RIP to a shelter dobe named Rosie
Just want to pay tribute to my friend's dog if it's ok.. I promise I won't take long.
She was a strange red color, with some faded spots on her, and was very self assured, seemed to smile with happiness in her heart. I saw this dog only a few times but was never shy of me or growled even barked at me when I came. This dog now named Rosie was the dog I mentioned awhile ago running the fence line and moving railroad ties. This dog was such a sweet girl and little was known about her, about how she ended up in the local shelter. My friend just happend to stop there, probably giving supplies and saw her, and said she had room for her. The previous owners didn't seem really interested in getting her back and don't know if they were the original owners or not.
Anyway, the other day I guess Rosie had hurt her back very badly and was in severe pain. She couldn't even lay down so she stood throughout most of the days and nights. The vet put her on pain meds and was monitoring her but as time played out she just wasn't getting any relief. Unable to come up with the funds for any surgery if that would even fix the problem the vet and my friend decided the most humane decision was to put her at rest. I felt so bad when my friend told me what happend, it broke my heart that she had no other choice but I know it was best for Rosie. I loved that poor girl, she was so sweet and full of life. I don't know how much love she got from where she came from, but I do know that she got love from my friend. Shelter dogs have such a hard life, you never know what happend to them and yet they always seem to show the most love and happiness to whoever will give them the time. And I think she deserves to be mentioned just for her.
So, I just want to say Rosie, I am glad I got to meet you, and I will miss your sweet kisses, you were a good girl and I won't forget you, I promise. RIP and run now free of pain, you can run to your hearts content.
