Last week, we made the difficult decision to say goodbye to the best dog in the world. It was one of the most difficult decisions we’ve had to make in a very long time. Jack’s been with me since I was 21 and he was only 10 weeks old.
He was with me when I graduated from college, attended law school, took bar exams, got married, and adopted cats. He was George’s first pet.
And he’s the reason my mom got Max, the polar bear:
Max and Jack were good friends.
At almost 14 years and three months, Jack’s quality of life was beginning to decrease rapidly and it was difficult to watch. We found a vet that would come to the house and that was the best gift we could give Jack. Jack was not stressed out, he didn’t have to go anywhere and he was excited to have a visitor! As difficult as it was (and still is) for us, I know we made the right decision.
He will always be loved and missed.
