Bio:
Rosie is on her own clock unless there is a treat to be had. She will do anything for her treats. When it's a bagel, we do not even have to give her commands. She goes through all her tricks one after another as quick as she can until she gets the bagel. Recently she has developed Cushings desease. She takes her pill without any trouble, especially since she gets 1/4 of a bagel with real butter on it. She is doing well and her hair has returned to its naturally beautiful black and tan.

It was a very hard 2 weeks. She quit eating for no reason. She was old so we thought she was just tired of her food. Just like we humans get when we get old. She still loved frozen bagels so she lived the last weeks of her life on them. She was happy when she got them, still begged for them but sometimes was not able to eat them.

The best Doctors at A&M could not help her and believe me they tried everything but in the end, Rosie just was too weak. We took pictures when we took her up there for what we thought might be the last time. She could barely walk but when I pulled out the camera, she perked up to be seen in the pictures. Forever our little trooper. Never complaining about all the picture taking, not always cooperating but always happy.

We miss her dearly but know that she is not hurting any longer. Her spirit is with us. She did what she was placed on this earth to do. She was loyal, trustworthy, genuine, loving and forever guarded her home.
