Goodbye Roxie

Today would have been Roxie’s 7th birthday. Happy Birthday Roxie.

Roxie

Roxie was our Saint Bernard Labrador Mix aka Labranard and she was born with severe hip dysplasia. When she was 6 months old, the vet told us to put her down because she would never walk. Well, she walked and ran and did everything she wanted for almost 7 years.

Earlier this month we had to euthanize her as she was to the point where you could see that every movement was causing her pain.

We miss you Roxie but we know you are no longer in pain.

    I think my wife and I met Roxie and you guys on the street one day. Sorry to hear about your loss. I need to hurry up and start cybernetically enhancing our dogs so they’ll live forever.

    So sorry for your loss. I was just pulling up your blog to show my husband pictures of Roxie. I came across your blog years ago when I was trying to research our dog, Dutch’s breed. I saw Roxie and couldn’t believe how much she looked like Dutch! Sadly, I was showing my husband your blog because we just had to put Dutch down this past Friday. He had bone cancer and the pain was becoming too much. We had 12 1/2 wonderful years with him but will miss him terribly.

    I wish you and your family well as you deal with your loss. This mix of breeds is really something special.
