  1. So sorry for your loss, I can't imagine going through that. I always wanted to foster or adopt a senior dog but the shelters where I live are very strict about your living conditions, most require a fully fenced in back yard and I live in an apartment. Hope you feel better and get to foster another pup! <3 <3

  2. Aww im so sorry jazzy that you had to go through that.. you are an angel and now you have another angel watching over you from up above💕 my heart aches for you. Lovve you and take care❣️

  3. Just had to let go of my fur baby last weekend- he was 18 and had been with my family since he was 6 weeks old. Totally get how you must be feeling right now :/
    Maybe he and Herman will become friends up there.💜

  4. Oh jazz, my heart broke into a million pieces 😔 It is so, so sad, but the silver lining is that you did give him his best life while you could. And he loves you so much still and is watching down on you and prince. ❤️ I just want to hug my own fluffer so hard rn but cuddles are apparently not on the agenda (it's tough when you have a full day of begging for every scrap of edible—and inedible for that matter–items around and trying to catch the birds that can, you know, fly. 😩😂😭). But Chewie (my floofer) and I are both sending you so much love and positive vibes. 💕

  5. Oh no condolences about Herman. My dog of 15 years passed back in July and I was a wreck for almost 2 months, I know your pain.

  6. I am so so so sorry to hear about Herman. I took in a senior dog when he was 11 and I worry sometimes. 🙁 I was balling throughout the entire end of the video. RIP Herman ❤️

  7. You're amazing. You provided Herman with the best life during the last part of his life. You are so full of love and it doesn't go unnoticed.

  8. DAMN I DIDN'T WANT TO CRY. This broke my heart, but Herm is in a wonderful place now. ❤️❤️❤️ Love you Jaz❤️❤️

  9. So so sorry for your loss❤️ I lost my dog to cancer a couple years ago. My family had to make that same decision & it’s really the hardest but better for them to end the suffering. You’re such a good person for adopting him! Love you, you’re so strong❤️❤️❤️

  10. I appreciate that even though it was hard you shared Herman's story. It was a powerful change in his life to be with you and you are so strong and loving.

  11. Girl my heart is breaking for you. We had to put our old girl down a couple years ago. She was 13 and had suffered from diabetes for the last 2 years of her life. The last couple days she was with us she was having seizures and was trying to crawl behind our tv stand. It's so hard making the decision to put a fur baby to sleep. Ultimately you know it's the best for them but it hurts so much.
    Lots of hugs to you!

  12. OMFGGGGG I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH LULU PACKAGES. I ordered 2 leggings and I never freaking received them. So I called lulu corporate they told me they were going to do an “investigation” with ups. Long story short they never found them so I got my money back. I literally know how u feel. But yea for sure they’ll return your money back.

  13. Awee Jazz.. I hope you the best and you’re so amazing for continuing to do as much as you can to help the puppies❤️ I feel like I still haven’t moved on as much from one of my losses in my puppies but they’re amazing and you are too!

  14. You had me crying with you! You are a great dog momma and Herman got to have such an amazing last 5 months because of you! <3

  15. Losing a dog must be really hard. I have two and They are my life. I can imagine how hard it will be when the time comes. Im sorry jaz 😢 youre so strong and im so happy that youre fostering!! ♥️♥️

  16. Sending you my love ❤️❤️ In March, we found out that my pup (he was 11 years old, not an actual puppy), had prostate cancer that spread to his bladder. Then in April, he had a bad weekend and we thought that he would have to be put to sleep. Luckily it was just a bad weekend. Then in December over the span of a week you could tell that he just wasn’t himself and his health slowly started to decline. The vet had the conversation with us about it being time; and it was really hard to make the decision, because what if it was just a rough couple of days like it was in April. I know how heart breaking it is and it does get easier, but I also have days that I feel absolutely heart broken all over again. I hope my little Buster & your Herman are playing in doggy heaven. ❤️🐶❤️🐶

  17. Extending deepest sympathy for you in your loss. I pray that GOD comforts you with love and that peace comes to you. You are doing good with your fitness journey. You need to eat. Don't fall back into your eating disorder. GOD has already shown you your strength in your darkest hour. Although words can't really help to ease the loss you bare, loving memories of Herman and comfort from loved ones will help you smile again. Sending peace, love, and blessings to you. 💕💕💕💕💕

