In Memory

I know you miss your little kipper, she was so full of joy she spread
it like California summer sun.

Her running and hiding act put
a smile on the grumpiest face.
A little white blur ball jumping three times her height just in her stride, up on the couch then freeze for a second high on the back.

Big black eyes alert with mischief draped with those curly white ears. Running the backyard cat kingdom with pert attention and deep wet ear licks. Always with
a sense of purpose and great energy.

When she lost her mobility her magic disappeared and it was
then watching her try her old
ways that made me sad and made her yelp with pain. Now I hope she’s running and jumping the
way she created her magic.
It is a beautiful thing.

Good bye Rosie my little friend.

Inscrutable Dog

Beloved mascot, friend, family member and companion succumbs to brain tumor.

Friends remember Rosie O'Doggie greeting customers at Santa Rosa Printing Co for many years. Good natured, friendly Bichon Frise, beloved by all. She lived almost 17 years and despite a growing brain tumor, didn't complain until her last night.

Mother of two kitties.


Our two kitties, Tiger Kitty and Grey Kitty (AKA Luther Purrbank) adoopted Rosie as their mother. They were abandoned in a motor boat sales yard when they were a few weeks old and were adopted by a teenager who raised them until they were ready to join Rosie at home.
