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 […]

April News from Rockin’ Rooney

I heard some good news the other day! I was told that not only can dogs run freely on Carmel Beach, but all over Carmel, and that everyone who goes to Carmel or the beach must carry doggie treats with them and must give them to any dog who begs for a treat! April Fool! if only that were true! Although come to think of it, I can get a treat pretty much anytime in Carmel. I just turn on […]

March News from Rockin’ Rooney

Wow, is it March already?? Even with an extra day this year, February just flew by, didn’t it? And March will be just as busy, maybe busier than February. And it has 31 days! March not only has St. Patrick’s Day (Mom has already picked out my green outfit), the first day of Spring on the 20th, the start of Daylight Savings Time on the 13th, National Pi Day (3-14, get it? I don’t, then again I don’t know math!) […]

February News from Rockin’ Rooney

Can you feel it? It’s February and love is in the air. I’m not quite sure why, but February is the most romantic month of the year. Of course it has a lot to do with Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, but why February? I mean there’s not only Valentine’s Day, but February is also An Affair to Remember Month, Creative Romance Month, National Weddings Month and the third week is International Flirting Week. And, the 14th is also World Marriage […]

January News from Rockin’ Rooney

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2016! I’m really excited about the new year. There’s so many things I want to do, friends I want to see and places I want to go. I don’t usually make new year’s resolutions. By the time it hits March you’ve usually forgotten all about the resolutions anyway. Did you know that the top three resolutions are, losing weight, getting organized and spending less and saving more? And that only 8% of people are successful […]

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 […]
