he’s got a j-o-b

Rocky has an important job, which is more than I can say for the rest of the furry brood.

He and I volunteer through our local humane society, teaching kids about companion animals.  The poor little guy endures endless, disparaging questions (“why are his eyes so bulgy?”) and being bum-rushed by grade-schoolers.

Little did we know when we adopted this then-scrappy stray would he be so easy going.  I guess it’s a little karmic payback for having Gherkin, who is 72% evil.

We get occasional drawings and thank yous from the kids.  Some recents:

Looks just like us, no?
