View Full Version : 1st anniversary of Rosie's passing

Rosie, my girl, I miss you so much! This is in memory of you,
my own personal Unconditional Love Expert!


Things our dogs teach us:

When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face
to be pure ecstasy.
When it's in your best interest, practice obedience.
Let others know when they've invaded your territory.
Take naps and stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you're happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
No matter how often you're scolded, don't buy into the guilt thing
and pout... run right back and make friends.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Eat with gusto and enthusiasm. Stop when you have
had enough.
Be loyal.
Never pretend to be something you're not.
If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
And MOST of all...
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and
nuzzle them gently.

Rosie certainly was a pretty girl. I know she was special to you and I hope you can take a little comfort in knowing that she's playing hard and having lots of fun at the RB.

RIP, sweet baby.

I'm going to print the "Things our dogs teach us" and hang it on the fridge. I don't think anyone should go a day without being reminded about all the things our dogs can teach us. Thanks for posting it as a tribute to your baby girl.

RIP Rosie, your mom loves you, please watch over her, and help to ease her pain. It's been a year, but to her it still feels like yesterday.

Until you meet again...

Thinking of you today, Rosie.

This is a difficult day for mommy so please look down on her and keep an eye out for her.

Rest In Peace, Sweet Rosie. Have fun playing up there at the Bridge and tell my Chloe girl I said Hello!

It just seems like yesterday.

When our furkids die the time passes so slowly, yet so fast.

I know it must have been a hard day for you and even though I didn't see this yesterday, I'll be keeping you in my thoughts today as I'm sure your still reminded of her passing today.
