I first met Roxy on April 8, 2010. I had lost my sweet Cruella just a month earlier and did not feel ready to add a new member to my family just yet, but I knew that my other dog, Molly, was in need of a companion. I thought about it overnight, and I picked Roxy up the following day. I quickly grew to love her to the point that there’s nothing I wouldn’t have done to keep her happy and healthy.
Roxy was a beautiful Dalmatian/Hound mix with a heart of pure gold. Not a day went by that she wouldn’t walk up to me, lift her right paw, and lightly place it on my knee in an amazing show of affection. She could always bring a smile to my face!
I am saddened to say that Roxy went to the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2013. Every fiber of my being aches, and there is a huge hole in my heart. But despite the pain and tragedy of losing my beloved friend and family member, I remain thankful for the three beautiful years we shared.
Anotole France is quoted as saying, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” I am blessed to have a soul that has been fully awakened, thanks to the unconditional love of Roxy, Cruella, and my three other wonderful dogs.
Rest in peace, sweet Roxy. We will meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
