What kind of pet do you have (dog, cat, bird, etc.)?       Dog

What is your pet’s name?     Rocky

How did you come up with this name?    The summer before we got Rocky, we watched all the Rocky movies at the beach. My youngest son was only 4 at the time and it was one of the dogs from Paw Patrol, so he agreed with the name.

Describe your pet in three words:    Crazy, loving, smart

What is the thing your pet cannot live without?     His humans

Can your pet do tricks? If so, what?     He responds to sit, down, come, and no. He is very smart and could probably do more, but he has us trained instead of vice versa. Rocky is my first dog and I realize that I have no idea what I'm doing.

What is the best trick your pet has taught you?      When he wants a treat he will get something he isn't supposed to have. And boom he gets rewarded for it!

Do you have a nickname for your pet?   Rock Star

You know your pet is in a good mood when he/she does this:   When he wags his tail - it's pretty constant.

Your pet’s favorite spot to hangout is:   Anywhere that I am

Favorite toy:   His Kong filled with frozen peanut butte

One habit you would like to change:    When he steals something that he shouldn't have

Does your pet prefer to play with people, or other animals?    Both!

Does your pet like children?     Yes

If you could ask your pet one question and they’d be able to answer it, what would it be?    What do you do when we go to work for the day?

Can your pet read your emotions?     Absolutely!

Funniest moment you’ve had with your pet:     When he chased a rabbit out of the yard and the entire neighborhood was trying to catch him.

What is the most rewarding aspect of owning your pet?   He's really good at cuddling when I need to relax.
