Jed was a great dog and family member! He had a history before he came to live with us. Originally he lived in Lewiston and then a guy about 2 miles from here had him. That man would tie Jed up in his barn and would beat him and Jed would get away and go to another neighbor who loved animals. Finally they told the guy they wouldn't give him back and would report him if he tried to take him. They asked us if we'd like to have an Irish Setter. I had always wanted one so I said yes. Then they brought us Jed who was a Retriever, but we loved him anyway. Trevor and Jed became inseparable and best buddies. He took part in all the family shenanigans. He was gentle--cats always loved cuddling with him and he was tolerant--kids rolling on him and dressing him in clothes. He had a flair for running away once in awhile -I think to get extra attention. Soon everyone in the area knew who he was and called us and always said what a nice dog he was. He would spend a few days with whoever found him and I think got his extra attention. This has been theraputic, but I still miss him. What a Cubby he was! His nickname.
