Awww, such cute little puppy potatoes.
Docking has been illegal for a while now, where I live, so most rotties, dobies etc. have their full tails. Only the older ones tend not to. A lot of the rottie tails I see are pretty long and fluffy, they are lovely.
There are some rotties who carry a natural bob-tail gene, but I don't think they're very common. I think there are only one or two breeders in Australia whose lines carry it.
I guess my point is that the puppies are lovely and I'm glad you've decided to keep them au naturale in future. :)

Well thank you for the compliments. ^__^ And yeah, I asked Luci's owner if he wanted to keep them natural or dock, and he chose to dock mostly because he's had Rotts in the past who have split or broken their tails from wagging them so hard against walls and stuff. I've heard similar stories for Pit Bulls and Danes, and well, he owns the Mother, so he makes the calls. I just own Daddy. :-P But yeah, definitely, my future litters will have their beautiful natural tails. :)
