Rocky was adopted from CPR in April of 2012. Here he is in photos by himself and also with his housemates, Shelly (fawn) and Mini.  Rocky passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on October 6, 2012, due to a hidden tumor that perforated his stomach. These pictures happened to be taken the day before he passed away.

Even though Rocky was in our household for only six months, he always will be a treasured family member.  Rocky was one of the sweetest pugs ever, and just wanted love and attention.  Rocky had been found as a stray so, as might be expected, the high points of his day were meal times.  He twirled about in happy anticipation as his bowl was filled.  Rocky was a scrawny 15 pounds when he arrived and had reached the healthy weight of 19 pounds at the time of his tragic death.  We miss Rocky and the joy he brought to our lives every day.
