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,
Yours in GSDs and rescue,
Good Dogs for Good Homes
