Happy Birthday Roscoe!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Properties, Weston FL

So you're probably wondering who in the world is Roscoe. Well...over a year ago I was a bit down wondering how long my dog would live so my feelings took over and I wrote this post called Mans best friend,how much do you grieve after ones death .

When I wrote it the first draft was pretty bad as far as my spelling and the wording so I didn't want to alter it too much just so you can see it was written from the heart. If you want to read a good story that has brought tears to many eyes...then you should take the time to read it.

To this day .....I'm still receiving comments....I think there is around 185 the last time I checked so I had to disable the comments for a while as it was becoming harder and harder to reply.

Most dogs don't live as long as he but as of today he is still alive and thankfully made it to the big 17! He can still get around most of the day and then at night he seems to sleep more.

Lately I've been getting the feeling he might not have much left but we still try to enjoy him and make him feel happy and comfortable.

I just wanted to take the time to shoot this short video in celebration of my friend and trusted pet Roscoe.

Happy Birthday Roscoe......your a good ole boy!

Please see this short video.

Awwww.....  This is awesome!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROSCOE!

My dog died in my arms 2 and 1/2 years ago.  I do not think I will ever get over it.

Neal-  Our first dog lived to be 17.  His birthday was August 23. 

Our First DogHe was our first son.  To understand the position he held in our family, our favorite line was:

"He not only didn't know he was a dog, he didn't know he was adopted."

We got another schnauzer, the year after he died.  He lived to be 16.

In both cases, we were lucky to have pets who lived to ripe old ages, but my husband said, he couldn't go through losing another dog.

Happy Birthday, Roscoe!

Neal...

It's amazing how big a part of our lives our pets are. I think it's because they depend on us and give unconditional love! Thanks for the touching post, it's nicer than the one yesterday!

Richard,

I know about the loss of Karen and didn't want to take away from that ....but also the feeling of joy during these times helps heal the other feelings.

Neal I am not a pet person, but I do understand how close pet owners are to their pets, and after 17 years Roscoe has to be just like one of the family.  He looks like a tough little guy, and I hope you and enjoy and cherish every minute that you have left with him.

Hi Neal, Your Roscoe is  a sweetie. My first dog Dessie lived till 15 1/2 which is pretty good for a Shepherd Husky Lab. it was so traumatic losing her. Bella is 7 next week. We adopted here at 4 1/2 so i feel shortchanged already. Shoot now I'll be a bad Momma if I don't do a b'day blog...

Happy Birthday Roscoe!
