BEVERLY HILLS —I’m writing this with a heavy heart, as my sweet little JoJo has passed over the Rainbow Bridge. However, she was such a happy and fun little girl, she always had me going around with a smile on my face, so I know that she wouldn’t want me to be sad.
I was so very fortunate to have had her in my life for the last sixteen months of her fifteen years. I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter, more loving little girl. I adopted her within minutes of when she was brought into the Friends of Animals Foundation. I put her on my lap, and she won my heart immediately.
She had such cute little ways about her, and, I have to admit that she trained me to respond to all of them! One of the things that she trained me to do was to go to bed earlier than I ever had! At 9:30 she would jump off the couch and walk toward the bedroom looking at me. Of course, I had to follow. If I didn’t, I felt guilty, as she would come back and jump back up on the couch with a sigh! So, I read or watched TV in bed ,so that she would be happy.
One of her favorite things to do everyday was to go to the park and see the squirrels. They would always come half way down the trees and taunt her. She didn’t quite understand why, no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t climb the trees, too!
She had the most beautiful coat, and a little tuft of hair on the top of her head. Everyone would comment about how cute she was. They thought that she looked like a little fox!
I could write a book about her, but I’ll leave you with this thought:
When you are thinking about adopting a pet, please don’t overlook the older ones. They adapt so quickly, and they give you, oh, so much love. I know that their time with you isn’t as long as you would have with a younger one, but just think of the happiness you will bring to them – and the happiness that they will bring to you, in return.
Sleep well, my dear, sweet, little JoJo. I love and miss you so very much.
