Jessi and I got you before we got married. You came into our lives at eight weeks old and graced us with over 14 years of companionship, caring, and love. You were loyal, friendly, and brilliant, sometimes too smart for your own good.

In fact, you were so friendly and delighted to meet people that you even turned your fair share of “I’m not a dog person” folks into fans. And yet, you could be so gentle and patient that you passed the emotional therapy dog test with flying colors.

Thank you for the tail wags, playing catch, kisses, walks, and naps. You were our first dog and the best dog ever.

Love you buddy. Rest in peace.
