After visiting with Grandma, we headed to Uncle Craig & Aunt Beth's, where Peter's Christmas gift was waiting... Boy was Peter ever excited to meet Rocky!
Grandma Billie & Grandpa Cliff were in on this surprise, too, having housed Rocky for the past 10 days to provide for the Christmas surprise. And Peter WAS surprised!
Seen here playing with Uncle Craig & Aunt Beth's new Boxer puppy (Finnegan), Rocky had the sweetest red bow on his collar (thanks, Beth!).
Rocky was a perfect pup in the car on the ride home (3+ hours), besides the unbelievable amount of light fur he shed everywhere. As the boys hopped in the car to go to Mass this morning, their black dress pants were soon covered in Rocky fur! We found Rocky thru an e-list, and adopted him from a soldier who is being deployed. Our prayers are with him, and all the men and women who serve in our military. Their sacrifices are often subtle.
