Dawson Alacai Rodriguez
This boy was a two time rescue we got him at a year old from Florida Boxer Rescue. He was so badly neglected by two previous owners but you would never know it. He was so cheerful and happy when we met him. We took him home the same day. We bonded immediately. He brought so much joy to my family. I was his person. He picked me. And from that moment on he was always at my side and he got me through so many tough times in my life. He loves me unconditionally. He was my best friend and losing him it’s so heartbreaking. But I think he knows that we never left his side because we loved on him and hugged him all the way to the end, the very end. This morning I woke up to walk him and when I went to his bed he wasn’t there and it hit me that he is truly gone I laid in his bed and cried. I’m so grateful that we were able to keep him home to the end and that he passed in our home with all of us there with him. I hate that he’s gone but I find comfort in knowing that he passed peacefully I could see the peace in his face because he had been suffering. And I find comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering. I will miss my boy every day that he is not here. Every time I see his bed, every time I see his bowls and every time I see his toys that were always scattered through the house I will miss him . I love you Dawson I know one day we’ll meet again.Marilyn RodriguezTampa, FloridaOctober 8, 2019

The very first time I met you I fell in love. I wanted to bring you home with me but your mom would not let me. How much I enjoyed watching your daily tricks on facebook! Even when times were hard, I could always count on you doing some sort of antics and you would make me laugh. Dawson you touched so many lives, had a heart of gold and a very sweet yet mischevious nature. You will be very missed but never ever forgotten. I bet you are up there laying on some fluffy clouds where you are not supposed to be bringing laughter to the angels. Until we meet again...Love ya, Aunt Cindy.Cindy Diaz - October 10, 2019

I don't think he could have been loved anymore.
The only comfort in his passing is that he was with someone who truly loved him.
