Today I received some difficult and very sad news about my best friend Zachary Jubilee Christensen. He has been sick for a little while and we have tried to get him better with the aid of our Vet's who also love this little guy. Here is a picture of Zach who never wanted to be anywhere buy by my side. He loved our boat and "it was his favorite thing to do". He is amazing in that everything is his favorite thing to do as long as Kathy and I are with him and he's protecting us.

So the hard thing to do is to know that we have to take the pain away from our friend and at that time he will no longer share cheeseburgers, beds, car rides, chasing cats, taking baths, getting groomed and just hanging out with his friends, Sacha and Scooter. My heart is so heavy, and my head is throbbing from the news. He is the most amazing dog I've ever seen. Ask him anything and he would do it. Jump up, lay down, roll over, sit pretty, gimme 5, shake hands, heal, he wanted to please us at every moment as well he ran alpha over the other 2 dogs. They will be sad also now, and I can tell they know as they won't leave Zach's side. I hated the book Ol Yeller, and this is the reason.

Zach was my buddy for 10 years and I wished I had 10 more with him. I keep losing those people I love, and I am so grateful that I know this pain is love, it's the feeling of know how much we love our family and friends. It has changed my heart once again that I do know what is important in life. It's not stuff, or things. It's not power or riches, it's love.
I will love my Zach, everyone that knew him loved him. But we all come to this point where the life we enjoy and take for granted is changed to the life that we dream of. I pray that we gave Zachary every chance to be happy and feel loved all his life.
Kathy and I will miss him, Sacha and Scooter will miss his love and protection.
