UPDATED BIO 01-27-2017: Hi Everybody! It’s me, again, Rocky ☺ I’m still doing great in my foster home - just chillin’ and stuff. My favorite thing to do is sleep, preferably next to someone warm who doesn’t like to get up very often. Unfortunately, my foster mom gets up all the time, but I’m patient and I wait for her to come back and then I snuggle back in.

My eyes are pretty much the same; I have two bum eyes, but one is doing okay with all the meds, so hopefully if I do have to lose one in the future, I’ll get to keep the good one. The drops and the coconut oil that foster mom puts in them are working pretty well. Oh, I’m still on two kinds of prescription meds for my eyes - one is this specially compounded stuff that costs about $80 a month and helps tear production in my very dry eyes, and the other one is a steroid and costs $30 a month. Foster mom said it would be awesome if I had someone called a “sponsor” to help UYR pay for my monthly eye meds, which I will need for the rest of my life.

I take everything with a huge batch of grateful for all the other good stuff in my life. Life was not always as good as it is now in my foster home. If you look at my earlier messages, I was a big mess when I came into UYR, but I’m a happy camper now.

Ok, so what happened in my life lately? Well, foster mom found a bump on my back, so she shaved me all down (I hate that) and I had a little crusty stuff happening on my skin, but a couple of medicated baths took care of it. I’ll probably just wear the short coat from now on in order to keep this under control.

What else? Turns out I’m a pretty good traveler. We drove around the country at Christmas and so that was a new adventure. I’m usually on alert in the car and really just look forward the hotel rooms, which contain A) a bed B) food and C) foster mom.

How’s life at home? Well, my Sister is still really obnoxious. She’s like 1,000 years old and never sits down for long. She’s so old she is no longer potty trained, and the worst part is, she has no compunction about walking over my head if she feels like it. Mom says that she was a rescue like 8 years ago and was in some really bad situations. So now, Mom does whatever Sister wants to make up for it all. Foster Mom’s friend jokes that Sister is something called nouveau riche – I don’t know what that means, but probably means she is really spoiled. Since Mom just indulges our every whim, I think she is perpetuating whatever is wrong with her, but at least I am a good boy. Mom says I am the perfect dog and she says she doesn’t care about indulging either of us, because she is making up for all the bad years.

I’m never aggressive with Sister, even when she walks on my head. I’ll growl at her if she is invading my personal space in a way that is obnoxious, but I just do a little rumble. I like her if she just wants to curl up next to me, but I really hate being disturbed during my rest.

Some interesting things about me ……. my favorite things are as follows: A) food B) water C) curling up on foster mom’s lap D) napping E) going outside to do my business (I never, ever use the floor as a bathroom) F) going to sleep at night. My least favorite things are…… A) baths B) vets C) any nonsense, especially my Sister walking on my head (did I mention that?).

I think that’s it for now! Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year – I know I am cuz’ I’ve got it good in my foster home.
Love, Rocky
