not enough words can describe my boy
funny,happy,crazy,big daft boy.
loyal,faithful,fiercely protective and content.
if he ever showed aggression,it was never meant.
house is almost ghostly now,since he passed away
not the happy home ,not like in Jakes day.
he ran rather fast,he could never slow down
hit fences and concrete,caused many a frown.
Jake,my dog a lot can be said
loyal and faithful,our hunger he fed
amazing and loving,funny and mad
he keeps us all going,through good and bad.
fourteen years old,Rottweiler Cross
struts around like he is the boss.
you often wish,they'd last forever
pets grow with you,all of us together
tackles anything you throw on his plate
strong and will full,he is a true mate.
i dread the day,he's no longer here
that's the day all our family fear.
he would last in our memories,of that I'm sure
for a broken heart,there is no cure
grew up with my kids,took all they're madness
sometimes his life has been tinged with sadness.
we took him to the vet,we thought that was it
weren't sure how would take the hit
thank fully he came through,relatively unscathed
his old heart strong through the operation he braved.
we can only hope,he lasts a while
he definitely has lasted the proverbial mile.
An old friend.
this was Jake at his happiest time
lazing about the floor,sleepy time.
rises occasionally for food or a drink
eat from his bowl next to the kitchen sink.
back to the living room for another snooze
happy big dog,never had the blues.
When he was younger we'd walk for miles
benefitted everyone,we got fit,all smiles
when he got old,the frequency would lessen.
it goes with old age,life's long lesson.
he was fun and crazy right to the end
now broken hearts need to mend.
He was photogenic,pleasure to see
hed turn his head when the flash set free.
tried taking his picture,on many an time
hed never sit still,all ended fine.
after many attempts we got some beautiful pics
bribed him with treats,taught him some tricks.
The face melted my heart.
Paid His Dues.
On one night on holiday,Jake protected our home
he chased a housebreaker ,forced him to roam
he charged up the backdoor,Guy nearly had a fit
taking jakes barking,nearly took a hit.
just made it away,dog was so fast
Housebreaker was praying his stamina would last.
Rottweiller Cross ,he was definitely the boss
cat was a sure last,their carry on was a blast.
constant daily battles scraps,mostly mild
on the odd occasion the battles were wild
.the dog won most of the time,due to his size
maybe he was really clever,older and wise.
End of an era,nearly 15 years
my girls and my wife shed lots of tears.
i cried too as he passed away
needless to say,my very worst day.
never be forgotten,never be replaced
too special by far,I miss his wee face.
