    Rocky The Border Terrier (1994-2011)

    Rocky The Border Terrier (1994-2011)

    Rocky, a Border Terrier, passed on May 18, 2011 after 17 years of a life well lived, surrounded by family; beloved sister of Lola the Alaskan Sled Chihuahua, and Daisy, the Yorkie; primary disciplinarian of and caregiver for three human Jacobson children; never met a meal she didn’t like; world class digger; laughed at bad weather; ability to hang by her teeth from a rope exceeded human capacity to hold the rope; obsessed with tennis balls; resented being called a Border Collie; autopsy confirmed what family always knew, she didn’t have a mean bone in her body; now in doggie heaven; dearly missed already.

    Update 5-19-2011:  My wife and I wish to thank the readers for the wonderful comments.

    Any time you get 17 years with a dog, you've been blessed. And when God finally calls you (hopefully not for a long time), He'll make sure Rocky is waiting for you.
    It'll take time, though, Professor. We lost our inherited Maltese "Jasper" right after Labor Day. We still miss him, even though we've since added a wild and crazy fun guy (via rescue) since then, tagged "Joe Paw" (do you get the idea that I live in a Penn State household?).
    Take care and thoughts for all.

    I have a feeling Rocky picked a fine family to grace with his affections while he was here.

    Condolences on your loss.

    My sympathies on the loss of your pet. If when they go at an advanced age, it still seems as if it is too soon.

    My condolences.

    My late father had a pessimistic temperament for most of his life. I was amazed by his change after an abandoned dog adopted him.

    My sympathies to you and your family Mr. Jacobson. My wife and I lost our 23 and a half year old cat, HiRise, this past November and we miss her terribly. Rocky's pic looks like that of a dog who lived a life in full.
