Arrival Story:
I became the guardian of Jack after a Good Samaritan found him abandoned by his owners in the summer of 2012. Jack touched my heart in a way I never thought possible...Tia & Angel seemed to love him as well. Unbeknownst to us, Jack contracted Parvovirus just days later. After a week-long stay in the ICU of the emergency vet, he was sent home with medicine to see if there would be any progress in the home environment. Jack passed away that night, July 20th, in my arms with Tia and Angel showing their love as he left this world. I'm glad to say he's no longer suffering, and is playing with the other good doggies that have gone to Rainbow Bridge. I still miss him everyday.

Jack was found in Plano, TX after his owners left him (they moved) out in 100+ degree weather. He was without sufficient food and water for approximately 2 weeks before someone found him. Because of that and his weak immune system, he contracted Parvovirus and unfortunately passed away. I hope that the other dogs his former owners have/had did not suffer the same fate.

Jack's Life

Paranoid about Parvo...

I treated my house and yard for Parvo right after Jack passed away. However, bringing home Spawn in a few weeks has me a little paranoid about it happening again. I don't think I can handle another case of parvo. I've done what I needed to do, and it's been over a year...I am just really concerned about it.


Every time

Every time I hear of a puppy/dog getting Parvo, it breaks my heart to know someone is having to go through what I went through with a beloved pet.

Then again...

every time I hear of a puppy/dog that survives Parvo, I do get a little jealous because that person didn't have their heart broken...and their beloved pet is still around.

I always wonder what Jack would look like as an adult...what his temperament would be, his characteristics.

I hope he's having fun playing on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge.

August marks a year that Jack will have been gone from this Earth. I still miss him a lot, and have his pictures up on my fridge along with the card that the Veterinary Clinic sent after his passing. I will never forget his battle with parvo, and the night he passed away. Part of me wishes he was still here - I imagine what he'd look like, what his favorite toys would be, etc...however I am also glad he's no longer suffering. I know where he is, there's no pain & suffering, only happiness & peace.

Love you Jack-Jack...
