From email dated October 20, 2008
My Husband and I adopted a cocker from your rescue 7 years ago. His name was Jake. Jake is no longer with us. He had cancer that was attacking his bone marrow. We are broken hearted and sadden that we had to put our beloved "Jake" to sleep on Sat. Oct. 4, 2008. He was in sooooooooo much pain and needed to go to sleep, where he will no longer be in pain. JAKE was with us for 7 years and it feels like a part of us went with him.
Heart broken parents, of "Jake" Titus

Adding a note from Jake's Foster Mom
We received sad news yesterday from Jake's family that Jake lost his fight with bone cancer. Jake's adopted family sent us a Christmas card every year with a picture of Jake and stories of him with his family. It was obvious that they loved him very much and are also missing him greatly. Jake was a sweetheart of a dog and was very attached to Tom. We had him for over a year and half and it was a mystery why it took so long for someone to adopt it. He is still well remembered in the neighborhood, particularly by the kids.
