He was one of the best on and off the table.

I'll miss him.

Cos & The Evil One.

Are you able to attach photos to e-Mails?

If you are, just say so, & I'll PM you my e-Mail address as a temporary measure, send me the photos & I'll upload them until you get sorted.

Or, in the case of Cos, stick them on Twitter & I'll copy them from there.  I already "Follow" you, as you know. 

Cheers Teeks sent u a few pics on the Tweeter thingy x

I remember being shit scared the first time I saw Ronnie.

Have a Cane Corso now who sounds very similar to Zeus. Huge and mean looking but just an absolute sweetheart of a hound.

I’ve really loved this journey and learning experience with bigger breed dogs.

Did you think you would get another dog once Ronnie passed away?

He was a bit of a beast though was big Ron. Such a loving boy with those he knew but also incredibly unpredictable with strangers. Perfect 99% of the time but as you come across more than 100 people on your daily walk there's no choice but to watch him like a hawk 100% of the time. I have to admit I was constantly on edge if we were in public and there were a lot of people around, not so much as he got to 7+ years old but even then you can never forget the odd time he showed what he was capable of in his early days.

Zeus is so much easier around people as he's just a softy. This doesn't mean he's better than Ronnie, just different. There were elements of Ronnie that were far better than Zeus, his recall and lead walking for example were amazing. I have to admit though it's lovely being able to go to the pub with him and have a couple of steady pints with the lads.

I had a dog break for about a year and a half after Ronnie died but I always knew I'd get another. For a while the freedom was nice, being able to do anything without first considering how it affected the dog was great and also going to the gym at whatever time suited my was good. I was also in the process of doing up a house which being dog free made much easier.

If Zeus hadn't come along I'd probably have been getting one around now anyway. I wasn't sure what to get and to be honest it probably wouldn't be a Rottie. My mum really didn't want me getting a big dog as she's quite weary of them so me going for a German Shepherd or Rottie wasn't going down too well.

She was horrified when she knew I was getting Zeus but then after she met him a few times she absolutely loves him and even plays fetch with him in the garden Smiley

Have you had your Cane Corso from a pup?


I forget just how big Ronnie was but he was big and mean looking. Much against my wishes, I was never allowed a dog as a kid and so when I almost met Ronnie my energy would have been nervous. No one picks up and feeds off of energy better than dogs so it was probably best at that time I never really got to pet him.

I got my Cane Corso and Central Asian Shepherd (Alabai) both as pups at the same time about a year and a half ago and it’s been a great learning experience. The Shepherd has always been the pack leader and I don’t know whether the Cane Corso was naturally a huge pussy by DNA or whether it was because Bear could be a bit of a ***** at times. He’s really coming into his own now and gaining in confidence.

When I have time I will try and join in this thread. Advance apologies for the hijacks.

He came with the name already attached.

We happened to find each other by chance really. I got talking to a mechanic at the local garage who I know quite well and somehow the conversation turned to dogs. We got talking about Ronnie and Rottweilers in general then he mentioned that his sister had two of them, one of whom she thought she would have to give up.

Her circumstances are quite sad really. Her other dog is Zeus' mum so she's had him literally since the day he was born. She separated from her husband and then found herself with two rottweilers, a child and a full time job. Sadly something had to give.....

She refused to send him somewhere unknown but when I came along she made the heart wrenching decision to do what she knew was best for the dog.

We'd first spoken about it in November of last year. I took him for a long weekend as a trial in April and we made it permanent in May.

I have to say she's done a wonderful job of raising him. His temperament is fantastic and he wouldn't hurt a fly. I can take him anywhere without worrying so we go to the local pub most Friday nights for a few pints. He's become a regular there and loads of people love to give him a fuss.

It's amazing how many people warm to a Rottweiler. I think it's because they have a bit of a reputation and also look a bit intimidating. Once people realise that he's just an over grown teddy bear they're all over him.

Uncle Cos,

Is the Cane Torso the black one? Are the other 2 yours as well? (stolen from Twitter).

Yes Teeks. I’d love to post a current pic (no idea how) as he’s grown a bit since then. He’s about 55kg now. Took him for a really long play at a dog park at the weekend and I had to lift him into the back of the car after because he was so spent he couldn’t even jump into it!

Yeah the other 2 are mine also. Little one I’ve had since Amatay left Thailand. I needed to replace Simon with something similar so naturally a street dog was rescued. Much like Amatay, this little one will try and shag anything with a pulse but he’s probably a bit better than Simon at poker.

Local cash only for me at weekends when the games are still soft enough to have a good laugh with the regs and win a few quid.  No banter in a live game now and i just leave no matter how profitable it is.  Dabbled on sky poker now and again late at night once the evening dogs have finished to relax and won a few quid over the last year or so but not totally convinced if you are a 1% sports punter on skybet they 'flick the switch' to make sure you don't win too much on poker.   Sounds crazy but given how soft the site is my mtt graph shouldn't look how it does shape wise.   First big win mtt wise alarms bells go off at , 1% sports betting account viewed and you suddenly break even for the next 9 months in games that are impossible to break even in against the lolregs.  Going to let the dust settle and try my theory on a 100% clean skybet/poker account previously unused and see if the account runs closer to ev than the previous one did. 

Superb troll or most stupid post in a while.

Either way I enjoyed it thanks

Kids dogs etc are all too obvious so I’m going to choose something I think most people either don’t enjoy or that I feel I enjoy way more than the average.

For me it’s food shopping. I really love walking around every aisle in a supermarket taking my time. I find it both enjoyable and therapeutic

So many legends in the thread.

Congrats Woodsey and Sov.

Cos - great to see you have some long term run good at the tables and in life. Brilliant writing as ever.

Thankyou!

What’s not even been mentioned is that people who organise private games often select pros who are their mates and guys who sell them a piece.

Maybe they can’t ask you for a piece because you’re bad and just ran hot or because you might say something which is bad for the people who don’t entirely know the score.

From your posts, it does sound like your behaviour may be a little weird and maybe that’s as much a part of it as winning.
