i feel for you and know somewhat how you feel. i lost my pooch about 2.5 years ago to an unimaginable accident/tragedy. i didn't even get to say goodbye to him. probably the hardest thing i've ever been through. hang in there. cherish the good memories and the good life you gave him. i'll be thinking about you. just typing this post has me a bit choked up thinking about my old boy going away.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.
