Today has been a bad day. Today I was told my dog has cancer.

Jasper has been my best friend for the past 10 years. He has been my friend when it felt like I had no others. He has been by my side from Canada, to Oregon, to Utah and back to Canada again. He was born a Canadian dog and he will pass away a Canadian dog.

My eyes are swollen from the pain of loving "just a dog" too much. But it's worth it, these dogs give us so much more than we give them.

To Jasper...may the last of your days be filled with lots of swimming, walks, good food and joy; but most of all, love.
