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.
