No one is immune to the pain that is felt when a beloved dog dies. It doesn’t matter how rich or poor you are. The loss still stings just the same. For country singer, Raelynn, she has been mourning the loss of her dog, Jazz. And it hasn’t been easy.
Jazz was a 7-year-old German Shepherd who was trained to help the singer manage her Type 1 diabetes. The dog would wake Raelynn up if he detected a change in her blood sugar levels. Jazz was also a constant companion. He went on tour with Raelynn and accompanied her everywhere she went.
Jazz had been fighting cancer for the last year. He finally lost his battle to the terrible disease that claims so many human and dog lives too. “I’m broken hearted. I wish dogs could live forever,” Raelynn said.
