As many of you know, we had to say good-bye to our fur-ever friend, Frankie, this summer.
13 years & 22 days with the world’s greatest dog.
So lucky, yes we were.
Smart and hilarious, I found him at the Humane Society. (More about his adoption here.) In his honor, we decided to pay it forward and sponsor the adoption of another lucky mutt. He was all about sharing (especially food!) and I think he would have appreciated that.
Last week, still feeling the pinch of his absence, I received an email that made my heart smile. Read on:
I wanted to let you know that Frankie’s memorial gift was used on a terrific family today 🙂 They adopted Penny – a 1.5 year old Pointer/Hound mix who has been with us since October 8. The cool thing is that Penny joins their Golden Retriever, Sam, who was adopted from us in 2010. The photo of the adopter, her son and the 2 dogs together is below.
The adopter was so overwhelmed by your generous gift that she started to cry. She couldn’t believe the kindness of you and your family and was even more touched because she just had to put her cat down last month. She wanted to keep the generosity going so she made a donation to help more animals!
Thank you again to you and your amazing family! It is truly an honor to be a part of your fantastic story!
On behalf of all of our animals, we thank you!!!

We like to think of Penny and her brother, Sam, as “Frankie’s friends” and we’re happy to be part of their success story.
Ever had a “pay-it-forward” moment? Please share!
