Today we’re dedicating the blog to Knox – a loyal foster brother, a devoted friend, and an amazing ambassadog for all pit bulls. On Friday, our friends over at Pittieful Love made the heartbreakingly impossible decision to end Knox’s suffering, after an unexpected illness took over his body in a matter of weeks.
We never had the honor of meeting Knox in person, but his People’s beautifully written stories about him and his foster siblings made Knox a popular guy in the foster blogosphere. His stunning good looks may have been a factor, as well.
To Jess and Brian – I know that there are no words that can take away the pain you’re feeling right now. But I know that Knox will be waiting at the door for you on the Other Side when you’re ready to greet him again. And boy will his tail be waggin’ when he sees you!
And to Knox…Thank you for making the world a better place while you were here. In your memory, we’ll all continue to carry on your message of love and acceptance. You will be missed, and forever in our hearts.
“What we have once enjoyed, we can never lose;
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.”
Helen Keller (pit bull owner)
