We adopted Rosco(e) after seeing his photo on your site
His eyes just spoke to me and seemed to be asking for me
to give him a good home. Although my husband always said we should not have two
dogs and said no to every dog I showed him, he said yes
right away when I showed him the page on Roscoe.
He looked so sad and his tail had
been cut off.
I told my husband that if we didn't adopt him and
provide him with the care he needed, a veterinarian, no
|I instantly fell in love with his eyes, he
was so sweet and calm. We took him home and built him a new bed with 4" thick
memory foam mattress so it would be better on his hips.
He didn't do much the first few days and seemed very
sad. I spent as much time as possible with him, petting
him and feeding him. He never made a noise. His
personality gradually came back and he would wag his
little tail, chew on sprinkler heads, chase after
lizards and lay in the sun.
He loved to lie
outside in the front yard and watch the kids playing, he
would be in heaven if another dog came by and played
with him. He would bark or howl at me if he wanted
something or if I was not paying enough attention to
him. Unfortunately, his legs were never that great and
slowly he had more and more difficulty walking and more
recently, couldn't get up any longer. We decided it was time when he didn't smile or wag his little tail anymore.
Thank you Roscoe for coming into our lives and making it
so much more fulfilling. You were a very special dog and in the 2 short years
that we had you, you have put an permanent mark in our
hearts and we will love you until the day we die. I have included a photo of him last year when he was out
in the front yard watching the kids and smiling.
Romeo (formerly Napoleon)
was the most tender hearted and sweetest living
being I have ever known.
He was the quintessential
golden retriever, so smart, sensitive, happy, sunny
personality, gentle, and he understood everything.
He lived 11 1/2 years and we had almost 11 happy
Thank you for allowing me the honor
of being the guardian of such a beautiful loving
