goodbye roxy baby…

i write this post with a heavy heart and lots of tears… this has been nothing short of a rough week. i normally try to keep this site strictly business related, however, as hard as this is for me to share, i think it will help me heal.

on monday we lost our roxy… the best, most adorable frenchie ever. for those that know me, you know how much she meant to me and our family. she was my first dog, my only dog, our families only dog, my baby. she was only seven, however she spent the last 3 years of her life as a paraplegic. three years ago this august, a disc in between her 3rd and 4th lumbar calcified and exploded into her spinal cord. after a 6 hour surgery to remove the disc, we were told she would have a 10% chance of ever having the ability to use her back legs in any capacity. the news was devastating but we still had our roxy. she never regained any feeling or movement in her lower back or back legs.

we were lucky to have the past three years with her.

unfortunately over the past few weeks it became more and more apparent that her little frail body could no longer handle the terrible cards she had been dealt.

we had to say good bye. the hardest thing i have ever had to do.

we took these photos just shortly before…

sweet dreams my sweet baby roxy. we hope that where ever you are – you can run and jump, eat all the popcorn you can, and are being the little diva you always were…

I am so sorry about your baby Roxy. I saw your post and read it and looked at all the pictures and that baby was really loved. She is in a good place now. I feel sad. I have had a few animals that I have had to say “goodbye” to and it is the hardest thing I have ever done. So I am sending sympathy to you and your family. Thanks

Stacie,

I’m so sorry to hear about your dog. Losing a pet is like losing a family member, so I know how hard this must be for your and your family. You can tell in your pictures that she loved you all as much as you loved her. My thoughts and prayers are with you guys through this tough week.
