The Chronicles of Louis the VII Rottweiler

Louie is settling in nicely.  We could not have asked for a better dog, he is quiet, polite, listens very well and is eager to please.  He had his Vet check (which he wasn't too crazy about) and weighed in at a whopping 93lbs!  We thought maybe 85, boy were we wrong.  Aside from an ear infection he is in great health.  The vet put him at 1 1/2years which is what we thought.

We are doing our best to make him feel at home and show him the sights and sounds of his new community here in Destin.  The Husband took him to get his oil changed (his car's, not Louie's).

Louie meets Brad, our great mechanic.  Brad finds just the right spot to scratch, Louis approves!

Louie isn't as much a fan of the Beetle as he is of cooling off.

His new friends, Max, the big guy and Cooper along with our neighbor Dave, welcome Louie to the neighborhood with open paws.  Max was Lily's boyfriend, she was quite smitten with his handsome features.  I'm sure she is smiling down on the trio.

Even though he listens very well and has already learned new commands readily, Louie is signed up for an intermediate training  class beginning on July 7th.  Since he will be an only dog, we want him to have as much interaction with pets and people as possible.

Only 5 days into his new life, there is so much more ahead, stay tuned for more Chronicles of Louis the VII Rottweiler.


  1. We are looking forward to more of the chronicles of Louis the VII Rottweiler. He looks well settled. Have a great weekend!
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh he's such a good looking guy! And he has the stub-tail like Gizmo had. As he settles in and gets more comfortable it will wag - so cute. Obedience is a great idea. He'll feel more confident and more bonded to you guys. I'm so happy that you found each other! (one and a half, and he listens? OMD!!)

  3. He is magnificent! I hope he enjoys school.
