a sad goodbye...

We were so sad to say goodbye to our beloved chocolate lab, Rocky, today.  He was 8 years old and one of our first "children" so saying goodbye was difficult for everyone, especially the kiddos.  We noticed he wasn't acting like himself earlier in the week and took him to his vet on December 24th and they let us know he was having liver problems.  They gave us some medication to keep him comfortable and to fight off a possible infection, but as the days went on he was getting worse.  

We were so blessed to have him as part of our family and so glad we were all able to say our goodbyes.  When Maddux was saying goodbye he said "I bet they have some awesome toys up there Rocky!"  

We will always remember our loud and gentle giant.  Love you forever big guy.
