Arrival Story:
We were in the mall on a rainy day (Puppy mills are bad!) when my husband decided to go into the pet shop. He saw her and fell in love with her instantly. I on the other hand did not think we were ready for a dog. My father used to tell me that men get women dogs to tie them down. My husband asked if he could take her out and as soon as he did we were sold. She stretched her little body and looked up at us with those beautiful green eyes. She was the best thing that could have happened to us! I love her sooo much!!!

"That Puppy in the Window"- 9/20/02 There she was, her soft pink belly, her beautiful innocent eyes peering her way into our hearts, locking her place into our lives forever. She was as precious as can be when we asked if we could take her out of the cage to see her closely. She was placed on the floor as the three of us sat on the carpet. Her first movement was to stretch out her legs with her bum in the air, her confidence soaring as her green eyes stared up at us. She knew this simple movement by itself would win us over as we sat with our legs crossed, staring in 'aw' knowing she was meant to be in our family. Roxy Laroo was- PERFECT. She was devoted to her core.

2 years ago I let you go
2 years... I let you fly
2 years ago it hurt me so
on the day I said "goodbye"

2 years have passed, they passed so quick
it's crazy how time goes by
and everyday I wish to see you on the other side of Skye

Back then I cried because my Heart was broken,
because I missed you being here
but now I cry because I remember you ...
all the memories, so vivid and clear.

I can feel your face resting in my hands
the way I'd cup your chin
The way you'd gaze into my eyes
and admire me from within

So solid and unfaltering
a Love so strong and true
You belonged to me, you were my girl
and I belonged to you

Everything I asked you to be
I could not ask for more
As you were to me, I am to you.... Devoted to the core ~

I miss you Roo


Those 6 last breaths

Six breaths...

6 long and labored breaths she took,
fighting the entire way.

6 times I heard myself repeat "You're a good girl Roxy, I love you",
wishing she could stay.

Though it has been more than a month,
it feels like yesterday.

Those 6 last breaths my baby took,
my mind painfully continues to replay.

Looking back,
Reliving it,
That sad and somber day.

--The other night I placed my hand upon her Urn and it felt just like I had my hand on her head. I haven't felt that in so long. I wish she was here. I would lay with her and talk to her and never let her go.

Roxy was perfect for us. She was everything. For the past 11 years we were lucky to live and breath her. How blessed were we? Roxy was a one family dog. When we used to board Roxy, the boarding staff told me "after a while most dogs adjust but Roxy never does".... that was the last time I ever boarded her. She was OURS! Dedicated and devoted to her core. She could sense every emotion. She knew what we were feeling. She gave the sweetest kisses and went wherever we went. She loved swimming and traveling and being wrapped up in blankets. She was beautiful and she loved our "photo shoots". She never refused, she would stay still as a statue until I got THE shot. She loved her bandanas and sweaters. She would turn bright red when she was nervous or hot. I had to put sunblock on her. She loved our daughter Skye from the minute we brought her home and when we would leave, every single one of Roxy's toys would be in Skye's room along with a white fur spot at the foot of the crib. Roxy was the first to greet Skye every morning and the last to leave at nap time (I always had to coax her out). She loved the boat and we would call her "Boat Dog". She loved her toys. Her favorite was her "indestructable" Jollyball (which she mastered tearing apart) and her soft 9" ballie. The soft ballie was her "soothy", she would fall asleep with it in her mouth (she had it and didn't let it go even when we had to let her go. She literally never released it upon the closing of her eyes and her last breath) She is being cremated with it. She always greeted us with a toy. She used to sleep with us until she became a bed hog and decided the couch was better and less crowded. She loved car rides. She loved to play as much as she loved to just hang out. She loved whatever it was that we did as long as she was there. She was strong and in her weakest state she still shined for us. She got up each and every time to greet us with a wagging tail and happy eyes. She was a fighter and she beat the odds. She amazed us on a daily basis. She battled cancer and rallied for us. She lived for us. She stayed strong for us. Faithful, devoted, dedicated, missed and mourned by us........ Our pain is still so fresh and raw. We miss our baby girl.... Roxy Laroo... Once a Pooty, always a Pooty
