In case you’re new around these parts of blogland, Phil and I got Rooney in January. He was rescued from a horrid situation, and was 4 pounds (Check out his story more here). We LOVE being his puppy-parents. I wanted to update you on how the little guy is doing these days.
Rooney is very mild tempered; he just goes with the flow and is always happy. He would rather snuggle than play. Tomlin loves to snuggle when she is sleepy, but Rooney has it on his agenda all day long, everyday.
He is growing very quickly. When we first brought Rooney home we had a hard time getting him to maintain his weight (since he was abused & VERY ill). As soon as we got the little guy healthy (many thanks to the weekly trips to the vet for about 2 months) he is now a whopping 30 lbs! In just 3 months he gained 26lbs!!! Tomlin is one year old and 36lbs. Rooney is only 5 months old and almost has her beat. I have a feeling he is going to be a pretty big dog.
By the time Rooney was 3 months old he was already house broken and responding to commands; he was a very fast learner. I like to think that Tomlin was a good leader for him :-)
Tomlin and Rooney are the best of buds; they do everything together! We all 4 go the park several times a week and all they want to do is play with each other and most people ask us if they are siblings. We just love how well they get a long.
This picture was taken a couple weeks ago at the Houston Arboretum. Rooney is the one on the left (with the bow tie collar). Look at his size compared to Tomlin!!!