  18. Sending so much love and healing to you and Prince. I had a senior dog have a seizure and go thru this a few years back. I had a younger dog that had bonded with him and it was so hard for her. Dogs are pack animals and I knew I needed to find another friend for her. Watching this video Prince was searching for something during your talk about Herman. Prince needs another friend, he is good with seniors, and Herman would want you to save another! XO

  19. So sorry about Herman. You definitely did the right thing, at every step. He was so happy with you and Prince 💕💕

  20. I am so sorry for your loss. You are a wonderful person with such a good heart. It’s really inspiring. You did great with Herman and you gave him so much love for the last five months. I can’t even imagine your pain right now, but we know Herman is at a beautiful place now and it’s better than him having pain. Love you and feel better❤️🤗

  21. Oh jasmine, my heart broke for you when you talked about Herman. It’s so, so sad that he’s gone, but he’s in a better place. I truly believe that. You gave him a wonderful end to his life and I’m sure he is so thankful for that. ❤️

  22. Oh, sweet girl, I am so sorry for your loss. 🙁 You have such a huge heart and the love you gave to Herman, and that he gave in return, has forever changed you, in the best possible ways. Thank you for sharing your journey together. Much love <3

  23. All those puppies were so cute. I hope people adopt them there. I love seeing you and Ashley! I'm so excited for Ashley's transformation and with you by her side, its gonna be bomb!

  24. Literally had to stop watching when you talked about Hermon, thinking of you sweetie! I had to put my baby down at the beginning of the year because the diabetes just started shutting down her system. It was so painful, but I knew it was the right choice.

  25. Herman will be in puppy heaven. You did your job helping another living being in our world. I hope people adopt more if they are able to or foster animals. It does help a lot.

  26. We love you, Jazmine! You did what you could for Herman and he had such a beautiful life with you. Take all the time you need to heal.

  27. I think it’s amazing looking after senior dogs as most people would rather have a puppy. He is loved and had a much better quality of life so there’s nothing more you can do and you should be proud ❤️

  28. i went through about the same situation with my dog❤️ we had to put him down because we couldnt let him be in pain anymore. RIP doggy🐶 youll meet your doggy @ the rainbow in heaven❤️ love you jaz

  29. You gave him some of the best 5 months of his entire life. I’m so sorry that your heart is breaking right now, I can’t imagine. 💔

  30. oh my goodness <3 you have such a heart for animals! I was at Petsmart the other day and saw these older dogs, ranging from 5-11, up for adoption, and my heart just DROPPED. I started bawling in the store just heart broken that people would give up these precious babies, especially when they're older. Simply because lots of people won't adopt an older puppy… They deserve all the love in the world. The next dog we get we will adopt for sure. You gave him a wonderful life and are such a sweet soul!

  31. RIP Herm, I have worked at a animal hospital for 2 years now and I love my job but euthanasia's are something you just never get used to my heart always breaks when someone loses a fur baby. Im so sorry for your loss.

  32. Sitting here crying because I feel your pain. My dog got diagnosed with a tumor a couple of days ago and its unoperatable (is that even a word? ) so his days are counted from now on… I am spending as much time as I can with him and am dreading the day that we will have to put him to sleep… My thoughts and prayers are with you and Herman! <3

  33. I'm sobbing. Jazmine, old man Herman was so lucky to have you during his last months. It takes people like you who are willing to potentially sacrifice their emotions to better the life of an animal in need. It's a selfless act of love. It's not easy, but animals like Herman need you. ❤️

  34. Oh boy Jaz! I told my self I wasn't going to cry….and her I am crying in my cubicle. You did an amazing thing for Herman, it is truly inspiring. hugs

  35. Herman was so lucky to have you even if it was just for 5 months. That's 5 months of love, tail wags, and treats that he wouldn't have gotten if it weren't for you. I had to put my baby down about a year and a half ago and I still miss him everyday. You're a great dog mom and lots of pups are going to be lucky to have you as their foster dog mom! You are amazing

  36. Jazmine….there’s nothing anyone can say about you except to say that you are positively the coolest funniest gal. I just love you! You’re really and truly awesome! ❤️💕❤️

  37. Jazmine I feel so awful not realizing I commented before seeing all of the video. Bless you for having such a big heart for those so helpless and in need. It’s very sad news to hear about Hernan. How terrible you both went through a very stressful end. Hugs to you and sending my support! 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻

