WILDWOOD— There was an outpouring of support and encouraging words for the family of Jack Morey Tuesday night, when it was announced on the Morey’s Piers Facebook page that they had lost their three-year-old Weimaraner, Rory. 

“Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers regarding the passing of Rory,” the statement from the family reads. “If you tolerated him, we thank you. If you loved him, he loved you right back. As many of you know, pets are a very special part of ones family, perhaps it is simply the unconditional ‘love’ that we humans all seek.”

The post was accompanied by a short video dedicated to Rory’s life, set to Kid Rock’s “Born Free.” That video can be seen here.

Rory was usually found at Jack’s side for press conferences, interviews, or just a stroll down the beach. He was the mascot for the Soggy Dollar Beach Bar at Surfside Pier and the inspiration for Morey’s Piers’ “Gone to the Dogs” event last summer, when Ocean Oasis Waterpark was opened to dogs for the day.

As one user wrote on the page, Rory was “a happy, loving dog, and what a fabulous life he lived.”
