Today we REMEMBER the wonderful, kind and intelligent boy JASPER!
This truly is a CELEBRATION of JASPER’S life! One full of love from the moment he was born! JASPER fell into the right hands of his Mum Amanda and would have the best life any doggy could possibly lead!
JASPER was here to support, to love and to keep his family super busy! He would be on this Earth for just under six years, not long, but long enough to pack in a life time of adventures and teachings!
JASPER was a doggy who not only enjoyed his own life to the full but a doggy who was here as an emotional support dog! He shared his unconditional love throughout his stay on this Earth and without him, life would not have been as easy for Amanda!
There is no point saying how gorgeous JASPER was! You can see for yourself, oh go on then! Oh my Goodness, how gorgeous were you JASPER! Not that it matters, all doggy’s are beautiful, its your heart that we are most interested in – but seriously you were so handsome too!
JASPER was born on a farm in Carlisle. You know what they say about FARM DOGS? They have a passion for their jobs, whether that is guarding, herding, or something else and the something else in JASPER’S case was working as a supportive family doggy!
JASPER was there during Amanda’s Mum’s terminal illness. Living in a nursing home she was adjusting to her journey – a brave journey that required the love of someone extra special! JASPER was the guy who could do this! As soon as he met Amanda’s Mum he instinctively knew that he needed to be a very good boy! He knew she needed his love but even as a puppy was as good as gold when he spent time with her!
When back at home he knew this was time he could expel all of his wonderful energy!
Loving everything and everyone, JASPER grasped to each day with enthusiasm and a natural way of accepting all life could show him!
Amanda told us JASPER was getting his personality, showing his very cheeky side. He began to eat the house but with such a cute face, he would get away with it as ‘butter wouldn’t melt!’ Although getting away with mischief JASPER needed a little training – oh we love you JASPER!
Some doggy’s are people doggy’s and some are doggy doggy’s (hope this makes sense!) but for JASPER he was a people and a doggy person. He began PUPPY SCHOOL with gusto and was noted to be extremely clever for his age. JASPER absolutely loved his DOGGY DAYCARE SCHOOL and couldn’t wait to see his school mates!
Oh yes! JASPER loved his teddy’s too!
Amanda says ‘he was there the day my Mum died and I needed the biggest cuddle ever! Dog’s know when you are upset and he certainly comforted me in my hours of need! JASPER was special and his eyes looked into your soul – when you spoke to him, his head would turn as if it say, Yes, I know what you’re saying to me Mum!’
Now in his almost six years, JASPER managed to pack in many holidays! His holidays would involve lots of walking as he needed to be at one with the nature of this Earth! He had fabulous times away in Scotland, The Lake District and Wales and loved every single minute of his trips!
The love of life! JASPER you had a gift for understanding the treasures some miss in their lives!
Life wasn’t always plain sailing for JASPER as he had his own physical health problems. One being a skin condition which also effected his immune system. Not a cheap boy to keep at the vets as far as cash was concerned but if you worked out how much love JASPER gave, it was a no contest!
Even after he was diagnosed with Cancer, JASPER’S love kept shining throughout his illness. He managed to carry on enjoying the best life he could even though he had to be in the vets often and on medication.
JASPER continued to make his family laugh every day! He never stopped showing his fun side throughout his life both when he was well and when he wasn’t feeling quite as healthy!
For a fun loving boy, CHRISTMAS was a great time! Every present JASPER received, he loved totally, it could have been squeaky pig toys, tennis balls, teddy’s, anything! Amanda and her family have wonderful memories of Christmas with him opening his presents on the big day!
Earning his Angel Wings early at the age of almost 6, JASPER left a year ago to start his news adventures over the wonderful RAINBOW BRIDGE!
He has had time to settle and will be running with the packs with a new leash of life!
JASPER you were truly here to hold our human hands, to teach, to love and ultimately show other’s how to enjoy the lives they have!
THANK YOU JASPER! THANK YOU FOR YOUR BEAUTIFUL SOUL!
Amanda it has been an absolute privilege to write a little REMEMBERING story for your beautiful boy!
Of course we have fallen in love along the way!
We send you love and hugs and woofs and hope one day in the near future you can start sharing all the love you have to give to another doggy who is waiting to find lots of joy in their lives! On that day, JASPER will be watching you and saying ‘I told you Mum, you have plenty of love to give!’
