cute.


Here is another angle and I think I see the pit in her more. I could be wrong. All I know is that she is cute and as sweet as the day is long!

So cute! I love the swimming picture. That water looks so inviting too. :)
Love the Mickey Mouse ears too. I had a Doberman who's ears always did that. lol
Welcome Casey and Ava. I love Casey's smile. :)

Mia looks sort of Lab mix to me. I love the second shot with her looking over at the camera. She is like "Hey! Why is that thing in my face?" lol

And now on to my lost love Zachary.


I love this picture of my Big Boy. He was so loved.


To be honest, I love all these pics I have of my baby. I'm about in tears as I walk down memory lane but I love to show him off. I was so proud of him because he was such a good boy.

Here he is with his favorite squeaky toy, his hamburger.

Thanks for the compliments on my water. I love it and Casey does too! Casey also has the biggest smile in the Universe! She melts my heart every time she smiles at me when I get home.

I'm convinced Ava has crazy ears.

Mia does look lab doesn't she? I can see it too. Her momma was not a full blooded rotty but I am boggled as to what else is mixed with her. Could be lab. I do know Mia's father is a full blooded pit though.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my dogs. They are very loved! I'd be heart broken with out them. The only thing I have left of Zachary are the memories, pictures and his ashes. Most of our time together was the best years of my life but the last week of his life, I will never get over. RIP Big Boy! Until we meet again. Momma loves you so much!

Welcome to DF. All your dogs are beautiful. I'm sorry to hear about Zachary. I lost Jake going on 2 years October. I still have moments. He was such a gentle dog. When I was getting a bathroom redone - the workers loved him - when they had their lunch break on the lawn, there was Jake, hanging out in the shade with them. I think when you love an animal that much, you never forget them.

Welcome to DF! Your dogs are all lovely. Losing a beloved pet is hard. I still think of many I have had, usually with a smile because of something silly they did. You will love this place but beware...it is addicting! Oh, and windbags are welcome but pictures are mandatory! ;)

Welcome to DF! All of your dogs are precious, but I am particularly partial to your girl Ava. But I'm biased, I have two boxers...:rolleyes:

Thanks! I love posting pics so there won't be any problems there! :D

BoxMeIn, Ava is my very first boxer and let me tell ya, I love her so much! She is just the cutest lil lady and I love watching her do the boxer burn. I tell DH all the time, Look honey, it's a wild baby bore hog running through the yard! :D

She means so much to me. I got her very soon after Zachary passed away and although they are different sexes and breeds, I can see my Big Boy in her eyes, even on the way home from picking her up. It's like he sent me the perfect pup after he left me. He must have know she was the one. She looks at me and I swear, it's like having him back at times. She is a momma's girl. :cool:

This is what she did to my couch a few weeks ago.

LovedMyRottie First let me say.... Zachary was a very handsome boy. His personality shines through in the pictures you have shared. The first picture looks like his is full of himself and wanting to play, the second, (a Rotties eyes are always on the person they love) and the third, " well if mom is busy I guess I will have to play with this silly hamburger" lol They are all wonderful. I know just how hard this is for you. I have found peace in sharing stories about my dogs here on the forum. I am sure you will too. So glad you joined us. :)

Thank you Inga.

Zachary was the best Big Boy ever. We called him Big Boy all the time. So very genle he was. Sometimes, I can still hear him WOO WOOO WOOOOing at the neighbors. That's how I knew he was done doing his business.

I remember the first time I saw him. We were suppose to get a female and my hubby's friend said he didn't like the way the female looked so he brought us Zachary. He was so tiny at 6 weeks. He was just the cutest little guy and I fell in love with him. We would take naps through the day and he'd lay on my chest. Turns out, he always wanted to do that but he grew so fast so we had to stop cuz he'd suffocate you with 130lbs of pure love.

He loved his nubbins rubbed. If he could find someone to do it, he'd back up on ya like a semi and plant his butt right on your knee. Start rubbin the nubbins! He'd stick his tongue out like he were licking air cuz it felt so good to him. If you stopped, he'd turn to look at ya and do this Habba~ Habba~ Habba~ at you to keep going. Then he'd turn around and bury his head in your side.

Zachary was a talker. We used to play this game where he'd stare at me and I'd look at him real quick and turn away and he'd Habba~ at me and growl real low and stare some more and I'd look at him real quick and look away. We'd do that all the time and then it'd be rubbin nubbins time.

I wish he could still be here today. Life is not the same without him. My heart is just broken but I must be happy for him because he is not in pain anymore. That is the one thing that keeps me going, knowing I did the right thing for him and not for myself even though I suffer without him. It's like an unselfish love when you can do that for your best friend even though it kills you inside. I never had to put an animal down. He was my first one.

I know when the time came, I cried so hard for him the night before. I laid with him til 1 am and just sobbed on him. I knew the day had come. I always thought of the things I would say and all I could do was cry. My eyes were so swollen from all the tears I cried for him that night.

He went so fast though. The vet tech couldn't find his vein. She tried 3 times and he left her. He never cried. I had them give him a sedative to make it as easy and painless as possible for him. We waited for ten minutes and she injected him and as soon as it hit his vein, he had passed away and I told him I was so sorry and questioned what I had done to my baby. I just kept saying I'm so sorry! I'm so sorry!

I hope that he is up there watching over me while I live out the rest of my life. I hope that when it's my time he will be the first doggy I see. No words could ever express how heartbroken I truely am over his loss. The pain is unimaginable.

My Big Boy came home to me in a box a week after. He sits on my computer stand with an album my friend made for me, a few other pictures and a sympathy card from his vet. The inlay on his box reads: Dogs are not our whole lives but they make our lives whole -Roger Caras

It's so true. God knew what He was doing when he gave man a dog. An unconditional love He so gave man. I thanked Him on our last ride for Zachary and I told Him I loved him like like a child and it was time to give him back. I was so very blessed to have him and for that, I am thankful.

See, I told ya I was a windbag! :p:D *wipes tears* Love ya Big Boy!

It's alright LovedMyRottie, I am crying with you remembering my girl on that last day as well. I was so lucky that she was healthy right up until the end. She had, had a few fatty tumors taken off in the past but she was doing pretty darn good up until the end. She slept a lot more then she had when she was young but her mind was sharp and her heart still full of love until the end.
When the vet injected her she was in my arms and I was whispering how much I loved her and how proud of her I always was. My mother had come with me because I had to practically carry her in. (a tumor had blown out in her leg) I never looked up, she just died peacefully in my arms and I bawled. I could hear the vet and the tech and my mother crying as well. Inga had touched so many lives.
I can tell that your Zachary was that same kind of dog. Big and full of love. Maybe they are playing together right now. :)

Aw come on you guys...you got me blubbering like a baby!!! You will never forget Zachary but it will, in time, be easier to think of him with a big smile on your face (except for when you come across a post like this one!).
