Tess’s Transition

IMG_3724

Tess Oxford

AKA Tessaroo, Tessarooni, Roo-Roo, Rooster because a dog with a personality this big deserves more than one name!

She loved barking, and chasing people, anything on or with wheels, and squirrels. Once, she gave herself aspirational pneumonia from drinking the ocean.

Once, she went crazy in our sprinkler and tore up our hose.

Once, she dove to the bottom of a backyard pool to retrieve a Frisbee.

Once, she got lost in a canyon about 5 miles from their apartment and found her own way home.

Once, she sniffed out a baby opossum under a pallet of 2 x4’s in a Home Depot store.

Once, she refused to move out of the family picture.

Once…twice…okay, FOUR times she visited Santa Claus with Finn.

Once, she competed in a diving event for dogs.

Once, she tore a hole in the middle of our dining room carpet.

Once, she rocked Finn in her cradle every time she cried.

Once, she came into our lives and wormed her way into our hearts and now, even though she’ll being entering the next stage of life, changing states of being, crossing over…she’ll forever be a presence in our family.

Thanks for being a good friend, Tessaroo.

We love you.
