Funny Rocky Stories

As some of you know, I have a few pieces of agility equipment in my back yard including an A-Frame. One morning, I let Rocky out the back door and he, as he often does, bolted across the yard after a squirrel. I was not unduly concerned because, as fast as my dogs have always seemed to me, none of them have ever been able to actually catch a rabbit or a squirrel. I was watching out the door, but then the chase went behind my garage where I couldn't see. A minute later, both the squirrel and Rocky came flat out running into my sight again. Because it was right in his path, the squirrel went running up and down the A-Frame with Rocky running beside him, making this possibly the first agility trial won by a squirrel.

The second story took place yesterday. I am in the process of downsizing and had selected some furniture and other items to donate to a local charity. It was 5 pieces of furniture, three of them being pretty heavy. I have an enclosed front porch, and all the items were out on the porch by 8 that morning, as per instructions. I was expecting the truck to come early, but they didn't, and as the morning went on, I wondered if they were coming at all, so I called the charity. The lady I spoke to confirmed that the drivers were out, but could not tell me for sure whether I was on their list. By mid afternoon, they still had not arrived, and I really thought there had been some mistake and they weren't coming at all that day. I was in my living room watching Forensic Files on Netflix and Rocky was snoozing by the front door when all the sudden I heard a click of the porch door opening. In the next second, Rocky had exploded into fury at the front door and I came running in from the living room. Right as I got there, Rocky had risen on his hind legs and was glaring at the two male "intruders" through the window in the front door. I was just in time to see two sets of very large human eyes and to hear one of them say "Mother of God!!!" I tried very hard not to giggle as I dragged Rocky away from the door.

Can't blame Rocky for trying! FYI from my own experience dogs are sometimes successful in this pursuit so be aware of that possibily. My neighbor feeds squirrels so we have a steady stream of them passing through.

don't assume your Rocky won't catch one some day. I've seen squirrels make a poor choice and dogs take advantage of it. You'll have to decide if you want him to have his prize or take it away.

As far as your furniture movers, I can just imagine their surprise!
