Remembering Roo

A year ago I had to say goodbye to my best friend & beloved brindle pit bull mix, Roo. Eight years earlier, he rescued me from the depths of despair--truly giving a post 9-11 world meaning again. He charmed everyone lucky enough to be greeted by his full body wags, loving brown eyes, & sweet kisses. He will always be cherished.
