In Memory of Argus

February 3, 2015

King Argus was as regal and dignified as any loving and caring royalty could be. He took the changes from New York City, to Connecticut, and Phoenix with all the style and elegance of a true benevolent monarch. He loved to eat snow as much as he loved to bask in the desert sun. Running in wide open fields was as effortless to him as swimming in a luxurious pool. When we adopted other pugs, he taught them his regal nature, as well as how to play fetch, tug-of-war, and alert the royal staff to the slightest unexpected sound.

Argus will be sorely missed, he leaves a hole impossible to fill, but his kindhearted nature and personality will be long remembered by all who knew him. Farewell my King.

In Memory of Buddy

April 2010 -- Sept 12, 2014

Buddy was one of the sweetest dogs ever. He loved to go for a walk every morning and he liked every person and dog he met and wanted a tummy rub from everyone. He slept in our laps or next to us in our chairs and followed us around the house and yard. He had to fight his way through health issues over the four and a half years of his life. He saw lots of his vets and chiropractor during that time. Even with everything he went through, he kept his sweet temperament. His issues finally became insurmountable and we finally had to let him go.

He is gone but never forgotten. He was our precious boy. Rest in peace little Buddy.

In Memory of Koda

August 2003 – February 18, 2014

Koda was simply the greatest dog that ever lived. I guess I shouldn’t say “greatest dog that ever lived,” because he was one of us. When our other dogs, Lucy and Chip, were off being dogs, Koda was hanging out with us. He loved us more than life itself and I hope we did enough to show him the same. He was the leader of the pack, and we didn't realize until after he left just how much we looked to him to lead us as well. Whenever there was a suspicious sound, Koda would run to be by our side to protect us, while Lucy and Chip went to investigate. A simple glance would have him jumping up from his resting spot to run up to you and get all up in your face, for everyone knows that eye contact means “Koda, hurry, come here.” He welcomed any opportunity to be close to us, in your lap, or directly underneath your feet. The house is not the same without him and our lives will be forever changed, but we are lucky to have known him, to have called him our family and to have been loved by him unconditionally.
