Fans were quick to wish the dog a happy birthday, with one writing: "Happy belated birthday Rocky!! Woof woof," while another added: "My mum was looking at Barbour coats for me the other day. You look very dapper in yours Rocky, hope you had a great birthday." Dec and his presenting partner Ant both made the decision to get dogs at the same time, with Ant opting for a chocolate Labrador named Hurley. Dec previously said: "We had a bit of time off last summer so we thought it would be good to get dogs and spend time with them while they were puppies. Now are dogs are best mates… It's nice because we've got the excuse that we need to take the dogs for a walk now and then we stop for a pint."

Ant added: "It's funny because mine's a chocolate lab… and his is a daschund called Rocky. The size different is ridiculous. Your dog could walk under my dog and not get wet. They are best friends. God aye, they love each other. I can't walk past his house now without Hurley pulling me off to try and go in." Ant also revealed that his wife Lisa Armstrong sent him a birthday card from their dog while he filmed I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here in Australia. "I'm missing the missus and the dog," he told The Mirror. "The dog sent me a birthday card with big paw prints on it! But I feel great, I feel like I'm 25. I'm having a good time."
