Another Sad Day

It's been almost six months since Garfield died. Every Garfield needs his Odie, and my Garfield's was Jake. We had to take Jake to his final visit to the vet's today: he was diagnosed with aggressive terminal cancer three weeks ago and given six months to live, but a turn for the worse last week pulled that date back to today. He was sixteen.

We got Jake as a pup in 1993, and he kept those puppy looks right up until the end. I visited him at my mother's yesterday, and gave him a hug and touched our foreheads together like we've done since we were both young. He was the best of dogs.

Sleep peacefully boy.

I will miss you.
