My Dog

Rosa was beyond special and made everyone smile. She loved all people, dogs, cats and many other creatures she encountered. She exuded kindness and loyalty. You could be walking her on the street in the pouring rain and she would make people stop and smile. Rosa was always happy and always by my side.
