July News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy Fourth of July! Have a great time celebrating our country’s 241st birthday no matter what you’re doing — barbecuing, picnicking, going to the beach or park, and, of course, watching fireworks displays. You’ll be doing that on TV on the Monterey Peninsula because they aren’t any around here. Which is just as well, fireworks scare the bejeesus out of me and my siblings and other critters. All that racket, and for what? Yes, yes, I know, we’re celebrating the birth […]

June News from Rockin’ Rooney

Oh, happy day! It’s June, so that means summer time! And that means barbecues, beach parties, backyard parties, wine tastings, music festivals and food festivals. Did I mention barbecues and food festivals? I love June not only because it’s summer, but because it’s always loaded with great food celebration days. I mean it starts right off with National Hazelnut Cake Day and keeps it rolling on June 2 with National Doughnut Day, National Rocky Road Day and National Rotisserie Chicken […]

May News from Rockin’ Rooney

Rockin Rooney is preparing the #BulldogParkingLot for May 14 is also Dance Like a Chicken Day! Happy May Day! Or, if you’re in or from Hawaii, Happy Lei Day! That means spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner.

April News from Rockin’ Rooney

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be leaving my comfy home, my siblings, mom and dad and em“bark” on a new adventure. Yes, I have decided to become the first skydiving Frenchie in the world. Yes, I will be jumping out of airplanes with my little parachute, goggles and helmet and doing  aerial tricks. And if that doesn’t work out, I’m thinking about welding. I mean, April is, after all, National Welding Month. I know you […]

March News from Rockin’ Rooney

Welcome to March Madness! Well, I’m not quite sure why they call it March Madness because it seems to me that there’s a little madness in every month. In fact, March seems to have fewer crazy days than other months. And it’s not like March doesn’t have some big days, like St. Patrick’s Day (March 17),  Daylight Savings Time, March 12, and the first day of spring, March 20, which is also International Earth Day. And the month is dedicated […]

February News from Rockin’ Rooney

Show of paws — how many of you kept your New Year’s resolutions? Congratulations, if you made it past Jan. 17, which was National Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day. And if you didn’t, well, there’s always next year! So far I’ve managed to stick to my resolutions. But then again, I didn’t really set the bar too high this year. See, the trick is, make resolutions you know you can keep, not stuff like end world hunger or become a […]

January News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy New Year! We made it to 2017. Boy, was 2016 a rough year, so many of our favorite celebrities passing away, from Prince to Princess Leia. But we can’t dwell on all that, we have to look forward and make this the best year we can. So, January is National Blood Donor Month, National Hobby Month, Hot Tea Month, National Oatmeal Month and National Soup Month, but we all know what we do in January: Make resolutions! I know, […]

December News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, we made it! Well, almost, there are 31 more days in 2016. But we made it to December, that’s a good thing, right? December is all about the holidays. And it’s one of my favorite times of the year. I love all the singing and colorful decorations and the smell of pine in the air and yummy things cooking in the kitchen. I also like it because it’s a time of joy and laughter and giving. At least it […]

November News from Rockin’ Rooney

I’m so glad it’s November already! In fact, I’l be happier when it’s Nov. 9, then I won’t have to hear people talk about this thing called The Election. Seems like that’s all I’ve been hearing about for the last several months or more. I’m less than a foot tall, but I hear a lot of things about this Election, not all of them good, either. Seems like everyone’s up in arms about something! But I’m over it now. I […]

October News from Rockin’ Rooney

October is one of my favorite months because I like all the signs of fall, the fall colors, the leaves, the pumpkins, pumpkin pie (with ice cream, yum!) corn mazes, even the little chill in the air, but especially for Halloween because I get to show off my costume along with my siblings. But I have a “pet” peeve about October and Halloween (see what I did there?). Why is it the last day of the month? Now I have […]
