January News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy New Year! Is everyone glad to be finished with 2019 and start fresh in a new decade? I know I am! I’m already working on my New Year’s resolutions, but they’re probably much different than yours. You see, you humans are mostly concerned with a few things: weight/fitness, money and dropping bad habits (smoking, excessive drinking, reducing stress). And while 60 percent of you make resolutions, only 8 percent are successful in achieving them. In fact, more than half […]

December News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, here we are, the last month of the year. Where did the year go? Wait, don’t we always say that toward the end of the year? Maybe it just seems like the year just rushes by us in a flash. So, what I’d suggest for the last month of the year is take your time, relax, enjoy the waning days of 2019 and be refreshed when 2020 arrives. I know, I know, easy for me to say. I don’t […]

November News from Rockin Rooney

November News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, can you believe we’re less than a month away from Thanksgiving 2019, and less than two months to Christmas 2019? Before you know it, 2020 will be upon us! November is a month of thanks and gratitude, but don’t wait until Thanksgiving to express your thanks and gratitude to the ones you love. Besides, Thanksgiving is really late this year, coming on Nov. 28, two days before the end of the month! In other words, start giving thanks early! […]

October News from Rockin Rooney

October News from Rockin’ Rooney

Welcome to October! Well, you know what that means. A chill in the air, pumpkins and pumpkin spice everything, shorter days, and coming up with your Halloween costume! I know Mom is working feverishly on costumes for all of us in the Bulldog Parking Lot. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for me. Hope it’s a superhero — don’t laugh! So, what are the hot costumes for this year, at least for you two-legged types? We’re a little more […]

September News from Rockin Rooney

September News from Rockin’ Rooney

Well, it’s September and summer has come to an end. Well, fall doesn’t officially begin until Sept. 23, the Autumn Equinox, but Labor Day, Sept. 2, is usually considered the last day of summer for most people. And why aren’t people supposed to wear white after Labor Day? Seems kind of silly to have a time when you can’t wear white! And why Labor Day? I get that it’s a federal holiday that celebrates the American labor movement and the […]

August News from Rockin Rooney

August News from Rockin’ Rooney

It’s August! Are we really almost at the end of summer? I know we’re fast approaching the end of the dog days of summer (July 3 – Aug. 11), but we still have another month until the end of summer, right? That would be Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 2. So I’m celebrating summer for another month and plan on having a great time with Mom and Dad and my siblings. August is, after all, both Admit You’re Happy Month and […]

July News from Rockin Rooney

July News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy Fourth of July! And welcome to the Dog Days of Summer! That’s July 3-Aug. 11, if you’re wondering. That’s a lot of dog days, not that I’m complaining! Not only dog days, but July has a lot of good days (Chocolate Day, French Fries Day and Pecan Pie Day, yum) as well as some outright weird days (Take Your Houseplants for a Walk Day?). It is, after all, National Anti-Boredom Month! July has some of the best food days […]

June News from Rockin Rooney

June News from Rockin’ Rooney

Welcome to the start of summer! Or, as we call it, June Gloom! Memorial Day was the unofficial start of summer, but summer actually doesn’t officially start until June 21, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year and when the sun reaches its highest point. Not that it helps us, it’s forecast to be 62 degrees and cloudy that day! Our real summer doesn’t start until late August and early September anyway. June is one of those placeholder […]

May News from Rockin Rooney

May News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy May Day! Hope you’re having a great spring! Spring officially came on March 20 and summer doesn’t come until June 21, so May Day is a day around the world to celebrate spring with dancing, singing, gathering of flowers (for your May Basket!), and in some places dancing around a Maypole. Since I don’t do any dancing, I’ll just have to enjoy all you silly humans do it. And remember, don’t confuse May Day with the distress call Mayday! […]

April News from Rockin Rooney

April News from Rockin’ Rooney

I would like to announce today, April 1, that this will be my last column and I will be throwing my hat in the ring as a Democratic candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America. Why not? What are there now, 16 entered in the race? Yes, it’s a very diverse group with women, people of color, a gay man, veterans, a mayor, governors, congresspeople, businessmen, but no dogs. Until now, that is. So add one French […]
