Our sweet little boy, Jody has crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge. He was not getting any better and the doctors said there was no hope for him and because he was in so much pain the decision was made to let him go. Everything that could be done was done. My heart is breaking. When I had to give my boys up a year ago, I was crushed, but I knew that in the end they would all be readopted and find good homes but this is different. Jody was special. Last year he was found at the end of a dirt road, emaciated, with hookworms and heart worms by Chris and her daughter, Emily. He went from being dumped to the best loving family a dog could ever hope for. He survived surgery on his back and seemed to be so carefree, loving and happy. Mona & I got to have him over at our house whenever we wanted and Mona got to stay with Jody too. We will miss him more than I can every say. I would like to thank everybody for all the prayers offered up for Jody. The only good to come of out of this is that I know in my heart that Jody is at the bridge now with my Samantha and some day I will see him again. I know Jody wasn't my dog but the pain is still there. I think that God must have decided, not to ever let me have children because if the pain of losing Samantha and Jody is this bad, how it must be to lose a child.
Jody had a disastrous start to his short life but in his last year he had what all animals deserve.
A family that loved him, doggie brothers and friends to play with and a place forever in our hearts. The way I want to remember him was the last day I saw him, when he was playing with a stuffed animal that Mona had given him, that was his favorite toy, running, laughing and giving me lots of kisses. Now whenever Mona & I look into the sky, we will see Samantha & Jody's stars shining back at us.
Run free my sweet boy. We will miss you.
Sarah, Mona's Mommy.
