Liberty Pooch’s Brand Ambassador, mascot, #1 treat tester and Hype Man - Poyo - turns 7! 

There is not a day that goes by that I don’t thank my Cousin Michele for giving us Poyo.  4.5 years ago I remember feeling torn:  I loved Poyo so much, but I wanted Michele to get better.  Keeping him meant accepting that Michele was not going to get better.  I think she knew I would need him to get over losing her: and I did.  Poyo saved my life. I still tear up when I say these words.

If it were not for Poyo, I would not have: gotten out of bed everyday, had a reason to smile, or a reason for being.  I took Michele’s loss and the grief that came from losing so many family members during a short three year period and channeled it into something positive: Liberty Pooch.

Rob and I love Poyo more and more every day.  He is our heart, our soul, and our fur child.  The way Rob looks at him, cares for him, and loves him makes me love him even more.

I know everybody thinks their dog is special:  they are not wrong.  To us:  Poyo is as special as special can be.
