Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Jack Bealer
2008 to 1-12-2023
Jack led a life full of adventure, I think it’s safe to say he saw more than most humans do in a lifetime.  We adopted him on March 21st, 2009, after Sierra picked him out from the Polaris husky Rescue in FtCO, they were best friends for 9 years.  The rescue thought he was about 1- 1.5yrs old so we rounded down to 1yr, he very well could have been 15 when he passed. Having Sierra and Jack in our lives brought us many friendships all over the world and I am forever grateful for those connections. He truly was one of the last ones standing, it has been hard saying goodbye to so many great pups over the years.
Jack took to mountain climbing like a natural, he was my hiking buddy for 11 years with us doing many solo adventures together, I joked that if he was a human, he would be a guide as he was so good at reading the trail and being off leash above tree line. He also was a great motivator, if we ever stopped for too long, he would start yelling at us to get moving. While a chatter box in the car (I used my mom ears to block him out) we took many road trips into the mountains and even as far away as New Mexico. He was a pro in tents, hotels, and cabins. Jack climbed 85- 13ers & 14ers, his last 13er was Mt. Evans B with Finn on 9-19-2020. That’s not counting all the local trails we did for training, he loved being outside in the woods and on the snow. As Jack started to slow down, we took to easy trails and dog park visits for him to enjoy, we traded the tent in for cabin stays and did all the things he loved.
We did notice a change in his health in Aug and by Nov. we did an ultrasound that showed some things but missed the liver cancer, a week later we learned the news and bawled our eyes out. I had a feeling it was cancer, I was noticing signs similar to Sierra, except back then we did not know with her till it was too late. We made sure his last Christmas was the best, we took to a easy trail in Golden, got pup cakes and french-fries at the brewery. He tore into the gifts on Christmas morning like a little kid.
I prayed he would make it till I got back from my trip, a trip that should have happened in 2020 and 2021. I would miss saying good bye to my best friend in person and it crushed me. I left Ken alone to handle his last days and I feel terrible about that. I switched my flight as my budget would allow but I was still short a day. We are grateful for Caring Pathways for working with us and the timing so I could be there on video between flights. Jack took his last breaths at 3pm on thur the 12th with Ken and the pups.
Rest In Peace my sweet boy, I love and miss you so much. I hope you have found Sierra and all your other friends and will keep watch over us till we meet again.

I don't know whether it hurts more to have to put a dog to sleep or to read about one who's lived such a full life who has reached his last day. You have my sincerest sympathy, you know that. That was a beautiful eulogy to a beautiful friend.

Rest in peace Jack and keep the pathway to the bridge open.

We learned a lot about what we could do with our own watching you and Jack and Sierra over the years. Your adventures have made our own that much better.
