karissashley Seems the perfect day to post a picture of Rosie! I had the privilege of taking some photos of her and her loving humans about a week before she passed on last March. She was a senior dog, adopted by my friends to live out her days in peace and love. Adopt dogs that need good homes !!! @kristenjonelle said it best in her tribute which I'll post below ! --- (1 of 2)
Four years ago, I came across this post on my Facebook feed. I had been vaguely, casually thinking about adopting a dog. Of the hundreds of pictures I'd seen posted by local rescues and humane societies, somehow this one was it. I couldn't stop thinking about Rosie. I contacted Lynchburg Humane Society and found out that she was 14, and her owners had surrendered her when they decided to get a divorce and neither one of them wanted her anymore. Lindsey and I went to visit Rosie in her foster home, which was pretty chaotic, lots of dogs barking and jumping. But Rosie stood quietly and calmly at the door when we arrived. She had a rotten, sideways tooth, and bald spots on her butt and tail, and horrendous breath, but she was so sweet, and she laid down next to where I was sitting on the floor, and she was mine and I was hers. Last night, I dreamed that we were riding around in my car together, which was one of her favorite things to do. And I woke up missing her a lot, and then realized that today is the anniversary of a very important day in the brief time we had together. <3

  •   kristenjonelle Oh, thank you so much Karissa! I look at the pictures you took of her everyday- one is the background on my phone, another is my computer desktop image, another hangs on our fridge, etc. I can never fully express my gratitude for the gift of these memories of her. 1w
