Rocketman soars over the Rainbow Bridge

We just received the sad news that my tripawd pal Rocky has passed away after living (and loving) life on three legs for nearly two years.

Rocky after Osteosarcoma Amputation

Rocky was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in July, 2006 and his wonderful people immediately went into action for their beloved pup. After amputation and chemotherapy, this nine year old shepherd mix bounced back and was “cancer free, and doing GREAT” until recently. He left us to rest in peace on April 3, 2008.

You will be dearly missed Rocketman. We were honored to be part of your extended pack.

  1. I’m so sorry to hear that Rocky had to leave. We’re thinking of you.

  2. Sorry to hear about Rocky. As I get ready to start this new journey with my Kellie, I hope and pray that she can have the same amount of wonderful years that Rocky did. Lots of hugs your way and my prayers are with you at this difficult time. No doubt in my mind that Rocky and Blue are together and playing happy and healthy once again. Until you meet again….

  3. Thank you for your sympathy…Hopefully Rocky and Blue found each other at the Bridge and will be playing together on 4 legs 🙂 We will see them again someday…that keeps me going… Laura

  4. I’m SOOOOOOOOOOO sorry! We lost our dog Blue to osteosarcoma last July, and Taylor will be joining her soon. I understand the pain you must be feeling!!!!
