Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Jackie the Queen
Back on May 20th we had made the decision to put our oldest dog down at age 18, losing my Jack has been about the hardest thing ever for me, losing him felt like I lost a part of myself, after about two weeks of me being in this funk my boyfriend was reading his email and he 'felt' like something was telling him to open the email from adoptapet.com, that's when he saw 'Demi' for the first time who was a mirror of our Jack so he dragged me down to meet this little girl and for me it was love at first sight and like he had said about the email, it felt like something was guiding us to this little dog, I knew I would eventually get a new dog but I never expected it to be so soon after wards of losing my Jack. I went to talk to someone about meeting her and my boyfriend stayed with her to see if she would come and say hi to him. Much to his surprise as soon as I walked out of the kennel area she got right out of her bed and walked up to the gate and gave him her big brown eyes and that's when she caught him, its exactly how Jack had caught him 17 years ago. After another week of waiting we took our two boys down to meet her and we decided to bring her home, we knew right away she was going to be Jackie after the dog that guided us to her, turns out the name fits her just right, she isn't just a mirror of my Jack, they are so much alike down to the way she walks to the temperament she has, she has moments of running with the boys then decides its enough and lies down and sleeps. Its only been a month since I lost my Jack so i still cry a lot and when I do she just climbs right into my arms and cuddles. Just like my Jack she knows what to do, which makes me cry even more, she has only been in my family a little more than a week but she is Jackie the Queen already. Jackie is truly a blessing to our little family, she has pulled me out of my slump with losing Jack and I still believe that Jack wanted her here. Thank you all so much for helping my Jackie was she was there.
