I spoke with Rocky's new "dad" yesterday. John said that Rocky is adjusting well to life in their home. During the first night he checked on Rocky about 4 times. The first three times Rocky was sleeping in the middle of the living room floor. The 4th time, Rocky was sleeping up in John's recliner. Rocky got to chase (but not catch) a black racer snake in the back yard and impressed John with his running speed. Rocky also met the neighbor's dogs through the fence which went very smoothly. John was a bit concerned that Rocky wasn't eating his kibble well, but admited Rocky never hesitated to request and eat dog treats. Our junk food addict dog is trying to eat all snacks and no real food - nothing new there! The initial adjustment seems to be going wonderfully. And to make things even better ... it was John's birthday. Rocky was his birthday present!

I spoke to Rocky's dad just before Christmas and everything was going well. Rocky had a few accidents in the home but was corrected and didn't respond in a negative manner and hasn't had any since. So many may pass through our lives and while you want to remember them all some like Rocky will always be with you.................................Dennis

Thanks Jen. I have not been on Zootoo for a while but Joanne called me when John announced Rocky was His Dog. Her voice was shaking with excitement and I was speechless. I am sure we have all been "holding our breath" on this one. I am so glad Rocky's Forever Family finally showed up as he sure waited a long time for them...
