Cherry has to frequently visit the vet to receive ongoing care for her eyes, and to deal with a few other health issues — but her mom makes sure she gets the best possible care.
“Everywhere Cherry goes, she’s a little star,” Thomas said. “When she goes to the vet, everyone fawns over her. Mary has all these cute little outfits for her, she gets her groomed, she gets cute little bows in her hair. So she loves to dress Cherry up in little outfits and Cherry loves it, and she tucks her into bed and Cherry just enjoys all the love that she gets, because she definitely didn’t get it in the first 12 years.”
