Junior Evans
Loyal and Kind Friend
Shop Dog at Hammertown Barn

It is with great sadness in our hearts we let you know of a deep loss here in our Hammertown Community.  Junior, the sharply-dressed Boston Terrier who welcomed customers to our Pine Plains location, passed away last Saturday.  He lived a wonderful life, but sadly, too short.  He was brave in his long illness and lived well beyond what we all (including his veterinarian) thought possible.

A fixture at Hammertown, Junior worked here with his human dad, Drew Evans, for over 5 years.  He was a gentleman, kind and giving.  He walked his own path, demanded little from those around him, and was a brave, gentle and caring dog. He loved the Hammertown life…Cisco sofas were his favorite, and with a sheepskin thrown over the cushion, well, he was just delighted.  He knew children loved him, and although he sometimes wanted to keep to himself, he was always kind, patient and giving with them.

A vital part of our Hammertown team, Junior will be missed dearly by all of us. Our hearts go out to Drew as well as Junior’s canine sister, Iris.
