Our family has felt incomplete since Jake passed away in April. It was so quick and unexpected that it left us shattered. As we were moving through the process of grieving his loss and reflecting on his life, I realized what an important role he had in our family. In many ways he was more than “just” a pet. He was a best friend. He was here 24/7, in a family that is together 24/7. He was a reading buddy, a math partner, a music aficionado, a playmate, and a protector. Those are some pretty big paws to fill.
This week we met Crosby, our 4 week old Goldendoodle. Don’t let his coloring fool you, this little guy is a true Goldendoodle. His mom is a Goldendoodle and his dad is a standard poodle making him a F1b generation dog. He is part of a litter of 10 that was bred to produce a service dog for a friend of the breeder who is a Veteran suffering from PTSD and has mobility issues. He will be joining us in four weeks and we just can’t wait!
