Josie's Journey with Osteosarcoma

Josie The Greatest Dane

Where’s My Little Blue Dog….

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Every day when I come home, I always say “Where’s my little blue dog???” as I greet Josie…

Today, Josie left my side….I will no longer find her bouncy little spirit in the living room upon my arrival….I wont be able to smell her stinky feet, scratch her itchy shoulder, kiss the soft spot above her nose or spoon with her and hear the joy in the rumble of her throat.

My soul is crushed, my head hurts, and I feel like my heart has been slowly ripped out of my chest…..

    I’m so very, very sorry. Your pain is excruciating right now and we hurt for you…and with you. I jist went back and visited Josie’s post…and yes indeed, the relatinship you two have is “the sweetest love”.

    I marvel at what a beautiful soul Josie is…a very, very special courageous and gentle soul.

    Gully and Orra will mourn for her too. But they also know, as only dogs can, that Josie’s presence is surrounding all of you from an energy we may not be able to see, but we can all feel.

    Josie is an inspiration to all of us. Your bo d, your devotion to each othere, your connection…all that is ‘soul deep” and transcends our earthly bodies. Nothing can ever separate the love that you and Mosie snre.

    The shattered, broken neart will soon be glued back together with all the happy loving memories Josie and you shared. She lived her life to the fullest and couldn’t have possibly been more loved!
    Josie kows you will be sad and grief stricken But know this to be true. Josie wants you to be happy and to let those wonderful memories she left for you to overtake the feeling of loss and to brng smiles to your heart as it heals.

    She is such an elegant, graceful dog who lives a life of meaing. Josie’s life mattered and she will never be forgotten. She is a hero to al of us.

    Holsingyou gentlyin our hearts tonight and surrou dingyou with Josie’s eternal love and grace,

    I am so sorry you lost your Josie girl. She was beautiful. Allow yourself to miss her forever. Your heart has been ripped out. I know we all know that we will not have them forever, but that is so hard to accept. If your heart wasn’t hurting this much, it would mean you didn’t love her right, an obviously you did <3

    I’m sorry to hear about your Josie. I know she must have been the greatest dane in the world, and the sweetest too. I hope you can find comfort in your many happy memories together. She will be with you now forever in spirit. I hope you feel that. She is with you right now.

    oh my…. oh my ….
    I don’t think we ever get used to reading these “final posts” on our sweet babies adventures… And as I type these words, my cheeks are wet because I know exactly what you are going through.. The final gift of ultimate love by letting that leash go one last time is a heart crushing emotional roller coaster that we wish that we never, ever had to ride.
    Josie will always be with you in your heart.. nothing can take that away… and I can tell you that it will get better with time.. but I’m not. Because it hurts. It f&*king hurts like hell!! And you know what that means? It means that we loved them to the last beat of their heart.. and they loved us back. What a blessing, and what a gift, and it makes me sad that some people never, ever experience that love, if you know what I mean.
    You can vent here, scream here, cry here… and some of us may be doing it beside you, but all of us understand…. we do.
    Just close your eyes.. open your heart and you will feel her… Always!!
    Christine….. with Franklin in her heart♥

    Ohhhh noooooo. This wasn’t what I expected to read today, my heart just broke for you and your beautiful Josie. I’m soooo sorry.

    Josie has been such an amazing, inspawrational girl for so long here, please try to take comfort in knowing that her story will go on to comfort so many people as they look for hope at a very, very dark time. Josie defied ALL the odds and kicked some butt. That kind of legend never dies, it just gets bigger and bigger and fills more hearts with love and hope.

    Please know you are in our thoughts. We are so sorry.
