JOE'S T-SHIRTS!

Sit, stay and give me your paw! Keep scrolling down!
I will introduce you to Acosta Rottweilers. 

But Watch Out! You may catch...
Rott Fever

 
               Ellsa, Grace and Joe!
Grace Acosta was my typist but her registered name is
Graciela Maria Veronica de la Caridad Acosta Gomez de Molina!

Now I understand why we get such long registered names :-)


This is Grace with one of us.

The story begins
A long, long time ago...
My grandparents moved to Florida where my mother Johanna, was born. She came to Grace's home when she was 13 weeks old. My mother was "smart". She obtained a title in obedience and it shows behind her name, just like humans do... MD, PHD, ..., etc.



Acosta's Johanna Kary, CD
(1983 - 1994)

Time passed and Johanna wanted a family of her own and talked to Grace about it. Grace took her to a dog "gynecologist" (they are called Veterinarians) and after a complete series of health checks she went on to marry her first husband "Duffy".My sister,
Karla Vom Schwanenschlag
was born
       
  KARLA
(1986 - 1996)

I don't know what happened to my Mom's first marriage with Duffy. They soon divorced and she remarried. This time to a high class individual. His name was Champion Powsell's Rambo de Jaco. He was #2 Rottweiler in '87. His father was #1 Rottweiler in '86, Champion Altar's Gandolf Vom Axel. Gandolf was my grandfather and Rambo my father. I will show you my first picture.
I am the one in the back. 
                   Do you see me?   ------------------>

Two of us stayed with Grace. My brother Jason and myself. Here we are together.
Jason and I are now Rottie Angels.

My brother also went to school and got his titles. 
Jason's long registered name is:
Acosta's Machtig Jason, CD, RTD, CGC
This was the last birthday cake I got to share with my brother Jason before we went to Heaven...

THE BIRTHDAY BOYS!

"THIS IS MY CAKE!"

"YA WANNA FIGHT OVER THIS?"

"THERE IS ENOUGH FOR BOTH."

All  the Rottweilers in Heaven are dancing with us now
We are all at Rainbow Bridge being Guardian Angels




 

I just lay here & smile! 'cause I love them
  
          
My Mom Johanna is at my right, Jason is next to her, Karla is sitting up front and Karla's daughter out of Gandolf, "Alejandra" is standing up.



JOE AND SURELY
 Now I must continue, so let me introduce you to my "tutor" (she is called a Handler). 
This is Surely Rawlings!!

Our story is much longer. But, I have so many other pictures to share with you I must ask you to buy my book when it is published.  
I will introduce you to the love of my life, ELLSA! Stay with me. You will love what FOLLOWS! 

CHAMPION HAKOOZ'S ELLSA APOLLO, CGC, HIT
1993 Top Bitch All Systems
1993 Westminster Best of Opposite Sex

No comments!

 

Don't go away! It gets better!
Two more head shots of Ellsa and then I will show you some of my own Champion Children! And guess what more? 
I will show you what "we" the Acostas like to do... stay tuned.  And in FINLAND, I have children thanks to modern science...

 I have nine children there. Pirkko Pesonen of Von Feuerwald Kennels convinced Grace to send a little bit of me overseas to that far away snowy country! My kids love it there. They invited me to visit with them, but I was too old to travel that far. We talked very often on the internet.


"This is one of my daughters playing in the snow"


Ooops, I am beginning to show a little gray here and there.

 
We love to go to our cousins' home... It's like going camping!
