This is Rocky. He has a sad story but I hope I’ve helped in some way to make his life better. He and his little buddy, Jake came to live with me when Rocky was 12 years old. His caretaker had passed from cancer and the woman’s husband decided to surrender the dogs to the local shelter. The story broke my heart so of course they came to live with me. Thanks to the wonderful Jenifer Parry Steele of Newport Animal Shelter for making this happen. She does so much to help animals every day. Rocky has blessed my life many times over. He is very protective of me and follows my every footstep. Each morning he comes to me and gives me a big lick across the face as if to say, “Thanks Mom.
