In Memory of Rocky

Our little buddy Rocky died today.  He was a sheltie rescued by my brother 5 years ago or so and had obviously lived on the road a while before Kevin found him.  We didn't know how old he was but he had a brave spirit and was always sweet no matter what happened.  

He had lived with my parents and his step-brother Rowdy for a few years and had been struggling with his health the last 4 months or so.  He suddenly lost ability to be able to breathe properly and we lost him this morning despite the vet's best efforts.  My mom and dad are heart-broken and it has not been a good day.  We will miss Rocky and hope that he's up in doggie heaven playing with his beloved soccer ball.

God Bless You for making his last years comfortable and secure. We'll all be together again someday.
