Goodbye Beloved Jewel

It is with tears in my eyes and great sadness in my heart that I say goodbye to my sweet sweet Jewel (I'm crying as I type this). She was the most gentle and loving boxer who endeared everyone she met, greeting them with a big smile and plenty of wet kisses. She loved camping, road trips and the Airstream lifestyle. The GT was a happy place for all of us. I was lucky enough to have her in my life for almost 8 1/2 wonderful years. She saw me through good times and bad, always there to comfort me with unconditional love. Sadly this past weekend she suffered cardiac failure and could not be revived. Just minutes before she was joyfully playing in the yard with Ellie, her best friend, companion and playmate. I hope she knows that I will love her forever! Cherish every day with your pets and never take them for granted. I thank God for my time with her and for Ellie, without whom I would be completely lost.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Oh no.


Having met Jewel and a boxer owner myself I know all you are going through. I'm sure your Ellie is licking your tears.

Our thoughts are with you,

Michael and Vicky

Hey Todd,

Sorry about your furry friend. I too have gotten rather attached to our lab who is way too spoiled for her own good. They truly are our Fur kids...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I grew up with Boxers, they are really special dogs. They are full of joy, I'm sure she enjoyed every minute with you!

I am very sorry for your loss. It is never easy to loose a beloved member of the family especially so suddenly. I know it is hard but be thankful she was not in pain and she had a chance to play with her friend before going. She will always be with you in mind and spirit. I swear my Ginger still sits on the sofa with us.

So sorry for your loss. My very best friend had Duke and Darla, two of the sweetest boxers I had ever known. They were put to sleep while in his arms. I know the loss you are feeling.
