Jake passed away on 12-28-14 at the age of six. He had a tumor on his liver which also jeopardized his spleen.
Any issue that may have made him ill from our hike were ruled out by two different vets. I can say that my choice to have him accompany me on my hike was the best decision I made. He had the best six months of life a dog could have had. We lived a lifetime together in those six months.
I will be spreading his ashes on the A.T. and the P.C.T., may he roam the trails forever!
