Happy Birthday, Rocky

I can hardly believe it.  My baby boy will be 1 year old tomorrow. 
On November 19, 2008, Rocky made his appearance.  The story we were told is that his mommy was left at the Animal Resuce Place.  She was very pregnant.  How could anybody just leave a very pregnant dog like that?  They took her in and got her all comfortable.  Good thing because the very next day Rocky and his 12 siblings appeared.
He spent 11 weeks at the Animal Rescue Place before we found him.
It was love at first sight for Hubby and Rocky.  I needed a little more convincing.  Losing Blacky so suddenly was rough and I wasn’t ready for a puppy.
It was love at first sight for Luci and Rocky, too.  I could see that I was outnumbered.
But how could you not love this face?
He’s a sweet boy.  Obedient.  Well behaved.  Did great in puppy training class.  He’s Mommy’s sweetie.  But then he gets to romping with Luci and he’s a holy terror.  We’ve already had more than a few trips to the vet for sprained legs.  He just never gives up when he’s playing with Luci and she doesn’t realize that she’s so much bigger than him.  He’s a joyful addition to the family. 
Happy birthday, Rocky.  Mommy can’t imagine life without you.
