My Two Precious Girls

I got Roxie 5 years ago when she was a puppy. Roxie is a Jack Russel, white and brown and perfect. Ali came 2 years later. She was a white boxer, and the sweetest and most kind hearted dog I've ever known. They became the lights of my life. Always there through everything. When people say we love dogs because they are unconditional weren't lying.

My girls gave me unconditional love, always forgave and never held grudges...They were perfect. Roxie was the little loner, i always said she was like a cat. She chose when she wanted to come to you and when she didn't. Bur when she wanted love she would be in your lap in a heart beat. Ali on the other hand was complete opposite. Her whole purpose in life was to love. And boy did she. She was the most loving dog, and she adored me. Followed me around, i would catch her just staring at me sometimes with adoration.

Anytime i would call her she would come right over and sit there as long as you allowed. She loved belly rubs and snuggle time.. She also loved being outside despite her allergy problems. Roxie loved, well her biggest love was her she would play fetch for hours if you allowed it....They were beautiful dogs inside and out and I loved them with all my heart.

So heres the sad part. I'm trying to write this but it is extremely hard. Two weeks ago I lost Ali to an extreme allergic reaction to a wasp sting. A week later Roxie got off her leash and bolted and we still haven't found her. My heart is completely shattered. I feel like no one understands the hurt I'm feeling. They were my family. I went from having two perfect dogs to having none. I will always miss them and they can never be replaced.

when i saw your post the first thing i saw was jack russell terrier. I just lost a Jack Russell Terrier and I wanted to let you know you're not alone. dogs are part of the family and just as important as a human to most pet owners especially when they are as important as your dogs were to you. I am so sorry for your loss and i don't know how long ago you lost roxie but if it wasn't too long ago don't give up hope on finding her. jack russells are very smart but also very hyper. If you believe in god then just know that your amazing dogs are in heaven right now and they are watching over you.

Dear friend,

I know all to well what you are feeling. I just lost my Rosie girl August 2. I hear you; when you tell people, they look at you like your crazy and say things like "get another dog". To other people our baby girl was just a dog. To us she was part of us and she loved us unconditionally.

It's been 6 weeks now and I still grieve for her. I know it will get easier as time goes by. But for now I grieve. Just want you to know you are not alone.
