Goodbye My Sweet Bosco

Dec 30, 2017

March 7th, 2002 - December 27th, 2017 🌈

We are beyond heartbroken. Our sweet little Bosco passed over the rainbow bridge early Wednesday morning. He went peacefully at home on his bed with his favorite blankets and I was right by his side comforting him. My heart is shattered into a million pieces and the house is so lonely without him. I literally have a pit in my stomach and pain in my heart.

It wouldn’t be kidney disease that took him, but congestive heart failure.

After a few months of ups and downs, I truly believe he was ready to be pain free. We noticed his health started to decline over the weekend, but he held on for one more Christmas together. There are even a few of his presents still wrapped under the tree. :( We took him to the vet on Tuesday but she wasn't very optimistic and after an xray, he had a lot of fluid in his lungs. We immediately started medicine to try and drain them and hoped it would work over the coming days. We came home and he was pretty tired out from a long day and Brandon went to work. As the night went on, I noticed his breathing was even more abnormal and I just knew it was his time. The hardest part was being alone and the frantic call I had to make to Brandon. He rushed home from work but he was too late. Our sweet boy was gone.

Bosco, thank you for the almost 16 years of love, happiness and memories you brought to our lives. We hope you are already enjoying all the donuts and chicken you can eat and are keeping all of our family members and fur friends in heaven company. You will live in our hearts forever until we meet again one day....

You no longer greet me as I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile, to make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you, you were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend... a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal - for the silence to go away.
I still listen for you, and miss you every day.
You were such a great companion, constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear, the pawprints left by you.

  1. Oh Jessica.. I cry thinking of the heartache. It's always something else that takes them... Piri had kidney disease and cancer but it was pneumonia that eventually took him. I am hoping that Bosco has met PIri and Bartles <3 my heart goes out to you and Brandon.

  2. Jess, I just wanted to let you know that I'm still thinking of you & Brandon everyday. My heart broke reading your original post and now reading that you were alone I got all sad and teary all over again. :-( I hope and pray that in time the pain dissipates, take the time to heal. Bosco was so lucky to have you as his Mom, I'm sure he will always be with you. <3

  3. I'm so sad to read this. My heart breaks for you. I know the pain all to well, but it will get better. Remember all the happy times! Hugs!
