December News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy December! I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, didn’t get trampled on Black Friday, supported your local mom and pop stores on Small Business Saturday and got some nice gifts for your doggies on Cyber Monday! December is one of my favorite months of the year. There’s great holiday treats to nibble on, gift-wrapping and decorating, everyone seems happy and cheerful, there are lots of holiday parties to go to, and, there’s two of the biggest holidays of the […]

November News from Rockin’ Rooney

“Rabbit! Rabbit!” Now I’ll have luck for the rest of November. At least that’s what my friend Reggie, the English bulldog, told me. If you say “Rabbit! Rabbit!” on the first day of the month, the rabbit will take away your bad luck and bring you good luck. Reggie says it’s an old English tradition, but he also says he’s not sure how it all got started, it’s just been around a long time. Reggie also says it might have something […]

October News from Rockin’ Rooney

I gotta tell you, I have mixed feelings about October. We’re well past summer and now we’re into fall, but it still kind of feels like summer. October is one of the months that seems to fall in between summer and fall, like a season of its own. Even the month’s big holiday, Halloween, doesn’t come until the last day of the month. I’m not sure I can wait that long to put on my costume that Mom has picked […]

September News from Rockin’ Rooney

It’s September and I’m feeling kinda sad. Summer’s pretty much over, fall is just around the corner, the kids are back in school, everyone’s back from vacation. But if you’ve lived around here for any length of time you know that this time of year, September and October, is really our summer. Summer around here tends to be foggy and cool, but September is usually pretty warm, at least after the fog clears away. It can be cool and foggy […]

Happy August from Rockin’ Rooney

This is my favorite time of the year, August, the middle of the dog days of summer. Warm weather, naps, barbecues, more naps, some beach time, even more naps. The dog days are perfect for me, my sister and two brothers. But when I told one of my neighbors, a very smart and friendly shi-tzu, about loving the dog days because we get to lie around napping because the weather is so hot, she set me straight. She told me […]

July is National Ice Cream Month

I am so happy that July is here I can barely contain myself! Sure, I’m as patriotic as the next dog — Mom will make sure I have my favorite red, white and blue outfit ready for 4th of July — but I’m all a-twitter because July is National Ice Cream Month. All month! That’s almost too much to bear, not that I’m complaining, mind you. It’s just that there are so many ways I can celebrate: sundaes, root beer […]

Need An Excuse to Celebrate This June?

I’m a happy camper these days. The May Gray is over and we’re into June, which means summer will soon be here. I know some people say that summer begins after Memorial Day, but I go by June 21, summer solstice, which I like to call, “Yay! It’s Finally Summer” Day! And as a bonus, June 21 is also Father’s Day, which means we get to go out and celebrate with Mom and Dad. And me and my siblings Geno, […]

Happy May from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy May! Just the other day I overheard someone say, “April showers bring May flowers.” I love that, not only because I love a rainy day, but I also like flowers, especially when I can see and smell some pretty flowers on the daily morning walks Mom takes us on. But we didn’t get much rain in April, so does that mean there won’t be any flowers on our walks this month? I hope that’s not the case. In fact, […]

Happy April Fools Day from Rockin’ Rooney

If I’m appearing a little antsy these days, walking around on little cat’s feet, there’s a reason. April Fool’s Day is coming up and I’m a little nervous. Why? Well, when you have two brothers and a sister, you never know where and when the pranks are going to come from! And you know Mom’s always got something up her sleeve. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were all in cahoots, so I’ll have to be on my […]
