Roxy the Traveling Dog’s Final Journey — 25 Comments

  1. Oh Mary. I am crying as I write this. What a beautiful, heartfelt tribute to a mighty dog of great heart.

    Thank you for sharing Roxy’s indomitable spirit and loving ways with us.

    Much love and healing light.

  2. My eyes are glassy, so forgive any mistakes I leave behind in my comment.

    Mary, Al and Torrey, I have enjoyed watching Roxy as I have been following you for years; I will continue to see where this amazing life’s journey will take you as you will be shaped by this loss.How amazing is that heart Mary, that Roxy led you to. I believe.I truly believe that LOVE is a force that touches us through each other, human or nature. I’m heartbroken for you but now, she is a part of that place you love so much.

  3. Mary – my thoughts are with you, Al, and Torrey. I’m one of those who never met Roxy in person but who thought the world of her. I like to imagine she’s running pain free on a beach waiting to rejoin you. Take care of yourself.

  4. Your photos made me laugh, and they made me cry! Before I knew you, I knew Roxy. Because our other Mary used to share your blog posts about Roxy. She truly was famous. I’m glad we got to see her in April. I love the way she would come looking for us when she came out of your rig. Larry and I have never been small dog people, but we definitely loved Roxy.
    She did have a good summer, so keep remembering that as you grieve her. Love to all of you!

  5. Oh, and that little puppy face, when she was little! I saw the heart rock right away. Amazing that you found three!

  6. Oh dear sweet Roxy look at all the LOVE that you created and left wherever you traveled. We had the pleasure of a few in person visits but mostly watched you grow and transform from afar. Our hearts go out to your family as they will miss your physical presence and warmth the most. Holding each of you up in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.

  7. Oh, Mary. How deeply I feel for you, Al, and Torrey. I never met any of you, but through your blog, I feel I know you all. I fell in love with little Roxy, and with Torrey. Roxy is free of pain now; and though she’s not with you physically, her sweet spirit will always be with you.

  8. Dogs’ lives are too short. Their only fault, really.

    My heart goes out to you guys! oxox

  9. She was such a sweet little soul! (and spunky even in her old age – she gave Al a run for his money there!). My heart is with all of you, I know just how much she will be missed.

  10. I’m so glad I got to meet her at BlogPaws. She was such a tiny, sweet pup. You have her a fantastic life that most dogs would not even dream of living. Even her final resting place is so very special. It is heartbreaking to lose such a precious family member. I’m thinking of you.

  11. It was hard to click the ‘like’ button because this is so sad. But I had to click it because the images of her made me smile. Especially the one of her by the river being so ZEN… I’m so so sorry she had to go on to her next adventure. What a fabulous girl, and what a lucky girl at that to travel with you. She will be watching you as you keep exploring, always with you no matter where you go. Huge hugs, I know she was just a little girl but she will leave you with big holes in your hearts.

  12. I am so very sorry… it’s so sad to say goodbye to our family. Your beautiful pictures and how the horses came in… surely tell you that she will be looked over forever! I have tears writing this… sending lots of hugs to you both.

  13. She will always be carried on your heart path, where ever you may go. She completed your traveling family bonded forever. To me she will always be “Sassie little Roxey” with a wanderlous soul and paws.

  14. Mary this was a beautiful and most touching post. I always enjoyed seeing Roxy on your blog, she touched so many of us. My heart is breaking along with yours. The heart you found was just perfect. Sending my deepest sympathy to all of you.

  15. What a sweet sweet girl. Rest in peace, sweet Roxy, you made your family and many other people so very happy. Sending hugs.

  16. Roxy was a beautiful, sweet girl who will furever be your traveling companion!!! My heart hurts for you!!! Rest easy now, sweet Roxy girl!!! ?????

  17. What a beautiful tribute for a beautiful soul. I’m so glad I got to meet you, Roxy.
