Roo (Dancyn) 07/02/2002 - 12/11/2015


Recommended Posts

Wow...3 months after we put Tigger to sleep, we had to put her littermate Roo to sleep. She declined very fast with Renal failure. It was time--she hid how sick she really was. She was our goofy girl, another hater of cats and come to find out fear aggressive to all dogs so she always had on a red bandana. She was aloof but later in life she came up to you to scratch her butt. She loved to rough house with daddy and even learned to snuggle with me. I taught her to speak and that was a mistake! First time in 10 years with no dogs. Thank you Greyhound Angel Adoption for allowing us to adopt a littermate.

Robin, I am so sorry to see that Roo has gone on to join her sister. Seems like just yesterday we were meeting your pretty girls in Gettysburg. :(


Sending a hug to you and Mike.

I'm so very sorry about your losses of both sisters, Roo and Tigger.


Sadly, I understand this most difficult time losing similar aged loved ones. Even more difficult when your last littermate passes, leaving an empty house and shattered heart. My sincere condolences during this terribly sad time.


The photo of Roo and Tigger is lovely. (Steve U. took our favorite keepsake memory photos too.)


Godspeed Roo while joining sister Tigger over the bridge.


Hugs to you.

So sorry for both of your losses. :grouphug

I am very sorry. Losing two close together is very hard.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
