We lost our Roxy yesterday......today we are trying to deal with this unbelievable grief.
There is a hole and an emptiness in our hearts that can never be filled. Roxy was the sweetest,
most gentle dog that ever was. She was loved beyond belief by "her boy" our 15 year old son.
She taught him all about unconditional love and he returned it to her.
Roxy had kidney failure and we made the difficult decision to put her to sleep. The vet told us
there was nothing else they could do for her. She never complained, even though she was very sick the last
two days of her life. She wagged her nubby little tail until the end.
I struggle to understand how our Roxy got so sick in 2 weeks time. Never again will I look over
and see my son curled up next to her in her bed. Never again will I hear him say "oh Roxy, my beautiful girl,
your so beautiful. We stayed with her until the very end, my son telling her how much he loved her and how
beautiful she was, while her Daddy held her head. There can NEVER be another dog as loving, sweet or loyal
as Roxy. The mold truly was broken. It is unbelievable the pain that is being felt.
I NEVER imagined it would hurt so deeply. I only hope she knows we did everything humanly possible to save her.
When I found out she was sick, I realized how much this dog meant to me and how willing I was to do anything to save her.
She was truly a gift from above and I pray that Roxy is safe and healthy now.
One day we will all be together again and we will never, ever let her go again. Until that day sweet Roxy we love you always. Love, Mommy,Daddy,Donnie & Brittany
