dang, david. i'm crying over every dog i ever loved. deb...

My heart was saddened at your loss. Being a true dog lover and friend, I took a moment to recognize how much J.E.B. meant to you and your family. He was a real trooper; keeping watch, trying to maintain sanity with his "new friend" Sadie, and protecting what he saw as his family.

Damn it...God Bless you Jeb.

David, my heart breaks when I read about. I know some of your pain. We got our little pug Maxwell two years ago, and God knows what kind of comfort he has brought to my husband Steve and myself. He is the one constant in our lives right now. He loves you no matter what kind of day you are having. He gets his favorite toy and lays on the recliner with Steve at night and sleeps at the foot of the bed. He does not have "moods" he loves you no matter what. I 'am so sorry that he had to be put down. I share your grief.

Oh David you break my heart and I am shedding a tear for Jeb. We have come to know him as our "cancer friend" and how he was a "Knight" to his Warrior. He is waiting by the bridge with Gracie by his side ready to welcome all who have come to know and love him. Grieve for your "Knight". Our animal family is as important as our human family and we greive just as much for them.
