Beautiful girl … you were in so much pain and we tried to help you … too late.  You were the sweetest girl, the best mama, the prettiest girl.  We miss you, we cared for you, we hoped to help you but your body gave out.  We are grateful that in the end you left without pain, in your sleep, finally resting after tortuous days of pain, suffering, infection.  I’ll hold you close Rosie girl, every time I hold your son, my boy Jericho.  Thank you for bringing him into the world, thank you for loving and caring for him and the countless other puppies you had.  Rest now sweet girl.  Know you were loved.  Play free of pain on the other side, and wait for us when we join you on the other side?  Blessed be Rosie.
