Back in February of 1994, Toni and I bought two beautiful English Springer Spaniels from the Montgomery’s in Poplar Bluff. We named them Rosemary and Sage. Sage past away in the heat of the summer of 1996 but Rosemary lived on and on.
My parents have kept her while we’ve been on the road, and Rose was glad to see the family when we returned from nine months of road life. However, her hips had gotten worse as well as her hearing, eyesight and smell. After talking it over with the vet, it was determined that Rose was in too much pain to enjoy life. With great sorrow, on Wednesday at the age of 13 years (or 91 in dog years) Rose past away.
