He & Jazz always shared a special connection, that words can’t describe. We at Crazy K9 Campers are grateful to him for always pushing us to do better.
He is and will always be the inspiration behind Crazy K9 Campers. He came into our life, barely at a month in age and blessed us with his antiques for the past 15 years. His zest for life, enthusiasm and ever charming personality pushed us to do better over the years. He is not just part of our family but is and will forever be a part of our souls. When he left us in August 2018 to roll forever in muddy puddles, he inspired us to keep spreading the love even more.
The newest addition to our family, a Dalmatian by breed, she is the new Chief K9 Officer of Crazy K9 Campers. She didn’t replace Jazz but instead taught us to expand our hearts to give more. Our house is a home again, full of puppy licks, warm cuddles and dreamy eyes.
