32. She's a beauty!

Mr. Dixie & I have only ever had rotties. I've had dogs my entire life but my first rottie was the one he had when we first started dating 27 years ago. I am in completely love with the breed. They are very smart and have a wonderful sense of humor.

It's interesting that you mention your trepidation about getting a large breed dog with an unknown upbringing. We were just talking about that the other day and I told my husband the same thing. (Our three rotties all came to us as pups.) The thing about rotties is, they are not your dog, you are their people. My boy takes my whole hand or my forearm arm in his mouth when we're playing but he never hurts me. And I know he won't, either. I trust him because I've raised him from a pup. I don't know that I'd be so comfortable with those teeth if I hadn't. I think your "playing with a running chainsaw" analogy is perfect.

Anyway, your girl is gorgeous! I wish you all, Amy included, many years of love and laughter together.
