Jake, Forever in Our Hearts

Jake 6-8-98 / 5-3-09

Moment by moment I sat here trying with all my might to stop that enemy called time. This is the moment that I have feared. Then one day as I noticed the grey on your muzzle and realized that time had been marching on and our moments together were too precious and not to be wasted. Today that fear became a reality.

You came into our life at 7.5 months old. Little did we know the impact you would have on our hearts.

You became a great obedience competitor and you and daddy made an excellent team. You enjoyed traveling with daddy and the bond the two of you had was remarkable.

You changed tears to smiles for all the residents in the nursing facility you visited on a weekly basis doing what you did best, a dedicated K9 Therapy Dog, who took his job very seriously, and knew your job well.

You helped the many children at the Libraries during the Reading to Rover program, sitting, and listening to the children read to you, helping them gain the confidence they needed.

You were daddy’s Demonstration Dog, at all of our public obedience demonstrations, and people would come and crowd all around you waiting to pet you and shake your paw.

You were also daddy’s demo dog at our training classes, and you would always make daddy proud, being on your best behavior, while our students would watch you with amazement, and tell daddy they wanted their dogs to be just like you.

I have been blessed to witness the love you and daddy have shared. The bond that connects your inner souls. The way your eyes light up when daddy comes through the door every evening, and trotting to him in the gallopy horse fashion that you have.

You have been my guardian, my protector, my confidant, my inner strength, my best friend. You have been my hero, and have come to my rescue on more then one occasion.

I held on to you, to that moment; your last and my first with out you. I felt your last breath and still I held on. But time stops for no one.

We have had a wonderful journey together, You, Daddy and I. You have touched the hearts of all that have known you. I know you will continue to touch all who are waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge.

Princess needs you now; she has been waiting to be reunited with her very best friend.

Run free, big boy, you will be greatly missed, but our love will never die, you will always live on in our hearts.

I know it's hard Tammy, it's not fair and it sucks and nothing we can say will make it any easier except that we really do know how you feel.


RIP dear boy. I'm sorry.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My tears are stinging my cheeks as I remember the fresh pain that leaving causes. RIP sweet Jake and take care of Princess at the bridge...you can run free with my Frank and Pip.

What a wonderful example of all a GSD should be!

Thank you for sharing Jake with us! Big hugs to you and your family during this sad time...it is so unfair that they are not with us longer!
