One year ago, May 6th 2011, was the day I lost my precious baby girl, Josie. She was my entire world. My best friend.
I got Josie when I was 13 years old. I begged my dad for years to let me get a puppy of my own. And he finally agreed if I saved up and took care of her myself. It was the best day of my life when I got her, and we did everything together. I went through a lot of trouble with friends in my teens and I really didn't have any. I was depressed and alone so I guess I depended on her even more. She was always there for me. She snuggled me when I cried, and was there when I was happy. I could swear she "listened" to everything I told her.
I have so many good memories with her. She was such a great dog and I was so blessed to have her in my life. I honestly can't believe she's been gone for a year now. I still miss her but I'm able to think of the good times now instead of feeling only sadness when thinking of her. Though I am tearing up writing this now. I wasn't able to do a memorial post when she passed. It was just to hard. I couldn't really talk about it for a long time. So it really means a lot to me those who took the time to read this. She really meant everything to me. I love her so much. I have a picture, paw print and her ashes on my shelf with her favorite toy. I'm sure that's silly but it comforts me to know I have a part of her.
I'd like to share some photos of her life with you all.
When I first got her. She was so small and adorable. We would go for a walk and come home and I'd lie down on the couch with her on my belly and she'd drift off to sleep.
unfortunately I didn't have a nice camera when I was younger so no good puppy pictures.
my girl and me when I was younger.
my girls snuggling with me. another very painful memory (still painful now) is my precious kitten seen here too, passed away 3 months after I lost Josie from kidney failure. I honestly didn't think I was going to survive. I'm still not sure I would have if I didn't have Clover then.
They brought me so much happiness and love.
Also here are 2 videos of Josie at her favorite place doing her favorite thing - running and bounding through the fields.
thank you for taking the time to read this.
