Bob Luongo writes: “Two years ago my Jack Russell friend of 15 years died. Penny was my constant companion. For the last two years I’ve had many recurring dreams where I was trying to find my Penny, and they were always sad and elusive. Finally, this past September I decided to look for a new Penny. Luckily, I found a JR pup in Alabama. Daisy is full of energy, kind of like a ADHD toddler.
“Everywhere we go, people want to pet her…I can hardly walk 10 feet without being stopped. I’m enjoying my new feisty pup, even though she requires a lot of care and training. She brings little rays of sunshine and unburdens my heart with her comical antics. It looks like I found another friend to help me face this lonely world.”
