A Tribute to dear Rose

Hi all, just wanted to share with you some pictures of a wonderful black Lab named Rose. Dear sweet Rose went to doggie heaven last week. She developed lyme disease and the Vets were unable to cure her.Though I am a cat person, there are several dogs in this world that I adored - Rose was one of them. Last year when I went to help out my friend Jackie after her knee surgery, I was thrown in to the dog walking group where I meet and fell in love with Rose.
Gunther, my friend Jackie's Duchsund, and Rose were the best of friends. Whenever I would walk Gunther he always headed to Rose's house and when walking with the dog walking group - Gunther was watched over by sweet Rose.
Rose had a beautiful coat, a sweet and gently way about her, and a lovely way she walked. I always felt that she had the gait of a well bred horse. She would lift her feet is such a way that was lovely to watch. I will miss this sweet lady and my heart and prayers go out to her owners Judy and Bob.

Thank you all for stopping by and reading this - I felt that Rose needed to be somehow immortilized for she was truly a treasure.

Awww She sure looks like she was sweet dog. She is well cared for in heaven.

I am glad that Rose came into your life. I grew up with cats and though I love them I now have two dogs and could never my life without them, there is not a day that goes by that they do not make me laugh outloud,animals are precious!

Rose looks like such a beautiful dog Roberta. Her coat is so sleek, and what a great companion to Gunther. It is so sad when someone looses a pet. Furry creatures are indeed one of life's greatest treasures. How sweet to pay tribute to Rose.

She looks like a very sweet dog. Sorry to hear she is gone. You have good memories of her though.

Poor sweet Rose. Heart breaking to have to say good by to a beloved pet. Funny how they go straight to our hearts.

Oh, Roberta,

I know how you will all miss dear Rose--she was a very special girl. It is so very hard to lose them. One of our veterinarians told me, "Just remember, she is not gone; just gone on ahead." and I believe that is true.

Love and prayers for your healing hearts,
