Joseph Pulitzer Krauter


Today was Joey's last day.

My heart breaks all over again as I write this, and I thought I needed to wait and write just the right words when the tears stopped. But I owe the little guy -- my Joseph Pulitzer Krauter -- so much. Amazing companion, always there for me. And he loved camping out in the newsroom, both here in Bradenton and in my Star-Telegram haunt in Bedford, Texas.

My little miracle. He beat the odds and celebrated his 15th birthday, another Christmas, another New Year's... and tonight he's romping with Scout and Max McGee.

Here's to our Joey.

Remember the good times, because there were so many! You - both of you - were and are blessed.

Know that in these moments, which turn to days and then years, you made a difference in the life of this animal and this animal made a difference in your life. Your sadness today will bring you much comfort in the future.

This street of love was wide and two-way. So sorry to hear the sad news.

Sorry to hear of your loss. We will be putting down ours soon. A dear friend who always had a smile (or wagging tail) when I came home, always faithful, and forgave easily.
