This is a true story of our dog Jake.

 Jake!


 


He came to me, the night before Valentine’s Day


From my son and his friend


Jake had been abandoned or lost in a thunderstorm


A fur ball of playfulness


For me it was love at first sight


The best little lap dog you have ever seen


We loved Jake like he was one of the family


And when he was about 3 months old


He got real sick, from a generic dog food


The doctor gave him some medicine and a shot


We were all optimistic about him getting well


But that didn’t happen


He got much worse


When I would take him out front to do his business


He would feebly walk to the street and look back at me


He knew he was dying and wanted to run away


When he was in the house he would crawl into the tightest spaces


We were so depressed, we didn’t know what to do for him


Then one day my son said, “Mom, we have to do something, he’s going to die.”


Something inside me went into emergency mode


I jumped up off the couch


I told my son to go buy me some pedialite and a few jars of beef and chicken baby food


In the utensil drawer I had a meat injector syringe


I filled it (after removing the tip) with pedialite


And just like they give pills to horses


I shot the pedialite down his throat


I repeated this every two hours


The next day I put the pedialite in his bowl


He drank the whole bottle of pedialite in two days


And the next day I began the regimen of baby food


I started with chicken and one of my kids baby spoons


He really liked it


And after that we went to the beef


He loved that


The next day we tried the stage three baby food


Which is chunky


And he ate the whole jar!


So, in three days we had our Jake back!!!


He started gaining the weight back that he had lost


And was on the road to recovery


This all happened in 2008


Now it’s 2012 and just look at this beautiful dog we got by chance


He’s a mix Akita and German Sheppard


He is one of a kind


He thinks he’s one of the family


We have given him unconditional love


And in return he has chosen to protect us


I have never owned a dog this amazing


He’s smart, loving, playful, beautiful and loyal


But now, there’s one thing he’s not…


A lap dog!!!

Spirit guides are always with us, they told you what to do. Some people call this "their" inner voice as they have not recognized what it truly is yet. What the vet failed to do (re-hydrate him) spirit stepped in as it was not Jake's time yet. This is marvelous Karen, you listened and took action.

Bless you

Wonderful touching story that touched my heart.

Love and Light
