Goodbye Jack

C'mon boy, let's go.

Feeling pretty bad

Feeling like I lost the best friend
That I ever had

Jack is dead. Jack was running down the road and got hit by a kei-truck that didn't stop. I wasn't there and don't know the details, but I have a feeling my anger would be uncontrollable if I did.

Jack was a great companion and I feel his loss intensely.

Oh I am so sorry to read this. RIP Jack. I hope you also have peace with your great memories of your friend!

Thanks Gia.

It's going to take a while to be reconciled to this.

So sorry for your loss! Will justice be served?

Rod said...

Unlikely. Jack's other human, who surely knows the facts, has no interest in divulging them. I am on the lookout for a kei-truck with a tell-tale ding in the front but not seen so far. The lesson for me is that if a good sort of stray dog appears at your gate, take him in quick.

Now I'm having to devise my own fartlek routine. Among his other sterling characteristics, Jack was a very good fartlek coach.
