Jack liked playing in the yard the most
He did not like getting a bath
Jack loved this rope toy we got him
He didn't have a favorite food
In the field behind our house
Jack learned how to sit within a day or two of his arrival
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.
Live like there's no tomorrow

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...

This isn't necessarily about Jack...or another dog. My best friend's baby unexpectedly passed away yesterday afternoon. My friend's wife was in a tremendous amount of pain & hadn't felt the baby kick for a day so she went into the hospital. They had to do an emergency c-section and the baby was stillborn. The placenta had detached from the baby, cutting off his blood-flow. Alex was to be born on January 29th, 2013 and has an older brother named Toby.
I know in my heart of hearts that my Jack is up in Heaven giving this little baby a lot of love & kisses & watching over him for my friend.
Please keep the Brown/Moore family in your thoughts and prayers.

Although it has gotten easier to accept Jack's untimely death, I still want to cry when thinking too much about it. Recently, Tia and Angel had been acting out their own depression by not eating so I had been more concerned about them than myself. I gained over 10lbs since Jackie died! Thinking of what he would have looked like when he got older, how he would have loved this or that, how I wish I could have done more. Honestly, I do know that I did everything I could for Jack...exhausting ALL resources until there was nothing left to give. I still think it wasn't fair...that he shouldn't have had to die like that. I sometimes wonder if I made the right decision by keeping him in the ICU like that, or if I should have let him go sooner. Sometimes I feel guilty for dragging out the process. If he'd gotten started on his puppy shots right off the bat there's a possibility this could have been avoided, ya know? His former owners didn't take responsibility, and it's unrealistic to think I should have done something before when I didn't know Jack needed me...or else I would have found him a lot sooner than I did. I believe I found him for a reason...he needed someone to take responsibility of him and that's what I did. But still, it feels like more should have/could have been done...I just don't know what. It breaks my heart knowing of the pain & suffering little Jack endured thanks to the parvo. It makes me sick knowing his former owners got away with abandoning a puppy, and not knowing how the other two dogs are/were being treated. If I could have saved them, I would have. As it was, the owners did take them along. Jack's situation was unfortunate to the end, with the exception that myself, Angel, and Tia were there to show him the love he needed all along. It is somewhat comforting to know that he had a soft bed to sleep on, blankets to cuddle under, food to eat and water to drink until the day he died.
But still, I can't help but feel sadness.
