Jake, Border Terrier x JRT, 1999-2013

After several months decline we made the sad decision to say goodbye to Jake on Saturday.  He was a stubborn, gobby, wonderful little dog, but had become very unpredictable.  He never showed any signs of pain but he just wasn't aware of his surroundings any more.  He had sedatives for breakfast and my old boss came out to the house, he drifted off to sleep in his favourite indoor spot by the french doors, on my lap.  

He was my dog when I lived at home, my little mate who got me into dog training and behaviour.  The house is very quiet without him.

Running on the beach in Cornwall last summer with my spaniel and my parents' other dog

A good age for any dog, and he looks as though he knew how to enjoy life.  Thinking of you in your sadness - they are so much a part of our lives x
