Hi, my name is Rocky. I live with my best friend Sunny in a tiny house in the woods. We have our rooms and anyway I don’t need too much space. Sunny and I do everything together. We eat together, play together, watch random tv shows, go for walks, chat endlessly for hours and when needed, protect each other Though I wouldn’t say Sunny is great at it. He’s taller than me but I think he’s lazy. Never gets off the stupid couch. He’s not too good at sports either. He can’t run as well as I can. But he’s great at playing hide and seek. He hides so well I’m rarely able to find him.

Our lives were going pretty great. Then one day he met her, on one of our morning walks. Well, I’m not saying she’s horrible but our lives have changed a lot in the last few months. Sunny is in love with her, I’m sure. He has changed a lot. He’s more aware of everything these days. We used to be lying around the house unbathed, smelling and stinking but now the house smells different. She’s around most of the time, so the house smells like her. It doesn’t stink but it kind of does.

I have a feeling she doesn’t like me. She never really talks to me or would leave the room if I was around. Sunny used to cook for me. Even though he doesn’t eat the same food, he’d cook non-veg for me. But now, this girl, Sandy, has brought some weird dry vegetarian alternatives into this house. Maybe she’s planning to starve me to death. Again, I don’t hate her but I don’t like Sunny being drawn away from me. He used to pat my back now and then but now he only wants to hug and kiss this new girl. We used to play all the time and now all game nights are with Sandy. It used to be Rocky Rocky Rocky and now it’s Sandy Sandy Sandy all the time.

And it’s not like I haven’t made an effort with her. I have tried to walk up to her but it’s like we don’t speak the same language. Sandy would get scared of me like I was a devil or she had seen a ghost. And she would start sneezing and coughing crazy like a nervous tick was activated. And sunny would ask me to go into my room as if this wasn’t my house and I was just a guest.

It’s been six months now. I hear her talking about moving in and something about shots that are supposed to help her manage her sneezing. I was eavesdropping so I could only hear in patches. I also heard my name and I heard talks of another roommate. They’re not planning to abandon me I hope. Sunny won’t do that. Or maybe he would. He does love her. I think someone is coming tomorrow along with her. Sunny hasn’t told me anything about it.

Sandy’s moving in today and she’s also got her new friend along, Susie. Now I know how sunny felt when he met her. Love at first sight. Susie is just the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen in my life. And for some reason, Sandy can stay in the same room as me without sneezing and crying. But I don’t care anymore. I like Susie and she likes me too. It was Sunny and Sandy’s plan to set us up. They must’ve known I was feeling lonely. Now that I have Susie, I am never going to stop wagging my tail. And neither would she. This house will be four feet, eight paws and two happy tails.
