Rocket Carrington


July 23, 2007 – December 4, 2017

Rocket belonged to a close friend, who had bought him as a puppy.  Our friend had to move and could not keep him; after one other home, he came to live with us in 2010.   Rocket loved to run and he loved to snuggle with us.  He enjoyed playing with his stuffed candy cane that has a squeaker.  Rocket could pull his lips back and show you his smile; we’d say show me your smile and he would!

Rocket always barked first to greet us or his visitors.  He would return home wagging his tail and then roll over to gets his belly rubbed.  He was Kim’s shadow, always 2 or 3 feet away from her.  Rocket loved to help make the bed by smoothing the sheets with his body from one end of the bed to the other.  He liked to play hide and seek or peek-a-boo with the blankets and sheets.

Rocket is survived by his human family, Kim and Marylyn; and his fur family; felines – Winky, Claire, Teddy and canines – Jake and Dixie.
