Thirteen year-old baby

13 year-old puppy

As you know, I have a little Maltese named Rocky. He’s thirteen this year, but looks like a puppy. People are always asking if he’s a pup and can’t believe he’s that old. I can’t believe it either.

Yesterday morning I let him up on the bed and took this shot. I got him to cock his head by barking like a dog. Yes, I did. I will only sink to that level when no one else is around. Rocky can do the funniest thing with his ears–he’ll stick them straight out like airplane wings. Sometimes he’ll just do one of them and it’s hilarious. Haven’t been able to capture this on camera yet because it’s a random event.

Here’s an outtake where Rocky blinked. I think he looks a little like Confucius. 🙂

Try not to blink

    Rocky certainly has unlocked the secret to the fountain of youth. Now if he would only share it…
    He’s adorable!

    How cute! He does look like a puppy. There is something about having a pet that lifts a persons spirit each day. I loved the antics of our dog and cat.
