Reunited with a good friend

Yesterday a close friend of mine called me at 8 am…there is usually never good news when the phone rings at 8 am on a Sunday morning.  She had just come back from the vet where she had to let her sweet chocolate lab mix Jaxx go.  Jaxx was diagnosed with a large malignant tumor on his chest wall back in March.  The tumor was inoperable and the vet wasn’t sure how long he had.

Jaxx and Lupe got along WONDERFULLY!  The met a couple of years ago and were never far away from each other when together.  Jaxx and Lupe saw each other for the last time the week of Lupe’s surgery, only about a week before she let go.  Jaxx was very gentle with her and seeing him just perked her up.

The last time I saw Jaxx he anxiously looked around my bag and sniffed me, looking for Lupe.  When he didn’t see her he whimpered, sighed and immediately put his head on my lap for a big ear scratch.  Gotta love who dogs just know things.

Jaxx and Lupe are now reunited…living it large and both pain free.  I’m so proud of Dawn for all she gave him over the years and how in the end she gave him the opportunity to let go and run free.  When they leave us their pain is gone and ours truly begins.

Be well brown dog…

Jaxx – a true gentleman and friend

    Isn’t is a bit comforting to think of the two of them together again? Many years ago we adopted littermates, Zeus and Merlin, and they were inseparable until we lost Merlin to cancer three years ago. Merlin was always the alpha dog and Zeus just happily followed along, so I was really worried how he would do without his brother. But, Zeus seemed to understand and he went on to stun us with how smart and insightful he is and how well he adjusted to expressing himself. That is the biggest sense of comfort that I have with this last part of the journey – knowing that when the time comes that they will be together again…

    Please tell your friend we send our deepest condolences, we are so sorry.

    Jaxx looked and sounded like a terrific dog. I’m sure that he and Lupe are having a ball, reunited forever. Some day you will all meet again.
