Thrilled that Chubee won the contest, Chubee's mom Mary Jo explained why she entered, “It was a fluke I even sent the photo, a spur of the moment thing, but it felt very right. I think his spirit urged me so he could bring more joy even after he has gone. It would be so like him.”
According to Mary Jo, Chubee brought joy to everyone he met. “Even in a group of purebreds everyone wanted to know about him!” Chubee helped his community too. As a therapy dog, he visited hospitals and nursing homes and loved meeting people wherever he went. Indeed, “He always had a tail wag, paw and smile for anyone who needed it,” Mary Jo remembers.
Thank you Mary Jo for sharing Chubee with us! We agree with you that having Chubee win our contest “shows his spirit is still alive.”
