My best dog ever to date, Bonnie, a pure breed Rotty died 12 years ago. She was one staunch dog.

Weve just replaced her with a chocolete Lab, Cocoa. Only 12 weeks old and a real fast learner.

that one won't be small enough to sit on the stelvio for long! ;D

She'll grow into that Stelvio soon enough.  You may be able to give her old tires to chew on.  Seriously!  Keep her well exercised (run her butt off once or twice a day) and make sure she has something to chew on that amuses her.  Let her know who it the boss and don't let your better half spoil her.  Rottweilers are working dogs.  Make sure both of them know it.

Update:

Here's Emma's pup and adult photos.  She will soon be 2.  Man, time flies.  Emma is the chicken/family guard dog and companion that we thought she would be.  She is now a big Teddy Bear though.  She knows no strangers.  Just today, I had her in the vet for a checkup and all the other dogs were barking at her (probably scared), but she just wagged her nub and behaved. All the other owners complimented me on how docile she is.  I advised them that she's a different animal when it's dark outside and all her family is in the house.  Nice feeling when others envy your dog and their behavior over their yapping canines.

Sorry for the rant.  I really love my dog.

2 months old - 12 lbs and a clean bill of health.

Reminds me of the rotties my brother had... best dogs I have known... loved to play, well behaved, not a mean bone in their body (except if they ate a burglar or something) :)
I miss those doggies... waiting for him to get a new one.

I guess you have to be the right owner for the breed... I also knew one that was a vicious prick... but I also know the owners did not treat the dog well...

Anyway, Im glad someone other than my bro can raise a well behaved rottie... :P

This almost seems impossible for me to write.  We discovered about 3 months ago that Emma has lymphoma.  She's not even 5 years old.  Our whole house is a wreck this week.  I will probably have to have her put down tomorrow or Wednesday. She can barely breath and is just laying around and wont eat/drink.  I've owned lots of pets in my life, but she has been the best.  Looking back at this thread has been rough.  Thanks for reading/listening.

So sorry, Luap. 

Kathi is even more attached to dogs and their place in a home, and will start crying if I ask her to read this thread.  I will anyway, because it helps when others help with that sort of pain.

Dear Friend, It would be glib of me to write ‘sorry, I know how you feel”.
I don’t. I can’t. I do empathize. Saying farewell to an entity that has ingrained their feelings and emotions with yours is so very painful. Nothing and no one can salve that hurt. I breed Bernese Mountain Dogs; a breed of notoriously short life span. I’ve felt the death of loved ones far too often. Every once in a while you meet puppy destined to be your heart dog. The one who centers on your every breath, the one who reads your ups and downs like a topographic map. Centavo was my first heart dog. I lay in the dirt cradling him until we could get him to our vet. He’d eaten something that caused a hemorrhage. He died in my arms just 2 years old. Blessed are those who have shared the love of a dog. I truly understand your pain. Condolences.
Don.

Dang, Luap. I hate reading this. Its amazing how a "dumb animal" can become a loyal friend and family member. I don't remember who said it, but a good dog is better people than most people. I'm truly sorry for your loss.

 I am so sorry to read this Luap.   I had to put my beloved Magic down on 21 June 2014.  The Christmas ornament to remember her by arrived today. I still grieve and feel her absence. While they may leave your presence, they never leave your heart.  I feel your pain Luap, yes I do.  I am so sorry to hear about this.   :'(

A perfect sentiment.

Luap, we're very sorry to hear about Emma.  Having put our Kayla down the Saturday before Christmas, after a year of her fighting cancer was a very sad but sympathetic to do.  Our kids grew up with her.  We were all present and petting her as she just put her head down and went to sleep for the last time.  I believe that she knew it was time and was ready.

Sincere condolences to you and yours.

Laup,
So sorry to read this, and sorry for your loss.    We had to have our six year old lab put down 13 years ago, and to this day, it is one of the hardest things I ever had to do.

A dog's love is unconditional.   When you have a dog at home, there is always someone happy to see you when you get home.

Thank guys for the kind words.  She's still with us.  She's having a great day today and is acting pretty well.  We might get to spend a little more time with her afterall.  I do appreciate the words and the like-heartedness of fellow pet lovers.

Luap,

     I literally got a pain in my stomach after reading about Emma's lymphoma. Cherish the days with her friend. We had to put down "The Amazing Mini" (brown/rust Min Pin) after only 3 years because she was born with a liver issue. That was nearly 10 years ago. We still regularly remember her and tear up when we do.

     Will there be dogs in heaven, and will you see them again? IMHO, absolutely YES! Any of God's beautiful and innocent creations will have a place their.
