Our man, Rocky Road has been adopted and hit the road to a rich and full life.
All aboard the rescue train! It was water works as I pulled away. There was hugging and patting, along with “I love yous” and lots of “goodbyes.” But I was going, and no one could stop me now. After all, I was driving that rescue train.
I have been a ladies’ man to many ladies in my day and it was time for me to retire. There are so many things I still want to do and so many things I still want to see. When the group stared planning to leave, I told everyone, “No one goes anywhere without me.”
At my house, I was known as the “sweet one,” “the nice one,” and “the one that gets picked on” because I did not want to fight back. I just walked away, but you know the ladies… they would just bow up sometimes and would want to fight with me. I walked fast, but they walked faster.
Finally, I decided that enough was enough and it was my plan for the four of us to leave. I got to pick the ones to go with me, and I picked the sweet ones that never picked on me.
We’re all excited to find our new furever families and start our new lives.
4/9/21 Update: We picked up Rocky Road on Monday. We can tell that he’s probably spent a lot of time in a crate because he’s still learning how to walk on a leash, what it’s like on the outside of the crate, house training (love a belly band) and most of all manners, manners, manners.
His foster fursisters are trying to help teach him the ropes. He’s learning that girls can just be friends … without benefits!
He is very handsome and actually very lovable. He loves to be loved.
4/13/21 Update: Rocky Road continues to adjust to his new life as a retired ladies man. Although let’s be clear: he is definitely still a stud muffin! Just look at that handsome face! And boy, oh boy, can he still strut – gotta love a Bulldog strut!
We are working on manners and where it is appropriate to potty. He’s getting better every day. He wants to and is eager to please – he is truly one of the most lovable Bulldogs EVER!
4/20/21 Update: This has been a good week! I got my stitches out on Thursday and met a new doc at Colleyville Animal Clinic, Dr. Blick. He was a really nice man and told me I was very healthy and, oh, so handsome. Shhhhhh, don’t tell him, but Dr. Larsen is still my favorite!
My manners are getting better. I know ‘Good Boy’ comes with back scratches or a belly rub. Oh yea, MY FAVORITE, is this thing called a treat! Holy cow, I really like those!
Sometimes, I still hear ‘No Sir’ and I’ve been in timeout once or twice, but I am trying really hard for those ‘Good Boys!’
I am getting into a routine and I love my morning and afternoon walks. Foster Dad says I am great on a leash.
I really like my foster fur sister, Aggie. We have ‘Couch Wrestle Mania’ most mornings, play in the yard in the afternoons (when it’s not raining) and ‘toy-tug o’ war’ at night. All the activity wears us both out for sure and we sleep all night – I even slept longer than foster dad this morning. He told me he actually got a whole cup of coffee in before the ‘Rocky’ show started. Whatever that means?
Well, that’s it for now. I am going to join Foster Mom on the deck and enjoy this beautiful Texas day!
4/28/21 Update: I am really a very happy boy and I am loving my new bachelor life. Foster dad says my manners have improved so much and I have not had any accidents in the house in over a week. I am even learning to use the bells hanging on the door when I need to do my business outside. My crate is still my favorite place, but now, I can come and go as I please and I kinda like that! I also LOVE being around my foster humans!……and my foster fur sisters – I think they like me too, even the one that makes funny meow sounds – what the heck is that thing!!?? I look forward to hopefully meeting a furever family soon but in the meantime, “Foster Mom – I am ready for my pawticure please!”
5/10/21 Update: Foster Mom bought us some new chew bones, so I invited my foster sister, Aggie, to come join me in my crate for a chew!
