Update on Bobby’s Story

Last month, we shared the story of Bobby, a beautiful, vibrant soul that came to us with a large, cancerous tumor on his hind end. At best guess, he had 6 months to a year left to live. Despite this, Bobby was adopted by Betsy Semones on January 6th, who wanted nothing more than to give Bobby the unconditional love he deserved.

Bobby spent three, wonderful months with Betsy and Charlie, his canine sibling, before he passed away last week. His final days were spent playing in the snow with Charlie, hiking, and, of course, playing fetch. Always playing fetch.

Everyone who encountered Bobby expressed disbelief that his body was riddled with cancer. He never once let on that he was ill, until his very last moments. He was an unwavering ambassador of love and hope.

Bobby will always be in Betsy’s heart, as well as the hearts of all those who had the privilege of meeting him.
