There's a hole in my heart & soul.
My eyes burn with tears both shed & unshed.
Friday you were in pain, you tried to tell me.
Did I miss the signs?
Did I wait too long?
We'll never know.

The truth is that, you did tell me
I saw the signs
I saw the shock. The mad drive to the vet to relieve your pain.

Even though you didn't realize I was there,
I fulfilled my promise
I kept my word
I brought up the vein
I held you in my arms
I talked you through the process
You did not know it was me,
I was there.

Christine was there in spirit, I know that she wanted to be there & is having as bad a time as I am right now.
This morning I laid you to rest with the rest your brothers & sisters by the raspberry canes.
Rest easy my friend
You hold my heart & soul in your care.

This is "JC". He was named after the famous Jean Claude Van Dam and one of his action movies.
He is the last male from the large litter of eight remaining at the kennel and is owned by Nancy Downing.
JC is a real couch potatoe. You cannot convince him that he is too heavy to lay right on top of your chest as you try to watch a TV program.
No matter how long you've been gone from the house, or even closed a bedroom door, he is always happy to see you and will let you know that he has missed you.
You might say that he has an obsession. He has a very large box, filled with oversized toys. Any time someone comes home, he wants to play, or he just goes by, he will grab a new toy and parade around proudly. He enjoys throwing them all over the house and then piling them in the living room as a bed for himself.
