Rocket and His Body-Guard in SaiGon

5 Comments

Rocket decided to employ a personal bodyguard for taking him around SaiGon.  He decided to do this after getting bit by a street dog (probably half Phu Quoc and half Husky or Wolf or something).  He wanted to take the bodyguard from a professional firm, but I offered  a very competitive price that he just couldn’t pass up.  Rock-Bottom Rates!
