3 weeks since I lost you Jake.

Jake,

It's only been 3 weeks since we had to put you to sleep. I want you to know that I am so sorry we had to do that. I still feel so guilty and sad. I miss you so much. My heart is still broken into a million pieces. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about you. How are you doing in heaven? Are you adjusting well? I hope there's lots of cats for you to chase up there and lots of squirrels and rabbits to hunt too. You were such a good dog. You still had so much life and love to give and I'm so sorry your life was cut short. But you felt like you to had to protect us all the time. You bit once and you tried to bite twice more. We didn't want you to bite anyone else Jakey. I hope you can understand that and I hope to God you forgive us. I don't know why you were abused as a puppy, but I don't regret taking you in off the streets and nursing you back to health. I would do it all over again if I had a choice. Even with the outcome of losing you...I Swear I would do it all over again. You will always have a special place in my heart Jake and I hope to always have a special place in yours. While you were here with us...You made us so happy. You gave us so much love and joy. You were with me the second time Brandon was deployed to Iraq and even though he was gone and I was alone...I always felt safe having you in the house. I knew that no one would ever try to break in with you there. You were there when I brought my son home from the hospital and you welcomed him into your heart. You licked his tiny little head and even though the city of Harker Heights thought of you as "dangerous" I knew that you would never hurt Brendan. You were a part of Brendan's life for about 6 months before we lost you. I have to go now Jakey..before I start crying...but I want you to know that I love and miss you very very much. I can't wait to meet up with you again at Rainbow Bridge. I look forward to that moment where you greet me and lick my face and we hug each other. By the way...You were a good friend to Buddy and I know he misses you too. He will meet you at Rainbow Bridge before we do...and then one day I'll get to see you both again. I love you Jake. I love you so much.
