  • Farewell to Little Josie
    As we have shared with our readers, the health of our little dog, Josie, has been deteriorating for some time. She was 16years old on Mother’s Day.
    Josie was special in that she was so tiny when she was born. She was half the size of her three siblings and she was not breathing, nor was her heart beating when she was born.   
    Bill gently thumped her heart, then massaged it with one finger until she started breathing.
    She had been healthy, affectionate, happy and playful until the signs of age began showing.
