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!
