Ch. Sarron SumerWynd Jane Air
August 2001 - October 2011
Today was another very difficult day to go through. For today (October 19th ) I had to say good-bye to my sweet girl Ch. Sarron SumerWynd Jane Air (Jet). Jet came to live with me when she was 3 years of age. Her coat was a colour I had never seen before on a Groenendael. Because she was living mostly outside at the time, Jet's coat became a rich burgundy! It took a very long time for me to bring Jet's coat back to the rich, lustrous black colour it was always meant to be.
Jet was a very special girl. She was the sweetest, most charming, and lovable girl with humans. She loved absolutely everybody and only wanted to share that love and be loved back. She was always seeking pettings and praise wherever she went. She would convince anyone that she was the best female out there.
She was a true “Velcro” dog. I couldn't sit anywhere for I could be sure that Jet would want to sit on me. In bed, it wasn't enough that she would sleep on the bed she had to be glued to my side. One good thing about that is I never needed to turn up the heat since she took care of that.
Though she had many good qualities Jet also had a very nasty side!!!!! She couldn't tolerate ANY females that were over a year old. When females became of according to Jet, they needed to be put in their place and know their rank and she made sure of that!!!!!! Jet made sure that any females that crossed her path knew who she was and what her role was!
Jet helped me guide other dogs at home. Dogs that, for one reason or another, had to learn what it meant to listen and know who was boss. Jet was not afraid of any dog! Whether they were male or female she would take her place and guard it well.
There are so many things I could share with you but right now the emptiness that her passing has left is still so fresh that I have a hard time seeing my keyboard anymore.
Jet had to be euthanized because she had stomach cancer. When my vet opened her up and saw that her stomach was 90% filled with cancer, I took the decision to let her go.
I miss the spunkiness Jet always demonstrated. She is sorely missed but at least now she is disease free. I was extremely lucky to have had Jet share my life. She has taught me well about what a strong female can do. I will always admire the strength she displayed up to the very end. Rest in peace my sweet girl! I love you.
