I was taking a hot bath tonight and the dogs were doing their own thing. Everyone (people and dogs)were sleeping when I got in the tub. Anyway I am laying there relaxing with my eyes closed. I had my head part way underwater and I was humming a song. I opened my eyes and my male Rott Diesel was standing there looking at me. I kept on humming and noticed he was looking at me funny. I sat up and my hair was all wet and I was still humming and he got very stiff and all of his hair came up on his back and he started showing everyone of those pearly whites and was very deeply growling at me!!! I starting laughing and he starting barking and backing up. He was confused and scared. He had no idea who or what I was. He doesnt have a mean bone in his body. He will bark at things out in the yard or if someone comes to the door but as soon as you try to approach him he runs away.(unless he knows you or I am there then he is all over you) Well anyway after I got my good laugh out of him tonight I finally said his name and he realized it was me and started dancing around wagging his whole butt and licked my face like crazy. It was so funny that he was trying so hard to be protective. Of course all of the other dogs just looked at him like he was crazy.
what a nut !! reminds me of when i was little. we had a gsd named max. one night my dad came home from work. it was raining out so he came in the door wearing his trenchcoat and a hat. our dog max didn't recognize him and started growling and lunging for him. luckily max realized before he bit that it was my dad. scared the heart out of my dad and thats hard to do !!
