    That is fantastic! I would really like to know what color Rocky used to be, before turning gray. He sure looks comfortable in your arms, that’s for sure. I have 4 doxies & 3 chihuahuas. All rescues. They are now models on my website and at shows sporting their custom made harnesses, harness dresses, & coats. I adore my dogs and wont have friends that don’t like them. It’s all about them.
