I thought it was about time I introduced everyone to our baby, Rocky. He was 1 year old last January and has changed what it's like to live in the Langley household.
We enjoy taking him on trips with us out of town. He does really well traveling as he lays on the arm rest between the two front seats. He recently went with us to the mountains of NC and had fun meeting a very friendly Jack Russell Terrier.
Rocky has turned into an awesome watchdog as he barks loudly at any strange noise. The only problem he seems to have is stopping barking when a relative comes by that he isn't familiar with. We have learned that if we take him and put him into their arms he will stop barking and start licking them.
He weighs 8 1/2 pounds and if we continue to limit the amount of food from the table to a small treat he should maintain his trim figure. He is a champion begger and has this awesome pose where he has one foot on your leg and the other one in the air turned down. It is really hard to keep from giving in and letting him have all he wants. We have to be the ones that know what is really best for him.
After his play time in the evenings running to fetch one of his stuffed toys or a squeaky rubber toy he is only happy when he can lay on or near us and naps so peacefully. He really has a calming effect on both of us after a stressful day at work. We love him very much and just wanted to share him with you.
