Pinkerton Wonderful Dog, Best Friend

In Memory of Pinkerton – a wonderful dog, and best friend

Pinkerton made the Friary her “home away from home.” She made our clients smile and served as a source of comfort during the admissions process.  Pinkerton touched so many lives, with just a friendly paw. Our canine “team member” will be missed.
