When we lived in Michigan, Jack showed up one day, tail wagging, all smiles. No one ever claimed him and so we were fortunate enough to get to adopt him. I know most people think this, but he really was the best dog. So kind and loving. All he wanted to do was be with the family. He adored hiking and swimming in lakes. When my son was a toddler, he would crawl all over Jack, pull his ears and tail, but Jack wouldn’t even flinch. I’ve never much considered myself a dog person, but Jack wasn’t like most dogs. Jack was more human than pet. You could see the soul in his eyes, his intelligence, his kindness. There wasn’t a person alive who didn’t love Jack.
I really can’t believe he’s gone. No matter how many pets you lose, it never gets easier. I guess all you can do is enjoy the time you have together. So Goodbye Jack, you will be greatly missed.
