On Thursday, Renegade lost a long battle with cancer and other health issues. He has been going downhill slowly, but started quickly getting worse, after having some heart failure problems on top of the cancer. He passed away in my arms that evening, being told what a good boy and how loved he is.
The house feels empty without him. Ella and Nacho have been doing an awesome job keeping us laughing, but today it has all hit Ella and she's now in mourning. Poor girly.
A couple photos from the last photoshoot we did, just before Christmas, when we thought we wouldn't have much time left. All photos courtesy of AllieMackie.

You taught me everything I know, Ren. You made me question myself, you made me kick myself, you made me be thankful for what I had. We miss you. I hope wherever you are, you've found Rogue and are back to bossing him around, and eating lots of chicken. You gave us an amazing 4 years. I'm sorry we couldn't have 4 more. <3

Goodbye, Rosey. You were the best girl I could have asked for. 10/15/96-03/08/13
