May 13, 2002 – August 30, 2010
We are very sad to report the loss of another FFGR, Inc. greyhound. I’ ve known Rocket very well for many years. In fact, I saw him all the time when I got my hair cut. Rocket was adopted by Celeste and Kurt Hornbecker in March of 2006. They also adopted another female from our group named Sadie.
Rocket had been having problems with his back and x-rays showed serious problems with his spine that could not be treated. Celeste and Kurt made the painful decision to send Rocket to the Rainbow Bridge Thursday evening. Rocket was ten years old last May.
I loved going to visit Celeste and saying hello to Rocket and Sadie. Every time I walked in to Celeste’s shop, the dogs would be behind a dutch door and they jumped up to greet me. I loved seeing them and saying hello. Then they would both go lie down on their beds and go to sleep. When I got ready to leave, we said our goodbyes. Rocket was a very handsome dog. There was no doubt about how much he was loved.
I know that Kurt and Celeste will miss their handsome red brindle boy; he was so loved by so many people around in the Boonsboro area.
Fly free sweet boy; one day we will all be together again at the bridge.
