Sue sent me a lovely update for Rocco, who has just turned one years old. Rocco is from Ernest and Blottie's litter of ten again.
I am sorry hear about Teagol and all your other trials and tribulations. You really have had a tough time.
I thought I would let you know how Rocco is doing now he has just had his first birthday.
He has just come back from the dog groomers so is looking clean and tidy. He is about 12kg. He loves getting wet and muddy and usually has bits of leaves stuck in his ears.
He is a very happy dog, loves people and other dogs. He is very intelligent and quick at learning what you want him to do, though he will sometimes decide not to do it! He does have a playful personality. He seems to like doing a bit of pruning and rearranging in the garden when I am working from home. He loves a run on the beach and in the woods. He enjoys going out with the dog walker and his friends. He will lie quietly under the table if we go out for a meal or a coffee. We are going to do some scent work next month.
He is a super little companion. Everyone who meets him say what a good looking dog he is. The dog walker and dog groomer say how happy and friendly he is.
I hope next year will be better for you and your family.

“Humans are aware of very little, it seems to me, the artificial brainy side of life, the worries and bills and the mechanisms of jobs, the doltish psychologies we've placed over our lives like a stencil. A dog keeps his life simple and unadorned.” Brad Watson, Last Days of the Dog-Men: Stories
