Our Roscoe

Well how do you begin...At the beginning I guess..This is a picture of our Roscoe(our little MinPin ) at Christmas time,Sitting with Dad watching the fireplace,

For ten awesome years he has been our 4 legged little boy.

He had such a puppy Spirit until the end,

Roscoe's nick name was Attitude ,He always had Attitude that made you smile or just flat out do a belly laugh....

Angel our 4 legged little girl (cocker) was his little sis and they both acted just like real brothers and sisters.Protective of each other..

To be short

We had to totally unexpected ,put Roscoe to sleep yesterday.

I stayed and held him to the end. I know every one has lost a loved animal.
And knows the pain is that is so unreal.I just had to write hoping maybe this will help heal,


Angel is really moppie,I feel her not knowing as she keeps looking.. but knowing some thing is wrong, Today I decided to start bein Thankful and celebrate the awesome 10 year we were blessed to have our Roscoe.He will never be forgotten and always be loved, I'm one of those that firmly believes we will see our loved animals as our loved one once again one day in heaven!

I am so sorry about Roscoe. I know what you are going through and it is very, very difficult to cope with the loss of a beloved pet. You are right - you will see him again one day in heaven. He'll be waiting there with his tail wagging.

Sherrie darlin', I'm so saddened to read this. Was he ill?
My heart breaks for you. But I too believe we will see our beloved pets again. I'll be keepin' you close in prayer.
Have you read "Rainbow Bridge" poem? Heck, I cry every time I read it. But its a good cry. :> )

RAINBOW BRIDGE
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
