In loving memory of “Big Bud.”
by Daniel McElroy Jr.


We just got some sad news. Our old friend “Big Bud” passed away on Thanksgiving Day. Bud’s mom Kelly is one of our oldest clients. She’s been with us since our humble beginnings on Madison St. Her first dog Winston passed a few years back and when she got Bud, she brought him right in. He’s been a fixture in daycare ever since.

Bud was about the mellowest (If “mellowest” isn’t a word, it is now.) boy we ever did meet. His name came from the fact that when she first adopted him, he was just the tiniest bit overweight. Kelly took care of that and got him down to a much healthier weight. His strong affinity for food made keeping him trim a challenge, but Kelly did a great job.

Big Bud was one of our “tester dogs.” If we ever needed to see how social a dog was with a big, friendly, mellow dog, Big Bud was the first one I wanted. He was non-threatening and calm. He was a gentleman to a fault.

We learned a while back that Bud was having liver issues. He was a senior dog by then, so we knew the inevitable outcome. Unfortunately, these things always come too soon and Kelly has had to say goodbye. We offer her and her family our deepest condolences.
