Rocko was a 60 lb Golden Chow. He was easily the best friend I have ever had. He lived happily for 14 years, in two different states, PA and CO. I got him when I was just 13 years old, and ever since then he was as loyal and awesome as anyone could hope or wish for. I loved him very much, and he loved me equally. He loved to take long walks, go for car rides, eat treats, and sit close by me, keeping me company and safe. I did everything I could to give him the best life possible. In his final weeks, he got to come to work with me every day, and spend almost the entire last month of his life not far from my side. I know that was special to him, I’ve never seen anyone or anything so excited in the morning to get in the car and go to work!
Home to Heaven provided such a great service, and a peaceful passing for Rocko. He was not stressed on his last day, in fact, he had one of the best days of his life. I had friends over the whole day, we took a very long walk, and he got to eat an entire ribeye steak. I couldnt have asked for a better ending for his story, and am only sad that it could not have been much much longer. But his memory will never be lost.
I love you Rocko, and will never forget the joy and love you brought into my life. I can’t wait to see your smiling face and wagging tail on the other side of those pearly gates.
Miss you buddy!
