Arrival Story:
I had a roommate, he was an awful roommate but I was desperate. I already have 2 cats and 2 ferrets. But he wanted a dog. A white pitbull. Which I had no problem with but he couldn't find one. (They're not very popular where I'm from). After weeks of searching we found a white lab puppy. After bringing my ferrets to his house to see how they got a long my roommate gave me the money and I paid for him and brought him home. Johnny, my roommate, besides being a drug addict neglected and abused the pup. (He didn't hit him, he just never fed or walked him and kept getting him high.) I was the one who walked him and fed him and loved him. I felt like I couldn't do anything about johnny though because he wasn't my dog. Well one night I came home from work and found "Marvin" (now Rocko) in a ring with people screaming and half naked girls around. Trying to get this sweet puppy to fight an equally sweet pit bull pup. I was ENRAGED. I smashed a beer bottle on the table and had everyone leave. I tried to get the pit to stay but couldn't. I took johnny to court and got the puppy placed with me. (Along with the apartment damages and ruined credit) but it was worth it for my little monster. All the ruined shoes, books, and the 2 eaten x boxes, all the pee and poop stains, ripped garbage, and bloody hands from sharp puppy teeth were worth it.

His previous owner told me Rockos b-day. He couldn't keep him because he had moved into a friend's house and his friends dog didn't like him and the friend didn't want him there.He has a muscle tendon in his jaw that makes his right ear to stick up randomly.

Mommys home!

Mommy came home today! Every time she leaves I think she is going to be gone forever! She said she came home early....she uses that word a lot.
She's been playing with me. But I did get in trouble for getting the dog next door worked up. Mommy doesn't like it when I do that. But she forgave me and let me back on the couch after a while.
She said she's going to the movies tonight, a scary one. So I will have to protect her tonight in the dark.
Mommy also said she has the weekend off and that she will be home with me all weekend! And when she gets money she will take me to the store and I can get a toy!! She give my friends dogs treats (mommys roommate has 4 dogs that I play with every day!) But she buys me toys and takes me on car trips and to the store. I'm HER baby. But I'm not mean. I share my toys.
I hope mommy isn't gone too long tonight, I don't like being away from her.


Mommy's new job.

Times have been hard. Mommy lost her "job", but we always had food and it was fun having her home all the time! But she started a new "job" whatever that is and I have to wait to see her when she comes home. And when she does she smells funny. Not like me! She is tired a lot now and is cranky. She groans when she sits and takes medicine for head aches. But no matter how tired she is she always gives me hugs before doing anything else and even when I scratch her legs (I'm so happy I forget not to jump sometimes!) She just smiles and rubs my ears. I know she needs sleep so I don't jump on the bed as much and I snuggle with her even closer now.
