On Tuesday, November 11th we celebrated our sweet dog Jovie’s 5th Birthday!!!!
She is such a darling and we have so much love for this little baby. My hubby received Jovie as a birthday gift 5 years ago and she has been his loving companion ever sense. These two are simply inseparable. Every time the hubby has to go on a business trip, Jovie patiently waits for him to come home. She was one of the CUTEST golden puppies I have ever seen.
When Jeffrey and I got married in 2011, I had the honor of becoming this little girls “mommy” and she is just as precious now as she was then. We all look like babies in this picture.
She loves going to Grandma and Grandpa’s lake house and jumping off the dock more than anything else. She truly is a water dog and her “Happy Place” is wherever she can swim and swim and swim.
She puts up with so many of my holiday shenanigans including yearly Halloween costumes, bunny ears for Easter, and Christmas scarves for the holidays.

This angel has celebrated so many milestones with our family and now we are excited to celebrate HER!!!
In the Spring we found out Jovie had a malignant tumor in her leg. We were simply devastated. We knew we weren’t ready to say goodbye to our baby and it wasn’t quite her time yet. So… after 2 surgeries, several weeks in a full leg cast, and 100lb. mommy carrying 65lb. Jovie up and down the stairs multiple times a day, we FINALLY received the all clear and a clean bill of health!!! Our baby was back and her inner LIGHT was shinning brighter than ever!!!! We added a third Cancer Survivor to our family and CELEBRATED!!!!
Jovie, you are a beautiful soul and we love and admire you so much!!!
We are beyond thankful for every memory where you were by our side and are JOYFUL for the many years we now get to spend with you. Thank you for being YOU and the best Jovie-Dog we have!!!
Love Mommy and Daddy!!!!!
