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 […]

September News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, what an eventful month August was! The Soberanes fire really hit us hard. And it still won’t be out until the end of this month, we’ve been told. That’s more than two months! But it’s been so great to see everyone come out in support of the brave firefighters and to help those people who were devastated by the fire. Our community sure has each other’s backs! August also had Car Week and the West End Celebration, two very […]

August News from Rockin’ Rooney

Is everyone enjoying the dog days of summer? I can’t believe summer is almost over and students will be going back to school soon and the days will get shorter and cooler! Where did the time go? Our enthusiasm about fun-in-the-sun summer around here is a little dampened by the devastating Soberanes Fire, which is still out of control and is causing all kinds of problems for people and pets in Monterey County. There is so much to be concerned […]

July News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy Fourth of July! Hope everyone has a safe and sound Independence Day. Me? I have mixed feelings about the Fourth of July. I love all the festivities, the backyard barbecues, parades, flag waving and the colorful red, white and blue decorations. It’s a fun day for all. But when it gets dark, that’s when I get apprehensive because that’s when the fireworks come out. It’s a little scary for us dogs with all the explosions, flashing lights and loud […]

June News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy June! Welcome to summer . . . finally! I know, June 20 is summer solstice, officially the first day of summer, but we can celebrate a little early, can’t we? I do believe a few folks out there have already started celebrating the beginning of summer. I wasn’t just imagining the smell of barbecue and the sound of laughter last weekend! Well, I’ve been doing these blogs for more than a year now — my how time flies when […]

May News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy May! I’m so happy that May has come. That means warmer weather, so me and my siblings can get outside more often, and rains have brought colorful wildflowers we can frolic in. And May is the last month of spring, although it’s looking a lot more like summer these days. Summer doesn’t come until June 21, although for most of us summer really starts on Memorial Day weekend, which is from May 27 to May 30. So I’m going […]