  38. Thank you for having the strength to talk about Herman 💕 we had to put my dog Roxy down two days ago and me family and I have been having a really hard time. It was the same with Roxy she was doing okay and then like 4 days ago she just went downhill so fast and it turns out her liver failed. I feel so guilty because I wasn’t able to say goodbye to her because I’m in physical therapy school but I’m trying to hang on to the idea that I was able to spend a great 12 Years with her. I thought it was stupid of me to be as upset as I am I was crying in class yesterday and I’ve just been crying so much and really upset but hearing you talk makes me feel so much better so again thank you 💕 I’m sure Roxy and Herman are running around having fun in doggy heaven right now

  39. Thank you so much for giving that sweet boy the best 5 months of his life. He's safe and running fast and eating In-N-Out burgrs at the rainbow bridge! ❤😭🌈

  40. girl i feel you loosing a dog is awful i lost my baby 3 and a half years ago it was so hard he had cancer everywhere and i spoiled him till he had to go. I had a half hour to say goodbye and I held him. I know you didn't have him long but no matter long you have a dog its never easy. Your an angel for taking in a sick elder dog. I know you will keep doing goos with adopting and I am so happy there are still people like you doing everything they can to help a dog no matter the situation. Your a great person

  41. You gave him the best 5 months of his life. .. your an amazing mommy ❤ and I totally believe he is restored to his healthy body running around with all other fur kids that have passed on .

  42. Oh my goodness this is so sad. You obviously gave him an amazing life. So sorry for your loss, but good on you mama for doing what you did and trying to do it for another dog. I think you should be a foster mom for a child. You're amazing.

  43. You are such a wonderful human being and have a beautiful heart. It takes a special person to do what you did with Herman. He was a lucky boy. You changed his life for the better. Love you girl.❤️🐾

  44. Awesome Video. My respects! Sorry to here about Herman, I have a shih tzu named Emma and made me think of the day she might die…so sad 🙁

  45. Thank you for fostering & putting this in the public eye. I wish more people did do good things using a platform. I foster & volunteer at a kill shelter so you get major respect from me.
    Thank you. Im so sorry for your loss & hardships. ❤️

    JAZ you are so strong and you have the sweetest heart! 
    Besitos hermosa te cuidas ese corazón tuyo!! <3

  47. Awww I loved Herman, my dog is a senior so I feel you. I know soon my dogs time will come as well I just hope I’m strong enough I have had her for 12 years and she is also a Maltese 💕💕💕 hope you and prince are feeling better

  48. Herman ❤️ Sorry for your loss lovely!
    I lost my family cat of 18 years last month. He was doing okay then all of a sudden he was dying. It was crazy & happened so fast.
    He’s not in pain anymore.. same as Herman 💞

  49. I'm so sorry about Herman darling… at least you gave him a shelter, love and happiness at the end of his life, he must have gone in peace thanks to you, you're a great person Jaz <3

  50. You’re doing the most awesome thing with your time and money. Its a huuuuge thing to invest your energy and feelings the way you did,and its not something many people are capable of doing. I have so much respect for what you’re doing.

  51. And now I’m crying. I’m so sorry for your loss, I’m sure he’s in doggy heaven running around happy as can be. You were the best dog Mom during his last few months! ❤️❤️❤️

  52. Jazmine you are absolutely amazing. My fiancé and I have been looking into fostering a fur baby for some time. We have a 4 month old ShihTzu puppy now and I can not imagine going through what you did &a to still stay so positive and strong. What a full heart you have girl friend 💕💕 I hope that life starts to look up even more for you & good luck fostering more babies!

  53. I'm so sorry for your loss, I went through the same thing Jan 10th last year… sending hugs 🤗 there are no words to make it better, I'm so sorry ❤️

  54. I’m so sorry for your loss. Herman was amazing I loved him so much and you were such a good mom to him. I know how hard it is but you honestly gave him an amazing life even if it was just for 5 months. You still had a huge impact on his life. And I know Herman is in heaven looking over you🐶 thank you for sharing and having such a beautiful soul💕

  55. Also, people need to give shelter dogs more chances especially senior ones! I mean Herman was a gem. He’s was so handsome and sweet. He just reminded me of someone with the most amazing little personality. You will forever be in our hearts Herman🐶
