AEW is getting ready to put on Fyter Fest, but Brandi Rhodes has another matter on her mind. Her dog of 16 years Colby-Jack Tanner Runnels has passed away.
No cause of death was mentioned in Brandi Rhodes’s emotional announcement. She was quite candid as she spoke about her journey through life with Colby-Jack.
Rhodes revealed this sad announcement via Instagram today. Now she is on her way back home to say goodbye. This was a heartbreaking announcement as Rhodes shared everything that she and Colby-Jack had been through over the years.
Today is shaping up to me my worst on record. I’m flying back home to say goodbye to my oldest friend. My first child. Colby-Jack Tanner Runnels. For 16 years we have been inseparable. When I first saw you and took you home on that long car ride through the snow in Michigan…you continued to trust me from that moment on. Everyone thought you were too small, I was too young. You’d just be some pocket dog that I’d one day tire of. That never happened. You were never a pocket dog. You were a family member with the best personality and you were my utmost priority throughout all stages of my life. You were with me from Michigan to Florida to Texas to California and finally, to Georgia. You helped me become an adult. And I would never leave you behind. When I didn’t have enough for you I found it. You never doubted me for one second and that unconditional love is what always got me through. We did this all together. I’m so glad you stayed around as long as you did. You allowed me the pleasure and joy of being your mom. You allowed me to grow into the woman I am today and you showed me the best human and dog bond possible. I love you Colby. We will always be together because I’ll hold you in my heart. Rest well my sweet.
Our thoughts are with Brandi Rhodes during this sad time. It had to hit Cody Rhodes as well, but it was not noted that he is flying back home. Cody has Fyter Fest matters to attend to today.
Colby-Jack and Brandi Rhodes shared a lot of memories through 16 great years. Those memories will never go away. RIP Colby-Jack.
