We had to put "Sparky", our beloved 17 1/2 yr old Jack Russel to sleep in Sept 2017. He's burried in the back yard near his sister who passed away in 2012.
Ole Sparky was my "therapy dog" for my spinal fusion op and a total knee replacement in 2014 and 2015. I figure he and I walked 1500 miles over 4 years in 'therapy'... in the neighborhood. We miss him and his picture goes with us on our travels. We decided we just could not get 'another dog'
