Binky Jones: March 22, 2005 – March 17, 2019
Binky has given us the best 14 years of our lives! He added so much joy and happiness to our lives on a daily basis. It seems like just yesterday that my son, Jeremy and I made the two-hour trip to Anniston, AL to pick him up. We were the first to arrive and had the “pick of the litter.” We often laugh about that day because he chose us! That day, he crawled over his siblings, into Jeremy’s hoodie pocket, stretched out and made himself quite comfortable. From that day, we knew Binky was the one for our family; the runt of the litter was full of personality & confidence, high-energy, lovable, smart, one-of-a-kind!
Over the years, Binky captured the hearts of many. A lot of the neighborhood kids, including my son, grew up with Binky and loved him dearly. He was never too keen of socializing with other dogs and had a “human personality.” Binky was very persistent, to be such a runt, often demanding you expeditiously move off, especially to fetch his “treat” and dare not wipe his paws as he entered the house after walking on grass with morning dew or place on his little yellow rain coat when it rains. Yes, Binky was quite an “elitist dog!”
Binky was our first family pet and can never be replaced. He was a wonderful dog, and a faithful and loving companion. There is an emptiness in our home where he once lived. I have heard people say there are “once in a lifetime” dogs and Binky was definitely just that. He will never be forgotten and we will see him again one day in Heaven. Binky – a cherished member of our family who will be dearly missed.
We will always love you, Binky!
