Sharing our lives with our gentle giant brought more joy than we ever could have ever imagined. Roscoe’s early life left a lot to be desired but when we pulled into that parking lot to rescue our boy, one look at him towering out of the back of that pickup truck and we knew we were in over our heads. Roscoe stood approximately 4 ft. tall and weighed in at a hefty 180 lbs and after spending the past 6 years with him I can say without any doubt that every single ounce of him loved his family. His days were spent being spoiled rotten; camping, boating, smelling all of the things on his walks and riding in the car just because he loved to have the wind flap his giant elephant ears as we rolled down the road. His personality was intoxicating and we doted on his every adorable quirk. Roscoe was stubborn and testy in his later years but we were completely wrapped around his ginormous paws and found his senility even more charming. We secretly hoped we would never have to say goodbye to our huge lover boy but his enormous heart could not outlast his failing body. There will never be another one like him but we are tremendously thankful for the time we spent with him. He was so much more than a pet to us and we will cherish our memories of him forever.
