I had another visitor over the Memorial Day weekend. His name is Rocket and he is a frequent guest here. I admire him very much because he cheated death! He escaped from his house and got hit by a car and had a lot of injuries. The vet was so worried about him that he took him home with him at night to make sure he would have around the clock care. He pulled through because he is a very strong dog.
I also remember when my grandpa died, Rocket was over our house and my mom used to hug him and cry. He was very good at absorbing all her tears.
He's getting old now, he is 11. He still loves to run around in our yard though.
Tonight his parents are coming to pick him up and the house will be quiet again.
