Looking Back: Eddye & Jessie

Eddye White and her cavalier King Charles spaniel Jessie first became a Pet Partners team in 2007 and served until Jessie passed away earlier this year. Eddye has been teamed with a number of cavalier King Charles spaniel partners over the past two decades and continues to volunteer with her four currently registered dogs, but she wanted to share some special words for her longest-serving partner.

She was a beautiful, soft, sweet, loving, easy girl. She never knew a stranger and everyone loved her so much. She touched so many lives and hearts in her 13 years of being a Pet Partners therapy dog.

The photo below is of Jessie at the ACKCSC National dog show in 2016 in Norman, OK. She received an AKC title for Therapy Dog Distinguished–that is for over 400 + visits. The ribbon is for her for being in the ACKCSC Veteran Parade. The AKC sponsored the ribbons for the veterans that had a little parade in the show ring.

Thank you so much for recognizing her. She was the love of my life!
