    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.

    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.

    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.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you

    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.

    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    Thankyou for the kind words. I can't stop thinking about her how happy she was, how she had such a free spirit.

    I'm really going to miss her.

    Tina: I'm so sorry for the loss of Josie. May she bask in the eternal sunshine and enjoy the warm sweet grasses of the RB.

    Hugs to you Tina. I know your heart is breaking now and I know that Josie is watching over you until the day you meet again.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!
