Rocky Update

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!

That's Rocky he's a treat a holic. I think it is wonderful that his new Dad is so concerned that he got up to check on him. Rocky is a wonderful boy and I will miss him.

John got the best birthday present in the world! Our Rocky. I am so excited that Rocky has such a concientious and caring family. I love that they are monitoring all that he does and how he is reacting to his new home and environment. A match made in heaven. Rocky - it was worth the wait!

Each morning that I have woken up knowing that Rocky has a loving home I feel more motivated than ever in our mission at HSNC. This is what pure joy feels like.

Miracles DO happen. Rocky was just waiting for his new human, the right one. I pray that it all works out. The best to all of them.
