I'll Miss You, Old Friend

This has absolutely nothing to do with thrifting, but I just don't think I can write about much today. My dog Rosco, who my family got when I was in 8th grade, had to be put down yesterday. He's been sick, and it was time. While I understand this, it's still really hard for me, because he was down in Florida with my family and I am up here in Richmond. I didn't get to say goodbye. :(

Here's a picture I took of him the last time I saw him, in September:

He was just a great dog, and I loved him so much. Although I wish I could've said goodbye in person, the next best thing was to say goodbye here. So, bye Rosco. I'll miss you dragging me around the block on our walks, watching you run around the backyard in the sun, and playing tug-of-war with your toys. I'll miss you, old friend.



  1. I am so sorry for the loss of you sweet pet Rosco. It is so hard to say goodbye. I am glad you shared with us and know that we care about you.

  2. I never know what to say in response to these things, so I'll just leave it at I'm sorry...and I really am.

  3. Thank you both so much. It really means a lot to me- I consider you real friends.

  4. I'm so sorry! It's terrible to loose a pet. I'll keep you in my prayers.

  5. Your dog was such a beautiful creature, I'm so sorry for your loss. Sounds like you have some great memories, so hopefully that will give you some peace even though you didn't get to say goodbye. My thoughts are with you Amanda..


I love your comments! You all are the best!
