Adventures with Rocky

Every Memorial Day we take our blue heeler - Rocky - on an adventure.  There's a great hike in our area and Rocky loves it.  He is an amazing dog.  With 12 years under his collar, he is slowing down and has a few health issues.  We have to lift him in the car because it's painful to see him try to jump up and not make it.  In his younger years he could clear our 5' fence.  He could also stand on his hind legs to see what was for dinner and help himself if it looked good.  Many times I would have a steak, chicken, or roast sitting on the cupboard to cool - and turn around and it would be gone.  Rocky would have steak and we would eat peanut butter sandwiches.  As frustrating as that was, I will miss him soooo much - I can't even think about life without him.  At night when we lay in bed, we'll say "Rocky is such a good dog" and we'll hear his tail hitting the carpet.  LOVE that dog!!!
