Memories of Jesse
I saw your face on Facebook in May 2011 and by June 1, 2011 I had flown you to safety from Sebring, FL to here in East Alton, IL and for over 12 wonderful years, you were my big beautiful baby boy. Sadly, on September 26, 2023 you left me peacefully sometime in the early morning as I got ready for work. I miss you so terribly and the house is too quiet with you being gone. Rock those wings puppers, I love you. Yesterday, sometime between 4 and 6 in the morning of September 26, 2023 my beloved heart dog Jesse passed quietly in his sleep. He had been coughing up foamy stuff the evening before and I was going to take him back to the vet that morning. He had just been there for a bad cough on Monday September 18, 2023 and was doing so much better. I was messaging my Supervisor about taking the day off to get him back to the vet and when I looked over at him on his bed, I saw he was bloated (a natural occurrence after a body passes) and jumped up and went to him, touching him. He had passed and was cold. I yelled for my wife and she came rushing out of the bathroom. of course, I lost it. I first saw Jesse's picture on Facebook back in May 2011 on a page dedicated to rescuing and saving dogs from a high kill shelter in Sebring, FL and immediately fell in love. Long story short, I paid the vet bills, sent money to the person down there who would keep him for the night and take him to the Tampa, FL airport and re-imbursed the lady who was helping me save him, for the crate she had bought for him. I paid for his airline ticket from Tampa to Chicago to St. Louis, where I drove from Illinois to get him for his Freedom Ride home. From there, it was a love affair. We had three other dogs and Jesse fit in well, even though there were several instances of fights with my Shepherd kid, but we got through it. For the past five years, Jesse was the last of the pack, the others having gone on between June 2017 and September 2018. Jesse was my heart dog and I am beyond being devastated. I miss him so much already. Nobody to greet me as I come into the house, nobody to share my food with, to let outside to potty, to be with me always. I am broken hearted, to say the least. 10/3/23: It's been a week and I still cannot wrap my head around you leaving me. I miss you so much, my heart is shattered pupper. You are my hardest goodbye sweet boy.10/24/23 4 weeks since you left me. 10/26/23 It's now been 1 month and I cry almost every day. I'm still shattered that I wasn't able to say goodbye and to hold you as you crossed over. 11/11/23 It's been s horribly hard since you had to leave me. I miss you so damn much pupper and today I am just crying so much. I really wish you were here so I could have said goodbye to you. Happy Thanksgiving 2023 11/26/23: 2 months since you left me so suddenly during the early morning and I miss you so damn much. It's not fair, you were getting better but now I know what it was that took you. I'm so devastated that I was not there to hold you and tell you how much I loved you and how good of a boy you were and that it was okay. I miss you so much Jesse. 12/25/23 Merry Christmas Pupper 1/1/24 Happy New Year Pupper
