Nearly everyone who ever met him used “sweet” or “sweetest” to describe Rocky. It’s an apt description. He was the sweetest, toughest, most laid-back and loyal companion I’ve ever known.
He overcame abandonment, heartworm disease and cancer. The cancer may have taken his body, but it never broke his spirit.
I’ve never seen a dog who seemed so genuinely appreciative of his lot in life after being rescued. But, truth be told, I’m the one benefited more from him.
He’ll be missed terribly until we can be reunited at the Bridge.
