Ode to Joe

Published February 5, 2009 by glaumland

Well, it’s been 2 and a 1/2 weeks since we last saw Joe. Or JoJo, or Joey, or Joey-the-lemur, or Joey sabueso. His official name was Joey’s Raspberry Tequila Sunrise and he was a beagle. A great beagle. His daddy was a blue, so Joey always looked old from the age of 5 since he’d greyed early. And now on his way to 15 years of age he’s gone. He had the typical old-dog problems: a little arthritis, periodontal disease, and fatty tumors, but he was still happy to run around, nose to the ground, getting in the trash, always looking for food. (That’s why beagle has 2 “e’s” in it – E is for eat!) We loved you Joey – you were a great pal.
