In a second post, Thomas wrote, “ I’m sad today but it’s a nice sadness – I just loved this dog so much. He’s so handsome – don’t you think he aged like George Clooney? Bilby has been pretty glum but we’re working through it with freeze dried liver.”

Bilby, a groodle, was adopted by Thomas during the COVID 19 quarantine, in April 2020.
