It’s my birthday! A look back at 10 years with Rocky the Bull Terrier

Hi my friends! Thought I would take a small break from the travel blog to celebrate my tenth birthday!

look at that cake!

I know, I can’t believe it myself that I have been on Earth for ten years!

It seemed like only yesterday that I was born to a lovely family of champion bull terriers in Indiana and then delivered by a flying stork to my new dad Danny in the Washington DC area. (At least he told me it was a stork). He worked there for a couple of years and then around 2010-2011 we moved to our hometown of Orlando Florida and stayed there until 2014-2015 when we moved to England and began traveling.

I am ten years old now and have been traveling for about four years in Europe and throughout that time I’ve seen 20 countries. I still feel like a puppy and I still feel there’s quite a bit left to do before I retire.

I would love to see all European Union countries (I’m about halfway now) and then maybe next year, I would love to take a cross country road trip by RV and see all 50 US states with my dad. Then if it’s possible, I would love to see an Asian country or two.

After that, our plan is to settle down and adopt an adult bull terrier so I can have a friend into my “senior years”.

I will still be able to travel here and there (maybe to more relaxing destinations) as I don’t think I will ever stop.

Now here’s  a few photos throughout the years that I managed to dig up!
