Roxie by Randy, Denise, Ben Pope / mama

It was just 1 day after christmas we were at the flea market and we came upon a table that had a litter of Colby Pitbulls all was males except for one the runt. We held her for a few minutes and then sit her back down we started walking away when Randy asked me if I wanted her. I said yes, yes, yes so we turned around and went back and got her. Well she took sick on us really bad when she was 6 weeks old so we had to stay with her 24 hours a day till she got better.

I fell in love with her the first time I ever saw her and she love me. I was her mama so me and her didn’t go anywhere without one another. She was my dog. She protected me and never left me. She didn’t like you to go any where. We moved to Florida and of course she came with us. Then I wanted to get her a playmate, so we got Spikey. Roxie didn’t like him at first but she grew to love him. She ended up having
babies 12 of them.

Then on the 2nd day of labor we had to take her to the vet; she had got really sick and couldn’t walk, eat or anything. The vet told us the bad news that her 12th baby was in her dead and she couldn’t pass it out so she would die within a few hours so we went home and I cried and cried. I was losing my baby girl and I am not ready to so I had to pull her babies from her and sit with her.

At 4:45 am the following morning she started to cry out. I knew it was time for her to go then so I got up and went over to her and I told her it was ok. Mama was there with her and she wasn’t by herself Just a few seconds later she took her last breath. It really broke my heart. I wasn’t ready to let her go and I never will be. I had 6 babies but lost the last two 11 weeks later; lost the rest 5 weeks earlier then the last ones. I just don’t know what to do now that my baby is in heaven without me. This is my story of my best baby ever.


With lots, lots love,
