Rock was a 6 pound White Chihuahua....
He was rescued in 2003 and was great dog except he thought he could bully anyone and any dog..Hence the name Rocky Balboa..
He carried himself proud with his tail curled up.. and when I held him the first time when I put him down he bit me thru my thumbnail...so I never picked him up again unless he was in a good mood.The photo at right shows him bullying Jill and I didn't do the "remove red eye)because this showed his true personality...lol
We have several rescued dogs from Chihuahuas to catahoulas and a Pit Bull...and all advoided him.
He was losing some teeth so we bought the soft dog food that looked like Hamburger meat and He always let me know when he was hungry and would come under the computer table and I would hand feed or hold the bowl so he could eat and if you sat the bowl on the floor he wouldn't eat It had to be held or hand fed.
He got ill last week and seems it was a stiff neck and vet treated him on Thursday and he did great on Friday...Saturday he was worse and by Monday (today) he was swollen and worse...Back to vet and he had enlarged liver and a Large tumor so we had to euthanize him for at his age he may not have survived any surgery and didn't want him to suffer any longer..He is being creamated and will return home to us...and will sit beside Ruby Dew.
We will miss you ROCK and we loved you very much
