I have struggled with how to share this news, I have avoided it in part because I don’t want to admit to myself that he is gone. You see, Jimmy, was more than my best friend, he was an important part of 8THIRTYFOUR culture and, dare I say, community.
Jimbo came into our lives 6 or so years ago, after I saw him on the Vicky’s Pet Connection Facebook page. He was a part of their Senior Paws program, which focused on finding homes for older dogs that no one seemed to want. He was loved since day 1, when he would express himself by hopping and barking at you for attention. He had a way about him.
He was such a staple at 8THIRTYFOUR that we named him our Chief Happiness Officer. Anyone who visited our office asked for Jimmy and I am certain he was key in us landing several accounts. When he decided to head out on an adventure at 9:00 p.m. to visit Graydon’s Crossing, the entire community came together to find him. Because of you, the couple that picked him up, recognized him from social media and returned him to us that very night.
How do you fill a Jimmy size hole in your heart? I’m told time will help ease the sadness and maybe that is true, but one thing is for sure – he was extremely loved.
To all of you, thank you for loving Jimmy.
We’ll see you on the other side buddy.
