1997 – December 3, 2012
We adopted Josie from CPR in June of 2009. She was rescued from a puppy mill, then went to a foster home, and then to us. When her foster parents brought her to us, she was very timid. She didn’t know how to play or what she was supposed to do. It didn’t take long, however, for her to blossom into the most beautiful, loving, happy and playful baby ever. In the three and a half years she was with us, we gave her a lifetime of love, yet she gave us more. She lived a long life overall, 15 years, the last few years making up for the first twelve. When cancer overtook her, it was the saddest day of our lives. She was a gift from God and the debate goes on as to who rescued who. Loved more than words can describe, and now missed even more, we will always have Josie in our hearts.
