Rocket

Rocket is a black pit bull terrier who has been bred and trained as a bomb-sniffing dog!

Rocket lives at Spadros Manor and is the best bomb-sniffing dog in the city of Bridges. He seems to be particularly good at alerting people to the presence of gunpowder residue after a gun has been fired. Jacqui tells us:

[Rocket] could smell when you had fired a gun hours before, and would bark.

Which almost gets Jacqui into trouble later on …

There are all sorts of legends about the relationship that the Victorians had with their pit bulls – using them for everything from security to babysitting. It’s unclear how much of this is true. I’ve only met one pit bull and she was a real sweetheart.

In any case, Rocket is a good dog and an important member of the Spadros Family, because he protects the entire estate from anyone who might want to send a bomb … although the outside of Spadros Manor can withstand a bomb blast, it’s unclear about the inside.

So everyone is glad Rocket is around, and he works for the Family every day of the year.
