From the moment we saw you in the litter, we fell in love with you. The one puppy in the litter who was lazily sleeping while your brothers & sisters were running around playing. But we knew that you were the one. Your beautiful white coat made you shine. Elise picked you up and you slept in her lap like a baby. |
You grew into our family instantly. I never thought I could love something as precious as my big beautiful Jakey. You were like a big white bear rug every where you laid. You sometimes liked to fetch things but sometimes forgot to return it to us. I remember how you loved laying on the stair steps in the house or on the bare foyer floor because it was so cool. I remember hiding from you and you would whimper and bark cause you couldn't find me. You'd go crazy looking for me and when you did, you'd be so happy. When we took you out, you'd sometimes like to take off and run. But no matter how much you ran from us, we'd eventually find you. I remember your 1st birthday, we got you a yummy B-day cake and you loved it. Especially the doggy biscuits. Sometimes I'd find your big furry self on my bed which is a no-no but you looked so precious just laying there. You loved when we scratched your back side then you'd show your craziness walking between our legs. You'd cover our clothes with all that white fur of yours. That's ok because we knew how happy you were to see us. When we saw the movie Marley and Me, all I thought about was you. I hate the ending because I thought that would never happen with my Jake. That movie will always remind me of you.
10 years had gone by so fast and I was hoping you would live the remainder of your precious life at home with us. Even though it hurt us so much to let you go, we know you are in a much happier place. It was a beautiful sunny day and when you closed your eyes for the last time here we know when you opened them, that beautiful Rainbow Bridge was there waiting for you. It will be ok my big guy. When you get there, go and run free. Be happy. Don't worry about us. We will be ok. We will never stop thinking of you. We will keep that part of you close to us. I love & will miss you always my Jakey.
