I introduced Rosie in my post Rescue Stories: Rosie. Rosie and her loving mom, Cinnamon, have become a strong voice against puppy mills.
Recently and unexpectedly sweet Rosie died. Cinnamon is devastated as any of us that have lost a beloved companion understand. I am still grieving for Jelly Bean and I often cry in sadness and joy for all my other darling babies (my dogs) I have lost. This blog is dedicated to the memory of one of my special needs girls I had to let go a year ago, Sophie .
Be The Change. Sometimes the Difference Between Life and Death IS YOU!
Even in grief Cinnamon has remained a staunch advocate against puppy mills and for animal rights. I want to share one of her facebook posts to help spread the word.

Quote from Cinnamon on Everything Rosie Facebook :
“Rosie was and always will be beautiful to me. I see a spectacular otherworldly creature from a children’s storybook when I look at her pictures and she radiated something magical when she was in my arms. HOWEVER…what I also see and remember is how those little legs didn’t work as well as she wanted them to and as well as they should have. I see the joy she can hardly contain but can’t fully express. I see a face I
dearly loved and will go to my grave loving; yet, I also see the face of a dog that entered this world through a toxic gene pool because of greed and ignorance.
Please understand that my head and heart ache when people write to say it is such a shame she never had puppies. I know those folks mean well.
