I had to put my best friend down today. Eddie Boy, my beloved Jack Russell Terrier, was 14 and had advanced cancer in his hips and lungs. I bought him at the Paintsville Stock Yard when he was 5 weeks old and since then he has been such a big part of my life. My wife who died from cancer years ago loved him so much. I’m sure they are together now because all dogs go to heaven. Eddies love and unconditional loyalty is what makes owning a dog so great but also is why it hurts so much when the time comes to end their pain. Here in Taiwan he was a legend. He never meet a stranger, loved kids, and never run from a fight. They cremate dogs here And since my wife and daughter and I will be moving back to Paintsville I will be bringing him home. As a side note, he and I would watched UK basketball when I lived in Nevada. He would sit beside me and bark at the screen whenever UK scored. He will be so missed.
