I wasn't talking about my dog but he has been escaping lately. I looked for a picture but they must be on the other computer. He is a cute little beagle with big puppy dog eyes. He keeps getting out of the yard, he comes back, he knows where he lives.

Jason found Rocky at the lake last year, he asked all the people around if he was their dog but nobody claimed him. They were getting ready to leave and he followed them and jumped right into the van. He called me on the way home, I'm bringing something home with me, I knew it was an animal. It wasn't the first time and it won't be the last we are magnets for lost animals.

Our kids are quite attached to the little bugger now so when he gets out they are concerned.

Anyway I was talking about the Rocky movies :)

I love Rocky and it's been years since I've seen them. I did see Rocky Balboa this year and enjoyed it. The kids watched it with me and I told them it would make more sense if they saw the other movies. Right now Comcast has Rocky I-V on demand. Since I was sick this week I had time to watch movies, I watched I-IV and plan to watch V tomorrow night.

I love Rocky, it just makes me feel good and have thoughts of good vs. evil, the underdog achieving, striving to be our best and loving no matter what.

I love that your dog's name is Rocky!
Our dog is a black lab named Jett - we love him too and found him in a similar way - as a puppy being given away at an old farm during a fall festival. He has been the best pet ever.

I don't like Rocky movies but I like beagles. We used to have a Mindy girl.

Bellaroni is our stray cat. Makes me pissed people keep dropping them off.
