    Ancient Jake was the name we gave him years ago when he was simply old. Old buddy crossed the bridge today at our most conservative guess, eighteen. We got Jake at the shelter ten years ago when he was almost eight and nobody wanted anything other than puppies. What was left of his tail looked like it had been put in a dull pencil sharpener and he possessed a set of ribs that had more healed fractures than than Evel Knieval. Took a year or so to warm up to us but took a real liking to watching BBC mysteries. Wonderful dog. HH 10628743_10204884644583740_8319134727602788286_o.jpg jake miss marple.jpg

    I am sorry. My condolences Hollow Head. It sucks loosing an old friend. And when that friend is a loyal pet it seems to suck twice as much.

    Is it to soon to ask? Will you be getting another? Life alone leaves an awful lot to be desired. Or at least that is my belief.

    Deepest condolences. Sounds like you saved him from a bad place and gave him a great life. He'll be waiting in good company for you, and in the meantime the remaining critters will keep you company and help to ease his passing.

    Sorry for your loss. They bring us a lot of joy, so sad they are with us for a short time. One of my neighbors died and they were going to put her old blind and deaf old dog down. The next door lady said no and they took the dog in, what a great gesture.
