Our Roscoe
Joe and Cyndy Ulreich from Waterford

About ten years ago, I met and fell in love with a wonderful man, then moved to Michigan. My family was in Ohio. I got homesick many times and begged my husband to let me get a dog, a companion. We went toured the pets at the Humane Society. We met and fell in love with a mixed breed named Clyde. He was so cute with his "broken ears". He was part shepherd, part chow, part golden lab. We adopted him and he became such a wonderful part of our family. Since Clyde is also my father's name, we called our new pooch by the middle name "Roscoe". In fact, we called him "Roscoe with the Broken Ear". He was our protector, our son, our friend. When our grandson was born, Roscoe made it his primary duty to protect that boy. Whenever we saw Christian, we saw Roscoe. The two of them followed each other all over, always together. We loved him for ten wonderful years. After Christmas this last year, we noticed Roscoe was really starting to show signs of his age. He was eating much less, moving much slower, and just gazing at us like he knew his time was short. Eventually, he started having increased symptoms and had lost alot of weight. We had recently moved and had to find another vet to look after our Roscoe. My husband miraculously found Dr. Sara Beard at VCA White Lake. She listened to him and asked him about what was best for Roscoe. When we later realized Roscoe wasn't going to get better this time, we took him to ask her about end of life issues for our friend, our protector, our pooch. She listened to every word we said and helped us to feel at ease with the toughest decision we ever had to make. When the day came that we knew any further days would just cause Roscoe to suffer, I called to ask for help. We took Roscoe in that night. The wonderful staff told us to take all the time we needed to say good-bye. We sat right on the floor cuddled to Roscoe and loved him with all our hearts. Dr. Sara sat right on the floor with us and gave Roscoe peace. She was amazing at helping us feel the hardest decision we ever made was the best decision we could have made for our Beloved Roscoe. The entire staff allowed us to cry and grieve. Roscoe is chasing puppies in heaven now and we thank Dr. Sara and the wonderful people at VCA White Lake for their kind hearted and gentle ways, allowing us to have peace in our hearts knowing the our Roscoe is not suffering anymore. We miss him terribly, but know that we will continue to have our pets cared for by Dr. Sara and the kind staff at White Lake.
