In memory of Winston

Story submitted 2010-03-03
Winston became part of the White family (joining Sandy, Scott and Oskar) in 2005 when he was adopted from DRNA in Greenville, SC. He quickly warmed up to famiy home life and spent a good two years enjoying playing with his Dachshund/Jack Russel Terrier brother, Oskar. They even took trips to the beach! Sadly, Winston became sick with inexplicable liver and kidney failure and passed away. His family was so sad, but opened their hearts again to another DRNA dog, Taffy in 2007.

Winston's spirit lives on, and he's now on a memorial on the playground at a Ronald McDonald House! The playground was created by a Leadership Greenville Class (36) through the Greenville Chamber, and Winston's memory is honored. His family wanted to honor him in a special way, and now his spirit lives on among other families who could use a friendly face, tail wags and puppy kisses (Winston gave those like no other!).
