My handsome man Joshua

Joshua was my baby boy. He just passed away about a month ago and I adopted him from the SPCA about 6 years ago. I was having a hard time in my life that ended about 4 months ago. Joshua helped me through everything. That’s why I really think he was my guardian angel.
We got him from the SPCA and at the time the vet thought he was at least 12. We never thought he would live as long as he did. I became quickly attached to him and all of my friends called him handsome man because that was one of the nicknames I used for him.
I loved him so much and almost everything I do reminds me of him. I keep his collar with his id tag on my backpack so I can have a piece of him with me at school every day. I also have pictures that I keep in my purse. I miss him so much that I have to distract myself from thinking about him or I will just start crying.
He was so old that everyone kept telling me that his time was going to come eventually. I couldn’t even stand the thought of not having him. I’m gonna stop talking about his death now and just talk about what he was like.
His favorite thing was French fries. I know that people food's not good for dogs, but he would always go crazy for French fries. He also loved our other dog rosy. It was funny because he was a little Jack Russell Terrier, about 10 pounds, and rosy is an overweight black lab/cocker spaniel that weighs about 60 or 70 pounds. He loved her anyway, we always said that rosy was his wife. My mom and I also always said “I want a husband like Joshua” because of how much he adored Rosy.
That’s all I have to say about Joshua right now, I just needed to get this out because I am very upset about this tonight. Thanks for reading :)
