Rottweiler Wednesday

A few pics of Boots and her favorite cousin, Inca, when she came to stay with us last month:
Being only 2 months apart, they are perfect playmates for each other.  Tons of energy!
Inca had a very bad weekend last weekend. She was bitten by a rattlesnake on Saturday while playing ball with her mom. They had to drive 45 minutes to get to a vet that could treat her.  She was struck on the tongue and it swelled up so much that it blocked off her airway and they were lucky to get to the vet in time.  SCARY, to say the least.

The good news is, she got out of the hospital yesterday and is doing great!  She and Boots will be back in the round pen tearing it up in no time. 

Happy Rottweiler Wednesday!  Be sure to hug your dog today.  :)

Poor Inca. Glad she is doing good.

Boots needs an energetic playmate.

Glad that Inca is better; Boots needs a companion her size to work off all that energy!

Puppies love to have friends :)

So glad to hear Inca is ok. That must have been terrifying!

It's so much fun to watch dogs playing together. We were talking about getting a playmate for Tucker last night!

So...did Inca stick her tongue out at the snake?! Just joking.. although it sounds like it was no joking matter. How scary! Glad she's OK.
