July 16, 1999 – August 10, 2014
You rarely saw Bruce and his human Jane Weaver together at Cherry Beach, but you always knew where either one was. Bruce would gallop up to anyone and everyone in search of treats while Jane’s unmistakable laugh echoed around the park. Eventually Jane would come around the corner and ask, “Have you seen Bruce?” then she’d laugh.
Jane and Bruce usually hung out with Heather and her Golden Avi. It was Avi’s birthday one time and Heather was letting everyone know so Avi could get a celebratory treat. Well, didn’t Bruce start telling everyone it was his birthday too so he wouldn’t be left out.
Okay, that’s my interpretation of how it went down.
Bruce or Bruceyyyyyyy! as I called him was one on the most well known dogs at Cherry. When he passed, Diana (Gramma D) Griffin rallied folks and started a collection for his bench. It snowballed from there to a euchre tournament/fund raiser graciously hosted by local dog walker Audie Agnew and his partner Gary at their home. What a time! There were raffles, prizes, drinks, tons of food, and a large representation from the CB crew. Over $1,000 was raised that night.
Cherry Beach is a special place with an awesome community, we are so fortunate to be a part of it.
Here are some of Jane’s memories
