My dog Jeri.
« on: May 07, 2013, 03:30:45 PM »
My dog Jeri had to be put down today at 9:00 AM. We found out he had a large tumor in his abdomen last Saturday and he wasn't going to make it. He was a member of our family. We got him when I was 3 and a half years old, and I can't even remember anything before Jeri. As far as I'm concerned, Jeri was always there and he was always a member of our family. He was such a good dog, there was no other dog like him. No dog can replace him. I feel like a lost not only a family member, I feel like I lost a huge part of my childhood. And it serves to remind me that time is going by fast, much too fast for my liking. When my Mom and sisters got home, I read to them the eighth chapter of Bambi A Life in The Woods. I broke down when I read it, I almost couldn't go on reading it.

RIP Jeri. )':

Sorry to hear of your loss Brett. :(  Pets are very much like family; its never happy when they leave us.  15 years is a long time, and they provide many happy memories for you about Jeri, even if Jeri isn't there anymore.
