Goodnight my Sweet Rockstar


So we did have to have Roxie put to sleep this afternoon. I'm just thankful that we didn't have to make a decision, the doctor said that she should be put to sleep, her quality of life was not going to improve. Even though I was prepared that this would happen, I still was not prepared for how painful it would be to hear the doctor tell us. Wow, was it difficult. We stayed with her as she went, which was also difficult but thankfully it was extremely quick. Everyone was so kind. And now she is young again, younger than we ever knew her, frolicking in heaven and happy. I can't reflect on what happened now, but I just wanted to let everyone know that she passed and to thank them for their kind words.

I'm so sorry. :-( I know it's hard but am happy that you guys know that it was for the best, and now Roxie is up there, running, jumping and looking over you guys.
