So when Pittieful Love's blog and Facebook Page started reporting that their darling Knox was sick, my heart broke. Most of us in this blog world have never met, but we share a special kinship. The need to advocate for an oft-misunderstood breed. Knox was the perfect ambassador for the breed. An expert foster brother, a canine blood donor, and the love of his parent's life.
Knox got sick two weeks ago with Mycoplasma Hemocanis. In a short two weeks, Knox had gotten so sick his parents made the heartbreaking decision to let him go, in his favorite spot in his home. Its always sad when a pet dies. Especially such a young one, who had so much left to teach us.
I frequently find myself thinking of the pups featured on the various blogs as celebrities with amazing personalities, that I would be lucky to meet. I always felt that if I met Knox he would meet me with a smile, a tail wag, and want to play. The solace lies in knowing that the past couple of years were the best of his life, and knowing that we all got to share in a little part of it.
RIP Knox, May 2009-February 3, 2012
