Missing Jake…

It’s been 12 weeks and 3 days since we lost our golden angel Jake to osteosarcoma. At times it seems so long ago, and other times it seems like just a week ago that he was here. Memories of him are all around our home…

Sometimes I wake up in the morning, and for a few seconds I forget that he’s not here anymore… then reality sets in… ๐Ÿ™

Here is a picture ofย  Wolfie with Jake… during happier times… I miss my baby so much!

    Oh gosh – I hear you….I understand and I send you big hugs and tons of love and shared tears. Memories are a wonderful thing – let them bring love and smiles to your heart…I always smile when I think of my boy, but yet the tears still come in waves unexpectedly and more frequent than I thought they would at 5 months. I will never get used to life without Zeus.

    Hang in there kiddo – love to you and Wolfie from me and Buddy. Zeus and Jake are hanging out watching over us ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hugs to you,

    First, I want to say that my heart still breaks for you at the loss of Jake! He was such a wonderful dog, and I know it still must hurt so much.

    But, on a happier note, Wolfie and Nala look happy! What an adorable pair! I am sure those two can make you smile when you are having a rough day.

    Hope all is well!

    Kristin and Toto

    Dear Jakes Mom:
    I just read your entire story, and I miss Jake too just looking at all his pictures with you. I am so sorry for your loss. I know you miss him a lot. You can take comfort in the fact that you loved him very well!!and gave him the best life he could have had.
    I have a Golden Girl Rosie. You posted on my story back in Sept when I first started out the same time as you. We both live in Florida. My golden is 12 and we took a different route as they said they could possibly save her leg with a strong dose of radiation. Well they got rid of the Cancer but her leg latter fractured. She’s had a minor fracture ever since and getting worse. She limps on it. They want to amputate now after 6 months of trying to save her leg.

    Watching your Jake gave me new hope for Rosie. She is older than he was. She is 12. I am going thru similar feelings that you had. I’m scared to amputate, but it seems Jake had a quality of life those last couple months with you.
    I am so sorry about his passing. I can only imagine how hard it was for you as I think of my own girl and how I will feel when she is gone. I can relate.
    She is by my side all the time. I work at home and she follows me around everywhere even tho she is lame now and limps with difficulty to follow me.
    I hope amputation is the right route for my girl. I wish I could talk to you. Amputation seems so final. But at least they don’t have pain anymore right? Did you still have to give a lot of drugs to Jake after amputation? if you don’t mind me asking?
    Hope you are feeling a little better as each day goes by.
    Best Wishes,
    Rosie’s Mom
