Puppy Week, Day 3: Rocket the Miniature Australian Shepherd Puppy

Rocket is also known as ‘Rocket Dog’, but apparently is not related to Rocket Dog Rescue. She was 11 weeks old when I ran across her, and was stopping traffic she was so cute. Not that traffic is ever going very fast at that time of day (rush hour) in that area (near the Bay Bridge). But she had a noticeable impact.

Someone is getting socialized well. Rocket’s not going to be one of those shy mini-Aussies.

She still has convertible ears. Here seen in the ‘stowed’ position.

I saw her turn those puppydog eyes on three other people walking by while I was there. They worked on all four of us.

I’m kind of surprised how big she was at 11 weeks. I would have guessed she was a regular Aussie, not a miniature.

    Absolutely adorable – I would have stopped too.

      Autumn and I have, very occasionally, actually parked the car when we were driving past something this cute, gotten out, and proceeded to pet it. Yes, it makes us look a little silly, but life is short and there are a limited supply of ridiculously adorable things to hug.
