Goodbye to my best friend Jake

Yesterday Jeanne and I had to say goodbye to our much loved travel buddy, Jake. He was pushing 14. Prior to January 2014, Jake had never been outside our neighborhood. That all changed once we purchased our 2013 Flying Cloud. Then off to Alaska, an unbelievable trip to Newfoundland and the Atlantic Provinces and last winter in the South West. He traveled with us on a recent trip to Florida in our new to us 2008 30 Classic LTD. We will always cherish those memories.

Jeanne always referred to Jake as our Goodwill Ambassador. Everywhere we went, Jake was always approached by old and young alike, wanting to pet him and say hello. It was something he always loved.

I will miss him forever.

Awwwwwww.... what a great dog! Sorry for your loss.

I agree.... the one downside to having a dog. Otherwise, they are stinkin' awesome!!
