View Full Version : Jake is at the Rainbow Bridge.

Jake is at the Rainbow Bridge.

I thought we would have several more years with him. He was only 7 1/2.

It was either cancer or blastomycosis, and it was in his lungs. The vet said she couldn't do anything for his nausea and he would have either starved or died of thirst waiting for the results of the labs which would tell us which one it was, and it wouldn't do him any good to know because the results would be the same.

We couldn't bring his remains home because if it was blastomycosis he had to be cremated.

We arranged for a private cremation and they will be giving his ashes back to us. I think I'll get an urn and put him on the fireplace.

Rest in Peace dear Jake.

OMG. I'm so sorry. I'm just stunned. :( :( :(

I am very sad to hear of Jakes Passing, and am sending you my Love and Hugs to get you through this awful time, Rest in Peace sweet Jake and have fun at RB with all the other sweet doggies and kitties.

07-15-2004, 05:47 PM
I'm glad we're moving, and that we didn't move before Jake passed away. I want to get out of this house because I know that every time I open the door I'll expect to see him standing there, and every time I come downstairs in the dark I'll automatically step over him.

I wish Mom could take her chihuahuas back. For some reason I just don't want them here now. I was going to take Tony permanently but I don't think so now. I just want Max for now.

07-15-2004, 06:00 PM

{{{hugs}}} to you and I am so sorry to hear about Jakes passing.

Play happily at the RB sweetheart.

07-15-2004, 06:19 PM
I am so sorry to hear this! Please don't blame yourself. You couldn't have known. I know it must be very hard because it was so sudden. I know Jake is glad you were with him and loved him all these years. No matter how long we have with them, it's never long enough. They're so special to us. Have fun at the RB, Jake. You've got lots of friends to make.

07-15-2004, 06:21 PM
I'm so sorry... :( :( :(

07-15-2004, 06:35 PM
I am so very sorry that Jake's illness has taken him from
this life.:( He must have felt so sick, but of course they always
try to bear up so well so we won't worry about them.:(

Please know that you were a true friend to Jake. I'm sure he
will be right there to greet you someday from Rainbow Bridge.

Rest in Peace sweet Jake, you will be missed sweetheart. :(

07-15-2004, 06:46 PM
This is just so awful. I can't stop crying.

What if we didn't do the right thing? Maybe he would have rather lived a few more days.

What if the lab test was wrong?

When we put him in the car he was just grinning from ear to ear - like he was saying "Thanks for the car ride! I love you!" That was just 5 hours ago and now he's gone.

I can't believe he's gone. Maybe I'm just dreaming.

07-15-2004, 07:00 PM
We're going to take Max and the chis and go to the farm now. Max definitely knows something's wrong. I'll bring him out to play with his new buddies.

Talk to you all tomorrow. Thanks for everything.

Don't blame yourself. It's not your fault. He was happy in the car, and said 'thank you.' He's also happy for you helping him move on.

Rest in Peace Jake.

Jake, you are now at the eternal peace and eternal light garden, with never ending perfect health and harmony with the universe.

I only saw your photo at your mom signature, but I felt as if I knew you, and I loved you, your smile at that photo.

I still love you Jake.

Rest in Peace.


07-16-2004, 11:17 AM
I am terribly sorry stacwase....:( At least he will no longer be in pain and he can look down on you from heaven and wait to see you again at the bridge...:)

RIP Jake, and run safe and freely at the Rainbow Bridge.

07-16-2004, 01:42 PM
I just caught this thread and it's breaking my heart. Poor Jake. Please, please don't blame yourself tho. He had a wonderful life, all the way to the end. You couldn't have done more for him than you did. I'm sure that he put up such a fight, so that you wouldn't worry, because he knew you woudln't want to let him go. Who would?? I think he knew that car ride would be his last, and he was thanking you, for everything. For life, for your love and for letting him go. Try to take some comfort that he is no longer in pain or discomfort. That now, he's running around at the RB with all the other beloved pets, killing time until you come for him. Your family now has one heck of a guardian angel.

RIP Jake! You were loved dearly. Run wild, free and happy at the RB. You will be greatly missed!

07-16-2004, 02:38 PM
I'm so sorry. Jake was a wonderful friend. Remember the good times.


07-16-2004, 07:52 PM
I replied in the other thread also. I am so sorry for your loss.
Please take care.

07-16-2004, 07:54 PM
This is so sad. I am so sorry for your loss.

Rest In Peace, Jake


07-16-2004, 09:15 PM
I'm so sorry. Godspeed Jake.

07-17-2004, 12:34 AM
:( Rest peacefully, Jake.

07-17-2004, 12:38 AM
Rest in peace dear Jake. Please stop and tell my boys Cody and Willie how I miss them and hope they are having fun at the bridge.

Stacey, my deepest sympathies are with you through this tragic time of grief and loss.

07-17-2004, 09:00 AM
...for your loss. I know you must be devasted.

Rest in peace sweet Jake and run free at the bridge.

07-17-2004, 09:54 AM
Stacey {{{Hugs}}} i am terribly sorry. :(

Jake man run free at the RB.

You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

07-17-2004, 10:42 AM
Thank you so very much, everybody, for all of your kind words.

We should be getting Jake's ashes back soon. Last night we were all out at the farm and we think that we want to bury his ashes out there, and make a headstone for him or have one made.

It's odd how good I feel about the cremation - I think I'm happier with that than I would have been burying him without cremating him first.

07-17-2004, 01:30 PM
OMG I had no idea this happened until I read about it in your other thread...I had to read it again! I am soooo sorry!!:( Was it sudden? How terribly awful :(


07-20-2004, 03:32 PM
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Jake! :( He is in a better place right now..

07-25-2004, 11:12 PM
I am so sorry to hear about your dear Jake.
He is healthy again now, running free at the Rainbow Bridge, and watching over you and your family.

07-26-2004, 11:16 AM
Oh no, I just now saw this. I am so sorry!!!!! This just breaks my heart.

Rest in Peace beautiful boy!

08-01-2004, 02:41 PM
I am so sorry for your loss. Because I don't get through the entirety of Pet Talk I often miss significant postings. Maybe it is also because I don't want to deal with the sad news that one can see in Dog Memorial. I understand how very difficult this time can be.

08-01-2004, 10:08 PM
My heart goes out to you in your loss. It is so very difficult.

But when you love an animal so deeply and they love you back.....they are just always with you - Jake just happens to be with you at the Rainbow Bridge though.

Stacey I am so very sorry you have lost your Jake.
