Indiana got his wings last night. One day we will be together again my sweet angel♥

It is with great sadness that we had to say goodbye to our sweet boy last night.  With many tears I write this.  My heart is broken more than I thought possible. I feel like I have lost my very best friend, my boy, who was everything to me and then some. Nobody on this earth has ever loved me like Indy did. He used to look at me with such love in his eyes. Every time I glanced over at him his beautiful brown eyes were on his mommy who he loved so much. I felt his love like no other love. We were always very close, we are soul mates.  Just when I thought I couldn’t get any closer ~ we did ~as he became a Tripawd.  Since he lost his front left limb, I used to be able to sit right up against his left side and he would cuddle his head right under my arm for the closet hug in the world. I cherish every one of those Indy kisses!

The rest of the pictures you see below were taken yesterday as Indy enjoyed his day with his mommy right by his side) 

At a later time I will write more details about how I knew it was time to let him go.  The past 6 weeks Indy has given us a few scares and certainly has had some ups & downs. But he has had many good days and the past 10 days were amazing – like everything was going to be ok. Even yesterday morning, before my yoga class, we were out for hours sitting on the deck, relaxing. I brushed him out & got many Indy kisses.  On my way home I bought yet another toy and I filmed me giving it to him as he played with it & talked to me ~ saying “I love you”. I took a few more pictures, not knowing they were the last (of 100’s and 100’s!) I just wanted to hold on to every moment and embrace his love. Taking many pictures and videos will give me the chance to visit with him each and every day as I carry him in my heart.

I have been so very lucky that I am a Justice of the Peace and also have a very part time job as an administrator. This has given me so much time to spend with my Indy – especially during the past 17 months. I will cherish every breathe he took and pray he visits me in my dreams. And one day…I will be with him again forever….

Indiana is now with the angels running free with all of his friends… (And all of our loved ones that have passed before us).  He will always touch my soul with love and live on in all of our hearts forever♥

Today Indy would have beat the odds 17 months and that has been a miracle and the greatest gift ever.  He left for his eternal journey one week before his 10thbirthday. We will celebrate his life with so much love on Monday and always hold him close to our hearts. Thank you all so much for you love and prayers. I have met so many wonderful friends in this Tripawds family. I will be here for all of you…always… Indy kisses from heaven… ♥♥♥

  With much sadness and much love,

Indiana’s mom – Carol~

  8. Carol,
    Although I never met or spoke with you, I have followed Indy’s story here on Tripawds. It didnt take long to see that like myself, you were blessed to share your life with a special canine. As I have said before, when the right Dog, the right person, and the timing all come together, magic happens. Your eloquence with words effectively realayed how important the two of you were to each other.
    I am quite sure there are no words that can even begin to console your aching heart. Your blog made it clear that Indy touched many lives, and that is a source of pride for you. Please find some modicum of peace knowing that Indy’s story truly touched Me, and I suspect many more that you will ever be aware of.
    Indy has inspired me to tell the story of my best friend and tripaw, Jeb. As he gets older I know that if I lose him, I want his story to continue to touch people, Just as Indy has.
    Run free in your snowy paradise Indy, and Jeb and I will look you up when we arrive.

  9. oh carol, we are so very, very sorry to hear of indi’s passing. what a valiant, brave soul – he will always be an inspiration. blessings to you in this difficult time – love never ends.

    My deepest and most sincerest condolences to you.

  12. I’m so very sorry, Carol. I read your blog post yesterday and saw this today and was stunned. I am grateful that you were able to make the hard decision, because it was best for Indy. And one thing I know without a doubt is that you would absolutely do the best thing for him. Your love for your boy is so obvious, and I’m sure he would thank you for his life and his release if he could.


  13. Carol… my heart truly aches for you because I know without a doubt the great loss you have suffered. Our hearts are with you and we send prayers your way of peace during this most sorrowful time…

  14. Carol,
    I am so sorry too. I was hoping Indy would make his birthday, that there would be a miracle for you. I know he would have if he could. His gift for you really is your love for each other. That is precious and never ends. I cry for you, and hope that you will find comfort soon.

  15. My tears are falling non-stop….you made Indy everyones boy with your unconditional love for each other that you so freely shared. Indy fought as hard and long as he could due to his love for you but his poor body couldn’t keep up with his determined spirit. May you find comfort in knowing how much we all care.

  16. Carol, Our hearts are with you at this sad time and always.
    Since we are lucky to personally know you and Indy, we will hold happy memories of him with us. We are so glad you had the time with him that you did. He will be missed.

  17. Carol, we are sorry to be a little late on this. We are so sorry about Indy. He was so brave even in his last days. You would never even know anything was wrong from the pictures. He was definitely an inspiration the last several months.

  18. Thank you all for loving my Indy. He is the most amazing Siberian husky I have ever known. He touched so many lives and I have so many new friends because of him . The choices I made were for the love of Indy and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I will put a post soon to tell you about his last day. He looked, acted happy & never once suffered. That was his final gift. He kissed me right up to his last breath. I am so empty inside and at the same time he is warming my heart with all of his love. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here with your sweet & beautiful words…my tears of love will not stop…nor will my love for Indy…
    Indy kisses to all of you! Love from Indiana’s mom ~ Carol~
