So today was a tough day.  After about a 4 month Battle with a tumor on his leg Bosch crossed the Bridge to be with Sassy.  His pal and his buddy.  He is now healthy and Happy.  I have a broken heart but I know I will see my Marshmallow Boy as I liked to call him again.  Run Free my sweet sweet boy.  You will be missed by everyone in the family, Jasmine and Snickers too.  I know this is short and I haven’t written what my heart wants to say but it is so hard to put into words.  He was our longest living Rottie one month shy of 13.  I say he was 13.  He had arthritis in his back and feet that was manageable if it weren’t for this crap disease he would have lived a lot longer.  I miss you my sweet boy.  We all do

I was so shocked to see this in Sassy’s blog Michelle. And I am so sorry. There is never an easy way out with cancer, but I hope you can take comfort in knowing that his body is healthy and young again, and he and Sassy are now watching out for you and the girls from up above.

My heart aches for you my friend. If you want to talk I’m here.

Our dear sweet Michell.   So hard.  So ha4d ro write.   So hard to do even though we know it’s  an act of love. Such a selfless  act of love.   Bosch knew that you, moreso than anyone else, would be able to give him the loving gift of release at just the right time.  

Every single one of us cry with you roday.  And we’ve  been shedding some tears off and on now for several weeks, knowing  this time was coming.   But today…more today.  We know your heartbreak.  We k kmownyour bond.  We know Bosch’s connection with Sassy even makes the heartache a little deeper, of that’s  possible. 

And yet that same connection  gives you comfort knowing Sassy was DEFINITELY,  DEFINITELY,  DEFINITELY  running to greet Bosch.  OMD!  The reunion!!   The smiles!! The stub tails wagging st a rapid pace, the slobber slinging  from their jowls as they were kissing  and licking  each other…and throwing in a few butt sniffs just to make sure it really was Bosch and it really was Sassy!!

Weve  talked about Sassy sending uou TWO Rottie puppies after she headed to the Bridge.  She knew your heart hurt so badly that she had to send you TWO adorable puls yo help heal your heart, and to give Bosch aome company too.  Well, I think she also knew you would need Jasmine and Snickers to help your heart heal today too.  They will be there to give you some extra snuggles tonight Michelle.  And remember,  you have some special  “jewels” to help you feel our love and our snuggles too!

Bosch, Marshmallow  Bosch, Prince Bosh, Goodwill Ambassador for Rotties Bosch, Gentle Giant Bosch,  BigTeddy Bear Vosch, BFF Friend to Michelle Bosch, we are all soooo privileged  to have gotten to know rhis beautiful Soul.  

Always know that Bosch  knew he was loved every single day if his earth life.   The reason  he got to be a handsome 13 yr young fella’ was because  of your exquisite  care.  Not a lot of big dawgs reach that milestone.  But, then again, not many dawgs have someone  like you as their advocate  and as their BFF. 

Look up in the sky, and right next to Sassy’s Shining  Star, you will see another one shiny just as brightly  tonight.  Bosch and Sassy are together again💖💖

We are all  surrounding  you with our love and our great big non-stop group hugs.

Sweeeet treasured memories.  Bosch will have a permanent place in their hearts. ❤❤

The lessons he taught them will stay with them forever.  They will have an understanding  of what it means to love a dog, and be  loved by a dog,  that will help mold them into compassionate  and caring human beings.  And they will also have their favorite Aunt Michelle  as a role  model too💖

All of us are better for having Bosch, AND YOU, in our lives.  Sassy 

Michelle,  as you know, the hurt seems unbearable.   And when it seems like it can’t  hurt anymore, it hurts  even deeper than before.  And all you can do is go through it. You can alao remind yourself that Bosch wants you to focus on the happy times as soon as you can.  Little bit by little bit, sloooowly vut surely.

Bosch is with you always.  You know that.  And even though it may not feel like it right now, he’s in your heart.  With every beat of your heart, you will feel Bosch’s presence. 

Try it right now.  Be still.  Quiet your breath.  Put your hand on your heart.  Feel……  Bosch is there💖 

Love to you.

Oh yes he did Michelle! He is now their furever guardian angel dog. How are they taking it? Do they know yet? Oh gosh I’m so sorry, can’t even imagine having to explain it to the little ones.

We haven’t told them yet.  They are with their mom.  We will tell them on Wednesday.  They knew that he was sick and we didn’t know how long he would be here.  🙁

Aw Michelle, I’m so sorry. 

Dealing with one dog with cancer is one too many in my book, 2 dogs is just not fair.

I hope there is a little comfort knowing that Sassy and Bosch have reunited and are waiting for you together.  And 13! That is amazing. I know what a great mom you are to your pack, he lived a long life full of love and anything and everything a pup could want.   Longevity doesn’t make the parting any easier though.

Bosch has joined Sassy to watch over you and guide you.  He lives on in your heart.

So today I decided I wanted to do something to honor our boy.   I sat down and was putting together a video.  The windows movie maker crashed when i was adding music to it so had to start all over.  I am happy the way this turned out but its so hard to pick pictures and video of 13 years.

A life that was bigger than ever.   I hope this shows a little of his personality and why he was so special.

Michelle! Thank you so much for this lovely video. It really DOES show his personality, I was laughing so hard when he was barking at the evil barrel! And the wrasslin’ matches in the snow. Oh my DOG and the howling was just music to my ears! Bosch always looked so handsomely serious in the photos I saw of him, so to watch all the funnier aspects of his personality was a real treat.

Michelle,

I’m soo sorry for your loss! I know that Bosch is at peace and has joined all of his friend’s @rainbow bridge . I can only imagine the howling, playing, love and joy all of our furry babies are experiencing. 

p.s. I just watched the lovely video tribute… and I must tell you that Emerson absolutely loved it! Thank you for sharing a snippet of your memories.
