Fleabag Friday | Rocky

Today's adorable pet is a dog called Rocky, owned by Hannah from Dainty and Ivory.
Rocky
DOES ROCKY HAVE A NICKNAME?
He has so many. They include RockyRoo, Fatty and TubTubs. The nicknames are all there for a reason but they sound so mean.

WHAT BREED OF DOG IS ROCKY?
Rocky is a boxer dog and is slightly on the tubby side but still adorable.

HOW OLD IS HE & HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD HIM FOR?
I've had him since he was a pup, maybe a couple of months old. Rocky is now eight.

HOW DID YOU GET ROCKY?
A couple of days before we got Rocky our dog Mac had just died (who was also a boxer) I was so upset that when we got Rocky and he came running through our door for the first time I cried and couldn't go near him until I stopped. Rocky was the last pup of the litter, sadly all his brothers and sisters died, (sad face) my dad's friend at work used to breed his boxer dog and was looking for a home for Rocky. My dad wasn't sure about it since we had just lost Mac but we knew eventually we would get another dog we just didn't realise how soon.

WHAT ARE SOME QUIRKY THINGS ABOUT ROCKY'S PERSONALITY?
Our other dog Alfie is energetic and always wants to play while Rocky like to sleep all day. Rocky is smart. if Alfie is sat in a place where he wants to sit/lay, he'll bark so Alfie will go running off and steal his place. There are so many, they make me laugh all the time.   




WHAT DOES YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH ROCKY MEAN TO YOU?
It's not hard to see why people without pets fail to understand the bond a person can form with a pet. To me my dogs are family, I love them and I would be heartbroken if anything happened to them. 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE PAST TIMES AND MEMORIES WITH ROCKY?
My favourites with Rocky often involved cuddling him when I feel sad and recently he likes to sleep on my bed. That makes me happy. 
Of course there so lots more but I always forget the best ones when I get asked!
