jakeWe just had to put down our beloved Jake a couple weeks ago. He was a vital part of our family for almost 11 years. Even with the aid of supplements and medications, his severe arthritis was causing him too much pain for us to continue to watch him suffer. He was our first SHLR lab but he was the reason we adopted another, Sadie, a few years later. He had a larger than life presence in our family and knew how to make me smile even when he got into mischief. We miss him so much but are glad he is finally free from the pain he tried to cover up daily.
