Heaven has a New Angel - RIP Jeffie


Jeffie
2006 - 2015

Jeffie passed away Monday, October 26 in my arms on the way to the vet.  He fought a righteous fight with Leptospirosis and liver failure.

I promise to tell you more about his illness when my heart will let me.  Thank you all for your support, good wishes, prayers and love.

  7. We just found out about Jeffie from our friend Dakota. Although we weren't acquainted before now, we wanted to come by and tell you how very sorry we are for your loss. Jeffie is beautiful and I can see his sweet disposition in his eyes. We don't need to have known you before this to feel pain for your loss, and we are crying along with you. We know the heartbreak of loss and we're heartbroken for you. Please know we will keep you in our prayers.

  21. I've been thinking about you all day. I'm so, so, so sad about this. It's just not fair. Like our Abby, Jeffie got screwed on quantity of life, but not on quality. He was so lucky to find you, as you were lucky to find him. It's part of the hard deal of loving a pet - they give us so much joy when they are around that the devastation when they're gone is hard to bear. But know that lots of us are trying to help bear the pain with you. I know that some day you'll remember him with more smiles than tears. I know that day seems far away right now, but all you can do is slog through the days until you get there. Sending big hugs.

    1. Lepto is wicked. We vaccinate for it, but as our vet said: it is out there and it is everywhere. Poor Rudy and Rosie are sick of me checking to see if they are sick :-)

  36. Oh, Sue... I am so sorry. This was all so sudden. Mary Hone shared the bad news with me when I saw her the other day.

    This has prompted me to look into the disease more because, as you know, Chester and Gretel go hiking all of the time so they are at risk of Lepto.

    1. Shockingly sudden. Be afraid, Jessica. Be very afraid. Lepto is wicked. We vaccinate for it because we live in the country with lots of wildlife, however it is present in cities as well. And it is highly contagious. There are over 230 strains of it. Chester and Gretel are definitely at risk.

  38. You were right there with him when he left, you were doing everything you could. He knew he was loved. I hope that brings you some small measure of peace. I am so sorry for your heartbreak, Sue. (((hugs)))

  39. To all of you - thank you for your good thoughts, prayers, hugs and support. I still feel shocked that this happened to my sweet boy. And I know I will miss him always.

  40. I have not had a chance to stop over and say how very sorry we are. Lepto is such a terrible thing. You can immunize and still dogs can get sick. For us it is one of the scariest of diseases. Do you have any idea where Jeffie contracted it?

    1. Thank, Linda. Yes. Jeffie contracted it right here at home.
