Daniel Bryan Posts Touching Tribute, Photo Gallery In Honor Of His Late Dog Josie


As noted, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella's dog "Josie" recently passed away.

In addition to the touching tribute that Brie posted, Bryan also posted one of his own via his official Instagram page a few days ago.

For those who missed it, Bryan posted the following statement in honor of his late buddy on Sunday:

"On Wednesday I posted a picture of Josie, happy and playful. Less than 18 hours after taking that picture, I was rushing her to the emergency vet, where she passed shortly thereafter. Our family is devastated. But in this grief, I try to focus on gratitude, because our sweet Josie gave me so much. To Bri and I, Josie was our first baby, and Josie turned us from a couple into a family. When I was going through a mental breakdown and no one else could get through to me, Josie held me together. Feeding her, walking her and playing with her gave me purpose, and her nurturing affection started healing my heart. When I got neck surgery and I was alone and afraid, I envisioned Josie sitting on my chest, as she would often do, licking my nose, and that gave me comfort and courage. Josie made me laugh when I was sad, nurtured me when I was hurting, and brought joy to my heart on a daily basis. Thank you Josie, for the joy you brought our family. Thank you Josie, for loving me the way that you did when I needed it most. We miss you deeply. We love you deeply. Always."

Much like Brie Bella did, Daniel Bryan also included a full photo gallery of his favorite pictures and memories with his late dog Josie, which you can check out below.
