I'm Tess and I'm 6 years old. I have taken obedience classes since I was a puppy because dad heard that Rotties had to be reminded constantly of the boundaries. I know words like sit, stay, come and heel. I get real squirrely when I hear let's go, or walk, ride, and lets eat.
Most of the time I do what I want because my 'mom' Margaret is a softie but my 'dad' is not, so I have to watch my p's and q's when I'm out with him. I like to play with toys but only when mom and dad are home. I refuse to fetch or give up any toy I have in my mouth but, if dad insists, he can stick a finger down my throat to get stuff out or poke pills in. I don't bark much as that is undignified but I have to woof occasionally to let mom or dad know when I need more water or a toy is out of my reach.
