Joni, Twin is living in our home in Oracle, AZ. She is enjoying the cool temperatures here and we are taking very good care of her. We are helping her with her allergies. We love her very much. Everyone who sees her stops to ask us where we got such a beautiful dog.

Although I never met you personally, I know everyone in our rescue thought highly of you and our dogs in your care always responded to your love and attention. Thank you for sharing your loving spirit and for always being so generous with your time. We will miss you.

For the past several years I have known Joni as a very kind and generous supporter of rescue collies in the Southwest Collie Rescue program. She could always be counted on to without question take in any collies we needed help with. Some of these collies were very challenging and Joni always managed to make it look easy. There were a few that we just did not have any other options for and they seemed to thrive with Joni and over extended periods. I often felt guilty for relying so heavily on Joni but she never complained and without question accepted the collies. In the rescue business we call people like Joni angels and believe in the afterlife that she is with the collies she loved and that previously passed. We will miss her here.

Joni, you have always been a great friend. Will miss you at ringside and in life. When you said you wanted a Belgian Tervuren like Wolf, I asked if you were sure. I am so glad you were the one to be owned by Sly. Love, Jean

Joni, we will miss you dearly and so will our rescue collies. Rest in peace.

To all of you who had the honor of knowing Joni, you know we lost an Angel. I met Joni shortly after I moved to AZ only 7 years ago and shared her love of dogs and in particular, collies. Joni fostered many collies for Southwest Collie Rescue over the years. Many required nursing care, to heal their wounds, both physical and psychological. Joni cared for them as if they were her own dogs. I hope her example carries forward in the hearts of others. I will most surely miss her.

Joni will be missed by her friends and family. The collie breed was improved with Joni's efforts. She wanted collies that could work and that were healthy. She strived for collie health and those collies that needed help. The collie fancy has lost a protector of collies. Diane Wagener

My deepest sympathies for your loss. I will miss Joni's laugh & positive energy. She always made me smile. May you find peace and solace in the memories that you hold dear in your heart.

Joni, you were a true inspiration to the collie fancy with your brilliant handling of 4 collies at CCA National 2010 in CA. I was amazed...you will be sorely missed!

Joni, we only just met and got to know each other a little better.
I am so pleased we shared the special moments together that we had.
I will miss you.

The heart of a dog owner, breeder is exposed by the reaction of the dogs they own or those that have been sold. All her dogs loved Joni and found pleasure in her company. The dogs that were sold to good homes never forgot her. My Sabina would be so joyous when she heard Joni's voice or when we met at the park or our houses. It was so obvious they still had the special bond formed when she was a puppy. Sabina inhaled Joni's presence and she was always so happy to see her again, she never forgot her. Neither will I. Joni will always be in my heart and life. Rest easy dear friend, you will never be forgotten. You will always be loved. I love you girl, miss you terribly. We will look after your dear Ed as you looked after me when Jim died. You are so special. May God bless you.

Joni will be missed by canine world, as well as many of us people who enjoyed your sense of humor. Will miss you at the shows and ringside, you were willing to jump in and help at all the shows. You will be the spirit of the canines in heaven.

On this entire earth, I can't think of anyone more dedicated and caring towards dogs, or any animals, than my most dear sister-in-law Joni Allen. She always exhibited a ceaseless passion and energy toward her dog sporting and kennel care, and was the most compassionate animal advocate I have ever known. I will miss my wife Beth's sister so very much and in so many ways...her brother-in-law, Mark.

Joni was such a treasure. So very grateful that our Golden Retrievers, Chuck, Taj, & Kim brought us together so we would be friends. You taught me so much, not only with your knowledge of dogs, but also with your generosity of spirit. It will not be the same here without you. What a thoughtful, kind, supportive, and fun friend you were to me and Dean. You are dearly missed. Thank you for all the years of friendship, fun and laughter. Dog shows won't be the same without your smiling face, constant encouragement, and our funny travel misadventures... I will always look for you ringside Joni, until we meet again... You were a true blessing in our lives, and now you shine down from heaven. We will never forget you. Hug the kids for us.

Joni, you always remained a dear friend to me even though we were far apart. You were always showing me support through my many illness'and Gary's lost bout with cancer. We stayed in touch even though we live in a very busy world. We still cared about each other.
You always told me how sweet Ed and his family was and how you loved them all so much!
Meeting you and Helen in Beauty School was a blessing to all of us. We had such a great time together Always! We were together again once more when I married Gary and you came back to PA. You me and Helen were laughing together again. I will Never forget you Joni! and will always love you!

And in the End...the Love you take...is equal to the Love, you Make..
