Thank you guys, I believe it with all my heart that my Abbey runs the heavenly fields and has me in her heart too. I hold fast to the verse I read a year ago today "Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it. Love is as strong as death" (Song of Sol 8:7, 6) Your tribute to Jerry is amazing and I for one am hoping there will be a book one day ~ You write things I don't know how to express but I feel them… it would minister to so many.
love, joy, peace,
I am one month shy of one year without Jack — December 27, 2008 — holidays have been tough this year, thinking back to last year. Had no idea last thanksgiving would be my last with Jack. In some ways I am dreading Christmas this year, it will be full of reminders of how awful last Christmas was.
Posting this now as he has been on my mind quite a bit these past several days…
July 12, 2004 to December 27, 2008
Fittingly, a friend of mine created a necklace in memory of Jack — the sentiment that goes along with it sums our amazing Tripawds up so very well…. if you have a moment, please check it out….
Hugs to all of you as the holidays approach.. May we all remember the amazing lessons these amazing pups have taught!
Kristen, Angel Jack and Charlie….

I hope all the chocolate-colored tripawds are having a good romp together in doggie heaven. Yoda liked to get in touch with his Lab roots when he went to the dog park (at least, I always assumed he had Lab in him).
Best wishes, thoughts and prayers going out to you on this sad anniversary as you continue to heal.
Yoda&Mom united: 9/5/06 …….… Yoda&Leg separated: 6/5/09……… Yoda&Leg reunited: 10/14/09 ……… ……………….………….………….……. Yoda&Mom NEVER separated! …………………….….……....….…… Though Spirit Yoda currently free-lances as a rabbit hunting instructor for tripawds nationwide

My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know you still miss your Jackers and also hope that you have started to heal. Maybe Emily and Jack are taking rabbit hunting lessons from Yoda.
