Goodbye Jay

It's with a very heavy heart that I bring you this news that one of our oldest friend Jay has crossed over to the rainbow bridge yesterday. He would have been 18 years old this September.
He went peacefully in his owner J's arms.

For those of you who dont know about Jay's story. 23rd Sept 2005 was the day of Jay's re-birth, as he was supposed to put down then. Jay was suffering from renal failure then, and was very very weak. But J made him a promise that if Jay wanted to live, she and her family will support him no matter what. And Jay had been strong and lived on well with the extra time under the care and support J and family have given him.


(Picture of Jay sleeping in Eil's lap taken 1.5 yr ago)

Eil have known Jay for 12 years, Jay was the one who inspired us to start this hammie blog. We're glad to know that Jay went on peacefully and had a very pawsome and full life



This is a picture of Jay and J holding paws.
We hope Jay'll find our friends who had already crossed over the bridge and he'll have fun with them there with endless food and treats and no suffering.

We'll always remember you Jay.. Hope we'll meet again someday~

We just saw this now and can't believe Jay passed away. I remember when I first started blogging, Jay's blog was one of the first ones we began to follow.
Jay had a great life and now he's running free at the bridge. We'll miss you Jay!!

Luv, Tobes
