Our Beloved Jake

Yesterday we said goodbye to our second born and fur-baby Jake, after he (unknowingly) fought a valiant battle against spleen cancer. Mr. Howard was there with him and held him in his arms as he left us. We were so thankful that Connor was able to give him lots of kisses and that Jake was able to get a burst of energy when we came in. His tail was wagging like crazy.

Jake was giving everyone lots of kisses

 He has been with Mr. Howard and me since we moved up to Northern California, before we had any children of our own. He came to us because the family that had him was having another baby and they were worried about having multiple dogs with multiple children. Jake has always done really well with all our kids and while he also drove us bonkers at times, he was so loved. SO LOVED. And not just loved by us - but loved by our neighbors, my parents, Mr. Howard's parents and all our friends.

We cannot imagine how our life is going to be without him, but we feel wonderfully relieved that he is healthy and running in Heaven. Right now, our concern is Harley (our other dog) who has spent the last 6 years by his side. We were very lucky to have spent as long as we did with him.

So sorry to hear you lost one of your fur-babies! We have two that are getting up there in age. It will be a very sad day for us and the kids when they are gone!

So sorry to hear you lost a sweet furbaby. :( I can't imagine how hard it would be after so many years together, but I'm so happy he's not suffering anymore. Sending lots of internet hugs your way, mama. :)
