Jake The Weather Dog - Crosses The Bridge

Today, our good cyber-pal Jake crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  He was pawtastic friend and grrreat blogger during the hay-day of Dog's With Blogs.  We became very close cyber-chums during those days.  We feel their hoooman's pain and wish we could make it go away.  We do know it is good to look back and remember.

The Barkalot Boys first post was on 20 June, only ten days after our first post.  The joined the DWB family on 23 June 2007 as number 514, while we joined on 17 June 2007 as number 506.  Then factor in that our hoomans are both Red Bird Fans and they live a couple hours north of us in Broward County, while we are in Key West, Florida.  They found us around 29 July of that year.  We became chums and have followed their adventures ever since.  We especially appreciated those reports from Jake the Weather Dog during Herricane season. 

Essex remembers going to Myra's wedding with JH on 6 April 2009.  They helped comfort us when Deacon passed in 2011.  If it wasn't for the lightning and extra stormy weather, we would have met in pawson, when Dog Dad picked up Sherman from Holmhaven.   We know that Deacon was there to meet Jake when he crossed.

With Dog Dad, we do a twenty-one woof salute for our chum.

"Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof -- Woof, Woof, Woof."

Dog Speed on your journey across the rainbow bridge dear friend. 

Here is the link for their blog.  We a know a kind word or two will be greatly appreciated.

Essex, Sherman & Dog Dad

Joe, Thank you for this warm post about my Jakey.

I know you've been through this too and know this awful pain is the price we pay for all the love and joy our furkids give us.

Jake will be trying to solve the mysteries of storms from his new celestial perch

Was very very very sorry to see that Jake had to go. But we know he has many friends there and someday he and his humans will be together again.

Very sad. We didn't know Jake but we went over to say good-by. :(
