“I can imagine how devastating this is,” he said. “My dog was my life.”

Page organizer Danielle O’Rourke got a dog named Lucy from Kraemer’s business, she said in a GoFundMe post.
“How much Ron loved dogs just for his personal experience of his business, his voice in the videos he always shares, and my Lucy is the best I’ve ever received. It was one of the gifts, “O’Rourke said.
