Though married to a Sicilian I have no blood lines that justify my user name. When I singed up here I had a hunting dog named Rocco -- an Italian Spinoni -- and I borrowed his name.   He was areal character, is now long gone, and I miss him a lot.

Rocco - I think that is great! My dog passed over 40 years ago and I talk to her all the time. My situation I feel, won't let me keep a dog since it would break my heart to leave my buddy alone all day. I am very lucky to work in a plaace that welcomes dogs - I keep extra special treats for my canine visitors. I even come across someone's pet that really connects with me. It is such a joy these furry friends can demonstrate!
