In the midst of sorrow
Jaq showed a slight dragging of his right hind leg after jumping for a ball Saturday morning.  Around noon we took him to the emergency room where he was diagnosed with a  herniated disk in his middle spine.   By 5 PM he was paralyzed from the lower chest down.  By 6 AM Sunday we had no choice but let our beloved Jaq go. 


......................Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright;
the band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
and somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
but there is no joy in Mudville — since Jaq's joyful light's gone out.

I fear Mudville will forever be without JOY
without my beloved Jaq -

shamless slumber by Cmac13

1-23-17 After three months of grieving Jaq I've come to understand I've experienced unconditional love twice -
once with a cat named Katjke and now with a dog named Jaq.

I don't believe unconditional love, between human adults - even love partners - is a healthy process.  And it's not been the norm for me in my pet relationships, of which there have been many. 

But when it does occur - it's magical.

The reason it's becoming abundantly clear that pet ownership increases the joy and length of life is because it's incredibly beneficial to feel you are a person of significance in the eyes of something that loves you back unconditionally.

Since I've decided - long before the loss of Jaq, too free myself from the responsibility of pet ownership - I fear it's a loss I'll feel for the rest of my life.  Unless, of course, I change my views and again invest in the daring experiment of searching for unconditional love.

Thank you for the fave, Carole!! By the way, our cat Long is the father (and a very good father, too), and the mother is his new partner. They take turns staying with the kittens, and he grooms them as much as she does. I didn't realise male cats did this.....
