    I am so Heartbroken...I lost my dear Russie Roo Roo this afternoon...it happened so fast..him and his ladies were outside enjoying the grass..he was sitting on my lap eating hotdogs..then all of the sudden he took off after something..by the time I was able to catch up to him..he was just laying there..he made one last croak...then died..it looked as though he might have slipped on the ice and broke his neck...I am so devastated...he was the little guy I rescued from the trash last year..he just turned a year last month..I he such a gentle giant and I am going to miss him!

    I'm so very sorry. He was very handsome. I sure know how you feel-I lost my Zane a couple of weeks ago after caring for him for over 4 years. Seems like they should have had more years with us.

    Gosh, he was GORGEOUS! Of course, even if he was a less than spectacular specimen, I know you'd miss him just as much. [​IMG]
