i miss this sweet boy. jake went to his forever home this week, and as happy as i am for him, i am also quite sad, selfishly. he came into my life during a particularly raw and difficult time; a time with unexpected sadness and loss, a time that forced a realization in my life that i still am struggling to accept. my heart, my head, it's tough. he brought so much love and joy into our home. and i am forever grateful that we crossed paths when we did. he gave me hope and rejuvenated passion in things that i feared might be lost forever. thank you buddy, will always miss you, love you and think of you fondly. go live your best life . . .
