Just before Christmas, a young, healthy Knox sent a special holiday package to Chick and then-foster Dora the Explorer.
Today he is gone.
This weekend, our pal from Maryland Knox succumbed to a mysterious illness that grabbed hold a couple of weeks ago, drained his health, left specialists with no answers, and ultimately took his life. Jess and Brian said goodbye on Friday.
It always leaves us a little empty inside when a dog we know passes on to the next world. But Knox left a different, even bigger kind of void– the kind you feel when a young, vibrant life disappears with no reason, little warning, and no explanation.
Please visit Knox’ facebook page or blog and share a few kind words today.
Knox, you were a perfect foster brother, a champion ball chaser, a dapper ladies man, a pit bull ambassador, and the center of your mom and dad’s world. Rest in peace, sweet boy. We’ll never forget you.
So, so sorry. What a beauty he was.
I am so deeply sorry- what a beautiful dog. He will be missed.
oh so so sorry … 😦
How sad. Rest in peace Knox.
RIP Knox. You will be missed. I’ll go to your page and write your mommy & daddy.
I have been following Knox’s blog and have sent healing thoughts, power of the paw, and prayer and was heartbroken to find out he rapidly declined. RIP sweet Knox
The loss of a beloved pooch is never easy. My thoughts are with everyone touched by Knox.
RIP Knox – we will light a candle here for you tonight.
I learned of Knox’s passing this morning from Two Pitties in the City’s blog. This is such a sad thing to hear about, I think especially since Knox was so young. He was a handsome fellow and my heart just goes out to that young couple.
I have been following that blog for a few weeks now and its so sad to see that such a beautiful dog has gone.
I am so sorry. It’s so sad when a vibrant life is lost.
RIP little man.
His life was brief, but ultimately so sweet. He did not know his timewas cut short. But he knew love, trust, and a sense of belonging. That is all a dog EVER wants and needs. My condolences to those who are suffering his loss.
I am sorry for your loss. Knox, from what I gather had a real impact on your lives. Thanks for sharing the memories. We pour so much into our pets; I’m glad to see that you are keeping his memory alive within your blog. So sad. Again, my condolences.
So heartbreaking for all…many hugs
Awful news. Awful, awful, awful. Knox was such a beautiful dog and it’s a tragedy his time with his family was cut so short. He will be remembered by many.
I am so sad and sorry for you. Last year, in the space of a few months, my young golden retriever died, my senior lab died, and my beautiful young siamese cat died. So I understand your pain so well. I am crying with you.
What a sweet-looking guy. I feel you so deeply. We recently lost our boy, Sailor, to heart disease…we still struggle daily…but we are incredibly grateful to have know him for nine years. Yes, the pain is totally worth it. I truly believe we’ll see them again, when there’s heaven on earth.
So sorry to hear about your friend
Benny & Lily
I find that when I can’t think of a thing to say to express my feelings, all I need to do is read your blog. Nothing can do justice to Knox’s memory, but this is about as close as we can get. Thank you.
I’m so very sorry 😦
