Goodbye Joanne / Favorite Foto Friday #14

Happy Friday all!

I still can’t believe it’s 2010. In 5 more years we’ll all be driving in hover-cars and eating Soylent Green. I’m just now coming down from the holidays and it’s nice to have some time to relax, unwind and even sleep a little πŸ™‚

2 days ago, the MoJo’s family got some very sad news. One of our best friends and former dog-caretakers, Joanne Kamerick, passed away. Susan said it best yesterday when she told me that a lot of dogs got to cross the rainbow bridge the day that Joanne died. She had the biggest heart that I’ve had the privilege to know I’m going to miss her immensely. I dug through the photo archives and picked out a few of my favorites to share:

Joanne sitting with her dogs, Domino and Rica-two of the luckiest dogs in the world.

Joanne loves our foster, who we lovingly called Sgt. Stinky, one last time before helping him find peace.

Joanne and I dressed all the dogs in 2008 for their parents' Christmas cards. That's Joanne, always giving πŸ™‚

We’ll all be attending her memorial service this Sunday at 4:00pm at the Faith Funeral Home in Havana. And if you knew Joanne and want to do something in her memory, her daughter is asking friends and family to donate to Big Dog Rescue, which I think perfectly fits what Joanne would have wanted. We love you, Joanne, and we know that you’re taking care of lost dogs even now.


It’s been too long since we’ve had a FFF. And this week, I have a theme. Don’t you just love themes?

I’m feeling it’s a Favorite Black Lab kinda Friday.

A little reminder of how this thing works (since it’s been so, so long):

-start voting now! votes received after 7:00pm Thursday, Jan 14th will not count.

-you must leave your name and the number or dog’s name in a comment on this blog to have your voice heard.

-you may only vote once but recruit all your friends and family to vote.

-the dog with the most votes wins a free day of daycare at MoJo’s Backyard

-you certainly don’t have to know the dog to vote: vote the cutest, the funniest, the -that-looks-like-my-neighbor’s-dog.

Here are your handsome hounds:

#1 Beaumont enjoys tearing up soft toys, flirting with the girls and flashing his white, white teeth.

#2 Oliver enjoys energetic puppies, racing in circles and happy people.

#3 Ryder enjoys dogs that look like him, skiing and licking faces.
