We took our annual Christmas picture. Every year you tried to find the ugliest Christmas sweater you could. I think this one won.
This is your dog Boba Fett. When we adopted him you just had to name him after your favorite Star Wars character. You got a tattoo of the Mandalorian on the back of your right leg for Boba Fett. You always took such great pictures of Boba, sometimes even making him look wolf like. He loves you so and lays at your door waiting for you to come home.
Today Jake and my dog Boba Fett passed away. He was almost 10 years old. I know he’s in Heaven playing with Jacob.
Jake was a really great photographer. He took pictures all the time. Posting a better picture of Jake and Boba Fett. I miss Jake so very much and now Boba Fett has passed away also. I love him too.
Jake and Boba Fett.
