    I finally added a page for Rose on my website. I've been wanting to do it for a long time. It's hard to believe that after all this time I still can't get though a trip down memory lane without drowning in a puddle of tears.

    Rose came to me when she was only 6 years old, already blind and deaf from neglect. This little dog had such an amazing spirit, kind heart, and devoted and loving soul.

    Rose was Amos's grandmother, though until she passed away, I didn't even know that Amos existed.

    Rose was a breeder neglect case and I brought her home after helping to shut this person down. I had Rose only a few short years but they're years that I will never forget and Rose was a dog that will be in my heart forever.

    Rose passed away in my arms on a Saturday after a terribly violent seizure.
    On Monday, I called the lady who led me to Rose originally, to thank her for Rose and to tell her of her passing.
    She could not believe what I was telling her. On Friday, the day before Rose died, she was informed that the "breeder" was up and running again and that she had Amos, Rose's grandson. He was living the same awful life that Rose had once lived, in a dark basement, kenneled 23 hours/day.....and she asked me if I could take him.

    I know this sounds strange, but it was as if Rose knew that Amos, her grandson, needed help. Rose died on Saturday and Amos was in my arms on Tuesday. I would have done anything to have Rose back but I really feel that Amos is with me now because Rose decided that that's how it should be.....

    The pictures aren't great but here's Rose's page -

    I love your bridge picture in your siggy BC, it looks so peaceful, such a nice tribute. They just never stay with us long enough....:(
     
  5. They don't 98% of my dogs have been rescues, and I've had less than 5 years with most of them. Its so hard on me, yet I keep on doing it. I'm a sucker for a dog in need.
    Thanks, Milo's Mommy made that for me. I've got a new one too, just waiting for it to be animated. Its got a rainbow bridge picture in it, too.

    I have tears in my eyes after reading and looking at Rose's beautiful pics. Amos was definitely meant to be with you. I can believe the tears you have for Rose as I've been crying over CJ this week; some don't understand why I still cry - I miss my girl too.

    I know what you mean....memory lane is bitter-sweet. What wonderful pictures. I re-read that Rainbow Bridge poem and what a tear jerker. They sure don't live long enough and make it so difficult on us. But on the other hand......Well, you know...

    And I think Rose's time with you seems to have been with real purpose. Amos was one lucky dog as was Rose to have you.
