~ Aleisha and Jerry ~

Over a year ago, Aleisha welcomed Golden Retriever pup, Jerry, into her life. Since then, they have become the best of friends and improve each other’s lives hugely. 

Aleisha and her partner, Steve, had been discussing getting a furry friend for quite a while. In 2021, they had heard about a litter of puppies who were looking for homes. Aleisha thought that one pup in particular, named Jerry, was adorable and a perfect fit for their family. Soon, he was on a plane and on his way to his new home. Once he arrived and Aleisha opened the crate, she called his name and he looked up. At that moment, Aleisha knew it was truly meant to be.

Having Jerry has had a huge impact on Aleisha. Each day is full of adventure. Whether exploring a new park or beach or simply going for a walk around the block, they love having this time to just enjoy each other’s company. Growing up, Aleisha was often around dogs, however, Jerry is a lot more independent than other dogs. This makes their time together even more special, when Jerry decides to snuggle with Aleisha or give her a big doggie kiss.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Jerry helped Aleisha immensely. It was a stressful time and, as a midwife, she was afraid of what the pandemic might mean for her job. With Jerry, he brought endless joy, laughter and love to each day and helped her get through this challenging time. Because of him, she would look forward to every day and, even now, Jerry wakes his human up by laying beside her in bed until she gets up. 

The bond that Aleisha and Jerry share is truly special. No matter what happens, they know they have each other and for they, they are very grateful. Every day is made better simply because they have one another.
