What is Rocco’s idea of a perfect day? Rocco would love to do a play session with his new brother in the back. Then head out for a nice long walk, ideally, with nobody else around. Back home to chill out in the backyard and soak up some sunshine while getting snuggles and treats.

Ha! Love this! You’ve captured his personality and also his heart. He loves his Zoe and Sarah. This is a great overview of him - we actually have a few songs picked out for Rocco (Michael Jackson’s “gotta be startin’ something “ was the first one that fit him), but will gladly add the Mumford one to his playlist Thanks for this wonderful write up and all the love you share with him.
