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 ball...lol 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.
