The text image began with Jamie stating she was “so moved by everyone’s stories about their pets!”
She wrote: “You guys have really uplifted my spirits in this time with each story you have shared.
“I don’t know how to say thank you enough!
“It really puts in perspective how you can feel alone in a situation, but truly not be when there are so many people on this earth who have went through something similar & can relate to the feelings & struggles!”
The post continued: “My husband is so devastated, but I’ve been reminding him that even if he didn’t throw the ball he still would have ran after the other dogs wanting to play & could have easily done it then.”

Jamie wrote that she shared all of the pet stories from her followers and “could tell in his eyes, the same uplifting feeling I felt by all of you, he was feeling it too!”
The wife added that the support from her followers has inspired her to make an Instagram account that follows Kona’s recovery journey.
She explained: “If anything you all have taught me yesterday is if I can make someone feel uplifted the same way you have done for us during this time. I’d really love to pay it forward and do it for someone else who may end up in a similar situation!”
The post concluded with Jamie asking her followers to leave their reactions to the new Instagram account in the comments section.

Kona later broke his leg while playing fetch with Leland.
The pup eventually had to have his leg amputated after his “radical nerve” was damaged, which “makes them move their paw when walking.”
Leland is currently reconnecting with Dog– whose real name is Duane Chapman- after the father had a falling out with his children after moving in with now ex-girlfriend Moon Angell months after his wife Beth died of cancer in June 2019.
