This is so hard to write.
Over the years my long term readers have come to know my beautiful boy Roscoe.
Since then he has been my constant companion, always by my side, we have trained together and even drove around Sydney doing Agility training which he still loved to do at our local Off Leash Area
Roscoe was very accustomed to seeing me taking photos for my blog in the backyard for many years and then for some reason at 6 years of age he decided it was time for him to be included where he managed to be in a lot of my photos from then on.
Our mornings started with the alarm going off and then being bombarded by Roscoe until we got out of bed to go for our morning walk. This was the first part of a morning ritual, breakfast and coffee (frothed milk) with a possible yogurt container to lick and play with were just the mornings. Around 5pm or when we got home another walk and play time was had before dinner and then cuddles until we all went to bed.
He loved catching ball, playing soccer, chasing and catching the Frisbee and of course, a stick was always a great play toy.
One of the treats Roscoe really enjoyed was a trip to the beach playing in the surf and rolling in the sand.
|It took days to get all that sand out!|
Last Christmas we realised Roscoe had lost a lot of strength in his back legs when he wasn’t interested in playing in the surf or even capable of having a good roll in the sand. He had also developed some breathing difficulties.
He will be missed!
