Tim’s emotional reaction to the process is stirring.
“It made sense when I just got drafted by the Broncos. We’ve always liked the name, we always liked that truck, so we talked about it and we were like, yeah, that’s really cool.”
“One of the toughest goodbyes. Wanted to make a special tribute to the sweetest boy ever — thank you for all the joy you brought and all the memories.”
Tim also shared his touching tribute to Bronco on Twitter, capturing his friend as he neared the end of his life, his breathing labored.
“For so many people, [dogs] are our best friends and they provide so much joy and love.”
Tim’s fans reached out to him through social media, expressing their sympathies to the pro-athlete. Grandma Linda Mossy posted on his Instagram thread that “my heart breaks for you.”
“Nothing but the Lord can ease the pain over time. Been there myself. Remember all the good times with your boy Bronco. God is your strength in this time of suffering.”
A fellow dog owner using the Instagram handle of Bently from the Burbs commented as to how emotional the video was.
“Our hearts ache for you and Bronco! So deeply sorry for your loss! Sending lots of love and pawsitive thoughts your way!”
Tim buried his beloved dog in a meaningful place and can be seen kneeling in sorrow at his gravesite marked with a makeshift cross from two sticks in another Instagram post.
“I’m so thankful and humbled by everyone’s support, prayers and love. I was able to lay Bronco to rest in a really special place. Thank you all for so much encouragement. I love you Bronco, thanks for being the sweetest boy.”
Many fans continue to pour out their condolences to Tim during his time of sorrow. We, too, understand the painful loss of a pet and express our sympathies to Tim.
