Just a coincidence?
God does work in mysterious ways. We called our friends (Rommel's breeders) and told them of his passing. We said that we would love to have another dog/puppy in time, and in consideration of our other Mastiff who was quite sad and obviously missing him. They asked if we would consider taking Rommel's 14th month old cousin having just been recently returned by his owner who ended up not being able to manage such a large dog. We went over and met 'Bert', who is absolutely adorable and a bucketful of energy. He minds well on the leash, and with some bonding, will be well minding off of the leash. Since coming to our home, he's made friends with our other Mastiff. The only thing left is making friends with the goat who he chased all around our property after being 'introduced'...guess the goat didn't want to 'play'! (yes, the goat is fine) :)
Thank you all for your kind words regarding the loss of Rommel. Though Bert will never replace Rommel, he is quite a welcome addition to our menagerie!
(Bert is on the left, and our Kitty is on the right....it turns heads of our visitors when we call out....'here kitty, kitty, kitty'...and up runs this 160lb (11-12 stone) dog! :D)
