It is with great sadness I am letting you know I had to let go of my golden boy Jack (aka Crowley)- who I adopted from SCGRR on May 6, 2016.

Jack was only 10 years old. He started having seizures right after the earthquakes in July. They became more severe and more often, even with medication and my vet did not think expensive tests would be worth the cost and as long as he was comfortable- he would be fine. However, the glaucoma in his eye was growing and within a week a cancer developed on top of his paw that was extremely fast growing.
At 1am he woke me up to go to the bathroom and at 3am he put his face next to mine and let out a soft cry and just let me pet him. I took him out and he didn’t have to go- so I knew he was telling me it was time.

I have never had a dog do that before.So we went to the beach and to Jack in the Box and to the vet for the last time today.

He had just been fixed when I got him- so he was a challenge- but he loved children and loved each kitty we have had. He was very insecure and loved me so much.

I will miss him so very very much. All the neighbors loved him too! I wish he could have had a longer life.
