We sadly had to say goodbye to our big old puppy Jasper this Wednesday. He was diagnosed with Leukemia a few weeks ago, so we knew our time with him was limited. At the beginning of the week we began to see signs of him deteriorating. With him at his worst on Wednesday, we phoned the vets in the morning to arrange him to go and to be put to sleep. His appointment was that evening. He didn't make it to the vet and sadly passed away at home that afternoon.
We are absolutely heartbroken. We all miss him so much, he was such a lovely boy. All I want to do is give him a big cuddle and a kiss right now. I keep forgetting that he is gone. I keep hearing little noises thinking he is going to come bounding in the room.
I'm trying to think positively about it all. Jasper detested the vets, so for him to slip away in the comfort of his home was the best for him. He is no longer suffering and is at peace. We love you Jasper. I'll always remember you. Rest in peace Jiggy.
* I say puppy, he was nearly 9. He always had such a puppy face, so he will always be my puppy dog.
