Sweet Rosie

Rose and her daughter Lilly
My sweet and sassy puppy was snuggled next to me on the couch this morning when I opened my e-mails. In my in-box was an e-mail from my friend Deb, the message she sent told me that her sweet Rosie went to dog heaven this weekend.
A little over two weeks ago Rosie was at a beach party having a great time. A few days later she wasn't feeling well so Deb took her to the vet, her liver was in bad shape...Rosie was in a lot of pain and surgery wasn't an option.
Rosie never met my new girl Bergie, but Deb and I talked about getting the girls together so that Rosie could teach naughty Bergie some manners, sort of like a big sister.
We never got that chance.
We just never know what tomorrow will bring, so let's all give our puppies a hug, take them for a walk, or a drive...and maybe an extra treat or two.
In loving memory of Rosie.

Oh what a difficult thing. We are going through cat health problems...Your friend will be in my thoughts.

I hope Bergie can learn some manners somewhere...

So tough when pets are ill and die. I love my 11-year-old rat terrier and so do my boys. She's my only daughter.

My heart goes out to your friend. I will keep her in my prayers.

Having lost my cat of 18 years a few weeks ago this brought fresh tears to my eyes.
My thoughts go out to your friend Deb for her loss.

Oh, this makes me so sad! My condolences to your friend. I know this pain and my heart aches for her.

Aw, so sad. Why do pets have to go so soon? Wouldn't it be great if they lived a human life? I hope your friend is feeling better soon.
