Farewell to My Best Friend, Super Rocky Dog!
A few months ago we brought Rocky to the vet for a checkup, and received the horrible news that he had cancer. What I thought would only be a few short weeks for him, turned into a glorious few months. As much as hated to, and would have kept Rocky forever, we laid Rocky to rest yesterday. Instead of being selfish and letting him wither away and suffer in pain, we gave him the gift of euthanization. Since moving into our new home and bringing Rocky in, we got to spend so much more time with him and keep so much better care of him. Now that he is gone, everything is out of whack and nothing will ever be the same. There are no amount of words I could write or express to show how special Rocky was to everyone he met.
Nothing will ever be the same without Rocky. He will be missed.
Since I work from the house, and Reena works outside of the house, it was great to spend so much time with Rocky. He would walk around the house and come strolling into my office room all the time. Even though it has only been a day, it is so weird and horrible without him. Just sitting in my office room now and hearing any creaks or house noises… I still think he is here and going to stroll into my room. Rocky would have turned 15 years old on April 1st.
It’s so important to appreciate everything you have. We never would have been able to give Rocky the great life and care he needed in his last months if I wasn’t able to work from home. I would wake up several times a night to check on him or let him outside and always keep him company during the day. Never once did I complain if I had to take him outside, make him breakfast or clean up after… I simply appreciated every moment I had with him. If you are thinking about getting a dog or pet, don’t forget about the thousands of homeless pets in animal shelters that would love nothing more than for you to take them home and give them a second chance at life.
We will miss you Rocky!
