Everyone knows that it is impossible to be sad while holding a puppy, including Joey Feek, who recently had the chance to visit with a canine companion herself.
In a post to Joey + Rory‘s Facebook page, the couple shared a photo of Joey giving kisses to a yellow lab puppy. Joey is shown resting in her hospital bed as she holds the puppy, and although you can’t see all of her face, you can tell from the look in her eyes that she found happiness in that moment.
The puppy was there to play with Joey + Rory’s nearly two-year-old daughter, Indiana, but made a special connection with Joey in the process.
“….some baby puppies came to play with Indy the other day, but I think her mama loved their visit the most,” the couple captioned the photo.
Joey has been visited by many special guests recently, and has found bits of cheer in each visit. Recently, her sister-in-law Marcy stopped by to help lift Joey’s spirits.
Marcy and Joey developed a close relationship over the years, teaming up to establish a restaurant and bakery called Marcy Jo’s near the Feek’s home in Tennessee.
We’re so glad that Joey is able to find some joy in these special visits from her friends, both human and canine.
Our prayers continue to go out to Joey, Rory, and their family.
