Here is our oldest ever Rottweiler Tara on her eleventh birthday recently. She is on the far right of the photo with some of her mates who came to her pool-party! They are Sid, Jana, Buddy, George, Bruno, Hudson, Rory and Bella. Good to see that Jayne had them all under control as usual!

We never thought that Tara would make this ripe old-age, particularly after she had a cruciate ligament injury at age 7. This took a long time to rehabilitate and her general fitness obviously suffered, but she has amazed us with her zest for life and still loves to go out for her morning walks on the meadows around our home.

Mind you, shortly after this photo was taken she took herself off to bed and left all the youngsters to enjoy themselves!
