Topher has passed away :(

We've received news that the famous dog at Jack's Shack in Grand Turk - Topher - passed away peacefully yesterday at 12 years old. He had the best life ever, playing with new people each day, swimming, digging in the sand, and eating whatever guests decided to share with him! I had the opportunity to meet him during a port stop in Grand Turk two years ago to the day today, actually. I'm going to miss him!

Sad to hear about that. We have been to Jacks' a number of times over the years and witnessed Topher's gentle and playful antics. He will be missed. RIP

Thanks for sharing. I agree his antics and friendliness will be missed.

Sad news. Such a great dog.

Such a sad thing to happen especially so close to the holidays. Topher will be greatly missed by his fans.

Topher laid under my beach lounge 3 different times from the time we arrived until we headed back to the ship. We will definitely miss him when we get back to GT.
