Oh no Marty. I am so very sorry.. I am at a complete loss of words.

Rookie...listen...you graced your family and they love you to bits. I guess you were called to help someone or something at the bridge and over. I am sure that you will do great at that as well. Remember that you are cherished by your family and us here as well. God's speed little one. We will remember you.

Marty - I wish you Peace and Strength. All I can really do is give you a .
So sorry...

Please accept my deepest condolences marty11, I'm so so sorry for your loss
There's never a good reason to explain why these things happen and it's so painful. Remembering and reflecting on the better moments seems to help but the first weeks are devastating.

I wish you courage and strength over the coming weeks.

What a beautiful picture you posted.

sweet sweet Rookie.

Sincerely,

Marko

I'm so sorry to hear about Rookie, Marty. He knew he was well-loved and he couldn't have been in better hands. I hope happy memories soon ease the pain in your heart.

Aww Marty, I am so so sorry. Rookie had a wonderful life with you. I am sorry it was so short. I guess someone needed him more than you did.
dear Rookie You will be very missed.
Marty. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Marty, I'm so sorry for the loss of Rookie. What a beautiful boy
That must have been a terrible shock for you

I read the post last week where he just froze up on you. Did the vet ever find anything wrong?


beautiful Rookie

Such sad news, Marty11. Poor boy. It's terrible losing them suddenly at any age, always an awful shock, but at 8 .... He did go the way I've wanted all mine to go , and none have, quietly in his sleep, maybe that much was a blessing. R.I.P. Rookie.

Thank you for all your lovely messages! I haven't spoke to the vet yet, I'm sure she will call this week. I am suspicious of Rookie maybe having a stroke, getting better and then having another one? It's all I can go on right now. I do have peace that it was sudden in his sleep, it's very hard to watch a pet suffer. My Boston seems ok so far, she's always had Rookie in her life. I will be hanging out with the dog next door more often for playtime.
