Oh Alice I am so sad to hear this news. You have loved Rosie and her pal Murphy and done all you could and more. My heart aches for your loss. Prayers for little Rosie's journey, and for your strength. Thank you for your love and compassion for these beings who otherwise would suffer so much more.

It has been a long and sad 2 years, Rosie and Murphy each just made it to 2 1/2
yrs old.
Bless all of you fighting this battle-it is a long, and difficult journey, but
these babies deserve
all the love in the world. Alice with Miso and Sachi-the 2 negatives we adopted
