Jonas's doggy mama, Joey, was put down last weekend. No one really knows what happened to her - she wasn't acting normally, so they took her into the vet and he diagnosed her with a herniated disc in her neck. Two days later they had to put her down due to probable swelling in the brain. It's possible that she was hit by a vehicle, but since she grew up on a farm, she was very cautious around all sorts of motorized vehicles. Jonas's dad, MidKnight, is still kicking (even though he's probably about 14 years old and arthritic!), but he doesn't exactly enjoy playing with Jonas nearly as much as Joey did. It'll be sad the next time we take Jonas down to the farm since he won't understand why Joey isn't around anymore.
