So sorry for your loss.
Thanks for the additional welcomes, so nice to meet you all.
And thanks Kpablo, sending Dresden and Krupp to the Bridge was the hardest thing I have ever done, but they both crashed at once, within a week of each other. They were a totally bonded pair, so in a way it was a blessing for them to go together, but there is still a hole in my heart that was left by the 2 best Rotties I have ever had. I miss them every day, and dear Fritz is helping us move forward.
Dres and Krupp left their daughter, Luger, behind, she is 9.
Fritz has a bit too much puppy enthusiasm for her tastes, but has helped bring her out of her deep grief and keeps her company now.
He is such a sensitive loving boy, and is so very gentle around her, but she just doesn't want to run and play with him the way he expects.
We are all trying to adjust, and our new family member is so very welcome in our home, he has moved into a niche full of waiting love.
We are all trying to learn together how to fill each others needs and wants.
Fritz is a bundle of energy compared to the mellow Rotties, but he makes me smile every day, (ALL day, lol), with his endless kisses and nudges.
We are lucky to have found him, he is an awesome pup.
He is getting a lot better about letting me out of his sight for a few minutes here and there, and is gaining confidence that I will come back if I leave the room.
Did I mention that he is NOT a chewer or house destroyer?
We lucked out for sure, as he had been largely abandoned to his old back yard or crate when his other family got too busy for him.
