We had a visitor yesterday. My humans left at 9 am (on a Saturday!) and came back at about 11:30 with a Keeshond named Rocky. He was from the Prince Georges County Animal Management Division. Keeshond Lovers had a foster home that wanted to take him, but the lady couldn't pick him up until Saturday night. So my humans picked him up in the morning and kept him during the day until we took him to meet his foster mom.
Rocky was very scared at first, both of my humans and he was a little scared of me. My mom came in and got me and picked up all my toys and put them away. Then we went outside where dad had Rocky. Rocky liked me but I could tell he was a little scared, so I did everything I could to show him that I was not a threat. We went inside so that Rocky could cool off and relax. He was breathing really hard, and mom said that he had tested positive for heartworms at the shelter, so he needed to take it easy. Rocky rested for a little bit and drank some water and cooled off in the air conditioning, and then decided he wanted to play with me!
Rocky even started coming up to my humans to be petted.
Once Rocky was comfortable playing with me, he turned out to be quite a wrestler! He is really good at standing and walking on his hind legs!
You can see more videos of me and Rocky on my YouTube channel.
My humans can't wait to hear how Rocky does on his heartworm treatment. His coat also had a lot of really bad mats, so he will probably need to be clipped. I even showed him my tire toy and he didn't know what to do with it. I will post updates on Rocky when I hear how he is doing.
