|From The View I Love the Most|
Last week my mom sent my dad to the store. He came home with a little something extra. There was an animal shelter in the parking lot and said that the dogs that were left at the end of the day were going to be put to sleep. When he set his eyes on this four year old Chocolate Lab (Or "Chocolate Factory" as Drew said) he couldn't help himself. The kids fell in LOVE with Mocha Joe. They loved the way he just layed there while they cuddled him until they couldn't cuddle anymore! Dad was calling him Joe, but Drew insisted we call him by his full name. Cohen calls him Mocha Mocha Joe and it's the cutest thing ever!! The only problem with Mocha Joe...he just won't stay with us! My parents have a really nice dog pen for the bird dogs and he chewed his way through the chainlink. He busted out the the screened in porch and even JUMPED from the second story deck!!! He was returned numerous times by neighbors who said they wanted him if we didn't. The last time he escaped...he never came back. There were a few kids around here that were VERY sad but luckily they didn't have a lot of time to get attached. We miss you Mocha Joe!
