Rosie Smith

A friend says that you can tell how well a dog is loved by the number of nicknames she has. Rosie aka Roseanne Roseannadanna aka Our Dear Little Rose (including adaption of Irish melody Sweet Rosie O'Grady), the Irish Basenji, and the Enforcer returned our love in many ways. She appointed herself chairdog of the committee to welcome us home. Without fail she would meet her people at the door brown eyes glistening, dancing side-to-side with an occasional bounce and perpetually waving of her corkscrew tail.

She now knows peace and bliss and I look forward to seeing her looking just like as she appears in this portrait.

They will be there when old friends show up. They will be waiting there at the door." ~ Cynthia Rylant Dog Heaven © 1995
