My Jade

by Ginny Schad
(St Augustine, Fl )



Jade is 10 years old now and she has been through everything with me. I take her everywhere. I have had some hard times in the last few years but she didn't care; she slept next to me every night except one night when we were in a horrible car accident. We flipped five times and landed in the inter coastal waters. I passed put and she woke me up. Her leg was broke; I could of drowned... In a disgusting, crab infested muddy puddle. It was low tide and dark, off A1A in Florida when we wrecked. High tide was coming in...I drove a huge SUV at the time; it had cypress trees stuck in the front of it. We managed to tuck and roll. We are both fine now. Jade started howling and someone found us. All the windows and sunroof were broken...she could of left me but she didn't. She stayed with her Momma. I went to the hospital and she went to doggie emergency care. They took great care of her. It could have been soo much worse. Jade saved both of us. She is not just my dog, she is my Baboos, and my Angel. I will always adore Jade she is literally a Gem.

The myth of jade:
Jade – a gemstone of unique symbolic energy, and unique in the myths that surround it. With its beauty and wide-ranging expressiveness, jade has held a special attraction for mankind for thousands of years.

Her name is a historic green Japanese Gem stone and she has held up to her name. She will always be my Gem.
