Heart Breaking News! RIP Jaxon!

Jaxon liked a good laugh

We just got the news from Jim Staib from FineWoodBoats, long time fellow Woody Boater Jaxon passed away suddenly today at 4:59. No cause of death is known. but, I know here on Woody Boater Jaxon will live on forever. He is peeing on Larry right now, and I am sure will make a visit to Zip, who also passed away from Lung Cancer back in the day.

Was board by politics and Judging drama

I am heart broken and so so sad. This year we have seen way to many of our best buddies pass on. UGH.

Always up for a road trip

Sleep well Jaxon!

Jaxon brought such joy to us all here. He is the only 4 legged friend that knew how to type and leave a comment in his own special way. Heck, he could spell better than me! Not that is such a hard thing to do.  To quote one of my favorite writers. “If there are no dogs on Heaven, then when I die, I want to go where they went.” Will Rogers.

    It’s sad when you lose a member of the family.We lost one of ours a few years ago close to Christmas.We didn’t have Christmas that year.Keeping the memories tho.I remember him barking with his head in the minnow bucket,bobbing for live perch in the cooler full of water.Being a Shih-tzu,he looked like a drownded rat.
