If you could take a moment

Post by agingcrossbower » Tue Aug 16, 2016 9:59 am

My very best friend Rocco had to be rushed to the hospital this morning. Rocco is a cocker and he lost use of his back legs and the Doc notice that his eye movement was moving up and down which would be brain related. He had been with me 24/7 for 12+ years and if you could say a prayer for him I would surely appreciate it. Not sure what life would be without him.

Mike, he's beautiful! I will certainly pray for little Rocco and I hope he's okay. My old girl Chrissy, my yellow lab, turned 12 in June and is absolutely my baby.

It's amazing how attached we can get to our K9 friends. My lab is only 3 and I can't imagine not having her around...

You and your fuzzy best buddy are in our prayers Mike. I know how difficult it can be as I sit here with a G/Dane attempting to sit on my lap. Nothing compares to the companionship a Dog gives
