Cry Jackson was my baby

On March 6, my Jackson had a seizure and died in my arms at home. He was only 7 1/2. If I start at the beginning, Jackson was my special baby from the start. Two weeks after we picked him up, we went back and got his brother Jordan. It was like having to opposites. The angel and devil. After a couple of years, Jordan mellowed and Jackson got even more special. We went on vacation and he got so upset because we boarded him, he almost died. To make a long story short, Jackson was never the typical Yorkie. He wasn't brave like a yorkie. He was heavier and had thicker hair. He was the best little friend and his whole world revolved around loving people. We always joked that Jackson would take the little bus to school. When he couldn't jump on the bed, my dad made steps. When he got a little slower, my dad built bigger steps. My husband put at least 20 nightlights to light Jackson's way at night in the new house. Jackson had allergies and was always a little pudgy. His knee started popping and he would sit and stare into space. We thought it was because of the pain so we scheduled a surgery to fix it. Two weeks before, Jackson had his first seizure. When my husband brought him to the vet, he greeted all his girlfriends and they took some blood. Maybe it was low blood sugar, maybe it was this or that. My husband and I both agreed that Jackson couldn't handle a lot of tests and lets fix his knee first. We thought it could be stress related. On that Sunday morning, Jackson had his seizure. I tried to breathe for him. He died in my arms and the last person he saw was his Mama. Did I mention that my dad was making a ramp for him to get on the bed with us? Our Skeeter and Jordan still miss him. They are doing bettter. I still look for my Jackson. I am used to giving out three treats, counting three dogs and having him lick my feet when I get out of a shower. I know that we did everything that we could and he had an awesome life. Thanks for listening.

My deepest sympathies to you and yours. Jackson is in a happy place, I hope you know that he loves you and is always thinking about you. Thank you for sharing your story. Just know if you need anything don't hesitate to ask.

Kim,

I'm so sorry. I feel your pain all to well. My dogs have and will alway's hold a special place in my heart, as I'm sure Jackson will in yours. He sounds like he was such a sweety and that he lived a much loved life.

Kim, Your story of Jackson was so full of love. He was a lucky dog to have had a life so full and complete. It is clear that you and your family spared no expense and went above and beyond to make his life so wonderful. Know that his body may be gone from your presence, but his little spirit will always live as his memory remains in your heart! Even tho your loss was so great, you were so blessed to have two other fur-babies to help fill the void in your life. We can never get over this type of loss but we can get around it. There will be days when you just can't stop crying...go ahead and cry for him. There will be days when you laugh remembering some funny antic he did...go ahead laugh - he laughs with you. In our lives, in order to be blessed by these wonderful animals, we must also learn to lose them...and that is the hardest part. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this hard time.

Kim, I am so sorry that you lost your baby, Jackson. I cannot imagine your pain, but pray that with time it will get easier and you will only be left with sweet memories of your time with him. They are so precious!

I am so sorry for your loss. Before Sophie became a part of our family, I could not imagine loving a puppy so much. BUt I do - we all do. And losing her would hurt beyond belief.

I'm glad you have 2 other puppies to comfort you.

What a great story, and what a great life Jackson had! Im so sorry for your loss, I love my Bailey soo much and love this forum to discuss all our stories, and funny traits, and even our hardships and tragic losses. The thought of losing my little partner, worrys me to death, but I do know it is inevitable, But it scares me to death, I'm just glad that we have each other to help each other through our pain. Thanks for the wonderful story of Jackson, and you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sad to hear the news regarding your sweet Jackson. How hard for you to have him in your arms at the time. Yet, it probably was a great comfort for Jackson to see you there with him. I shall keep you and yours in our daily prayers and know that we are heartbroken to hear of your loss. On a lighter note, it sounds like your famliy is just awesome, steps, ramps, night lights. Wow, what we do for our sweet little ones, is no less than we do for our 'human' family. God Bless.

I was just able to read all of your wonderful thoughts. It makes me feel better knowing that other people love their babies as much as I do and that I am not crazy for missing him so much. Thank you so very much.
