……Richard and I said goodbye to our Beloved Burro, Dilly Jo. She has passed on to the Further Shore today. She was such a Love…the oldest and most loving of all our critters. We have no idea how old she was….she was further along in years when she came to us 7 or 8 years ago. She came from a very tough Beast of Burden existance…she had been hobbled most of her life…there was rope growing out of the bottom of her leg…..near her hoof…..Her legs turned inward…but there was joy in her heart because she had two daughters with her: Barbarella and Lolita. She was able to get around with ease. Her patron saint was Catherine Abby Rich who she got to meet one year. Sail on, Dilly Jo…I miss your Spirit already…with Heavy Hearts, Richard and I thank you, Dear Dilly Jo, for the joy that you brought to our lives…..
My heart goes out to both of you. It’s so difficult to lose someone you love……..
Christie Smith says
Anado and Richard,
You are in my thoughts as you mourn your beloved girl. With deepest sympathy.

The cruel abuse of God’s helpless creatures never ceases to amaze and sadden me. How this little burro must have suffered before you rescued her. Bless you for giving Dilly Jo those precious years of love and security.
