John Burns’ dog ‘Rocky’ sadly passed away over the weekend.

John Burns’ beloved dog, Rocky, sadly passed away over the weekend.

John Burns told 3AW Breakfast – ‘The house is strangely empty’.

Rocky was a 14-year-old Border Collie cross Kelpie.

?The Burns family rescued him many years ago. 

Rocky was more than a pet, he was family.

Rocky was more than a pet, he was family.

Rocky’s (Rocca’s) previous owners were Collingwood supporters, and Burnso couldn’t stomach that, forcing the name change. 

The beloved pooch also sported a red collar, so he wasn’t just black and white.
