A: My wife and I were out looking at dogs and we hesitantly decided to take a look at Rocket. He was only 3 months old and looked like a wrinkly, sad old man. He came right up to me and started nibbling on my ear and WE KNEW, he had to come home with us!
The Blissful Dog: Aren't you glad you listened to him?
The Blissful Dog: We are so not age-ist here, so can you share how old your dog is?
A: Rocket is just over 1 YR old. His bday is 12-2-2017
The Blissful Dog: Rocket is a Sagittarius born through and through! He tells it like it is, yet is totally positive by nature. Rocket also a thirst for adventure. While others stick to things they know, Rocket is energized by what is new and wants to see it all and do it all!
The Blissful Dog: Is this your only dog or pet? If not fill us in on your dog’s housemates. Do they get along? Who is Top Dog?
A: Rocket is the newest edition to our animal family. We have 2 chihuahuas, Max -12 and Ditka, 8. While Rocket is the craziest of the pack, Max still maintains his alpha status.
The Blissful Dog: Does your dog watch dogs on TV? Is there a fave show or channel?
A: Not so much but he does enjoy Ghost Adventures with us!
The Blissful Dog: I bet Rocket would make one heckuva ghost buster!
The Blissful Dog: What is your dog’s favorite splurge for a snack? A bit of steak, a bully stick, stolen cat litter box truffles?
A: Rocket LOVES homemade chicken jerky, but truth be told, he'll eat and enjoys just about everything.
The Blissful Dog: His metabolism is envy inducing, look at that slim physique!
The Blissful Dog: If your dog could be any other breed or mix of dog, what do think they would be?
A: None- He is Iggy through and through ;)
The Blissful Dog: What is the funniest thing your dog ever did? Did they paper the house with an entire 12-pack of Charmin’s finest? Or did they drag out the contents of your clothes hamper to show your dinner party guests? Or maybe you have a Houdini hound?
A: When he's not soaring from one end of the couch to the other, he loves chasing his own hind leg and/or tail in circles. He also farts like a human!
The Blissful Dog: Has your dog ever taken an obedience class? Class clown or class star?
A: He has not.
The Blissful Dog: If you could tell your dog one thing and know they 100% understood, what would it be?
A: ”Shaschers" He knows that he's about to get a massage and gets into the position for receiving one. My wife taught him that one.
The Blissful Dog: Does your dog have any silly habits or idiosyncrasies? Do they spin in circles before pooping? Do they always (every. single. time.) bark when the microwave beeps? What is that funny little thing your dog does that always makes you smile?
A: He winds himself up in blanket for bedtime, then about 20 mins later, comes out from underneath them, and lays across my wife or myself, like roadkill. This cycle repeats most of the night.
The Blissful Dog: Here’s your chance - Share anything you care to about your dog.
A: He is the most beautiful dog we've ever owned, he's also incredibly intelligent and can also leap over 8 feet from lounge to lounge on our couch and also runs along the backrests too, defying gravity (he thinks he is Evel Knievel).
The Blissful Dog: Thank you so much for sharing the inside scoop of life with Rocket. Sounds like he made the best choice in deciding to come live with you and your family!
