Reese and her best friend, Morgan, were inseparable.The two senior rescues ate, slept, and cuddled as often as they could.Nonetheless, when 12-year-old Morgan died of kidney disease, life for the close-knit duo changed, and Reese’s grief had an effect.
According to Reese’s mother, Amy Thatcher, “I baked her unique doggie cupcakes and slept on a mattress on my living-room floor for a bit so she can sleep with me.”I also picked up some foster puppies for Reese for a few days because she adores them.Nothing seemed to be working at all.
Reese’s situation quickly deteriorated.She stopped eating and spent most of her days in bed, trembling.Thatcher made the decision to find Reese another friend to help the grieving canine fill the void left by Morgan’s death because nothing seemed to alleviate her pain.Thatcher mentioned how Jeep’s attractive face drew his attention as he scrolled through the available pets.Before Jeep, I had only ever adopted senior dogs.I decided to adopt a younger dog because Reese didn’t handle Morgan’s death well, and I didn’t want to put her through another loss.
Thatcher fell head over heels for Jeep the first time he met him.Despite the fact that he wasn’t exactly like Morgan, she was confident that Reese would love him.Thatcher fell in love with Jeep after adopting him and revealing him to Reese.Her heart began to heal slowly but steadily, and the two are now inseparable.
“Jeep has brought out this young, playful side of Reese,” Thatcher observed.She still intends to have fun with her “little brother,” despite the fact that she will be 14 in a month.She dislikes him being away from home and is always delighted to see him.Morgan, Reese, and Jeep’s story can be found here:
Jeep assures Reese that everything will be fine, and Thatcher believes the same.Regardless, Reese will always miss Morgan.”Morgan improved my life simply by being herself,” Thatcher said, “and I’ll always remember her.”Jeep came into my life when my heart, like Reese’s, was broken.I’m not sure how we would have survived without him, but he helped us get through a difficult period.
