About Rocky . . . (as written by Bonnie Geall)
Rocky simply loves life. We sometimes joke that he could be the Wal Mart greeter greeting people (& dogs) with not only a smile but that oh-so-cute happy boxer body wiggle!  From outdoor walks to adventures in agility and conformation training, he has demonstrated that he is a good little worker, especially when it is fun and involves that tasty liver bait or sausage!  He has a stubborn streak and has proven that he is very head strong.  But on the flip, he becomes very soft and sensitive when he senses someone needs him for comfort or if he is scolded for eating one of Mom's plants!   He is happiest when he is the centre of attention, especially if that means cuddle time!  Rocky is truly a joy in our lives and has made our hearts and home complete.  We are very happy and lucky to have him. Rocky is a litter mate to Declan, Rooney, Lennon, and Abby who have all been showing in Canada.

Rocky’s show career . . .
Rocky and Bonnie have been going to handling classes; they have fun and have been learning lots -- and that's evident from the first time they entered an actual dog show. They look like they've been doing this for more than just a few months! Rocky is a boisterous puppy outside the ring but knows what his job is once he's inside the ring. Rocky is the 6th champion for his dam.
