My love...my life...JACK
In loving memory of our JACK DAVIS a GIFT from GOD who we love so much.
JACK DAVIS will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever.
9 years ago...your brother's Jake, Joey and myself drove to Oregon to take you away from that heartless breeder. They said they will euthanize you because you are not "PERFECT"! I told them, please hold on I am coming for you.
I left your brothers inside the car while I walk inside that area where there were so many dogs like you...my heart was founding because I couldn't find you, afraid that the breeder couldn't wait and euthanized you. I glanced at that play pen where you and the others were playing...to my surprise, you came running to me with a smile in your face, as if you knew that I am your mother, who loves you unconditionally.
I picked you up and you hanged on to me as if you telling me "please mom, take me home". I held you from Jacksonville, Oregon driving to our home in Sparks NV.
You were only 4 weeks then, I asked the breeder to hang on to you until you are at least 8weeks old so you can get some nutrients from your mom's milk. But the breeder said no...that was okay, before we went home we stopped at Pet Smart and bought some feeding bottles for dog your age... and we went to Wal-Mart to get you (human) baby formula....Everyone in the store LOVES you and how cute you were.
You were awake all those times that we were driving. When we arrive in the house you were shy at first, but your brother's Jake and Joey showed you around. You were very small to catch up, but they are patient with you.
The first night you were crying, I thought maybe you were missing your litter so I put you where Joey was laying and he immediately cuddle on to you and the rest was history.
The next day, I took you to Dessert Hills Animal Hospital, Dr. Brook examined you...She said, you were an inbreed, you have that over-bite that will give you so much dental and breathing issues, and that your life span is only 1-3 years tops! I was heart broken and started to cry. I asked her how can I make you live longer...she said, it will be a miracle if you live longer than 3yrs unless there's a reason why you need to live more than your life expectancy with your disabilities.
Yes, there was a reason why you came into my life...you were there in my darkest moments, you were there when I want to end my life because I am about to surrender to those difficulties I encountered. But, each time I tried you for some reason knew and you NEVER left my side.
You always stared at me...maybe telling me that how much you love and you will not leave me until its time when God calls you back home. 6 years of that 9 years was the awful years of my life... the last two years life is better, and its getting better each day...then, you suddenly got sick, it went so fast and I thought I am going to loose my mind when you took your last breath in my arms.
December 15, 2016 at 6PM, God called you and he was waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge beyond the rainbow that he prepared with care so when our pets must leave us we'll know that they are there waiting...
In that special sanctum where they can rest and play, knowing we will see each other again in some joyous day.
Our bond will be renewed just as it was before; the undying love for each other I cannot ask for more. It will not going to be the same in our house my son, your brothers are very sad and mourning for you. But, I promise them that we will all see each other again.
Jack, you taught me so much...you taught me how to forgive and forget. You taught me how to prioritize what is important and what is better for our lives. You taught me how to love unconditionally.
I pray for such a Heaven for in my heart I know wherever He does take them - that's where I want to go. Until we meet again my son.
My son, I will bring your ashes to the catholic church of Little Flowers in Reno, from there I will keep your ashes at home in your favorite area at home by the fire place in the living room where we all watch TV. So you can still join me and your brothers when we watch our favorite TV shows.
I love you very much my dearest son...Until we meet again.
JACK A Loan From God
God promised at the birth of time, a special friend to give, his time on earth is short, He said, so love him while he lives. It may be for eight or ten years, or only two or three, but will you, till I call him back, take care of him for Me?
A wagging tail and cold wet nose, and silken velvet ears, a heart as big as all outdoors, to love you through the years. His puppy ways will gladden you, and antics bring a smile, as guardian or friend he will, be loyal all the while. He'll bring his charms to grace your life, and though his stay be brief, when he's gone the memories, are solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return, but lessons only a dog can teach, I want you each to learn. I've looked the whole world over, in search of guardians true, and from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you. Whatever love you give to him, returns in triple measure, follow his lead and gain a life, brim full of simple pleasures.
Enjoy each day as it comes, allow your heart to guide, be loyal and steadfast in love, as the dog there by your side. Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain, nor hate me when I come to call, to take him back again?
I fancy each of us would say, dear Lord, thy will be done, for all the joys this dog shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may, and for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay. But should the angels call for him, much sooner than we've planned, we'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If by our love we've managed, God's wishes to achieve, in memory of him that we have loved, and to help us while we grieve. When our faithful bundle departs this earthly world of strife, we'll get yet another pup, and love him all his life.
A Time to Remember
They come into our lives for such a short time, a time we wouldn't trade not even for a dime. Then before you know it the years have flown by and then all of the sudden we're saying good-bye.
It wasn't that long ago we said our good-byes, we held on to you tight as you closed your eyes. Your spirit has flown home on the wings of a dove, into God's loving arm's in heaven above.
Over the days we've shed many tears, but the memories we have will live on for years. We feel your presence and we know that your near, you're keeping us safe and calming our fear.
We think about memories from years past, when you were young and strong and ran so fast. We remember all the great times that we all had, wow you always made us happy and never made us mad.
They were the best and happiest 9 years we had, we'll always look back on them and never be sad. We look forward to the time we'll be together again, and we thank the Lord for such a great friend.
Now you run and play up in Heaven above, cradled in God's arms covered with his love. Playing by the Bridge waiting for the day we come down thru the meadow to the bridge to stay.
The love that you showed us we'll never forget because to us you're one very special pet. You're like a star in the dark of night, always watching over us with the Lord's light.
So now we take time to remember our best friend who will always be with us, even to the end. We'll always remember you the way you were, one big lovable huggable pile of fur.
JACK 3 MONTH OLD
A POEM FOR MY MOM..."MARIA DAVIS"
A POEM FOR THE GRIEVING...
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die...
I am always near you and my brothers, stop crying and being sad, I want you happy...I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK...JACK!
Mom, I will be here waiting for you..
Mom.. "You Did Me a Kindness"
When my legs grew too weak to carry me,
And my tired eyes could no longer see,
When it pained me to struggle for each new breath,
When my heart beat weaker, and I drew closer to death,
You did me the kindness of letting me go.
You didn't make me hang on when I was suffering so.
I promise I don't think that you loved me any less,
And I love you all the more for your selflessness.
You freed my spirit from its body so wracked with pain,
And let me run the fields of Heaven, where I'm sure we'll meet again.
