Thank you, Misaki, for speaking out on behalf of rotties. We’ve been rescuing them for 28 years and adore the breed. Then again, we haven’t met a breed we didn’t love. Bless all the good people that take good care of their furry kids.

the Misadventures of Misaki

Yesterday when I was out walking with my buddy Sebastian we met up with Alfie, a rottweiler puppy. I’ve seen him before when I was out with daddy but I got to introduce him to mummy too.  He’s grown twice as big since I saw him last. He’s absolutely adorable with massive paws and is such a well behaved little guy. I know we’re going to be great friends when he gets bigger.

He was a bit wary of playing with me and Sebastian at first, so hung back to watch.

But he started to get a bit braver, first by taking a small dip in the stream and then joining us for a game of ‘chase me, I have the stick’ 🙂

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.

    I’ve met some lovely Rotties! It’s a shame that they have gained a bad reputation.

    • So true, Clowie. It’s one of the main reasons we’ve been rescuing them because so many land in kill shelters and in reality they make the most wonderful family additions. We’ve rescued a few different breeds as well, among them two chocolate labs (older guys) who had more attitude than our rotties. I truly believe a dog’s behavior is related and dependent on owner training/attitude and the environment they are raised in. You make that point so well in your posts, which is one of the reasons I love following you. 🙂

    Their eyes are so sweet! Nice to see a good story about them!

  9. That’s so cute. My perpetually anxious rescue dog has managed to make a few dog friends on our regular walk along the greenbelt. There’s a mastiff who barks its head off, but he’s just playing. I agree that it’s hard to dislike any breed of dog…

    • It is so great to be out walking, dog parking, etc. with our furry kids and watch them meet up with their friends. I love mastiff’s… big & so loveable. We lived near a pair (150-160 pounders) who we’d go and visit. They were like ponies. Give your fur baby a rubbie from me. 🙂
