bye bye roger

he was simply the best dog.
our first child in so many ways.
smart, charming, dramatic
my companion and guard dog when Jason was on the road,
a sweet and kind friend to the girls.

he'll really be missed.
there is only one of him in the world.

  10. I am sooo sorry to hear about losing Roger. My Willie and Vic will always be my first babies. We just hung their ornaments on the tree the other day and they brought back so many memories.

    Believe it or not but when I finally gave in to letting our kids have a dog this is what I was thinking of. I am not looking forward to the day when we lose ur dog.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  18. I'm sorry to hear about your dog…I still remember crying when I found out my pet goat died, and I was in college. Bet you never heard that one before!?! She was kind of like a pet dog in a way, so docile.

    Cried over losing dogs too, I’m a dog lover! I saw these cute little puppies for free the other day on Craigslist. Oh I wanted one! But at the same time I know they are a lot of work. And I don’t think our old cat would like a puppy honing in on his territory. ;)

  19. oh, I'm so sorry!
    Dogs really are mans (and womans) best friends. They've got such a personality, they really do become part of the family.
    *hugs* I'm sure he's in Heaven, chasing many squirrels :)

  22. Julie...
    My heart is broken for you and your sweet ones.
    Oh I do know how you feel.
    The pain is in a league of it's own when it comes to our furry children.
    Believing that our fur children do go to heaven gives me much comfort...hope it does for you too.
    Roger is beautiful...I can only imagine how much his presence will be sadly missed.
    I usually don't ask someone to pop over to my blog...but I would like to share a recent post with you...
    Dog Heaven...
