It's OK Jack,,,,,,,,,
"Good dog Jack"

Grainy photo from a cheap camera but this was Jack's first in the field retrieve. We had walked back into a backwater creek and I was hunting from shore. It was a cripple that he had to swim to and chase down, but he did not give up.




"Pick'em up Jack"

That is the command Jack would hear when it was time for him to do his thing.




An injury last year slowed him down physically but did not diminish his desire one bit. Fitted with a vest to help his flotation, he continued to hunt with me.








The new pup seemed to give him a revived energy even tho he could not keep up for very long at a time.




Yet he was content and we enjoyed each others friendship.






He now overlooks the place we hunted when we got these geese.



Rest in peace Jack



It's OK Jack, it's OK.

Good bye, Jack

Sorry to hear.

It's always hard to loose a faithful companion.

It's clear you have some fond memories. Cherish them.

Dave,

Sorry for your loss.

We all followed Jack's trials a while back and I feel like I knew him just a little bit. I admired his drive and the way he recovered from his injury and I admired the way you showed faith in his strength and rewarded his trust in you. The two of you demonstrated how strong the bond between the hunter and his dog can be.

Dave,
I am glad I had the opportunity to meet you and Jack. I know my kids adored him. If you have time tell us the story of his last hunt as well he overcame a lot with his injury and never lost his desire that says a lot about the dog. My heart goes out to you the time we get with them is never enough.

That just sucks Dave.
Jack was a Great Dog who showed courage in his pursuit of life even after a serious injury.
I can only guess the size of the hole in your house tonight.
Jack,
go in peace with the many others that have gone before you.

Dave, your tribute is too timely.... Moses is failing, will loose him in the next couple weeks. The cancer is agressive... 12.5 years is not long enough with a good dog... look forward to the day when we can join him and the others we have lost... the hunts will be great again.
