Rest in Peace, Buddy. Your gifts to this world have been innumerable! Thank you for your life and service! I am so happy to have known you. (And Simon is too, even though he wouldn't admit it. ;) You were the biggest dog he ever lived with (albeit briefly) and I will never forget how calmly you handled his posturing. He couldn't help but think you were a pretty cool guy.) -Barrie Finger and Simon

Your love and compassion for animals is truly inspiring - keep up the good work! Love, The Hudson Family & Homer and Shiba.
