Name: Rocco

Age: 15

Birth date or Gotcha Date: September 13, 2000

Where do you live? Atlantic Beach, NY USA

What is your favourite time of the day?
When I see my momma get ready to go upstairs to bed – I am so happy because I know we will have at least 8 hours of snuggle time all night long!

What is your favourite food?
I am cray cray over rotisserie chicken! Even if I am dead asleep, when momma brings it home, I wake up and start running around in circles!

Do you have a toy that you can’t live without?
I have a bedraggled little stuffed bear that was my human sister’s and it’s been mine for many years and it’s smelly and worn out but I love it, and we call it Baby.

What do you hate the most?
Being alone!!!!!

What do you love the most? 
Do you even have to ask???? Momma, momma, momma!!!

Do you have any bad habits?
I’ve been known to lift my leg and pee in the house, but shhhhh don’t tell anyone!!!

What do you think is your best quality?
I am always in a good mood and ready to snuggle!

What does a typical day look like for you?
Basically, if I’m not eating or going out for a walk in my stroller, I am napping! And then it’s time for bed – I can sleep for about 10 hours straight thru at night! I am NOT a morning pug!

I love the way you wear so many awesome different pieces of headwear. How many do you have and what is your favourite piece?
I must have at least 15 hats, and if you count headbands as hats, then I have over 30! I think wearing something on my head makes me look young and dapper! I also love wearing flower crowns! I really don’t think I can pick a favorite, but I get a lot of use out of little sparkly fedoras from Party City that only cost $1 and come in many colors and patterns!

What is life like in New York for a pug and what do you enjoy most about living in New York?
I live about 20 miles outside of NYC and my life here is all about the beach! The Atlantic Ocean is a block away from my house so I consider myself a beach bum pug! My favorite thing about NY is the change of seasons because I get to wear a lot of different types of outfits!

    How wonderful to hear such a lovely story about an oldie doing so well! Loved the pics and what a great place to live – certainly a recipe for longevity (along with such adoring caretakers of course too). We wish you well!
