Rosie was just as sweet as she looked. We had a lot of fun over the almost 14 years we had together. Rosie and I traveled to dog shows and hunt tests together. She was easy to travel with and she was not a backseat driver. Rosie enjoyed retrieving whatever we would throw for her. She loved to swim in the lakes and ponds near our home. She also loved to swim and retrieve in her pool.
Rosie was trained for hunting tests by Tim Landecker of TKO Retrievers. I handled Rosie for each test, or maybe she handled me... Either way, Rosie loved to visit Tim.
At Christmas 2013, Rosie was diagnosed with end stage renal failure as a result of Anaplasmosis and Lyme Disease. She lived another 8 months longer before leaving us. Her life during those 8 months was really good. She was able to run and keep up with life here on the farm. Most important, she was so very happy.
We miss her presence. We miss her joy. She LOVED life.
A song that reminds me of Rosie is
"Girls Just Want to Have Fun". That was Rosie.
