Missing You Always Capt. Jack


  • @agilebasenji:

    I'm so, so sorry. I think everyone here knows you'd have done what you could for Jack. He was in pain and he's not now. He's happy and looking out for you. I know he tried to be a good dog. And when you're ready he'll send you the right dog.

    What a great statement… "When you're ready he'll send you the right dog"... that is so very true.....


  • May Jack rest in peace. You did all you could. Cancer can manifest itself in many forms and many behaviors. He loved you so pure he protected you at all costs.

    I will miss hearing of Jack here. His, and your, trials and tribulations will forever be here, in the written word and in my heart as well.

    Thank you for touching me so deeply and reawakening the compassion of love, and loss. Dawn


  • Thanks for ALL your support…I really needed it!! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! I want you to all know that ill still be here and posting with all of you because I will ALWAYS be a Basenji Mommy...And SOON, I will hear that Baroooroooo in my home again!!!


  • Oh, this has been awful.
    Sorry for your loss.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. I know how you loved him and worked with him after Aiden was born. Whatever has happened, know that you have lots of love and sympathy from may of us. Losing a young one is truly heartbreaking.

  • Again - my sincere sympathies. I'm glad that Aiden is OK. I feared Jackers was aggressive with your baby. With deep sorrow, I feel for your sudden loss and decision. You did what was best for Jack. He was a beautiful boy who will live on in your heart and soul through fond memories.


  • Really sorry for you and your familly for the loss of Jack!


  • So sorry for your loss! You are in my thoughts.


  • i woke up thinking about little jackers and all the joy and pure love he shared with the world…and how you shared it with the forum...may his memory be a blessing.

  • Oh man sometimes it's tough to come back to the forums after my weekends. Love and hugz to your family as you begin your healing process. Jack will be missed. Be as happy as you can that he is in a place now where he doesn't have to hurt, and can be at peace. May your family heal quickly from this loss of a dear beloved member.


  • Oh my….I've been on vacation and away from a computer for a week. What a shock to come back to. I am so very sorry. I've been visiting this forum for a year...first as a silent observer before we got Cory and Jayden...and then out in the open. There are so many dogs here that I feel like I know as if they lived next door. Jack was definitely one of those. This news brought tears to my eyes and I am so very sorry for you. A big big hug from Georgia.

  • My heart is breaking just reading your post. I'm so sorry for your lose.


  • We have followed your progress with Jack through new baby adjustments to your horrid neighbors. My heart aches for your loss, but my heart completely sank when you tried to take on the blame.
    It is obvious through all of your previous posts that you went above & beyond what any average human being would to give this dog a wonderful life in this world. And all I can think is God must have had a hand in this… perhaps putting him to rest now prevented a slow, painful end. You had him during his best years, and he helped welcome your baby into this world. He gave you everything he could, and in return you had the heart to recognize his pain and the courage to help prevent prolonging it. You are clearly a wonderful person, and you did everything you could for him. Our prayers are with you.


  • Thank You all very Much!


  • I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. You have our prayers and our deepest sympathies.


  • It is so hard to loose a trusted friend. I can sympathize with how you feel as I lost my kind, gentle, furry non basenji friend last week The hurt is incredible, your heart breaks and tears flow. You did the best you could for Jack you gave him a home full of love and I know he thanked you for that.
    Remember the rainbow bridge and you will meet again some day. They come into our lives and we never seem to have enough time with them but with their passing they leave their footprints on our hearts

    Well said. My heart goes out to you, Kira. Much love.


  • After reading the reason for Jack's crossing over, I had a hard time seeing through the tears, I had to reply again – don't blame yourself for any of this. You gave Jack all you had and then some. Cancer is a tough thing to deal with in an animal (I know from a previous experience) and a tough thing to find and treat. I think you made the right but tough decision. Jack is now playing with all our previous friends and having a good time but will be waiting for you when your time comes.
    Prayers again for you and your family.

  • I'm new to this forum so I didn't get to know Jack through the posts but I know from previous experience that cancer can be a tough thing to deal with in a dog. I am very sorry for your loss and the pain you've been through.

    Believe me, cancer causes a lot of pain and irritation for a dog so you can be relieved that Jack will no longer have to deal with that. Further, cancer can cause a lot of behavioral symptoms without a lot of outward physical symptoms so you should not blame yourself for either Jack's biting or not finding the cancer sooner. It may not have been medically possible to find it any sooner.

    My prayers for you and for Jack. Know that his spirit will always be with you and he is looking down on you and smiling his wrinkley faced smile.
