Superstar Kerry Washington shared some sad news on Instagram. The actress posted that her beloved Shih Tzu-Yorkshire Terrier mix had “crossed over and transitioned into a world beyond this one.”

Kerry shared her love for Josie and how she transformed her world. “I didn’t grow up with a dog. I wasn’t aware of what this kind of love could look like or feel like. I didn’t understand how it would change me and transform my life,” she started her post. “To say that Josie was a member of our family doesn’t even come close. She was my fur baby companion girl. She was my partner. She went places with me and experienced things that no one else ever did or ever will. She was a witness to my life and to my journey and me to hers.”

Alongside photos of herself and Josie, she said, “My heart unfolded when I met her and she will always live in the very fabric of my being.”
“Last night Josie crossed over and transitioned into a world beyond this one. And a piece of my heart went with her,” she shared. “We were so deeply blessed to have her for as long as we did. She brought so much joy into our home and into our lives and into the lives of almost everyone she met. I’m so grateful that she chose us.”
