You came to me six years ago with your brother and you’ve been searching for him since he left us nine months ago. Now the two of you can be together again.  We’re going to miss you little guy but Zen & Laci are waiting for you.  Thank you Destiny For Dogs and JoAnn Lewis Goodrich for everything you do to help these voiceless critters and letting me give these guys a home when you did. RIP Geodi.  We love you!”

💔I lost my beautiful and good, one of a kind baby boy Mochie, Monday on the full moon. So deeply truly saddened. Had him for almost 2 years, was sick for 1 year.

Mochie went to sleep in yard, as best he could, beautifully and peacefully. I will get his ashes next week💔

King

🐾💕GOOD NEWS PUPDATE FROM KING’S DAD🐾💕

“JoAnn, I’m forwarding to you a webpage from a local camera store that runs a weekly contest. This past week the theme was dogs. There’s a long story behind these photos and how they ended up as winners in the contest. Briefly, I took the black and white photo of King on my front porch. The color photo was taken by a neighbor while I was walking King near the neighbor’s home – that’s my leg and foot in the photo. I didn’t know at the time that the photo was taken – telephoto lens. But the combination of the two photos has led to King’s being crowned by the camera store as “King of Warrenton.”

King is now a “Superstar” and Crowned, “King of Warrenton.” Such a precious and deserving senior guy. King had a rough life until Jim drove from Virginia to Florida a few years ago to adopt and provide an extraordinary loving forever home.

We love these heartwarming pupdates from our adopters. They bring a smile to our face and warm our heart💗
