I am devastated to say that my true and faithful companion Jesse passed away in the wee hours of the morning.
I was just getting ready for bed, and Jesse didn't jump up to go outside for his evening business. When I called him he staggered a bit. I think maybe he had a stroke. His hind end more or less gave out.
I lay on the floor and held his paw and gently petted him and he just slipped away.
Jesse has been my constant companion. My most serious dread, as a senior, was that I would pre decease him and he wouldn't know or understand why I left him. My heart, while heavy, is relieved that he was loved, fussed over, played with, spoiled and heaped with attention from the beginning to the end of his years. I thank God for the blessing of Jesse's devoted company.
Rest in peace my friend. I'll see you on the other side.
