IN MEMORY OF MAGIC
I would like to personally thank you for placing your trust in DeJohn Pet Services to care for your beloved pet in your time of loss. It was truly an honor and a privilege.
I, like you am a pet parent and know the unconditional love between a pet and their family. I rescued my dog, Magic, a Portuguese Water Dog, ten years ago and our bond was instantaneous. Magic became a therapy dog in 2008 and together, we visited patients at Hillcrest Hospital, Hospice of Western Reserve, the Ursuline and Notre Dame sisters and made house visits.We visited various schools for their reading programs and Magic always brought so much joy to the children. What made him so unique was that he was the first funeral home therapy dog in all of Cleveland. He was a therapy dog for DeJohn Funeral Homes and attended funerals at a family’s request. With his sweet, gentle demeanor, Magic has brought comfort to many grieving people during their time of sorrow.
