Saying Goodbye to Handsome Jac

I try to stay away from the sad stuff on my blog, but so many of you have become dear friends, you might want to know Handsome Jac passed away in February.  Here's a photo tribute to a sweet member of our family.
 






 
He was such a good boy.

  2. My heart goes out to you. We are breeders of Hovawart, Eurasier and Leonberger. Sadly many of our furry family members have travelled beyond the rainbow. I know your sorrow. Take the time it needs to heel. Rest in peace Handsome Jac.

  5. I'm so sorry to hear this. He was a gorgeous dog! I know losing a dog is very traumatic...just as much as any family member (at least to me!). Time will make it not hurt so much, but you will always miss him. Hugs.

  6. Oh Jac was a handsome boy. I am so sorry for your loss. It is not easy to lose a beloved fur member of the family. I two lost my sweet Miss Beazy already 2 years ago but feels like only yesterday at times.
    He lives on in your heart!
    Hugs

  7. What a fitting name! From the looks of these photos it appears that Jac enjoyed a very fulfilling life. Losing a pet is so incredibly heartbreaking.

  8. There is a deep dark emptiness when a beloved pet slips the bonds of life.

  9. I am so sorry for your loss. When our Lab crossed the rainbow bridge someone sent me this-

    I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep. I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep. I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here." I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea, You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me. I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore. I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more. I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care. I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there. I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key. I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said " it's me." You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there. It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday. To say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew... In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you. The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning and say "good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide, I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side. I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see. Be patient, live your journey out...then come home to be with me. Author ~ Unknown ~♥~

I know what its like cause two of my pets passed away all in a year, Hope you find comfort in talking about it, it did help me and the memories are important. it may feel painful to keep photos around but in the long run it does help to keep memories of them close by. Big hug from me to you... Maria
