NAME: Joysie. It was just Joy in the shelter but since we're from New "Joysie," we expanded it.
OWNERS: Pat and Garret Falcone
HOW THEY MET: Three years ago on Christmas Eve we lost one of our cats to cancer. It was a sad holiday. Then Pat talked me into a dog (our first!). She found Joysie on the Internet being fostered in Hagerstown by a policeman. We went and got her at 9 p.m. New Year's Eve. It's been a joy ride since.
AGE: 3 1/2
BREED: Terrier mix
BEST TRICK: Fetching a full-size football-- continuously.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Killing the squeak in all toys.
FAVORITE FOOD: Anything we eat.
FUNNIEST MOMENT: If one of us comes homes late she hides in the back room and barks from there.
FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Triple rollover for treats.
IF JOYSIE HAD A MOTTO FOR LIFE, IT WOULD BE: Can't we all just kiss and be friends?
