I got my first Rottweiler in 1981 but I no longer exhibit or breed them. Even though Kennel Club registrations have dropped dramatically in recent years, I feel that there are still far too many being bred in the UK to ensure that puppies are placed in suitable homes. A look at the number of Rottweilers in the welfare societies waiting for permanent homes will indicate that this noble breed deserves better.
However, after 31 years of being involved with the breed they still continue to be a part of my life, and my two Rottweiler companions at the moment are: Amber (Thewina Little White Dove over Tebrun) and Inca (Herburger Syrah at Tebrun). They are both senior citizens in the Tebrun household now and obviously my thoughts are turning to what must be in the not to distant future. The question in my mind is: could I bear to be separated from this wonderful breed if Amber and Inca are to be my last Rottweiler companions?
UPDATE: Sadly, Inca crossed the bridge on Monday 5th November 2012.

FURTHER UPDATE: I felt that Rottweilers have played too great a part of my life to
find myself without one, so while hoping that 13 year-
