Jack Boy

by Nichole
(Gallatin)

I saved Jack from a shelter one year ago. He had been abused by his past owners. You could tell in his eyes. He was very skittish. He finally opened up to us, and let us in. He was the most behaved and the smartest dog I've ever had the pleasure of meeting.

He was loyal, and I know that when he died, he was happy. He knew he was finally loved. Or, so I hope he knew.

My dog got hit by a truck today. I had to see it on my ride home. It was honestly unbelievable. There's just so much I wish I could say to him, but it's too late now.

I miss him more then I could even put in words. And he will always be missed. He was a big part of my life, and my family's life. I am in my "what if" stage of grieving at this point. And it's awful. There is absolutely no way to get my mind off what has just happened.

I just want him to know I loved him, so much. And that I will never forget him.

Your Jack Boy knew you loved him. It's written all over his face.

Rest in peace.

I'm So Sorry
by: Laurie, Holly's mom

I have tears running down my face as I read your message. Your poor baby, but at least you gave him a better life for a short time.

Why would somebody ever hurt that precious face? I don't understand how people can abuse an animal. All they want is love and to return that love.

He knows you loved him. He loved you probably even more for rescuing him.

It's so hard to take the pain of losing your baby, so let the tears flow. Someday it will not be so painful to look back at the memories of him.

You do love Jack Boy. He knows.

He loves you as you love him and always will as you always will. My Big Dot, whom I had to to put to sleep because she was nearly 17 and her kidneys shut down, died with her head in my lap. As the Dr. gave her the shot, she looked into my eyes and thumped her tail twice as if to say it's OK.

That was more than 20 years ago. She still lives in my heart as I am in her heart. I have tears in my eyes now as I yet again remember my friend. Don't despair, Jack Boy will always be with you.
