Our sweet Josie is gone. She passed away last night. Of all our Great Pyrenees, she was the sweetest and most gentle. When my grandson, Michael, who has Downs Syndrome, was afraid of dogs, it was Josie who taught him to trust. I will always remember walking with Michael and with Josie on the lead in front of our house.В She seemed to sense when someone was fragile.
Josie was one of the “GrandPyrs”. The grand dog of four of our original Great Pyrenees. She was a tender Mother to her puppies and guardian for our lambs. I am thankful that she lived with us on Milk and Honey Farm and fulfilled her role as guardian and friend. She will rest in the pasture behind the house with the rest of our good dogs who have left us. She will meet Boomer, Honey Bear, Molly, Baron, Ginger, Kodi, Shiloh, and Bella. My heart hurts and tears will come.
