Baby Roo About Rooney:  aka Momma Roo (Mom-R), aka Roosevelt, aka Mac-A-Rooney, aka Roo, aka RoonErRator, aka Baby Roo, aka Yoda, aka Buppy, aka ... ahh, she answered to just about anything that dad called her.  She was the 11 year old matriarch and momma of this whole stinkin' BC Clan and was also the primary mouser on the place.  Not only was she Chief Investigator, she also had mom-D and dad in her back pocket - she really did Rule the Roost, and would really "speak" her mind when things weren't going as she had planned.  We lost Rooney to multiple rattlesnake bites on August 18, 2015.
