“Keyonie”

Keyonie, one-of-a-kind Jack Russell Terrier, of Rockford unexpectedly went home to doggie heaven on Sunday, August 16, 2009.

“KiKi” was a character of her own—smart, adventurous and stubbornly lovable. She was a constant presence in the short stretch connecting Pearl and Donald streets in downtown Rockford since 1997. She was a beloved friend and companion to two families: Jennifer, Katelyn and Kaleb Eldred, and Jerry and Rosee Douthett.

The Eldred family raised her to be a loving dog who loved to be around people. She was a source of joy and laughter to this family, and a mischievous companion to their cat, Emmie. For the last six years you could see Keyonie constantly riding around (hanging out of the car) with Jerry and Rosie and more recently, riding with Jerry on his scooter. Keyonie would do anything for Jerry and Rosie and loved to perform her tricks for them.

Keyonie will be forever missed because there is no one else like her. She was a furry individual, a free spirit, and an inspiration to those who knew and loved her. “Rest in peace, KiKi!”
