I’m reposting this piece because today my sister contacted me to tell me that Jag has passed away. He was a beautiful part of my sister’s family, my sister calls him “her third son.” I’m a firm believer that when we own animals, they are not just animals – they are family. Jag was so sweet to my boys when we visited my sister in 2010 – he was welcoming, warm and loving. Jag let the boys throw him a stick or ball for hours and put up with constantly being petted and handled. He took care of the boys too – slept with the boys on the floor and watched over them. So long Jag – you were a cherished and loving part of the family. Click below for original post and more pictures..
