Our sweet Rocky has passed away..
I just thought I would let you all know
that Rocky has passed away Sunday morning before
I went to work. Last week he took a turn for the
worse and he died on Sunday morning.
He had just turned 12 in November.
Rocky is one of the dogs that is rare to find.
We have had him since I was 11 or older.
We got him when we had to put our basset/beagle mix
down around Christmastime.
He filled the void and brings the
Christmas/holiday spirit around in this family
and it's going to be a very hard
Christmas without our Rocky boy.
He's the reason I get very excited for Christmas
like I am a little kid all over again.
He has always sat beside me at Christmas
while I am opening my presents.
He has touched all the people that
was lucky enough to meet him especially our family.
He has touched our family in so many ways and
I just feel like my heart has been ripped out and
broken into a million pieces.
He never met a person he didn't
like and vice versa.
Everyone loved him.
He's been to so many family reunions and was
in our family Christmas card last year.
When he went to the lake for family picnics
he would go with us and always
went by the water with me. So everytime we
went to the lake
he would swim a little and be right by my side.
It will be hard
going without him now.
