Meet Rocky, the three legged wonder.....
We had a wild party Saturday, it was a great time, a wet time, and a wild time. There were 10 dogs to enjoy the water, lots of kids and best of all, we got to meet Rocky.
Rocky is a new foster with Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies, who is living with Colleen, Sarah, River and Riley while he is interviewing humans to decide who he wants to adopt and where he wants to go for his forever home. Rocky has one front leg that was damaged at birth, and is permanently doubled back. It slows him up a little, but not much. We wondered how he would do in the water, no problem, he took to the water immediately and he swam like a rabbit. Like a rabbit because he swams in jerks since he could only stroke with one front foot. Still he swam with good speed, and he swam with joy. He is a real water dog. No, we don't have any photos of Rocky dry. He came in, saw the pool, and was in it in moments.

Rocky also knows he can get away with more than the other dogs can get away with. He knows he can lay on the furniture, take toys, steal treats, and because he is so cute, no one tells him "no".
Riley is practicing to be a Dock diving dog. Maybe we can get a new category at the annual Golden Retriever Rescue Reunion Picnic for dock diving dogs? Below we see Riley getting some big air!
Boy did we have fun. And you missed it!
