Mom and Dad decided to put Jack down today.
It sounded like he'd fallen a day or two before and was unable to get up. I've had a hard few hours mourning and remembering him. And in doing so I'm humbled by God's providence in how he's blessed us with the perfect dog for the season of life we were in. Jack was an excellent dog. He'll be greatly missed.
It's an honor to take these animals into our homes and into our lives as faithful companions.
