Farewell old chum...


A year ago today Jackson passed away, so very peacefully. I think of him often and J2 and I both miss him dearly. We would like to thank you, his blog readers and pals, for all your kind thoughts, messages and gifts, they really did mean a lot to us. We were touched that the musings of a small grumpy dog were enjoyed by so many.

I wanted to end Jackson's blog on a positive note. Many of you already know that in August 2010 we adopted another little dog in need, this time a 2 year old Welsh Terrier who we called Noodles. I think that Jackson would approve.

Much love,

J1 & J2 with Noodles xxx

We didn't know Jackson too well but we read so much about him on other blogs we felt we did know him. And we do know the pain of loss, so we are glad you have adopted Noodles. We too think Jackson would approve.

Jackson could never be forgotten or replaced. He was loved and that is forever. Noodles is very lucky to have found space in such a wonderful home. We are grateful to you for sharing his life with us.

I will never ever forget my special chum Jackson. And will always remember the last bark we had together, square face to square face. Me and the squares were so wagging and honoured to meet him.

Wiry love and licks to the J's and Noodles. Eric and B xxxx

Ahhh our darling boy...we miss him too and can not believe that a year has passed so quickly.. We look at him everyday as we have his postcard on our frig and we remember and laugh at all the fun stories and antics that we shared with him... Love and a gillion kisses A+A+PL2

TwoSpecialWires said...

Great big sigh. We hate farewells. Goodbyes. Au revoirs. Whatever. Always have. Always will. So ... we pretty much refuse to acknowledge them. And in Jackson's case, it's okay. 'Cause we know he will always always be in our hearts and we believe (and oh so hope) that we will meet him one day. In the meantime we know, without a doubt, that the love that he shared continues on. In the heart of his friends. And in the hearts of his family. You. And now, you and Noodles. It is just as it should be. And it is just as he would want it.

So ... we'll be back, buddy.
You can count on it.

We will never forget that good-looking wiry dog! OH MAN< I don't think I've met Noodles yet. I must head over to his blog right now & say HI.

Dewey Dewster said...

Gee Jackson was sure an inspiration ta us all.....he is likely runnin' free with all those special pets who arrived at the bridge before 'em. We sure miss him......

We also think that Noodles is one very lucky dog.....'n Jackson would certainly approve too....

Thanks for this wonderful blog dedicated to a wonderful dog. Sounds like he spent his last wonderful years with you and couldn't have had better owners. Hope all is well with your new dog!
