In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
We are very sad to announce that our alumnus Joey, formerly JoAnne, has passed away at the age of 14.
Joey came to rescue in 2010 emaciated after having a litter of puppies in Georgia. She was the Flugman family’s first foster dog, and was an immediate ‘foster fail,’ adopting her within days. As Joey was getting older, her human brother Travis was devoted to her and we’re sure the feeling was mutual. Joey was so much more than her family’s GSP. She had a perfect temperament and they adored her. She was there for her family during the good times, but also the tragic times. When her dad passed away 3 years ago from cancer, she mourned with her family and helped ease their pain with her love. She was called her dad’s ‘girlfriend’ because they adored one another and it’s a comfort to her family knowing Joey is reunited with him.
Her family is grateful they have Mary Kay (also a SEGSP alum, who just turned 11) to help them through this loss. Mary kay is grieving too… We are all so sad that Joey is no longer with her family on earth, but we can only imagine the joy of the reunion with her dad at the Rainbow Bridge.
“I am not gone, I’m just gone from your sight. In the blink of an eye, I’ll see you again when the time is just right. Wipe the tears from your eyes, and watch for the signs that I send to remind you that love never dies.” Jack McAfghan
