Default Dispose Pattern

My questions are related to my previous post at http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=50274

    class Parent : IDisposable
        public void Dispose()
        protected virtual void Dispose(Boolean disposing)
            if (disposing)
                Console.WriteLine("parent managed");
            Console.WriteLine("parent unmanaged");
            Console.WriteLine("parent dtor");

    class Child : Parent
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
            if (disposing)
                Console.WriteLine("child managed");
            Console.WriteLine("child unmanaged");
            Console.WriteLine("child dtor");
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Child c = new Child();
            Console.WriteLine("end main");

In my understanding, when I call c.Dispose(), GC.SuppressFinalize(this) will suppress Child.Finalizer only. However, the output differs from what I hope -- both Parent.Finalizer and Child.Finalizer are suppressed. Please help me to digest it.

Note: Since Parent has implemented its Finalizer, Child.Finalizer must not be implemented to avoid twice disposing when we forget to call Child.Dispose(). I create Child.Finalizer here just to support this problem.
