   Leave a bone for Rachmaninoff

Rocky, Rocket Man, Floopy, Flop Master Bob, The Flopster, Borz-wah, Borz-wah-bee,

Quick Bio:

Running (Sleeping is a close second). If it moves, he'll chase it. He also likes torturing/playing with his brother, Samson ( a yellow lab) and playing chase around the backyard at lightspeed.

Doesn't like having his head pet.

Favorite Toy:
Anything moving at speed.

Favorite Food:
Wright's Raw Chicken and Veggies, raw ground beef, raw chicken wings and necks.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere. He's a go0d traveler.

Best Tricks:
Can stand on his back legs for about 10 seconds for a treat.

Arrival Story:
Rachmaninoff was put into my arms by the breeder and I was told to hold him. How could I put him back? He's been with me ever since.

He's traveled to many places including Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Grand Canyon, Olympic Rain Forest, and Mt. Shata Nat. Parks. He went to Victoria, British Columbia, Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco. Rocky has made friends in many places but I still think his favorite spot in curled up on the bed. Rocky use to do many of the local shows and he moves wonderfully in the ring (so I was told) but he's a bit small for a male and only an Australian judge ever thought he should get some points. He's since been neutered and has had the opportunity just once to try his paw at lure coursing. He LOVES it!

After a long battle with stomach cancer, I finally had to say goodbye to my dearest friend. He actually made it eight months past the date of being diagnosed with cancer, which is about two months past the normal life span for a dog with this diagnosis.
