What a wonderful tribute to a beautiful, loving companion.

Jack was a good companion and his passing is a loss; your blog is a great capsule of his life.

I recall his almost inexhaustible energy, his instinctive retrieving of whatever was thrown, until he just could not run any more...and so would then just lie down with whatever he had retrieved to catch his breath.

I remember the first time I met Jack. Christi took him out to exercise by throwing a "duck substitute" that he would retrieve. Throw after throw he ran out and brought it back. After what seemed like a few hundred retrievals he began to tire and the trips back took longer as the direct line became an arc - the great circle route back.

He tired but he didn't stop. I never saw a dog with so much heart.
