Our dear friends suffered the loss of their dog, Jake, this past fall. It was a quite sudden downturn from a diagnosis of cancer. They took it really hard, and I felt such pain for them. Last month, they purchased Cooper, a fun loving yellow lab. I finally got to meet him this weekend. I can sense their hearts are not feeling such sorrow. They are still mourning the loss of Jake, but Cooper has added some bounce in their step. I was so happy to finally meet Cooper and to see this family start to heal.
