I can't believe that it's been 8 years since I got my darling Rose!!! Daisy had gotten sick and had to be at the vet's all day. I went to pick her up, and being Daisy, she would not let anyone reach into her cage for her. They asked me to come back and get her, and on the way, I passed a cage with Rosie in it. She looked amazingly like my dog who had died about a year previously, and although I thought about it a week, I went back for her. I had been looking for a playmate for Daisy, and this dog needed a home (the vet had been keeping her for the city animal control since they were out of space there) and the rest was history. I remember going to meet her for the first time on Saturday after considering it for a week, and when I sat down on the floor of the vet's office, she crawled into my lap and sighed. That was it. I guess it really wasn't unexpected, since I had bought a collar and leash to take with me! LOL
I love you with all my heart, Rose. Thank you for 8 wonderful years, and here's looking for many more!
