Much deliberation later the name Rocky stuck and our little puppy was everything I ever hoped for when I got my first dog.

Now two years on, nothing can cheer me up more after a hard day than the dog greeting me when I get home.

His little habits are what make him our special little dog and no one else can ever know him quite like we do now.
