Years ago I bought my son a chocolate lab , 13 years ago exactly . He named him Jack , this was the left over pup from a litter . Jack never needed housebreaking he was perfect but he didn't like to retrieve and he was scared of storms. He also didn't like to swim but if his boy was in the river he was going to be by his side and they were together constantly , if a stranger came up to my son Jack would stand in between them to protect him. My son Dallas made the call and tomorrow Jack will cross over the Rainbow Bridge and wait for him. This is hard to write and it hurts but the right call has been made . Tears will fall tomorrow but we will have our memories it will take awhile but the pain will slowly go away.
