Jiggy had cancer. He fought it for a few months, getting better and better. Suddenly he took a severe turn this week. He was begining to suffer. His last day was good. We had a party for him with lots of steak and he passed with his favorite Kong ball in his mouth. He was awesome to the end.
For anyone that might not know Jiggy rode the back of an Xtracycle and kayaked with me from Savannah to Key West in fall 2001 to raise money for First Descents. He was the sole reason for the success. People would see this pitbull on the back of the bike and a 15 foot kayak strapped to it and stop to ask what we were doing and get a photo with Jigs. It was increadable.
Thanks to everyone for the nice notes. And to Sallyman, thanks for the help yesterday. You are a great friend.
