Unconditional Stories #4: “Better than a Birthday Cake”

Written by: Jane Sobel Klonsky, Project Unconditional

[Editor’s note: By now, you’re accustomed to seeing the wonderful photographs of older dogs by Jane Sobel Klonsky, which are part of her Project Unconditional. Jane’s daughter, Kacey, has been making short films that focus on her mom’s subjects. (See Laura and Ol’ Red, Walter and Mary, and Lacy and Sister Electra.)]

This new video by my talented daughter, Kacey Klonsky, introduces us to Joanne and Dennis, who live in Imperial Beach, California, with their seven rescue dogs, two of which are permanent fosters from Lionel’s Legacy. It is an Unconditional Story of senior-dog rescue. Dennis jokes that each year, finding Joanne a new rescue dog is “cheaper than buying a birthday present,” but he knows that this is exactly what will make her happy. (Thank you to The Grey Muzzle Organization for connecting Kacey and me with this wonderful organization.)
