Kerry,

I am so very sorry. I am so impressed that you have been able to make this impossible decision to honor Mosby by letting him go. What a true gift, you clearly love him so much and are able to put him first, which in my opinion is the true definition of love and a Mom. Marley's mom, Jaime, recently described saying goodbye to Marley not as the decision to shorten her life, but the decision to shorten her death. I think that's exactly what you are choosing for Mosby. How lucky any of us would be to have someone like you in our corner.

I can't tell you that I read this without crying, but I can't tell you I wasn't laughing and smiling also. What a wonderful, perfect day you have spent with Mosby. I know that made him so happy and what a beautiful memory for you to keep. 

There really is no greater gift than to honor Mosby in this way, to stay with him even when life is impossibly hard and to love him each and every second. This is how you get to beat cancer, with Mosby going out on his terms still feeling like Mosby. I hope you get to snuggle tonight. 

We will be thinking of you tomorrow and will be right here when you need us.

With so much Love, Amy & Rusty heart

I am just heartbroken to read this. The Colonel has captured all our hearts and it is so terribly hard to know that his earthly journey is close to the end. I do know exactly what you mean about the peace that comes from clarity at such a difficult time. You are keeping your promise to Mosby. You will not allow him to suffer. You have the ability, insight and, above all, the love to release him from his pain. 

Your day with him sounds just wonderful. A beautiful celebration of your love and the life you have shared together. 

We are thinking of you,

Kerry, my heart hurts and I have tears in my eyes knowing that probably at this moment the Colonel has been released from the pain of this awful disease. I'm so truly sorry for all of you, this latest turn in his story happened way too fast. How I wish that things could be different for all of you. But you are such a strong momma and made the kindest, most loving decision for your sweetie. It's clear he knew he was ready when he went in for the snuggle, what a beautiful memory to hold in your heart.

Thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey with Mosby right up through his last breath. You all gave so much to help him have the greatest life ever after cancer, and that's something that will never be forgotten by any of us. Mosby's blog, the adorable photos and videos, all of it add up to HOPE for others who are just now starting down the scary path of osteosarcoma.

Mosby, go find Otis and all our other heroes OK? We salute you and your pack, and send all our love across the universe to you're brand new heavenly spirit. Be well and keep an eye on our Tripawd angels for us. xoxoxox

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Kerry,

I am so sorry Mosby has left your life.You worked so hard with him and he was such a champ--so lucky to have you caring so much about everything the entire time he was recovering. Thank you for your generous sharing of his journey through all of this.

What a wonderful way for him to say goodbye--the snuggle in.

With love--

Lisa and Luka

Thank you, Lisa. I've really been struggling this week, but I know we did everything we could, and that we did right by him in the end. I hope that Mosby is happy, healthy and whole now, wherever he is; he deserves it, especially after the last 6 months.

It truly does leave ahole in your heart...an open wound that hurts for a long time.    You and Mosby will mend that wounded heart by filling it with the beautiful memories the two of you shared.heart   They are real and they are forever.  For me, I fou d looking at pictures helped.

Just curious if Mosby has sent you any signs yet?  Sometimes it takes them awhile because they are having so much fun frolicking and playing at the Bridge.  Swimming in coolppristine waters and eating any kind of junk food imaginable keeps them quite busy.  But pay attention.  It may be that you'll nltice the sign thrlugh something Arlo does.    Often they send their Spirit energy through other animals or other forms of nature.

We are here to support in anyway we can.  And remember, we also have the TRIPAWDS HELPLINE staffed with members you know and have been able to plow through to the other side of grief.

Love and hugs

Thanks, Sally. No signs yet, but I like to imagine there's an unlimited pasta bar there, and Mosby has been chowing down on pasta non-stop since his arrival. That was our favorite thing to share, and I made sure he had his very own bowl before he left us. 🙂

Okay, so we now have a glimpse of what Mosby's job will be at the Bridge!

Right next to the Ice Cream Bar, you'll see this:

Sally You are too much! I loved this! Of course the Colonel has his own pasta bar and our Angels will be lining up. Three Paws Up! You're killing me here - genius. I want to visit Mosby's Pasta bar too.

Kerry, I know you are hurting like crazy right now, please know that we are thinking of you and talking about you and Mosby. What a special guy and a special love.

What's Mosby's favorite pasta? I'm trying to figure out the Daily Special...

Sally that really made me laugh. Mosby would be all over that. But the problem with putting Mosby in charge of the pasta bar is that he'd eat all of it! :/

Amy, our favorite was angel hair - just straight up! After dinner, he and I would share the leftover pasta. Half the fun was in watching him eat it. I took a slow-mo video of him eating pasta the day he left us (in addition to tons of other pictures and videos), and while it's not the most distinguished video of Mosby, it makes me smile every time I watch it. That dog loves pasta. Took after his mama, who never met a carb she didn't like. 😉

EDIT: My original attempt did not work, so hopefully this will. I encourage everyone to get slow-mo videos of your doggies eating their favorite thing if you can. 🙂

That's ok, I knew what you meant. 🙂 And Mosby was my buddy. 

I should start a new thread somewhere else that's just pictures of Mosby eating.  I have a video of him eating a cheeseburger his last full day with us. He ate it so politely. Sweet Mosby.
