Man Wrote À Heartbreaking Letter For His Dog To Say Goodbye (2 pics + 3 gifs)

Posted in Random » Awesome   31 May 2016   / 2995 views

This is a story of Kris from Prestonsburg, Kentucky, and his pup Jessie who has recently passed away. The letter that Kris wrote to his best friend is so warm and heartbreaking that it will touch you beyond words.

It won't hurt if you take a box of tissues.

The letter is entitled  “You Gotta Live Forever… ‘Kay? Here is what it said:

 

The letter to his late great dog was entitled “You Gotta Live Forever… ‘Kay?.” And the message reads as follows:

“Dear Jessie,

 

When I first adopted you, I whispered to you “You gotta live forever, ‘kay?” Over the years when I would imagine life without you, I would say again to you “You gotta live forever, ‘kay?”

 

My body still wants to take you for a walk. Your leash still hangs by the door waiting for the words “wanna go outside?” It’s been raining a lot this week and I instinctively look at the clock to see if it’s near time to take you out.

 

Whenever I eat some crackers or chips, I look to see where you are so I can throw you some.

 

You were the perfect dog for me. So quiet…so calm. You never peed or chewed on anything. You barked so infrequently that you would scare yourself when you did.

 

You were with me through all the good times and the bad. You never judged me, even when I weighed 200 lbs. and was sweating to the oldies. You always had a wag of the tail for me.

 

I loved how I could always trust you with any child. When you got older and a little more grey in the face, some of the neighbor kids started calling you Granny.

 

Even when you could no longer chew the hard kibble and you weren’t so interested in your toys, and had to be walked more often, I loved you so much.

 

You trusted me right up to the end. You believed me when I told you that you didn’t have to live forever and it’s OK to go.

I felt the life leave your body and you took a piece of me with you.

 

I love you sweet Jessie girl, and I’ll see you at the bridge. 1998 – 2016″

The bridge Kris was most likely referring to, from an anonymous poem…
