Default Lost my best friend today. Rest in Peace Jake

Jake died in my arms at 4:30 this afternoon. He was 14. It's tough..really gonna miss him...Best dog I ever had.

Thought I'd post it here because he had been in so many fishing reports over the years...

Love ya Jake...

I'm so sorry to hear that, Dave. Hurts like heck to lose a faithful pal that's covered so many miles with you. Nothing anybody says can make that hurt go away. Only time can diminish it.

I was lucky. He went for a walk on Friday afternoon and swam at the pond...Yesterday he had no energy and could barely walk...He died today at home before we had to take him to the vet...hiking and swimming until the very end..still...so tough...I'll miss him...He was a good dog.

Man I hate to hear this. I'm sorry, Dave. Sounds like he lived a while and perhaps there wasn't much suffering? You gave him a gooooood life.

I remember that report where you faked his death. one of the better reports on CF.

RIP JAKE.

so sad to read this Dave, i never met Jake but always felt like he was a buddy from all your reports. Doc and i lost our friend kitty kat about a month ago and still miss her a lot. Jake had a great life, and the people he owned took good care of him. Doc and i know he will have a good journey to the land of unlimited chew toys and doggie treats
