Arrival Story:
We went to look at Dobie puppies on a Sunday afternoon. The people who had the litter had both parents on site. They clearly took care of and loved the dogs, but their yard was filthy!!! The dog areas were clean, but the rest of the place was a pit. I was torn because how could they be such slobs and care for puppies properly? Long story short, we decided since the dogs were all in the clean areas and seemed healthy we would adopt one of them. The breeders assured us that we could bring him back if there were any health problems or if we just couldn't handle it. Well, we went to the vet the next day and all was fine. A healthy, happy boy!

Jarvis is a lanky boy. He is about 2" taller than the breed standard. We didn't get him to show or breed. He's our family and we love him just how he is!

It's been almost six months since Jarvis left us. I still think about him every day. The crushing sadness did end and my heart has healed. Mostly.

I got teary the other day while I had Diablo at the vet. I still give his box of ashes a kiss every now and then. His beloved flashy ball and cancer collar that Ella gave him are on the shelf with his ashes. Those things make me smile. Sometimes I accidentally call Diablo Jarvis. Sometimes our friends do too. It's okay. It just means we haven't forgotten him. I haven't really been able to look at his Dogster page much. Today was the first day in months that I re-read his diary. It's more of a comforting sadness now than the sheer anguish I had at first. I have all my friends to thank for that comfort...

I will always love you Jarvis. You will forever be my special boy...

This is an exceedingly sad time and I'm not really sure what to say.

As most of you know, Jarvis made his trip to The Bridge yesterday. The cancer most likely spread to his liver or spleen or both. They were both enlarged and he was extremely anemic. He had been going downhill for the past two weeks - not eating much, had to bring him water while he was laying on the couch, stopped playing, going outdoors was a challenge. He had no energy, almost like he was depressed. I really didn't want to hear what I knew the vet was going to tell me so I kept him home, took care of him, made him eggs, and loved on him as much as possible. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore and took him to the vet. He jumped right in the car like always. Then I suddenly knew just how bad it was. He usually gets in the car and goes straight to the backseat. He got in yesterday and just laid across the front seat. He wouldn't budge. I had to lift his hind end up and put him in the passenger side so I could drive. He wouldn't get out once we got to the vet. Two of the vet techs had to come and lift him out of the car. When he got in the exam room, he just kind of fell. The vet examined him and we decided together that he just wasn't going to improve. The vet said I could bring him home for the day so the kids and my husband could say goodbye. I called Ron (husband) at work and we decided that bringing him home was being too selfish. I couldn't bear to see Jarvis stuck in the car like that or to fall down again. We decided that it was time to say goodbye and give him peace. I stayed with him the whole time, looking in his eyes and telling him how much we love him while he got the shot. It was very peaceful. I'm so glad I was with him when he went.

I know that we did the right thing for him. I know that he had a good, happy, and loving life. He brought so much joy to our family and friends (everybody knew about Jarvis Davis - he's a mini celebrity in our neighborhood). I also know that this crushing sadness will eventually end. What helps the most is all of our pals on Dogster and Facebook sending so much love and support. I said it last night and still mean it - words cannot express the gratitude that I feel.
