Quite Possibly The Best Dog

Rocko is such a sweetheart. He's big and stinky and uses my $1500 chasie lounge from Crate and Barrel as a dog bed, but I love him. When we got Rio, we were pretty sure he'd be okay with it. We had Max for several years, but about 6 years have passed since having a cat around.

We usually feed Rocko outside, but last night, he was inside, so that's where he ate. Rio was most interested.

Now, a lot of dogs would snap at this point, especially around food.

But not Rocko, he didn't  mind one bit that Rio was making a move.

And when there was just a few kernels in the bottom....

He decided to let him have it.  

I don't think Rio even ate any of it, but it was nice Rocko left him 3 pieces. 

I don't think there are many dogs out there who would do the same.
Rocko is sweet like that.

Our 50 pound German Shepherd Mia is desperate to please our little 8 pound kitty. The doggie does whatever the cat says, including stepping away from food and water so kitty can decide whether or not he wants it :p But sometimes the kitty lets Mia clean him so Mia is winning since earning the cat's approval and affection is her number one goal in life ;)

Rocko is "the Best"for sure. You guys were lucky when he came into your lives. Can hardly wait to see him and brush him. Happy Thanksgiving to you all including Rocko and Rio.
