Last Will and Testiment of a Dog

Interestingly enough, last weekend we found this Last Will and Testiment on a friends blog.  At the same time Jake came into our lives.  Jake wandered into our friend Jills yard.  Hungry, ragged, boney and charming all at once.

We tried to find his home but by the way he looks, there is a huge lack of care going on.  So Jill brought him to our place to fatten up and see how he does socially.

 If there is anyone within the area of Utah, Colorado, Arizona who would be willing to bring this fine boy into your homes.  Please email me jamiesyra@msn.com for more info.
My Vickie thinks he is about two years old but we will know more after he goes to the vet for a check up and all his vaccinations.  WE will keep you posted.

Oh Bert you got my MOM with this one, both Jake and the poem.
I think she is giving it some serious thought. If only that one person would let her bring home Jake to our home it would be a done deal I’m sure. But we must wait to hear back from him.
Our prayers are going up for Jake and for right heart and home for him. Blessings to you and your Vickie for helping him, you two really are sent straight from heaven.
Blessings,
Goose

georgia little pea said...

that is the best will and testament i have ever read.

it makes me feel guilty too, that we haven't picked up another dog as a friend for Georgia, and to take Rufus's place on our floor [since he couldn't fit on our lap]. life is such that it's hard to make another commitment right now. sigh. sigh sigh.

i hope your new friend finds a home in time for Christmas.

Bert,

That was so sad and so sweet and true all at the same time, it's a great way to think about the loss of a pet and give hope to all those just waiting for their forever homes....

I'm so happy Jake found his way to you and that he's now getting the love he deserves - paws crossed that his forever home will find him too!!

Give Jake a waggy hug from me,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Leslie said...

Oh he's beautiful, Bert. Thank your Vickie for taking care of him.

The Last Will brought tears to my eyes. It's perfect and heartbreaking at the same time.

I'll be sharing your post to help find this handsome new friend of yours a home. But thank you again for taking care of him for now.

Definitely a tear jerker. I will pass that message of the "last will" on. Hopefully that boy beauty there will find a loving forever home!
