My Joey

Watching mom in the kitchen2.jpg

On June 29, I lost my gentle, beautiful, beloved dog Joey.

He was my friend, my companion, and most of all, my heart.

As a therapy dog, he brought uncounted joy to hundreds of people . . .
and since the day I adopted him in 2015,

he brought the same to every human being he met.

To a person, they were struck with his incredible kindness and sweetness . . .
he was like a magnet that drew every human being to him.

I will mourn his loss forever.
