Surely you’ve heard the saying, “Love is a four-legged word.” Cersei, the four-year-old rottweiler whom I photographed for the upcoming FurKid Rescue pet calendar, is proof of that. Just ask her mom Mindy.
Although she was the one who entered Ceresi in to the calendar contest, Mindy, a self-proclaimed cat-person, did not grow up with dogs and therefore wasn’t really a fan of them. That is, until her husband Jesse convinced her that his dog needed a friend.
“I gave him four requirements that the new dog had to meet: cute ears, which to me at the time were floppy ears; calm temperament; the dog had to be as cute as an adult as it was as a puppy; and protection.”
When Jesse presented her with the idea of bringing home a rottweiler, she did her research and discovered that the breed met all of her requirements. The couple picked Cersei up at just six-weeks-old and a petite six pounds. She came home riding on Mindy’s lap and napped at her feet that evening. Mindy recalls that her sweet girl hasn’t left her side since.“[Cersei] has taught me so much about just being in the moment. If I am sitting outside with our three dogs, she will lay down right beside me, while the other two run around and we just enjoy each other’s company. About 95% of the time, when I look down at her, she is already staring up at me with love and adoration. I could not ask for a better companion.”“She is my best friend. My boo-bear. She is the reason I am now a dog lover. I never knew the love you could feel for a dog nor the love you could feel coming from [a] dog.”
See Cersei in the FurKid Rescue 2018 pet calendar, available online and through FurKid Rescue beginning in the fall. Check back soon to see our next calendar contest winner!
