Eleven years ago, our lives changed when we adopted Ruffles. My family knew that once we met her that we instantly connected. We changed her name to Roxie to reflect her live-wire beautiful character. Yesterday we were devastated with the passing of our beautiful soul. RIP my beautiful little girl. We miss you. Thank you for your energy, the laughter, love and joy you brought to our household. We were so blessed to have you as part of our family. You have taught us a lot. Thank you to Gerdy’s rescue for enriching our lives. We are forever grateful for the love and passion you give to our little furry friends in giving them a second change into finding a living home. Roxie made our home even more loving.
