Last night we spent our last few hours with our loving Jakey-boy. The old guy was 13.5 years old but nobody in this house was ready to say goodbye. Luckily he went really fast and didn't seem to suffer. Yesterday when I was leaving for work he was out hunting, peeing on all of his favorite trees, and eating Q's breakfast that made it onto the floor. A perfect morning for our lovable flatcoat!
Jake came into my life as a package deal with Denis. So everyday that Denis and I have spent together has included the puppy dog eyes above. I am so happy that I got to spend 9 years with Jakenstein Applesauce. In his last 19 months he was the best big brother to little Q. He was so patient, loving and damn he just put up with a toddler pulling his tail, wanting to give him kisses and he always had a little one on hand to give him a "Jakey nummi".
There won't be a day when we won't think about Jake. Love you
