Our beautiful, sweet "Rasta-girl" filled our life with so much love and joy. I fell in love with Rasta the moment we met, when she sat in my lap, looked up at me and gentle kissed my face. She was the definition of unconditional love. From her sweet kisses, soft nuzzles, loving looks or simply being near, you could feel her love. Her sweet and gentle nature brought smiles and warmth to so many people. And so many people loved her, a testament to how truly special she was. Dog-lovers or not, Rasta managed to find a special place in the hearts of so many people.
More than anything, Rasta loved being with her family--especially me, her Mom. Rasta gave me the most amazing 12 years--through so many life changes including marriage and kids. She was an unyielding and faithful companion, lovingly by my side no matter what. Taking walks together, especially in the woods, was one of Rasta's favorite things to do. She also loved eating her greenies and liver treats. From camping, fishing (she loved coming on the boat and licking the fish we caught), hiking and family gatherings, Rasta was at my side and a loyal member to the whole family. She was a beautiful girl, winning three top awards with her groomer. Rasta was beautiful in every way.
Rasta led a happy, healthy and full life, but caught us off guard when she died suddenly from a heart condition. We are thankful we had time to say good-bye. She was able to die at home on her bed surrounded by her family. Leaving just as sweetly as she arrived, she gently kissed my face and passed away. We miss our Rasta-girl deeply. I am beyond grateful for the bond Rasta and I shared. I am grateful for the love she gave me, our family and others. Rasta will always be a part of our family and me. She will live on in the hearts and memories of so many.
Good-bye my sweet Rasta-girl--Mama will love you forever! ... Read More
