Fellow puppy raisers should understand by the title what this post is about. For the rest of our readers, I found out today that Rocky will be heading off to start a new adventure in his life April 12-15. It was a bit of a shock when I opened my e-mail, as I was not expecting him to go back so soon.
Rocky will be the first of my puppies to start this adventure so young at only 12 ½ months old. But as hard as it is for me to admit, Rocky is so ready to start the next step in his journey! I on the other hand not so ready to let him go, but I guess I will never be ready. Even though I will only have had Rocky for 10 ½ months, I know he will be super hard to give up. He has a great personality that allows him to have everyone wrapped around his paw.
I know that Rocky will have a blast at college, the dogs are truly spoiled down there. It helps a little having heard just over a week ago from some of the SEGDI trainers say how great Rocky is and how handsome he is. The head of the breeding department loved him, so that might help since he is a breeder eval. I personally think he would have gorgeous, smart puppies. If he does not make it as a breeder, he will make a great guide and if he decides that is not for him, he will do fabulous in any job he decides.
I have quite a few spies that have already said they would keep an eye on Rocky while he is down there and give him some extra loving from me. Rocky will enjoy his days playing with his new friends and roomies and going new places with the super cool trainers!I know Rocky will continue to make me proud in his new journey, just as he has made me proud every minute of every day I have had him!
