Rest in Peace my dear Rodger

rodger_1

On Wednesday morning we took our dog Rodger to be put to sleep. Rodger had been with us for over 6 years, but was over 16 years old. He came to live with us after his owner was remarried and his new wife didn't care for him. He ended up in the pound headed for the euthanasia list, but English Springer Spaniel Rescue saved him. We foster him for a short time and then Jonny gave him to me for Valentine's Day 6 years ago with a big red bow attached to him. He was a great old dog and had a nice long life. We will miss you Rodgie!

Oh, Rodgie. I am so sorry to learn this sad news, Kim, but I know he had a nice long, happy life he may not otherwise have had if you hadn't stepped in. I'll miss his terrible doggie breath, his waddling to and fro, and of course... his regal gray face. Rest in peace Rodgie... you won't be forgotten!

I'm so sorry you had to do that but it sounds like he had a long and wonderful life thanks to you and your family.

I am so sorry about Rodger. I know how difficult it is to put down a pet. Thinking of you all.

Kim,

sorry to hear about your doggie. I know how sad it is to put down a pet. We lost both of our dogs within 6 weeks of one another. He is in a better place now.

I am sorry to hear the sad news. My mom just went through this with one of her dogs a few weeks ago. Who knows about his first years, but his last ones had to have been great! May he rest in peace and may his memory live on!
