Default Jonah, RIP 1-14-2013

I had to put Jonah down yesterday. Hardest decision of my life. Some of you who have been following him over the years can learn more here. I will miss him but I know he's out of pain now. Sweet Jonah...

"Jonah is gone. I had to hold him tight so he wouldn't struggle. He died in my arms with my face right on his forehead and on the top of his nose. I rubbed him and shhh him while he became weak and lost consciousness in my arms. And then he died right there as I was holding him. I didn't let go for 30 minutes. I just laid on the floor with him and kept shhhh and kissing his forehead and telling him he's no longer in pain. My man is finally at rest. Finally"
