Rottweiler Pictures: Ella

She was a surprise - the best gift I have ever received in my entire life.

She thinks she is a lapdog.

She never growls if you are trying to take her favorite marrow bone away.

She doesn't like running water, but she loves boiled eggs.

She wags her whole body when either one of us gets home from work.

She will not approach her dinner until we give her the "okay".

She's horrible at Agility, but she likes the tunnels.

She likes to sleep in.

She is not allowed in bed, but she loves it when I lend her one of our pillows.

She snores.

She passes gas.

Tag of war is her favorite game, and she always lets go when I command, "Leave it".

She has a terrifying growl, yet not a mean bone in her body.

She doesn't ruin our socks, but she likes keeping one or two on her blanket.

She always hops for loves when she sees us hugging.

She smiles for me every day.

We are her people, and she is our Rottweiler dog.

She looks like such a great dog. I really liked the picture of her on a walk and looking back at the camera. It's like she was smiling back at you!

I love the picture of the feet. Ella is a beautiful dog. My dogs like my socks and slippers too, but don't destroy them, either. They just like to run around the house with them. Occasionally, one will get taken outside!

Such a beautiful dog! Rotties are amazing creatures. I wrote about my Rotties in my new book Dog-Ma, The Zen of Slobber. DogmaTheBook.com. I think you would like it.

Check it out!

Good to see the pictures that made my day (no, it is not freezing here in Mississauga, Ontario and it will be well above freezing tomorrow and the day after). Got some lessons on how to take with my boy :-)

What a beautiful dog. I love the photos. Just what I needed to cheer up a freezing January day. My neighbor has a rottweiler called Max and he is so mischievous and playful. Great hub. Voted up and beautiful.

She is so beautiful, first photo on--I just wanted to hug her. I love animals, and I have a Pomeranian, he lets us live with him in our house. He is so spoiled.

Ella is a lovely name for a beautiful animal. Yes, special love comes with four paws, and a cold nose.

Thank you for sharing this hub--it made me smile.

This is one pretty dog. Just beautiful.

I enjoyed the photos. Ella is a beautiful dog. The list of Ella's traits and behaviors is a wonderful description of why she's the perfect dog for you (and you're the perfect humans for her).

My favorite pics are Ella smelling the flowers and the feet all lined up, shoes on either side of paws.

Voted UP, AWESOME and BEAUTIFUL....Thanks for sharing.
