Sad to report the loss of a good friend. Old age caught up with Jasper today, and he let me know it was time. He left us peacefully, drifting off into beautiful sleep. The rest of us are left with pain and mourn the loss. There is a hole left that will remain a long time. He was a shelter dog, and we gave him 15 good years, and he gave us 15 good years. I’ll miss the happy smile, tail wagging and playing in the snow like a pup. Goodbye my friend. Daddy loves you.
