Saying goodbye

Last Tuesday night we left Elliott with a sitter and went to see Jack for the last time. David had gotten a call from the vet earlier letting us know that the treatment they had given Jack hadn't worked. He was still paralyzed, and the chance of him ever recovering was pretty slim. I was a wreck. David and I said our goodbyes, and thanked him for being such a wonderful dog and for the time we had with him. We are now slowly adjusting to the quiet house that now greets us after we are away, sweeping up the food that Elliott drops for him, and putting away his things until I can bring myself to deal with them. We still don't really know what happened, and thought that Jack would be with us for 5 or 10 years more. He was an awesome dog, and was good with Elliott, and we will miss him dearly.

Oh Nicki, I am so sorry! I know the feeling completely and it is really hard. Hang in there and know he is in a better place. I miss talking to you, we need to catch up.
