Rocky

These are pics of my beautiful boy Rocky . We adopted Rocky from Gsrs in March 2013 and had 3 wonderful but short years with him.

Rocky was a lot of work in the beginning as he had major issues with other dogs so for the whole of our first year together we travelled every Sunday to sessions with Paul at wolf speak.

Rocky's issues with other dogs was never totally overcome however we got to a point where he would tolerate other dogs and that was fine.

Rocky didn't take long to settle in with us and didn't take him long to become a mummy's boy ! He also had an obsession with his ball , he always had a ball wherever he went.

Rocky started being out of sorts early this year and after countless vets visits scans and x Rays it was discovered his liver was not functioning properly and they couldn't get to the bottom of it the next step was going to be open him up however when his bloodwork came back it was all over the place and therefore it would not have been wise as he probably wouldn't have survived the procedure.

Rocky deteriorated very quickly and I had to make a heartbreaking decision to end his suffering . At 3.40 on tues 5th April I lay down with my beautiful boy and held him until he went to sleep for the last time.

We are all heartbroken and devestated to loose him at such a young age as he was just a baby only 5 . We would like to thank Gars and Eileen for allowing us to have this special boy in our lives.

Goodnight baby boy love and miss you millions

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
