Just a month ago, we had to see our boy Jack to the Rainbow Bridge. It was hard but it was time. Jack was unique. He was a chihuahua. He'd been dumped on the street where we found him. We had two female chi at the time, and when they met Jack they approved. So after weeks of no reply to posters we kept him. Jack had issues. A lot of them. He had clearly been abused. He didn't bark for a year, and then it was a weird croak. He had temper triggers, after which he would look so, so sorry. My husband was his person. I couldn't even hand him the phone without Jack trying to take my hand off. But if he wasn't by Dad on the couch he was sweet to me. His full name became Wacky Jack the Psycho Dog. Over the years, he did get better. Still had a few triggers but we knew what they were so expected it. He had seemed around 2 when we found him. IF so, he lived until he was 18 or so. By the time he gave us the sign, he was blind, deaf, had no teeth and several medical issues. But he still loved his food and would be under the table with the others looking for hand outs. He had a great life, and we spoiled him to make up for whatever meanness he'd suffered before they tossed him onto the street. Love you buddy. You were one of a kind.

He sounds like quite a character and a great friend and companion. I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm glad Jack had a good long life with you, but I'm sorry for his loss.

So sorry for your loss. I just lost another of my sweet fur-friends today, and am very sad.

Ironically 3chidogs, I remember when I posted about losing one of my furry children nearly 10 years ago - Puddin. And you replied and said something like there would always be that corner of my heart saved just for him. The same will be so for you, there will be always be that corner of your heart all for Jack. He had a good long life thanks to you filled with love, lucky boy. Now he is at peace running and playing at Rainbow Bridge.
