4/17/2002 - 1/10/2015After being diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma on July 15, 2014, our baby boy, Jasper, was brought to the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday, January 10, 2015. His beautiful spirit passed quietly and peacefully at home with his mommy and daddy, his baby sister, Sophie, and his baby brother, Philippe, by his side.

Although the last 6 months have been very special as we walked with him on this difficult journey, we will always remember the fun and happy times we shared with him over the past 12 and a half years - swims at Round Valley Reservoir; hikes at Sourland Mountain, Hacklebarney, and Jockey Hollow; dog park visits to see his canine friends - especially Joey Hayes; and quiet times at home hanging out with his family.

We feel very lucky to have had Jasper in our lives during all those years. He was a fun playmate, a protective older brother, a loyal companion, an eager little helper, and a true best friend. His caring and compassionate soul and gregarious spirit are what made everyone love him.

Goodbye for now, baby boy. We ask that you always be with us in spirit until we meet again on the Rainbow Bridge. We love you with every beat of our hearts.

We will miss you Jasper..Stacy Chivers - January 21, 2015
Oh Jasper. I'm so glad I got to meet you. Such a happy & playful puppy; and ofcourse I loved you too in that moment. You were always on my mind when Mommy 1st said you were sick. But no more pain now for all us, but there 's an empty space in our hearts now that no one could ever fill. But know that mommy, daddy, Sophie, & Phillipe will always love you. And we'll all be together again one day. So I hope you get to meet up with my dad, my Momma, & Spooky because there's plenty of room on that old couch of ours for you too.

I'm sorry I never got the chance to meet you, Jasper - from what I've heard, you were an awesome pup! You hung in there like a trooper over these last six months and brought so much joy to your family over the last 12 years. To say you'll be missed is a huge understatement. See you on the other side, my friend. <3Patty Youngclaus - January 15, 2015
