THE FRIENDS OF JAKE
on 6th. July 2010:
My parents got their first giant breed dog when I was 16 and their last when I was 35. I mark to you the passing of their beloved Dante, who was a rescue Newfoundland. A wild-eyed yearling when they got him, he aged into the calm elegance of the breed, a true gentle giant with nothing but love in his great heart which finally stopped last night at the venerable age of 12.
For a proper appreciation of this noble creature go read our friend's post in full.
