Favorite Food:
Hmmmmmmmmmmm................. Thinking.........Hmmmmmmmmmmm............Food they won't let me have! Hill's Science Diet is what I get. Dr. Kevin said 90 % Dog Food and 10 % treats for pets a day is my limit! Yummy!!! I maintain my perfect weight.

Favorite Walk:
Playing NASCAR when Mom plays with me in the backyard. I always WIN!!! Walking to Sally Belle's house to play in our big side yard with her. We race and have fun just playing together. She comes to my house everyday to play with my toys

Best Tricks:
Sit on the stair with my two front paws on the step below when Mom takes me out. Then I wait for her to get into her electric red Caddie (wheelchair) to take me out. Jumping up to get my toys Mom and John are holding when we play fetch and catch inside.

Arrival Story:
Roamie found us. He was matted, VERY dirty,very, very tired and in need of care. We are blessed to have Roamie come into our lives. On July 16, 2004, a dirty, stinking brown dog came up to my son as he sat in the backyard in the swing. After petting the animal for awhile, John came into the house telling me that there was someone outside who wanted to meet me. Here it was 9:30 at night! I told him if the person wanted to meet me they must come inside. (I am disable and do not move around easily) Within minutes, John came walking into my office grinning from ear to ear and behind him was the DIRITIEST MATTED, STINKIEST dog I have ever seen. I saw an angel when I looked into the dog’s eyes and fell in love immediately but hastily told John to get him out of the house. The next morning, I found John in the garage giving Roamie his second bath after going to the store to buy shampoo, dog food and all the supplies a pet requires. My two new beach towels will never to be anything but brown again! After the sixth bath, Roamie was found to be white and tan and we then knew he was a wiredhair terrier. Roamie slept all the time and literally had to be lifted up from the living room floor to be taken outside to piddle and doodle for four days. John had taken Roamie with him two days after he came to us, through the neighborhood and surrounding areas inquiring if anyone knew this dog. Some guy’s, four houses down the road, said he had been in their backyard for a couple of days but he was not their dog. The next week, we took him to meet Dr. Kevin, the vet. Neither he nor anyone in his office knew Roamie. After a thorough checkup and shots, Dr. Kevin told us just to let him rest and he would be fine. No telling how long the dog had wandered as he was so exhausted. After the fifth day, Roamie began to have some energy. He quickly endeared himself to all he met. As I am handicapped after ten knee replacement surgeries and three major staph infections, I began to move around more using my walker instead of a wheelchair indoors but my electric chair when I took Roamie outside on a leash. He stole my heart and gave me a reason to look forward to the next day. Roamie was indeed an angel who lived with us for six brief weeks. I never will forget him for he was one of the loves of my life. John and I were blessed to have cared for him. Roamie asked to include his best friend, Sally on his page.

Early September 2004: This past Sunday was a nightmare for me. The police showed up at our door with some people who said Roamie was their dog. They said he disappeared a month ago. The police report that was filed said he left home on May 10th. I don't understand this situation but we were going to be cited with theft if we did not give Roamie over to them. Please say a prayer for Max/Roamie as I know he misses us. Say one for us......... we need it. I feel like I have lost a loved one. We will get another animal but Roamie can't be replaced. He was so loved in our home and was the king of the roost. Pray that he won't be in a crate or tied to a clothes line while they are gone as they said that is why he got away.Roamie brought so much joy into my life. I was blessed. I'll never forget him. He slept with JM and on my stomach when I was in the recliner. I can tell you his bathroom habits, his favorite toys and his cute antics. He was so mellow and so obedient when I said stop and sit when taking him out and putting on his collar. He knew my limitations. He loved going to the office with John Meredith and coming home to play with me. He loved sleeping in the recliner as I worked on the computer. He liked to be on the screened in porch in the mornings. He loved riding in the car with me or John. He liked his angel, dog and chewy bones. I fed him (held in my hand) for him this afternoon one of his weekly Greenies to chew. He ate Pet Science Dog food small bites. He loved Sally Belle next door and watching NASCAR races. He ate at ten at night and sometimes liked to sleep on the top of the couch or in Granny's blue chair. Most of all he like John's stomach or my lap. He can not be replaced. Knowing that... I know that we did the only right thing to do. Thank you Roamie for teaching me how to love a dog and showing me that dogs indeed know how to give unconditional love to humans. He was indeed an angel of mercy to me

Asta and Roamie, Can you hear me?
My heart is really low
I can't seem to forgive myself
that I had to let you go.

My mind was set on loving you till the very end.
You deserved this from your Mom
for each of you were my Friend.

When both of you had to leave
I could not stop them from taking you and I cried
For I handicapped and could not walk
Never did I think I'd hear so quickly you had died.

I hope you did not suffer
and went peacefully to sleep,
Mom is sorry I let you down
I now think of this and weep.

I know that you each are happy now
you are together and never have to feel pain,
I hope that you can forgive me
until we meet again!


I Need Your Help, Sweetie

I love you and still miss you. Bradley is taking good care of me, honey. He is so much larger than you but very sweet.

I know that you are having a wonderful time in heaven. Take care of my family there.

I love you,
