We made the painful decision to put Jake, our Border Collie, to sleep this afternoon. He was 16 years old. Jake was a magnificent animal inside and out, and a wonderful, wonderful friend. We miss him.

I am so sorry to read about Jake. I cried as I watched the video. Border Collie's have such a personality, you can see it in their eyes. He was a beautiful boy and I'm sure he had a wonderful life with you.

I'm so very sorry to hear of Jake's passing. He was my favourite Border Collie on Earth and certainly provided both Mike and I with a great amount of joy when we looked after him for you. He will be missed a great deal - but more importantly, remembered for being an outstanding animal and companion.

I'm not even sure how I stumbled upon your blog this evening, but I did, and I'm so glad. Your tribute to Jake is beautiful, what a lucky dog he was, what lucky people you are to have had him in your life! I know Border Collies, and they are extraordinary. Met one once named Corby, and felt as if I were immediately in a relationship with a awesome being. Ah, if only humans could be more like dogs!
