Wow, I can't believe how quickly that happened, I am so deeply sorry. You and Jack did all you could to fight this disease and how we all ache for your loss. We so wish we could have gotten to know you both better. It just doesn't make any sense and I know you must be reeling.

It's early now and I know your heart is shattered. In time it can help to cope by sharing your favorite memories together. When and if you are ready to do that, hop over to another Forum like Share Your Story or Coping with Loss, and tell us more about all the good times you had. Share pictures, give us a peek at the sweet soul he was. It may help your heart heal just a little.

My heart and condolences go out to you. {{{{hugs}}}}}

Oh my goodness, Oh Jen, I am so sorry. I am so so sorry. that is just, it's so freaking unfair. I am so sorry. Jack had the best mom and he knows that he was very loved and he will always be by your side, even if not in visible form. This disease is the nastiest thing ever and there is just no sense in it whatsoever. please, if you can, share a little of his life with us here. I have no better words, but again, I am so sorry. please feel hugged and know that you are not alone.

Guardian of Manni the Wonderdog. -Or is it the other way 'round?

Manni was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in Dec '15 and immediately had his right front leg amputated, followed by 5 rounds of chemo. Manni's real name is Manfred and he turns 10 on Jan 28 2017. So far we are mets-free...

I am so sorry to hear about Jack. What a loving journey though. He couldn't have had a better parent. I know from experience how painful the loss is. Keep your voting memories close.  When we lost our beautiful black lab Diamond to lymphoma, it helped me to write little notes to her...like a gratitude journal about all the things I loved about her.  Hugs to you.

We all cry with you at this hardest of times.  You gave Jack the gift of loving him enough to let him go when he told you it was time.  The love you had for each other will transcend the heavens now and be shining down on you.  Jack will be with you always in spirit and in your precious memories.  Sending you healing light and peace.  Fly free new Angel!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

There was no way, other than your gut, to tell that perhaps things were not quite as what the vets thought or promised. You did ABSOLUTELY everything that was in his very best interest always.  And as hard as that is...and awful...you must know that this is truly what we all want to never happen and yet it does. We at DaBears HQ are are very, very sad to hear of your loss. But ALWAYS know you have done what is the very best amongst not so very wonderful options. We are surrounding you with huge hugs, much love and light, and peace from DaBears HQ.

I just cant seem to make sense of any of it.  It feels like a dream and he really isn't gone.  I am waiting for him to come hobbling around the corner.  for 9 years Jack was by my side, literally.  He worshiped the ground I walked on and took his job very serious to protect and love me.  He would sit in the bathroom while I would take a shower, He will wait outside the door until I came back, he would try and save me anytime I got in water by pulling my pony tail, he went everywhere with me, he went on all our vacations, and he protected me no matter what.   His eyes were always on me and watching my.  I don't even know how to begin to grieve this loss.  All I want to do is hold my boy again.

Continue to stay connected to js Jen. We will help hold you up as you crumble. The void is unbearable right now. The break in routine is crushing. All you can do right now is get through ten seconds at a time. Just get through those seconds. It will hurt. But you will get through it. At some point you will be able to get through one minute at a time. It will hurt but you will get through it, ever so slowly, so painfully slow. That's all we can do with grief, feel it, and move through it. EVENTUALLY,the happier memories will push the grief further away. We all promise you that!

The way you just described your relationship with Jack gave me a smile through the tears. Tryi g to pull you kut of the water wkth your pony tail...priceless! That boy is truly connected to you! Without question , that bond is unbreakable! You don't feel like he is really gone, because your heart knows he is forever with you. You two are SOUL MATES and will always be connected.

I KNOW that Jack's eyes are still on you...still watching over you. It was your Guardian on earth and he is still your Guardian and Protector watching over you from an energy state and from another dimension.

Remember, we have a tripawds helpli e staffed by embers here who are there to offer support and help hold you up when you need it. We are a@so here to learn more about all of Jack's "specialness" and all the wonderful times you two shared. 1 844 TRIPAWDS

What sweet memories, I love the one of him pulling you by your ponytail in the water! Yes, do share photos when you can. Here's a post about adding images to the Forums, and dear Sally can also help I see (thanks Sally!).

Please know that you are grieving. Each day you get out of bed and face the morning, as hard as it is to see it, you are healing. And don't worry, healing doesn't mean you will forget him. Quite the contrary. Healing means that your heart and brain learn to connect, and you realize that he really is there by your side, he's just changed form.

The spiritual and emotional bond you had with him can never, ever die and it just gets stronger in time as you embrace all the goodness he brought into your life. Unfortunately, that takes time. And nobody can say how long it will take, everyone is different. That saying "there's no going around grief, you have to go through it," is so true.
