Theo Rossi has written a special tribute to his dogs, which he recently had to put down.
In an Instagram post, Rossi — best known for playing Juice on “Sons of Anarchy” — asked fans to say a prayer for Benny and Sasha, who crossed over that rainbow bridge.
“Please say a SPECIAL PRAYER in your Heart and Float it to the wind as OUR two oldest dogs
(nearly 15 & 16!)
head off to that Rainbow Bridge.”
“That way they can ride off on a wave of LOVE and LIGHT.”
Rossi, who shared the two dogs with wife Meghan McDermott, called Benny and Sasha their guardian angels.
“Benny & @_sillysasha were truly @meggomcrossi and I’s guardian ANGELS.”
“They have been with US individually and as a unit through everything. They’ve been there for all the UP’s, and more importantly, all the DOWNS.”
“They felt our feelings, saved OUR lives and have been everywhere with us. Right by OUR sides, knowing WE had each other’s backs till the end.”
“WE are so lucky and honored that they rescued us so many years ago.”
Rossi also wanted to write a message to others who have had to say goodbye to a beloved pet.
“For all of you who have felt this type of love and loss with a companion, I hope my two are running in a beautiful field with yours when they cross the Bridge.
“For all of you who haven’t,
I hope one day you get
to feel the power & overflowing LOVE that comes with being
surrounded by the
innocence & purity of
Dogs or any animal
who lets you share
their LIFE if even for a moment.”
“As a pack we have fought so hard on the daily to extend OUR time together as long as possible, but NOW we must listen to them.
They’re ready, which means WE must accept that.”
Rossi wrapped up his heartfelt tribute with a message of hope, and a reminder that life is short:
“As hard as that is for OUR souls to take.”
“As a fighter it’s hard for me to ever stop.”
“But this isn’t about me.
They are READY.
So I must BE.”
“In my mind, GOD did not create humans in her image, she created DOGS.It’s been in the letters the whole time. Just reverse the name.”
“OUR journey here together is a blink.
Love ONE another.”
“LIVE, LOVE & ALWAYS BE THE EXAMPLE.”
