Here is the newest addtion to our family!! Isn't he adorable? And, yes, he is full of energy! He is coming up out of the creek in this picture. The best thing about him is that he doesn't bark incessantly when he is hooked up to his run. Ed ran a cable between two huge trees in our back yard and then attached Rocky's cable to this so he can run and get plenty of exercise. It is really a neat set-up. Most dogs would bark their fool heads off, especially a young dog like Rocky. He is 6 months old. He can sit and he will fetch a stick or bone as long as you keep throwing it. We got out several times a day and let him loose to run and get used to the place. He pretty much stays in the yard, which is really big, and comes when we call him and when it is time to hook him back up, he comes and sits down and lets us. Now that's what I call being obedient. Thank you, Lord. I am going to teach him how to shake, speak and lay down next. I think he is going to be a quick learner. It is good to have a dog around again. It was just a matter of timing and the right dog.
