My good lookin man :)

Hello all Im Danielle,

I currently do not own a Jack Russell Terrier as mine died June 2007 and since his death Ive had a hard time living without him he was my ENTIRE world and was o so very spoiled. I named him Rex! He had a severe allergic reaction to fleas bites and then that caused him to stress out and eventually a heart attack. Im so sad I think about my baby all the time. I have posted a picture of my beautiful boy. RIP Rex mommy loves you <3

Oh Danielle ! You are so right, Rex was indeed a beautiful, handsome boy.

But as Steph has said,do you really think he would want you to be so unhappy?

I lost my Bearded Collie x, 3 years ago, at the age of 14, and I still miss her dreadfully. However, my Parson jack, Chad missed her terribly too, so I got little Jodie, who is now 2 years old. I love her to pieces. She isn't Tia, and will never replace her, but each dog comes with their own quirky little characters, and you love them for who they are.

All dog lovers have huge hearts, and I am sure that if you found it in yours, to get another little friend, you will love that one too. No, it will never replace Rex, but it certainly helps to ease the grief, and you will love it for its own personality. Please think about it seriously, Danielle.

Let us know if and when you decide to get another dog. I know from experience, that it would help you learn to live with the loss of Rex. I am sure he would want it too.

Lots of hugs

From Elaine

Hello Danielle,

I just read your memorial of Rex. And yes, he was a lovely boy. I am so sorry and sad for your loss.

Please do consider something. I want to tell you a story: Three years ago my Mom and Dad in Texas lost their precious Beara, after "25" years. She was a lovely small blackish-brown chow. She died at home in their arms. I came to visit them with my daughter and dog, as my husband was in Iraq for 14 long months. We stayed about 5 months with them and my Rat Terrier JoyJoy fell in love with my Mom. Not long after my husband came home we were moving next to Belgium, so after lots of tears and heartbreak, I left JoyJoy with them. Needless to say, my Mom will be 75 this year and my Dad 70 and they love JoyJoy to pieces. Shortly after arriving in Belgium I saw a horse farm that raised Jack Russells and I bought one. She is now 2 and 1/2 and I love Ginger so much. I have trained her and also dogsit other dogs here and my life is rich and full.

I pray that you will consider another JRT or mix from a rescue shelter. You will never forget Rex, and I know that he would want you to go on and find another forever poochie too.

So, thank you for sharing with us out here in JRT Land and may GOD bless you with another precious poochie to fill your life with more JOY!
Stef, Belgium, JRT Lover from Texas!
