My beautiful Jasper; Your life was so short,
From March to October, year 2000. The years go by, but you remain in my heart and I will always love you. You came to me with your brother Jessie, barely weened from your Mother. I fed you with warmed goats milk in an eye-dropper until you were able to fend for yourself. I fussed over you as if you were my own baby, but that couldn't save you in the end. I have to believe that you were loved more in those brief 6 months than some animals are loved in a lifetime. Thank you for your love, thank you for trusting me. Thank you for sharing your short life with me. You were so regal and handsome - you reminded me of The Sphinx in Egypt! I wonder if you and Jessie have re-united in Heaven... my hope is that we will all reunite there one day in the future. Sleep well, precious Jasper.
