Our thoughts are with Cheryl and Dave Gockley in the death of DJ, their 11 year old boxer. DJ was brought home when he was 8 weeks old, and called Dave Jr. which is how he got the name DJ. Cheryl was not extremely happy at first since she had just lost her cat, but grew to love him deeply. DJ liked to pull the clothes off the hanger outside and the clothes would be all over. He had 1 human brother, Adam and 2 human sisters, Taylor and Marissa. He also had a dog sister, Indie, and a half brother, Leo, and they shared the same dad. He was a great dog with kids. DJ loved car rides and he always had to have the window down no matter the weather. He also took over the front seat and made Cheryl sit in the back. He found joy in chasing squirels and rabbits. He loved to play fight with Dave and go for walks. He gave the softest kisses and was such a kind pup. When Dave had his snacks of cheese and deer bologna he would share with DJ. He knew exactly what time dinner was and he would let Dave and Cheryl know. He was a very loved boy and he will be missed dearly by everyone.
