“I lost someone who gave me the most unconditional love. I lost someone who was always so happy to see me and patiently waited when I was too busy. I lost someone who knew when I was feeling terrible and went up to me to give me the warmest hugs and just sat there with me and my tears in silence,” she wrote in the caption.
“I lost my first baby boy who was always so gentle with Jude,” she added, saying that her pet dog “was supposed to grow old” with her son.
“When I moved out at 19, my home barely had anything and I would struggle from time to time learning to be independent. No furniture, an emotional mess… but I had you,” recalled Janella.
The local star expressed regret over how she wasn’t by her dog’s side during his last few breaths. “But I was told that you were smiling through the pain. You were a happy boy until the very end.”
“I will always hold on to the fact that you were the only pup I wanted from the litter and you were also the first one to run to me. You chose me and I chose you,” she mused.
“Thank you for sharing your life with me. ‘Til we meet again,” Janella continued.
