In Memoriam – Jett

June 4th, 2019 by Laurie Brush

Jett’s Story:
Jett was an amazing blessing to our family. Through all the transitions of life; education, careers, multiple moves, and multiple children, he was the constant. We had never had a dog before and he was better than we deserved. We didn’t know what we were doing at first, but he was the kind of partner that never required cages, boarding, leashes, anything. He was fiercely loyal, patient, and gentle. It was almost unfair to him, but we were able to hold him to a higher standard than just being a pet. He was family and he never disappointed. We love you Jetter and you will always be a part of us all.

Dr. Laura and the staff members we worked with (primarily Kathryn and Mary) were all amazing. They were patient, empathetic, and always took the time to answer all our questions. We truly felt they cared for our situation uniquely and could see it on Dr. Laura’s face when the time had come. We give this group so much credit to have to do this type of position daily, but even through that, they were never cold or calculated. Thank God for people like this, who made what felt like an impossible decision and time, at least bearable, so that we could do the right thing and give our family member dignity and peace at the end. There was never any fear like he would have had, had we done this any other way. We will be forever grateful for that.
