Losing the Rock
Rocky, the little rescue Chug (Chi-Pup) that arrived in our home in late August from Scooters Pals rescue. We were to foster him while awaiting his "forever home." He was in poor condition, and had to have half his teeth pulled and put on meds for his back disc. Over time and with lots of love and TLC he became a sweet little hug bug. Rocky took ill a week before Christmas, but despite valiant efforts by 3 vets and Scooters Pals financial assistance, he went "home" on 12/26/10. He gave me one last kiss a hour before he passed. We learned alot from each other. I learned that even a little dog in serious pain, that had been abandoned after 10 years can turn around and give lots of love, and that 4 months of friendship can feel like a lifetime. Rocky is sleeping under the great Cedar Tree next to Harry and Bella. I love you my little friend. Next time, please stay longer . . . .
Happy New Year all. Hug your loved ones.
