My Dog, Rocky

I know, everybody loves their dog. Well they should if they don't! Rocky is an English Pointer who my husband "got for me" so he could hunt with him!! He is a great hunter and field trial dog but when he's at home he's definitely my couch dog!! He does run a lot around the house outside if anyone dare jog down the road. He is 8 yrs. old now and is slowing down a little. Of course neutering him helped too. My husband would never take him to have neutered. After Jack died, it was one of the first things I had done. Why are guys so weird about that?? Rocky (Rockford) is great company for me, and is a big chicken at heart. He's a gun dog but is afraid and shakes at fireworks and thunder! He doesn't even like it if you snap the balls in bubblewrap!! Oh well, he is my Rocky and I love him!


  1. Rockford is a doll. What is it with men and their testicles anyways. I had mine neutered. My husband I mean. My dog is a spayed female.
    How does Rocky get into the hammock without getting his feet through the holes?

  2. Don't get me started on this neutering ... human or animal.

    I was sad to read that your hubby has passed, your loss is so deeply noticed in your profile.

    Sorry the children have elected not to be a part of your life. We have a son who made that choice, it saddens us, we had broken hearts, but moved on ... our faith in God carried us thru. Our lives are full, but he is missed.

    Your dog is beautiful ... a great companion I am sure. They have a way of making your day when they wag the tail & look up in love to you.

    May your day be full & blessed ... TTFN ~ Marydon

  3. What cute photos of your dog. Our dog is no longer with us but we have our daughters dog with us this week at the beach and so far she ate a bag of frozen french fries, plastic bag and all. She stalks me in the kitchen all day but who could be mad at her cute face:) Atleast I don't have to vacum the kitchen floor all week because there is not a crumb she can't find on the floors:)
