Jake

If you haven't already, meet Jake.



Jake is my miniature Schnauzer pup. He turned 4 years old 2 and a half weeks ago. The past few weeks we have been in and out of the vet with the Jakester. Today, we found out Jake has degenerative kidney disease. The vet told me even with fluids and antibiotics every. single. day. he won't make it any longer than a few weeks. We have to put him down. Tomorrow is spring break, and I am going to Charlotte to visit my family with Matthew. My sister has told me she wants to be there when it happens. I still cannot even believe this is real. It doesn't feel real.

I wish it weren't real.

I don't remember what life was like before Jake. He is the best dog. ever. He helps with my anxiety and wakes my roommate Kate up when she is having nightmares. He just knows things.

I love my little bear.
