The passing of Rocco

The passing of Rocco

PostBy: samhill On: Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:31 pm

A few days ago the group I belong to Therapy Dogs United & several other groups put out a call for blood, a Vet was coming around with some members so I said OK. My wife had told some neighbors so when they came here there were 18 dogs & owners to donate both blood & money. The Vet was crying almost the whole time her & the techs were working but sadly today Rocco lost the battle. Just venting a bit I know it happens but it still gets me.

Sam, I'm so very sorry to hear of the passing of Rocco. It's is really nice to be on the same side of an issue with you for once. I really love dogs. If I could make a living working with dogs, I would in a minute. Unfortunately I cannot. Thank you for participating in such a worthwhile effort.

We have a purebred Mastiff that we used to show. His father can be seen on YouTube winning at the Westminster Kennel Club. He's getting older now and some of his litter mates have started passing away. I dread the day, he's like a son to me.

I applaud all who help animals, especially dogs. Good for you Sam, a dogs best friend!

Hurts Like Hell,Sam. It doesn't help to know that he shouldn't have left the Crime Scene Alive. I don't know how he survived to get to the Veterinary Hospital. Once he came through the doors,that was where Folks like you kicked in...From All Over...And that's how he made it that far....Officer Rocco was a True Power Pup. I've got no Humor like I usually try to do. I'm a little flat 'cause I know that Power Pup took it to The Wall for his Fellow Officers. Again,This hurts Like Hell,and it ought to. It's hard to Love our Animals,It would be even harder not to. Stand Down,Rest Easy,Power Pup!
