Zoomies are always a good sign!!   I’d love nothing more than to see video of that sweet boy dojng zoomies on thise short fast moving legs of his! HINT!!!

  

I try, but he’s typically done before I can get my phone. I’ll see what I can do next time though.

Rocky had his right front leg amputated on Valentine's Day 2017 after being diagnosed with osteosarcoma.

He joined the September Saints on September 3, 2017.

He is the toughest, bravest, sweetest and best friend I'll ever know.

I totally concur with Sally! I think you may need to velcro da phone to you until you can get a zoomie shot smiley2

No sutures, yay! That means there was not a gaping hole where the tooth came from, bonus! I am so glad he is getting right on back to his gorgeous self smiley_clap

Fortunately, it was one of the small teeth on the bottom. The vet said if he had to lose a tooth, it’s one of the ones to lose. And I think it’s the same tooth Rocky had to have pulled not long after I got him. That’s a little bit eerie.  

I’ll try to get him the next time he zooms around the house. I did get one last weekend of him trying to climb the tree to get that pesky squirrel.

That does not surprise me, lol. Rocky made sure it was just a little tooth❤

As of early this morning, Rocky has been at the Bridge for two years. 

I was going to come here and write something, but I don’t have any words right now. Maybe later. I miss you buddy.

(((hugs)))). These days are so bittersweet. Two years at the Bridge is a long time, and then it’s not, you know what I mean? It feels like yesterday that you and Rocky joined us. But that is also because your boy’s memory lives on here, and will never, ever be forgotten.

Today we celebrate Rocky’s life, and all the beauty he gave to us and the world. Thank you sweet angel, you continue to shine a light on the world!

Hugs, David.

Thinking of you as I am getting closer, too…

You’re in my thoughts.

Thanks everybody. I appreciate the thoughts.

And Jerry, yes, it’s very strange how time works in conjunction with grief. The last few days, it has somehow felt like Rocky was just here in the house with me … but it’s also felt like a lifetime ago since he was last here.

I hear ya David. And if it’s any consolation, I have no doubt that Rocky’s loving spirit is still by your side wherever you go.
