We got Jax back today. Although, I would"ve much rathered picked him up healthy, and full of energy instead of in a box. There is no way of preparing yourself for picking up your dog's ashes and pawprints. I feel better knowing that he is back home. It eases the pain, but it doesn't go away. We have set up a memorial in our bedroom for Jax since that was his favorite place to be. We put his ashes beside a picture of him with his collar and we are lighting a candle beside it at night. The veternarian office has been wonderful in handling everyhing. Even though Jax has passed , I am thankful for the last few months that the vet gave him with us. Our lives have changed without him here. You don't realize all of the little things that they do until they're not with you anymore. I have caught myself several times expecting to see him in a spot and him not being there. Our vet and the crematory facility did a good job honoring our last wishes for Jax. I had a peace of mind when I read the certificate stating that Jax was cremated on July 1st, and when I noticed that the urn box, pawprints,.and even the bag that everything was in said Jax's name. We love Jax and he will be forever missed.

But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close we two these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.


Thanks for sharing this poem.

Jax loved the car. The picture that I posted was the last picture that I took of him. It was 4 days before we lost him. He laid down in the front seat the entire we were riding around. He sat up when we turned into our neighborhood.

Default I am so sorry for your loss

I lost my girl Sadie in November (201 and Tucson in December 2018 and it hurt so bad, I did not want to go on. Sadie we had lost due to a misunderstanding and mistaken ID in New Mexico with the law and she ran off into the desert. Four years after writing to vets in that area and looking for her (we had moved to Texas) my husband goes online and she is at a pet rescue. We drive over night to pick her up and she is with us for five more years and she passes.

Tucson I had with me for 10 years. He was with me as a puppy when Sadie disappeared (he was in his cage when the "incident" occurred). He was with me through sorrow and through joy. We drove to my husband's brother's house for Christmas dinner, I had made dinner at home, because my son did not want to go. My son made his boxer Jake and my Tucson a special dish with left over chinese fried rice, their food, and he put in ham and ham glaze. My Tucson (probably) ate with gusto, then they went out to play and chase a ball. An hour later (we were home by then) and they were outside, when Tucson started to retch. He threw up until no more could come out. I rushed him to the vet but it was too late. His stomach had twisted on itself and it choked his organs. There was no saving him. I was devastated. I had to put him down and I held him as he left this world, saying "baby, take me with you. I don't want to live without you at my side." I cried until I could cry no more. That was Christmas night. I went into a depression so black, I could not function.
A month later, my husband told me I needed to take my son and drive to Galveston; he had bought me a male Boxer puppy. I did not want to go, I fought him. But in the end, I took Jake and my son and we drove from Richmond to Galveston. When I saw the puppy, I fell in love and named him Tahoe Joe, after a restaurant I met my husband at in Bakersfield.
He has become my constant companion. While I still miss Tucson and Sadie and grieve for them daily, Tahoe has eased my pain, because he demands so much attention and love.

What I recommend is in time, get yourself a rescue puppy, or even go to a reputable breeder (I love Boxers!) and get yourself another companion.
God bless you!

Default So sorryfor your loss

I lost my Travis about a month ago and have cried everyday hiding it from everyone. I found out what heart break really is. A part of me died with him . I too held him and felt his last breath . I served as an Airborne Ranger with two tours in Vietnam ,and Africa. Saw lots of death lost mother father sister and three brothers but nothing bothered me as mush as losing Travis. I understand how you feel. Try to remember all the good times and the love you gave to him that no one else could. Share that love with another Boxer and they will love you right back.

I am sorry for the loss of all of your boxers. I am having a hard time with Jax not being here. I try to be strong in front of the kids though. There is not a day that goes by that we don't talk about Jax, or laugh about something that he did. It gets easier with time, but the hole is always there. I would love to get another boxer in time, but my family is on a another path than I am.
My husband and kids are afraid of getting another boxer. So, they are wanting to get a Siberian Husky some time down the road. Boxers will always have my heart and will be my favorite breed. Our beagle/daschund is doing good, but our daschund is missing him. The 'Dagle" Belle doesn't have anything to do with the daschund Oscar so in time we will get him another friend. Just not anytime soon.
