Major

Man's best friend. Our bestfriend. Major, a pure Rottweiler was only 4 months old when we got him. He has been with us for years and he is practically part of the family.


When he turned 6 months, we got him a trainer for basic obedience. Having a big dog is not easy. A dog as heavy as Major should be well trained, otherwise, he can easily drag you around even if you have him on a leash. His basic obedience training included following the common commands "Come", "No", "Sit", "Up".


His simple pleasures, Optima dogfood and Fita treats!


Major eats once a day, every morning. We hold his plate up to him every time because that's the way he wants it. Ain't he a spoiled one!


Now at 6 years old, Major is great buddy. He plays with us and takes walks with us. He is always delighted to see us come home from work everyday. He diligently guards us in our sleep every single night.


Though we sometimes get too busy with work and spend less time with him, he never complains. His loyalty remains unfaltering, his love unwavering.


Without a doubt, a dog is a man's bestfriend.

  8. What a handsome pooch!

    I fed my cocker spaniel mainly Eukananuba and he lasted 17 years, which surprised even his vet. Eukanuba even sent him some freebies for being a loyal customer when I wrote them about him. But eventually, he got too old and died.

  10. sarap may doggie ano, twinnie?

    now that our baby is (almost) a lady (12 y/o), we're "dog-sitting" a 4 year old female shih-tzu and she's the first one to greet me every morning when i go down the stairs and the first one to greet me (again) whenever i come home. so loyal. so sweet

  13. hey joe! nice of you to drop by! yea, ok naman ang Optima i think. it is not a local brand actually. one sack a month si major. not bad. ang Optima nya is the less protein variety na. for older dogs daw.
    o sige, promise yan ha, pasalubong. kahit wala na ako, naks! basta si major meron, hehehe... keep in touch! ps. ok yung Oldies music mo sa blog mo a. neat!
