My Rocco may look like a big, mean junk-yard dog, and act like a fearless protector, but it's all for show. I promise. His bark is worse than his bite (pardon my unoriginality).
Really, he might as well be a bitty lap dog.
He wouldn't harm a fly, well, maybe a fly... or a frisbee, or a mouse, or a spider, or a moth... which is fine- welcomed even.
But attack mode truly sets when he's challenged by his worst enemy- the wickedly dreadful garden hose of doom.
DUN DUN DUNNNN!
It's just a regular hose, but to Rocco, it's the most vile, loathed, heinous and terrifying thing in all the universe...
He wants to kill this thing- truly make it suffer.
ANNNNDDDD it's pretty hilarious to watch him try.
Revenge is sweet.
