Rusty was a great friend and companion He hated rain but had a love for snow no matter how cold he would slide in it and look back at you. His other great love was grass even though he had allergies to it he would go out and find a spot to sit and roll always looking for his master for approval with great big brown cow eyes. His devotion to be a protector was also amazing he had that deep bark that would scare the living daylights out of you but he was always gentle. He knew he was an alpha dog and showed it to his other friends protecting his food so no one could eat it.We loved him deeply and he will be always in our hearts and he will be missed deeply. We know that you didn’t want to leave us but we didn’t want you to suffer from the cancer. Run free with Nesta and we will see you again. Your Mom and Grandma and Grandpa.
