rosie-2-web.jpg

Had to say goodbye to my dear old doggy this morning. Rosie had reached the grand old age of 15 and it looked like she had developed a tumour in her throat. She was a flatcoat cross and had the sweetest nature, faithful to the end and would follow my husband everywhere. We got her from a local animal sanctuary and when we first had her she was so frightened it took her a while to settle in but once she did she made friends with everyone. Very sad she has gone but so happy she has been part of our lives.

No matter what platitudes we tell ourselves..................it still hurts! I hope you and your family can find comfort in knowing she had a good life with you. Smile

I can imagine removing the grass seeds from her coat was a bit of a job!

Karen is right, it still hurts, like the loss of any loved one does. They are family members, only difference is they have four legs, not two.

When our beloved pets die we can all take comfort in knowing that they had happy lives with us and had the best care we could give. What a beautiful dog, and I'm sure you have many, many wonderful photographs to cherish.

It always hard to lose a friend, including a dog friend. You gave her a good life and looked after her until the end.
I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.
best wishes,

Dogs become part of the family and the pain of loss is very real.

You gave her a good life and have happy memories of her which will hopefully help ease the loss

Rosie was just beautiful,
We had to say goodbye to our Colin earlier this year who sounds so much like Rosie,
He was a stray and took so much work to settle in but I guess like Rosie gave more than he took.
It will get easier, says I with tears in my eyes.
Thinking of you and your husband on this very sad day.

We are just so sad. You don't realise what a huge part of your life they become until it is time to say goodbye. Sad
