Heaven's Sweetest Angel

I knew Stubby before I met him, Through his blog I could read his soul and knew he was a sweetie and when I met him at the NIPRA Valenpug Party, he was easy to spot - of course he was wearing one of Melissa's trademark sweater vests! I had the opportunity to visit with him a few times after that initial meeting and to say he was a special pug would be an understatement. Stubby went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday, but he will not be forgotten. His sweet soul has touched so many people that his memory will keep him alive in our hearts. He is running free and happy now, smiling as only Stubby can! Enjoy an unlimited supply of Popeye's my furiend!

That first picture was extremely difficult, this is where our family met as well~

We are very sorry and very saddened~

He was given a great life and cared for deeply~

He had a big heart and a kind smile~

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family~

Such a beautiful tribute.
There are just no words to describe how much Stubby will be missed.
Stubby touched so many lives.
Our hearts are breaking for his mom and dad.

Very nicely put Karen! Stubby was indeed a very kind soul and had the sweetest disposition and the greatest parents that loved him more than I could describe too!

Your pics are great and I still laugh when I see those pics of Salinger and Stubby's Popeye's feast with you that day last summer! SO cute!

Very sweet post...nice job my friend!

We never got to meet Stubby, but we are sad for his family.

And we will say a prayer that they will be comforted, because he will be missed.
