This is my baby Tilly. . . . . Two Shoes

Tilly (Two-Shoes), the Rottweiler
This is my baby Tilly (Two Shoes) - my son added the two shoes bit and it has stuck.
Tilly was born on 12/06/2011, she was unfortunate enough to have had two homes by the tender age of ten weeks, through no fault of her own, when she was given to us. She is our 2nd Rottie.
Our first Rottweiler was Buck, my handsome prince who sadly passed away 7 years ago at age 12. It really did take me a long time to consider getting another Rottie - I thought I would never find a dog as special as Buck.
Then along came Tilly, OMG what a clumsy funny little girl she is! She tears around our house like a maniac, shes got a thing for socks & slippers & even steals them from the vents in the wash basket.
Before "Tilly" I had a blossoming vegetable patch, carrots, broad beans & some beautiful blooms, oh no more! Within a month of Tilly's arrival, my garden was more like Glastonbury than Chelsea flower show - she has eaten EVERYTHING that once grew there. Carrots being her most favourite garden snack.
She is the most stubborn, awkward naughty dog, but oh so lovable and funny. She has stumbled into our hearts and home forever. Claire x
