This is Moxie. She’s an absolute good girl who works hard each day, making it easier for her mom. And she surely does a great job.
Since meeting one another, Katie Harries and Moxie have been head over heels with each other. Moxie goes to work with her mom and is always by her side when at home. Simply, they are rarely apart.
“Moxie helps me every day. She’s truly been a huge blessing,” said Katie. Most often than not, Katie injures herself due to a dislocation whenever she bends over. Sometimes, her blood pressure condition would even cause her to lose consciousness. Moxie helps avoid these instances by picking up things her mom drops, retrieving her shoes, and grabbing anything Katie needs.
Katie is diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, a disorder in the connective tissues. Most recently, a surgical procedure had to be done to help reduce the symptoms. Sadly, that meant having to stay in the hospital for a couple of weeks, away from Moxie.
Katie knew how difficult it is to be away from Moxie. She hates it herself. So before going into rehab, she decided to FaceTime with her sweet pup. It was intended to be a fun time because Katie had no idea how Moxie would react or if she would even react at all.
After almost 2 weeks of being apart, Moxie surely missed Katie. And she’s overjoyed to see her mom again, even if it’s just through the screen of a mobile phone. It was such an adorable moment.
Watch Moxie’s reaction here:
I have not been able to see Moxie for the past 13 days since I’ve been in the hospital and it really has been tough being away. I have definitely missed her quite a bit. Tomorrow, I finally get to see her and I can not wait! However, until then, thanks to Apple and technology, we got to have a little FaceTime session. 😉Her reaction/response! 😭❤️🐾FULL VIDEO with us reuniting: youtu.be/vu6AJ-bY-Rk

Moxie instantly recognized her mom’s voice and started licking the screen as if she was licking Katie’s face. “I teared up,” said Katie.
The pair got reunited the following day. Moxie barely contained her excitement so she jumped over to her mom’s lap. Katie was a bit concerned about her neck’s cervical fusion, but soon enough realized there was nothing for her to worry about. Moxie approached her in the most gentle way she could.
