Jazz came into our lives in September 2010, a nervous, skinny wee dog. Our older GSD Kumba took to her immediately and was a calming influence who loved Jazz from the moment he met her.

Unfortunately Kumba passed November 2010 and Jazz missed him terribly. We took her long walks, weekly obedience training and she came on in leaps and bounds. We also adopted another resuce Hugo in Aug 2011.

Well Jazz soon established who was the boss and it certainly wasn't Hugo. Jazz loved going long walks and playing with toys. All my rules for previous dogs went out the window with Jazz, she became my little princess, no dogs upstairs, yeah right, Jazz would sit and whine constantly if I went up to my sewing room without her, it was easier to give in and let her come up and sit on my feet whilst I worked. No dogs on the sofa? Jazz soon esablished her favourite spot beside me on the sofa. She was a pampered princess. I once bought a new rug one and it was only down two days when Jazz chewed the whole of one edge! Bothered? not one bit, I just said " oh well" she's not stopped chewing yet, by the way she never did stop, no rhyme or reason she would go months and then all of a sudden decide to have a chew at a rug, a tv unit, what ever she fancied.

Earlier this year she developed gut problems and for 6 months we tried everything for her weekly B12 injections, enzymes, anti biotics, pro biotics, special diets. However nothing seemed to help and she got skinnier and skinner and quite lethargic for a wee dog who had been and aboslute ball of energy. The vet decided to take biopsies of her intestines and lymph nodes which were inflamed. Unfotunately she went into shock after her operation and her wee body just started shutting down, we had to make the decision to end her suffering.

RIP Jazz I know you are chasing Kumba and playing with him over the Rainbow Bridge.You gave us so much love your dad Hugo and I have all got a special place in our heart for you.

Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.

There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
