We said good-bye to our beloved Rocky Road on Monday afternoon. He was diagnosed with kidney disease about 4 years ago. We were hoping to be able to manage it for longer than this and we tried everything humanly possible, but it wasn't enough. It just wasn't meant to be. Logically I know my heart will eventually mend, but right now my heart is broken in a million pieces. I'm devastated and not doing so well, but I know I have to be strong for Dusty. It's not easy for him either.
We will ALWAYS love you, dear sweet Rocky and will ALWAYS miss you. You touched our hearts & lives in so many wonderful, loving ways.
Loving & missing you with all our hearts ...
Rocky Road 10-11-2002 to 2-10-2014

Oh, Susan, my heart is breaking for you and Dusty over the loss of Rocky. :cry You and your boys hold a piece of many hearts here. I wish there were words that could help comfort, but only time will ease the pain and sadness you are feeling. You are such a wonderful dog mommy. I just want to give you both a great big (((HUG))).

Susan:

I'm so sorry to hear about Rocky Road. I have always admired how "perfect" their grooming was and tried to emulate (unsuccessfully) their "look." He looks so sweet in that picture and I have no doubt he was. Please know that I will keep you and Dusty in my prayers for peace and healing in the weeks ahead. Take care.
