Rosie's Rose Garden – Life!

Rosie lives to smell the Roses and Survive Cancer.

I am Rosie’s mom.  Rosie has been gone now over 2  1/2 years.  And we still miss her very much.  I came online today to visit her old tripawds blog.  Haven’t been here for a long while.  It was nice to visit and see her old photos and comments I had made over 2 years ago.  I never unsubscribed to Tripawds I guess having her here keeps her alive in my memories. So I have kept her blog online.  It was a bittersweet time.  We went thru so very much to keep her alive and she only survived a year.

I guess what I’m saying sounds negative, but we realized after all that we went thru that we were still going to lose her.  That was the hard part to deal with.  We really just prolonged the end and it didn’t really make it easier to take, in fact I think it made it harder.  We tried so hard to save her.  We spent lots of money and time trying to fix cancer.  But it was unsuccessful.  Maybe her kind of cancer was just not fixable.  Maybe others out there have another kind of cancer that you can beat.  I wouldn’t discourage you from trying,  but just be prepared that it may not work.  I tired every herb, conventional and holistic approach and it did not keep the cancer away.  She had Osteo Sarcoma the kind they get in their shoulder or leg.  It is just so sad that these beautiful animals get sick.  We lost her.  We miss her.  And we wish she hadn’t gotten this terrible disease.  We tried our best, we spared no cost.  But she is still gone.  Only our memories keep her in our heart now.

So for all the effort we gave,  and all the love that we received from Rosie, our Golden Retriever.  We are thankful that we had such a wonderful and faithful friend in her.  We finally got another Golden Girl.  Her name is Bella, she is now 2 years old.  She is very different from Rosie but very loving as well.  Thank you for listening whoever you are.  And if you are new to Tripawds, I’m sorry if you are here trying to find the answers to what to do for your pet.  You do find comfort here.  Rosie did do well for awhile.  But it is very difficult.  Hang in there and don’t give up.  Maybe your result will be better than mine was.  Thank You.  Rosie’s Mom.

Sandy, thank you for returning to give us your insight and thoughts. I can’t believe it’s been over two years, it’s just amazing how quickly time goes by. I remember your journey with Rosie well and it just breaks my heart that she didn’t get more time.

No dog should ever have to go through this horrible disease, but if they do we know that when their pawrents find your blog, they will feel empowered with the education, experience and realistic point of view that you have so bravely shared with everyone. They may not comment, but I know there are hundreds of people who comb over every word in the Tripawds blogs looking for answers and hope. In Rosie’s story, they will benefit so much. So thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being here from the earliest days to now, for sharing your story and your perspective as you look back years later, for continuing to be a Tripawds supporter. Rosie’s story will always be a part of this community no matter what, we sincerely thank you for all of your kindness and generosity.

Please give Bella a big hug from the Tripawds community. I’m so happy you found a new pup to love. What a lucky dawg.

With much love,
Spirit Jerry, Rene, Jim, Wyatt Ray and the Tripawds Nation
