Rocky Rules the Roost!
Okay Pet People, don't be scared by the funny looking family! Shannon, you really need some practice with photo shop!
As most of you know, Shannon and her family lost their boxer, Harley, not too long ago. He is now safely over the Rainbow Bridge. And, as fate always has it for us Pet People, a new Boxer who needed a home just happened to find a family that needed a Boxer! The new pup is Rocky, who Shannon told us a bit about in a topic below. Shannon says of the new family member:
"Here are a couple of pics of Rocky. You will get a good laugh at the one in the pool. I was in my bathing suit so needless to say I didn't want anyone knowing it was me! He is such a sweetie and we are really enjoying him. The house training is something I wasn't quite expecting but we will get thru it. He is supposed to be about 7 months old. We are going to the vet tomorrow as he is scratching his ears a lot. We still have to watch him around the pool as he jumps in for a swim even when we are not in it. He is very entertaining and wants to sit on everyone’s lap. We are suckers and let him whenever he wants to. My husband and daughters have even been carrying him around like a baby. He seems to enjoy that also—as long as he is close to us he seems happy."
She also said: "I am so jealous that I can't come to the gathering this weekend. I LOVE the cantaloupe martini at the Blackhorse."
Don't worry Shannon, I'm sure we will have many gatherings in the future! Now I like cantaloupe, but a drink with that flavor? I don't know, sounds sort of yucky. Has anyone else tried this concoction?
Shannon, you must tell us again about Rocky's flotation devise The Foreman got. Another pet who likes water. Alice got Thumper, a cat from Cats Are Us that she says likes water. She was thinking of changing his name. Has that happened yet Alice? Or is Thumper staying?
I still have several other pictures sent to me to post, and I will get to them, but I thought Rocky deserved to go to the top of the list!
Brett, don't forget to send pictures of Pearl's birthday party! I want to use them for my column next week, as it will fit with my subject! Then you can cut it out of the paper for her scrapbook! Just don't let Charlie and Lucy see it, as they might get jealous!
