Jasper was not just a dog, nor just a family pet. He was a friend. Not just a friend, one of the best friends my family will ever have. He was gentle, quiet and loyal. He would follow you around everywhere. When my other dog Max was just a puppy, Jasper looked out for him. One of the funny times we had was when my mum took Jasper out for a walk, the lead slipped from her hand, and since he was so quiet, she didn't realise he was gone!


 He had bad back problems so he had to have a big operation. Thankfully he survived. he really loved walks. Many years later he started getting very thin. We could not get him to eat. He drank bowls of water and kept getting sick. We brought him to the vet and he had an operation. We thought he was cured.


He started eating again. But, he always had diaria, drank a lot and kept getting sick. One day he had bad diaria, so my parents brought him to the vet again. We thought he would be cured again. But to our shock, the vet told my parents that he had lost 10% of his body weight and that he should be put asleep and if we kept it to late he would go into great suffering. So my parents did the right thing. When my parents told me the news I started crying. So did my mum. I loved Jasper more than anything. But now instead of crying because I miss him, I laugh and smile at all the good and funny moments we shared. Now I understand, that though the body is gone, Jasper's spirit shall remain in our heart.
