May News from Rockin’ Rooney

May the 4th be with you! That was for my friends who love “Star Wars,” because May 4 is Star Wars Day all across the galaxy. I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do on Star Wars Day except watch the movies all day long (how many are there anyway?), but it sure is fun to say, “May the 4th be with you!” and see people’s reactions. By the way, did you know that the new “Star Wars” movie, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” […]

April News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy Easter! And, Happy April Fool’s Day! Don’t think I’ve ever said that before. Can anyone remember the last time that’s happened? I’m sure there will be some tricks played on Easter, but my guess is that they will be a lot fewer than a regular April Fool’s Day. April 1st is also International Fun at Work Day, but you have to wait a couple more days to observe Don’t Go to Work Unless it’s Fun Day on the 3rd, which […]

March News from Rockin’ Rooney

For a month that was named after the Roman God of War, “Mars,” March sure is a hopeful and uplifting month. I mean, there’s not only the Spring Equinox or the first day of spring (the 20th), but the lively St. Patrick’s Day (March 17); Let’s Laugh Day (March 19); International Earth Day on the 20th; National Goof Off Day on the 22nd; National Puppy Day on the 23rd; and for those of you who are religiously inclined, Palm Sunday on the […]

February News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy February! Welcome to the shortest month of the year. And since this isn’t a leap year, February has 28 days, not 29. And even though it’s the shortest month, but it’s packed with holidays and special days. Right off the bat there’s Groundhog Day on Feb. 2, when some silly, roly-poly creature crawls out of his den and if he sees his shadow (which means the sun is shining) he goes back into his den to sleep for six […]

January News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy New Year! We made it! Last year certainly was an exciting year. Or maybe exciting isn’t the right word. Complicated? Chaotic? Eventful? Strange? All of those and more, probably. Well, it’s a new year, so let’s just start over shall we? Fresh new start for everyone! I don’t usually do the whole New Year’s resolutions thing, but if I did, they would be along the lines of eat less, sleep more, go on more walks, be nicer to my […]

December News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, can you believe it, we made it to the last month of the year?! This has been quite a year, hasn’t it? I don’t know much about what’s going on these days, but people seem a little more animated, more wound up for some reason. I hope for the holiday season everyone can calm down, enjoy the season and the blessings they have and remember it’s the season of giving. There are two more holidays left in the year, […]

November News from Rockin’ Rooney

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! Boy, that one went on forever didn’t it? That’s what happens when Halloween falls on a weekday! This one started Friday and didn’t stop until Halloween on Tuesday. I’m pooped from all the excitement! Now with Halloween out of the way, we can really get into the holiday spirit, with Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve coming up soon. There are some other important days this month, such as the end of Daylight Saving Time on No. […]

October News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy Halloween! I know, I know, it’s not until Oct. 31, but I get all excited when I know it’s close. I love all the great costumes, the candy, the wild, and sometimes scary, decorations and the kids having a great time in their colorful costumes. It’s also the anticipation of what costumes Mom is going to come up with this year. Will we be pirates? Minions? Tropical fish? M&M’s? Super heroes? I can’t wait! It’s going to be exciting this […]

September News from Rockin’ Rooney

I’ve been watching the news a lot lately. I heard it through the dogvine that some of my fellow four-leggers were in a bit of a pickle down in some place called Texas. And you know I’m always up for helping my fellow canines out of a bind if I can. As I was watching (I asked Mom to turn the TV to one of those stations that go on and on about something called “breaking news”), I sadly saw […]

August News from Rockin’ Rooney

Can you believe it’s already August and almost the end of summer? We’re in the dog days now, well, at least through Aug. 11. And August is Admit You’re Happy Month, so just let your hair down and admit it, you’re happy! I certainly am. Plus it has three of our household’s favorite days: for Mom, White Wine Day is Aug. 3 (and Pinot Noir Day is the 18th, take your pick, Mom), for Dad, Aug. 4 is International Beer Day; and for the six […]
