My Lovely Boy Jake

We lost our precious baby boy Chickie suddenly at only 8 years of age. We lost him to kidney failure but many health issues throughout his short life. We were completely devastated and determined never to get "attached" again.

Didn't think I would ever quit crying or missing my baby boy! Determined NOT to look at puppy mills, I began my search online. I found a place that had very high reviews and some beautiful puppies so my husband and I set out one Friday around noon to see these puppies.

After driving around 4 hours, we found the place. You guessed it, no more than a puppy mill! We talked among ourselves before getting out of the car that this place wasn't for us, that we would just look. The lady left about a dozen cocker puppies out of the pen and they just ran wild all over.

They were all soooooo cute! Needless to say, Jake found a new forever home that day!

I didn't think after losing my first boy things would ever be "okay" again, but slowly they are. We tried to crate train Jake at night but after 3 nights of whining he ended up between my husband and I in our king bed and has slept there now the two years we have had him.

I could go on and on about how Jake fills our hearts with love...it must be the cocker personality. They're like no other breed!

RIP Buster Patrick

Hi Michelle,

Your post touched my heart, and I'm sure it will touch our visitors' hearts too.

I'm really sorry you lost your Busty Boy - hang on to his memories, they'll be a great comfort to you. This may sound cliched, but time is a great healer and one day, when you're ready for another Cocker Spaniel, you'll know the time is right.

In the meanwhile, treasure the special moments you had with your loving Busty Boy.

Kind regards,
Pauline

Busty Boy
by: Michelle

Lovely to hear you found a new companion that you adore. We lost our golden boy (buster Patrick) 4 weeks ago and I'm totally devastated beyond words.

I'm afraid to get another in case I don't love him like my busty boy. He was 9 and a half and died in his sleep of lupus.

Your story has given me hope that maybe we can find another beautiful cocker to love and adore xxx

Lovely Jake

Hi,

I'm so sorry to hear about losing your baby boy Chickie. It's so sad when we lose a pet. We become so attached to them that they're soon just like a member of the family and it takes forever to get over the loss (if one ever does).

It sounds like Jake is helping to heal your hearts - Cocker Spaniels can do that, can't they?

Thank you for sharing Jake's story and for those wonderful photographs above.

Warm regards,
Pauline
