Good night JayDee - we loved you so much

Today we had to send our beloved JayDee (John's Dog) off to the Bridge.

He had a tumor on his heart that was causing fluid to build up around it and was really having difficulty breathing.

Jay was a grand old man that we adopted from this board. He was originally down in SC and the good folks from Noble GSD rescue helped get him up here to us. When he first arrived he was in pretty bad shape and everyone thought that he would only live a couple of months. We took him on as a "hospice" dog and vowed to make what little time he had left extra special for him.

Jay had other plans. He lived with us a just a little over three years. His first love was my partner, John, and he would have followed John to the end of the Earth. John's heart is broken over losing his buddy.

Jay never met a stranger and loved everyone he met. I remember during our last vacation, he plopped himself down, right in a guy's lap who was sitting on the beach. The guy was a dog lover so he really enjoyed Jay's attention.

We will miss this big gentle lug so much. He could have been a doggie diplomat for the German Shepherd breed.

Jay, you were such a goooood boy, and we loved you so very much. You have taken a huge piece of our hearts along with you. God Speed to the Bridge and please tell Josey, DejaVu, Trooper, Moochie and Kukala that we still miss them very much too.

Your very sad, sad, Mom,

Lea

Yours in GSDs and rescue,

Lea

So sorry for your loss. It must be a comfort to know he will have so many furry friends to play with on the other side of bridge while waiting.

Awwww, I'm so sorry for you and John... JD was a very special boy and I know you'll both miss him terribly. What a big hole they leave in our hearts...

Run free and healthy sweet boy...

Re: Good night JayDee - we loved you so much

OMG, I am so sorry Lea. I remember JD (John's Dog), how he broke out of the kennel and ran, I believe after Sinclair, when she left the shelter after the evaluation. I enjoyed reading his updates and the story of his recovery. It is amazing what these seniors can bring into our lives.

Run free sweet JayDee, you were loved by many, especially by mom and dad.

Re: Good night JayDee - we loved you so much

Oh noooooooooooooo!!! I saw the title and thought no, not Remo's JD!

Lea, I can't thank you enough for taking him in and loving him and giving him the best life any dog could have ever hoped for! He was such a special boy, that was evident from the first moment I saw him. He had my husband wrapped around his finger immediately too. I was just talking about him to our vet the other day b/c of what a turn around he made and how looks in the shelter can be so deceiving!

Please post more pics of him when you have a chance so everyone can see what a beautiful boy he was!!

I am so sorry for yours and John's loss.
