I got Jared the same year I was going to enter highschool . I did not want a golden , I wanted a german shepherd but we went to see the puppies. A small golden bundle of joy layed in my lap and stared at me with big chocolate eyes and I was lost. We have been together every day since.
My heart is broken after losing this dog. He truly was my best friend.

I want to start off just be thanking anyone that reads my blogs.
I must give some history before I start blogging.
Nine years ago I purchased a beautiful Golden Retriever puppy and named him Jared. Three days after I got him I had to nurse him back to health. He had an insane case of salmon poisoning that almost stole his light from this earth. We grew and developed together. Jared was the only reason I made it through high school. He has been my only friend during the roughest times of my life.
Jared coming into my life put me on the path to dog training. He was the first dog I ever really worked with. Nine years ago we were a mess. He was patient with me when I tried method after method of training on him.
We grew fat together , we lost weight together, we cried and laughed and loved! He is truly my best friend.
Now its my turn to try and make his life better. He was diagnosed with a massive tumor in his stomach cavity. He desperately needs surgery to have it removed but I don't have the $1000+ it will cost. I am trying to raise money as fast as I can. Jared has a short month if the tumor is not removed.
I took him to see another vet at 9:30am on Thursday and he went into surgery right away. They opened him up and the cancer had not spread to any other organs. I was sent home to wait with a good feeling in my heart.
At 12:22 Jared's heart stopped. The vet had managed to remove the entire tumor but Jared's heart just couldn't handle the long surgery and lose of blood or it could have been a clot. We aren't sure. Before the vet took him away I hugged him and told him that if it was too much to just go. He didn't have to stick around for me if it hurt too much, that I'd be ok.
I buried him down by the creek that he loved to swim in all year long. I covered his grave with rocks so that I could always know right where he is. Next spring I am going to plant some type of flower that will grow and cover the ground around the area .
I miss him so much. I never realized that in away he was my whole world and now its crumbling down around me.

Today started out like any other day. I woke my mom up at 5:45 to go outside and chase any intruders that might have come during the night. Mom of course goes back to bed and does not come out to help me. Uncle Charlie and Callie do come with me to scope out the lay of the yard.
My mom gets up around 8:30 or so and goes and takes a shower and gets dressed. I watch her closely just in case she is carring some cookies. She walks back into her room and picks up a back and starts putting stuff in it. I cock my head to the side. Shes leaving? I thought she was gonna stay home and play with me today. She sets the bag by the door then starts filling up some type of blue box with stuff from the cold box with food in it. She carries this all to the car. Callie and I follow her boucning and playing excited because she might let us in the car. She opens the back door and waves us in. We can't get in fast enough.
