Life Can Turn on a Dime

The Flame that burns twice as bright,
Burns half as long

MACH PACH2 Fine Creek's Sharp Dressed Man

It is with a crushed heart that I tell of the loss of our Jimmy
on Wednesday morning. Only 12 days earlier he received a diagnosis of Hemangiosarcoma.

One of Jimmy's many nick names was "The Boss". He stayed in charge right to the very end,
passing away shortly before the vet came to ease his passage.

Jimmy was so much larger than life, a boisterous, funny boy who always had a lot to say
and he said it loudly! His personality ran to the intense and this made him an excellent
agility teammate for many great years. He loved that game and he gave it his all.

He was an avid television watcher and could pick out an animal character even if it was only a cartoon. He would quickly lose interest when nothing but people filled the screen.

He was the most intelligent dog I have ever had, understanding a huge vocabulary of words. But he was an even better communicator with his eyes. Whole conversations could be had watching the
expressions in his beautiful, bright eyes.

I will forever miss gazing into those windows of Jimmy's mind and soul.

To Anne his breeder, thank you for giving us one of the best highlights in ours lives.
Jimmy was one of a kind. I know you are grieving for him as well.

To Jimmy himself I say : As you journey across the Bridge, please know that you made our lives
so much better and that you are and always will be incredibly loved and incredibly missed.
That will never end. Keep an eye out for your brother Wilson, he won't be far behind.


  1. I am so very sorry to hear you sad news, Jimmy will be sorely missed here as well.
    Sending you lots of luffs and hugs
    Loves and licky kisses

  2. We are so sorry to hear about your dear doggie Jimmy. Sending lots of hugs and prayers.

  3. I am so sorry that Jimmy has crossed the bridge. He will always be with you in spirit!

  4. So sorry to hear about your Jimmy. I lost my Brut the same way. 24 Paws crossed for all of you.

  5. OMD! I had to read that twice. I kept thinking 'Wilson'. What a shock! I know you are heartbroken. Such a huge hole left in your family and hearts. We're sending hugs to all of you.

  6. We are so, so sorry. Words are inadequate. Thank you for sharing Jimmy with us for all these (too short) years. God Speed, Jimmy.

  7. Oh noes. OMD, I am so very sorry. I can't believes it. I am sending lot of loves and {{{hugs}}} and slobbery kisses. I will miss him dearly ~ I just love seeing him chase and be chased by his brothers. I know it is going to be hard, butts know we are here.
    Til we meet again my furiend...

  8. I know I have commented above, but I wanted to add, to John, how sorry I am, as I remember that Jimmy designated himself as "John's dog." To you both, losing a loved one early is so much harder than losing someone after a long, good life. I unexpectedly lost my twin brother, followed shortly by my first Cardigan (both, sadly, to a blood clot in the spine) many years ago, and not a day goes by that I don't remember them and love them. As you so eloquently wrote, this is true for you and Jimmy, too.

  9. A lovely tribute to a really special dog. Thank you for sharing him with us. We grieve with you. Hugs.

  10. What a blessed life he lived and shared with you. My sympathy.

  11. Thank you Fay for the kind thoughts.. Jimmy's flame burnt twice as bright, thus only half as long. We'll always love him and never forget him.

  12. Jimmy brought so many of us such joy, but none as much as you. I am so incredibly sorry. I didn’t expect this so it feels like a gut punch. Sending love to all of you.
