Missing Jeter at almost 5 months

I still miss my Jeter....the pain has dulled somewhat but I still have an ache in my heart, an empty place. The other 3 dogs help to ease the pain but Jeter was such a one of a kind companion that I don't think any other dog can take the place that he had.....he was such a gift.....sometimes I still cry when I think too deeply about him....I just want him back....What I would give for one more day with him, without the pain he was in at the last so he could play and bounce around again.

When I think of my own mortality, I am comforted by the thought of Jeter being on the other side to meet me....I know if he can be-he WILL be. That makes it not so scary and almost something to look forward to when the time comes. His buddy Griffey is getting up there in years and I dread the loss of him. It is almost a curse for we who love pets with the depth that I love mine but it's also one of the greatest blessings we have been given.....I don't think I'll ever get over losing my Jeter....my heart will always carry the scar.
