I've never had a rottie....but they are wonderful large, powerful, protective dogs.

Yeah we bought one - going to get her next weekend

I can't believe I'm going thur the puppy stage again - the last dog was a rescue - 2yrs old - and housebroken - no chewing.

My last puppy was 12 years ago - well I do crate training

I already have doc appolntment next Tues - the stool sample - the whole gambit

Already bought the new type wire crate at Walmart - just have to put something inside to make it half it size til she grows - which will be fast

They are feeding her "Puppy Chow" which is such junk - so I already bought a small bag of that and a small bag of what I want to feed her - Got to wean her off Puppy Chow fast

Its been so long since I got a puppy - forgot how much to feed per day - so talked to vet yesterday so I knew what to do - you think you remember this stuff - but I totally forgot - but I wouldn't forget how to feed an infant.

I don't know if I told you guys but her name is Sadie........ooh I'm getting excited

Just so you know - the crate is 2 feet from sliding glass door (opening)
