Rocky update!

So I go Rocky’s report card the first of the month and he is doing fabulously! I was super, super happy when I saw he was in Phase 3!!!! His brother Spike is also in phase 3 with him. Those two always loved being together, so I am glad they are studying hard together instead of partying!

Keep up the good work Rocky and don’t get senioritis! I am so proud of my rock star! His trainer said that he was staying on track for training and that they always enjoy taking him out on route!

So Rocky has been gone since April (hard to believe it has been that long!), last Sunday Ely went with me to teach in kids church to get in some of his therapy hours. One of the leaders was looking at Ely and said he looks different; his co-leader then says well that is Ely not Rocky. I guess he was not paying very good attention to who I bring with me. :-) I thought that was a little funny. I don’t know if it is just the fact that the kids at church had seen Rocky grow up or what, but every week I get at least one kid who wants to know where Rocky is. Though the kids love Joe too!

Speaking of Rocky, he has 6 new brothers and sisters (half siblings)! The little yellow ones look just like Rocky did as a baby! So my friend Meagan and I are finally related through our puppies! Rocky’s mom Bella, had puppies with Eve’s (Meagan’s pup) brother, Bentley (who is a very handsome yellow lab!). So Rocky and Eve are related, though it is a very interesting relation :-).

Eve played so nicely with Rocky when Meagan kept Rocky for me last year while I went to Sherman’s puppy raiser day. I am so excited I get to keep track of one of the yellow boys from this litter named Georgia! He goes to his new raiser on tomorrow!

Meagan also has a great blog for her current puppy Ellie, who is a gorgeous 9 month old golden retriever!

Have you ever been looking online or in a newsletter and go hey that looks just like (your dog )!

Well that happened to me the other day, I was going through Southeastern’s summer newsletter that I got in the mail and was reading all the articles. I flipped one of the pages, looked at the picture and go hey that looks just like Rocky! I mean how many pups could have a cute face like that! It is either Rocky or a dog that looks very similar to Rocky. I will let you decide!


  1. I got the SEDG newsletter in the mail this week too and I just stared at that photo wondering if it was Rocky!!

  2. Woohoo go Rocky!!!!

    Boy, that's an interesting relationship!!! :)

    So excited to hear such wonderful news about your Rock star!
