Epitaph for Rocco

This is Rocco, a handsome and dignified Staffie boy and beloved anipal. Rocco did not have a very easy life on earth and now he has passed over the Rainbow Bridge those who knew him in his last days, in particular Louise Rae of Staffie Rescue was able to recognise the huge spirit in this poor creature and help him to cross over in peace, serenity and knowing he was not alone and was loved.

There are many, many people out there who are champions for our rights but sadly there are those who think we are fair game and throwaway objects.

Whatever your faith, creed or belief please send out a thought for Rocco as you read these words and help him as he helps other anipals who cross over the Rainbow Bridge.

It is said that Staffies are the most loyal of breeds so what better gatekeeper of the Rainbow Bridge than Rocco.

Dog bless you big man and I am humbled to have known you, even for such a short time.

Till next time. Love & leggies, Nutty x

    A very, very fitting tribute to a genuine gentleman doggy, who really left his mark on us and this world. Rocco had a heart and spirit as big as a mountain, and rose above all the hardships he endured while in his earthly life. He is now a tireless worker over the Rainbow Bridge, and we are all so much better for knowing him, and experiencing his undying love, resilience, and ability to forgive.
    Bless you Rocco xx
