maybe the rotty was just doing it's part to ensure that Easter dinner came out ok.

a whole new meaning to the phrase "licking his chops".

But seriously, that rottie was proving once and for all that it's humans that make them vicious.
Here's another take by K9 Magazine.
Sick Lambs Find Unusual Mother In Rottweiler
When K9 Magazine spoke to PR guru Max Clifford in K9 Magazine, we asked him how he would generate some good PR for the Rottweiler, a breed that has recieved some negative press over the years. He told us he would publish a story involving a Rottweiler saving the life of a child. It seems though, that the Rottweiler has gone one better and doesn't need the help of the UK's most prominent publicist, as one loving Rottweiler seems to have pulled off a PR masterstroke without even realising it.
Molly, an eleven month old Rottweiler belonging to Maria Forster of Powys has 'adopted' two young lambs and is taking rather good care of the delicate little creatures.
The lambs needed special attention after they were born due to poor circulation. They were placed near an oven to heat them up and it was then that Molly took an instinctive, nurturing approach to them, licking them as their mother would have. Molly's owner explained that she has a protective desire to sleep with them and keep them away from harm.
Ms Foster told local press "The cat came into the kitchen the other day and walked over to the bucket where the lambs were sleeping, but Molly pushed her away as if to say: 'They are mine.'
"She will let the sheepdog have a look, but only for so long before she pushes him away as well."
Ms Foster said they cannot be returned to their mother because they would be rejected by her after so long apart.
A spokesman for the Kennel Club, said "in the right hands Rottweilers should not pose a problem."
He added: "Rottweilers were originally bred as guard dogs in Germany, but in the right hands they should not pose of problem. They are not born aggressive, they learn it from us.
"Nonetheless, it's certainly the first time I've ever heard of a Rottweiler caring for lambs." http://www.k9magazine.com/viewarticle.php?sid=15&aid=1800&vid=0&npage=
