    It is with a very heavy heart that I am writing this post. Yesterday we had to make the selfless decision to let our baby boy be pain and illness free. He started showing pain again and rather than adjust his medications only to go through this again weeks/months down the road which wouldn't be fair to him. There is an empty hole in my heart and the house feels so empty without the big guy. The cat is mourning the loss with us. He went through so much in his 7 years, a lot of illness and vet visits. Also he gave a lot of joy and healing by being a therapy dog. He touched so many people and to know him was to love him. One day we may think about getting another dog, but it won't be for a long time and no other dog will be the same as Jake.
    Run free my baby boy!

    I‘m very sorry for your loss. At the same time, I admire you for doing what was best for him. Despite the illnesses, I‘m sure he had a wonderful life.

    My heart is breaking for your loss. Letting them go is the hardest thing in the world even if it is the most compassionate thing. I am sending your family all of the virtual hugs from my pack. <3 <3

    I was on my way to bed and thought I had better check in. I had a feeling, and I had brushed it aside for days...something gnawing at me that one of ours was leaving us. I should have given into the feeling earlier so that I could send you my love and comfort you. This was expected, but sincerely not wanted by any of us. Beautiful Jake....My heart is howling for him and for you. I lift you up to Him who heals all hearts, and I entrust Jake into His keeping. When your day comes, may you wake to see him running to meet you and welcome you to that pain free place beyond the Rainbow Bridge.

    I mourn with you and yours,

    Elizabeth

    Thank you all so much for your sentiments. The pain and emptiness is unbearable at times, but knowing he's no longer sick and in pain is a comfort. I said to my husband yesterday that I want a puppy, I know it won't be for a while, but we did start looking at breeders websites last night. When we are ready we will get another mastiff breed. Jake will always have a special place in my heart and no dog will replace him.
