View Full Version : RIP Josie

My very sweet special boxer girl Josie is gone. She went to the RB at 2:00 P.M. today.
Her heart was just not strong enough for her anymore.:(

I will give you a few details so you all will know what happened. I'm so sorry I didn't tell anyone she was sick before.http://www.click-smilies.de/sammlung0304/traurig/sad-smiley-056.gif

I knew that she was having problems with her heart for the last month I just haven’t told any one. I guess deep down I was denying anything was wrong with her and I didn’t want anyone to worry.

I let the dogs out this morning and left them out this morning and let them play outside by themselves for a hour or so. After that I let them back in Josie went straight toward her crate, I made her drink a little water. She actually drank all of it I thought maybe she was feeling better. Around 12 P.M. I let them back out again so they could go potty they only stayed out for about 20 minutes. Around 1:30 I noticed that Josie acted like she could not breath. I hurried up and got the kids in the car and rushed her to the vets. But it was to late she was gone before we even got there.

Josie was buried under her favorite tree when we got home. Rest In Peace My Sweet Girl. You were too young to be taking away from us. I hope you have fun playing at the RB please wait for me.

I’m sorry I can’t talk anymore. I've gotta go.

Too much loss this month. :( I'm so sorry to hear about Josie. Take some comfort that Brock and Jake are waiting to show her around the RB. So many wonderful pets being lost. Know that she'll be waiting for you, young and full of life, when it's time to pick her up.

RIP Josie. You'll be missed.

OMG, I'm so sorry, Tina. :(:( What a horrible month.

Rest in Peace, sweet Josie girl. :(

Relax at the RB, Josie. You're no longer in pain and can run and play all you want. Tina, I would probably have been in a little denial myself. It hurts so bad to think of our best friends leaving us. At least she was with you when she left, knowing that you loved her.

07-16-2004, 06:40 PM
Tina, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I bet Josie, Speedy, and Max are having a good ol' time at rainbow bridge right now. Rest in Peace, Josie.

There's nothin' like that Boxer bounce
The kidney-bean dance they do
And those big, soft eyes.
That is what will greet you someday
At the Rainbow Bridge,
Josie all a-wiggle and filled with glee
Bet she's playin' up there right now
If she's not sneakin' treats from my Mom
And while I know your heart is sad right now
Her silly self will always be with you
And love, as always, lives on.

Tina, I didn't know. :( I have been bouncing in and out of Pet Talk, sporadically, and I never saw, until today, that you had lost your Josie.

I'm so sorry.

07-23-2004, 01:50 PM
I'm so stunned and heartsick to hear this sad, sad news Tina:(:(:( Seems it was just a couple of weeks ago that you posted new pics of the kids playing outside:( My heart goes out to you Tina. We all know the great grief you are experiencing and that awful feeling of the whole experience being unreal. JYou know Tina, Josie is now a beautiful furangel, healthy and whole, gracing the Rainbow Bridge with her beautiful spirit. And I know that all of our departed furkids are there for her, welcoming her with open paws and keeping her company until that happy day you and she are together once more. All my love and most sincere condolences to you Tina. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Sandra

I'm so sorry to hear about Josie Tina, she was taken from us much too soon. Perhaps God has big plans for her as an angel dog. I know she'll be watching over you and your girls, and she is healthy again at the Rainbow Bridge.
Play hard sweetie, we'll miss you.:(
