Losing Rosie so suddenly just shocked us to the core.
I appreciate everyone's kind comments.
I can think about her and talk about her without crying now, but we all miss her terribly.
To use a popular psychology term, the "dynamic" of the house has totally changed.
The other dogs act differently now, and of course, we just flat-out miss having Rosie around.
She was one of those dogs that just made us laugh without playing or her trying to be funny. Just the way she did things was funny.
For example, whenever one of the family came into the house, while the other dogs got excited and barked, Rosie would express her excitement to see you by turning in about 10 circles. The circles were ALWAYS left-handed, or counter-clockwise.
It was funny to see; it was as if instead of going on a run like some dogs do, she would spin in place, to the left.
She was the mother to two of the poodles we have, and when they got upset or felt insecure, they'd come to her and slowly roll over in front of Rosie in submission, and have their face right in front of her's. Then she would lay there and lick their closed eyes, and it would soothe and calm them down.
They've seemed out of sorts without her there to give her what we came to call "eyeball sugar."
Just a couple of the many things we miss about Rosie.
Anyway, thanks againg for the kind comments.
