5/17/2005 - 1/24/2020Our beautiful Akita Roxy has made it to Heaven. After battling through a great deal of pain she has earned her wings. She was truly the most beautiful, smart and dedicated family dog anyone could possibly have. She was truly a gentle giant. We will never be able to replace her. Roxy brought joy and touched everyone’s life she ever came in contact with. Our family including Roxy’s best friend out Sisnese family cat Coo Coo mourn her passing and will grieve for a long time to come. We loved her with everything in our hearts but Roxy returned that love and dedication to us indefinitely .
We will never forget you Roxy. Hope you are running around pain free in Heaven. See you again when we get there! We love you 💘! RIP sweet Roxy!

Cath and Jay,
I’m really sad for you and know you’ll miss her so!
I love the Roxy stories!
I raise a candle in her honor and send her a big belly rub!

Gonna miss Roxy. Such a sweet, precious puppy!! She brought many years of joy to the family. She lived a wonderful life. She lives on in our hearts and our memories. So sorry for you loss...Ray K - January 28, 2020
I know how much you loved Roxy because you talked about her so often. It’s so difficult to part with our beloved furry family members. In many ways their love is kinder and purer than the way our kids love us. I know I will be a mess when my Truman goes.
Thinking of you all!

Roxy was one of a kind. She was so sweet and really was a gentle giant. She was the perfect cuddle buddy because she was the size of an actual person. I will never forget the day I picked her out and we brought her home with us. I knew she would be the best dog for our family after our late dog Kellon. She will be missed greatly, love you Roxy girl.Rachel Samuels - January 27, 2020

So sorry for your loss. I understand how you must feel. Our beloved Bear has been gone for 10 years and we still miss him (even the naughty parts!). A fond farewell to sweet Roxy!

With sympathy,

Lorne and Mary Beth

I’m so sorry for your loss Jay. Pets are so much a part of the family. My pup pup is 15 and hanging in there . He’s so much a part of my life. My 3rd child. Just remember you gave her the best life possible and you got so much unconditional love.

You’ll Meet Me in the Light
I know that you can’t see me,
But trust me I’m right here.
Although I’m up in heaven,
My love for you stays near.

So often I see you crying,
Many times you call my name,
I want so much to lick your face
And ease some of your pain.

I wish that I could make you see
That Heaven indeed is real.
If you could see me run and play
How much better you would feel.

But our loving God has promised me
That when the time is right,
You’ll step out of the darkness and
Meet me in the light

I'm so sorry for your loss! It's truly heartbreaking. Lap of Love is so incredible with the transition of earning their wings. They helped our little Bayleigh back in October.

Sending hugs for you and Katherine.
