Goodbye To A Dear Friend And Wonderful Companion
In memory of our beloved Jester (Jesse) who was put to sleep this evening to end his suffering.
8th December 2001 - 17th September 2012
The most gentle and loving creature. Despite the best treatment from the vet, it had no effect and he was in a lot of pain. We know we did the right thing but that does not stop the tears falling from both of us. We are heartbroken.
He was a wonderful companion not only to us but also to the late Pip whom many of you will remember and for the last few years to Jack who is now wandering through our home looking for Jess.
He slept by the bed each night and had never been away from us. He was with me through my cancer treatment and barely left my side. When I came home from the nine day hospital stay having my knee done he went mad with joy.
We have Jack and Leo of course but Leo is out more than he is in and there is a strange emptiness to our home that was not there before. Jess was always following us around to see what I was doing, to see what Mike was doing. He always seemed to be everywhere.
How we will miss him singing along to the Coronation Street theme tune and the mad water games in the garden.
He was obedient, loyal. loving. faithful and also very beautiful if you call a male dog beautiful.
We will never forget him. His ashes will be coming home to us to rest beside Pip's casket. We like to think he is with Pip now racing across some green field - all pain gone.
Rest in peace beloved friend. We love you and always will.
