Arrival Story:
I picked him out when he was two weeks old. The vet had slipped and cut off all his tail, so when I saw him the first time, (I saw his butt first), so I always tell everyone I fell in love with his butt!! Two days later, his mom bite him and flung him into a cement wall because he bit her while nursing. He should have died then, but his fighting spirit pulled him through (something almost ten years later that he would need again.) We took him at just over 6 weeks and he was the best dog I ever had. On December 10, 2003, my world collapsed. The love of my life was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. He was given a week or two at best, unless we amputated his leg. One December 16, 2003, we did just that. He did great as a tripod. Even dragging me for walks in a short time. Unfortunately, he had a problem with chemo. We fought kidney failure for two months (on top of the cancer). On March 12th, we found out his kidneys were totally shutting down and also that the cancer had come back into his lungs. We got one more week (but we lived every minute of that time doing all the things he loved and went to see all those who loved him for one last kiss!) We said our final goodbyes on March 18, 2004, in our home, with his daddy and me holding him and telling him how much we love him. He is now my beautiful angel, watching over us and protecting us just like he always has. We love you and miss you so much, Jake.....Love, Mommy, Daddy, Jimmy Jr. & Brianna oxox
