Arrival Story: Rocco was a gift to my daughter. But her work and travels made it impossible for her to have him with her. So, I volunteered to take care of him until she could get settled enough to have him back. But after a year - I changed my mind. Now we kid that Rocco has two Mom's because we jokingly battle over who owns him. But I know that he is mine! I do let him visit her when I travel. So, this is one very loved dog. No wonder he smiles so much!
Bio: Rocco is known for his big smiles. When someone comes to the house that he knows and loves he greets them with a smile. He sleeps under the covers in bed. Many mornings when I wake him up by calling "Time to wake up Rocco" he comes out from under the covers smiling and the whole day is brightened by his happiness.
