I was horrified and very deeply saddened to learn of yours and OUR loss of Rocket. He was such a wonderful part of life, when tuning into Greytalk. Thank you for sharing Rocket's story. I hadn't heard it before. Your paths were meant to cross. You were so lucky he found you and you him!!

I just wish that our babies could stay longer.

So, So sorry for your loss.

Don and Chris, a few years ago I was planning to visit Phoenix for my aunt's 90th birthday until an east coast snowstorm canceled my flight. Although I was saddened to not visit my aunt, I could never let her know that I was even more disappointed to miss out on a chance to meet Rocket.

 

Farewell, sweet Rocket. You were a very good boy.

I already sent my condolences on FB, but I want to do it here too. My heart sank when I saw Rocket's name. I wouldn't believe it at first. He will always be a Greytalk favorite. I always think of Rocket when I get fries.

2 years ago today this wonderful boy had to leave us.  While it still feels like yesterday and I miss him like he just left us, he is still making me laugh every day when I think of his antics and the number of ways he "worked the system" to put one over on me all the time. 

If I reached in my pocket he assumed I was getting car keys and ran to the door, he was always ready for a ride.  If I said the word "gas," he ran to the door because going to fill-up the car was his job. If we were discussing getting burgers from a fast food place, the question "What do you want on it?" made him jump up from the bed and go to the door because he knew there would be a ride to the drive-thru.  The words "walk" or "ride" caused him to fly through the house to the back door, even if they were only being used in casual conversation. There were times that we had to go for both after accidentally saying one or the other. 

I also hate having a whole banana to myself.  He never begged for human food except for his love of French Fries. I can still picture the drool running on my leg as he hovered over my lap for one fry after another. He also showed up in front of me every night at 8:15 on the dot because he wanted his ice cream. He got a spoonful or two each night and then went out for his last turnout.  At about 4:30 each morning he got up and took a tour of the house, checking each room to make sure that everything was okay. I called him "The Night Watchman" when he started doing that.  At least now these things bring a smile or a laugh and not as many tears as they used to.  He's shown up in dreams at times and I wake up thinking he is still here and look over to his bed, only to find Petunia or Kate.  He will definitely always be here.  

We love you and miss you buddy.

You have such wonderful memories of Rocket, which hopefully helped to ease your hearts with time. He sounded like a real character!

Oh, how these marvelous dogs find a way to amuse us, causing both pain and delight at remembering their past antics.

What a wonderful update for his remembrance this year.  Isn't it amazing how they teach us some of the most important things from the bridge? You are right, he taught you well. He will be with you always. His presence on this forum is still palpable.  Rocket is still a part of us all and oh how wonderful that is. God bless you and Rocket! Always loved. Never forgotten. :beatheart:kiss2:ghplaybow:beatheart
