Jaxson Aka Jax
4/14/2003 - 5/30/2013In loving memory of Jax, my perfect baby boy. He entered my life on May 23, 2003 and brought me such joy and taught me the true meaning of friendship and unconditional love. He was the last gift my mom gave me before she died and we shared ...the last special weeks of mom's life together. He has brought me through life's tough trials and tribulations and always offered me comfort and peace. Yesterday I offered him comfort and peace as he crossed rainbow bridge. My baby boy spent the last year of his life fighting congestive heart failure. He was diagnosed in July 2012 and by September was given 2-4 weeks to live. We sought the assistance of a specialist who was just as devoted as I was to keeping him alive and giving him the best last months any furbaby could hope for. My baby lived 8 more months. He was such a fighter. There were so many times we believed he was "getting close" and he'd turn around in an instant. On Wednesday evening our vet told us his kidneys were failing and there was fluid building in his lungs that we couldn't treat without blowing his kidneys. We took him home that night and spent the final day of his life with him. It was a glorious day! He was very tired and weak the first half of the day but the minute his daddy got in the shower, my baby realized what we were about to do and hopped up to play with us during his final hours. He played fetch, we went to the park and he even got cheeseburgers! He was so happy! Seeing him so happy made me want to keep him, but I knew it was only a few days, if not hours, before he started to suffer again. I wanted him to go with happy memories of his last day. I have been devastated since Wednesday. I couldn't imagine life without him. He will always be my baby boy and best friend. Run free of pain sweet angel! RIP 4/14/03-5/30/13 Until we meet again....Angela TalloHumble, TexasJune 1, 2013

Hi Little buddy, Just thinking about you. All of your toys and food / water bowls are right where we left them. I don't have the heart to move anything just yet. I'm carrying your toy with me everywhere I go and hoping it keeps your smell for a long time to come. I cannot express how much I miss you. My heart aches. I know you are running free, happy and healthy, and I am at peace knowing that. I just miss my best friend.
Love, Mommy

Jax seemed like such a blessed family member. He have you such joy and love over the years. Plus, he enriched your lives. He was a true best friend. And, such an appropriate handsome feller as the best man to your wedding. Rest assured he is at peace in heaven. You will see him soon 1 day.
