4 weeks ago Rosco had a major seizure on a Monday morning. Tuesday he was diagnosed with brain cancer. It was the start to the hardest month of my life. We did everything we could to keep him happy during that last month. He died Saturday morning May 19th. It was a sunny day.
It has been pretty quiet around the house this past week without him. He had a big presence for such a little guy. Snorting, farting, and always playing Kong.

Rosco was the best partner in crime I could ever ask for. He sent me off with a big kiss before every bike ride. He was the first to come running when I got home. He spent countless hours chewing his Kong while I would ride the trainer. He couldn't control his excitement when I would bring the wash bucket in for some soap and water because it was time to clean bikes. He loved it when the UPS man came to the door w/ new bike parts at the start of each season because it meant a trip to the basement to work on bikes. He was always waiting for me when I would get home from a weekend at the races. He loved taking naps with me after hard training days. He was my faithful companion.
Rosco always loved going for a ride in the car. Whether it was a trip to the beach, to the cabin, or across the country! He would get so pumped. Our last trip to Tuscon was the best. When we arrived we took him for a walk to play Kong and even though we hadn't been there for a year he knew exactly what was about to happen and as we got closer he started pulling at the end of his leash. He was so smart. He ripped it up that first day in Tucson.
He always loved an adventure and never ever looked back. Well buddy, I hope you are enjoying your new adventure. Your mommy and your daddy miss you.
