Gwinn-Dell's Chug-A-Bug

October 31, 1988 - September 2, 2006


AKA "Bug"

AKA "Bug-Lee"


                                                                                          Loved You Best

 So this is where we part, my friend

And youíll run on, around the bend. 

Gone from sight, but not from mind,

new pleasures there youíll surely find.


I will go on, Iíll find the strength.

Life measures quality, not its length.

One long embrace before you leave,

Share one last look, before I grieve.


There are others, that much is true,

But they be they, and they arenít you. 

And I fair, impartial, or so I thought

will remember well all youíve taught.

 Your place Iíll Hold, you will be missed.

The fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.

 And as you journey to your final rest,

take with you this . . .

I loved you best.

~ Jim Willis

Chug as a Puppy

Chug was our beloved Pug-a-Hua-Hua (Pug-Chihuahua).  He wandered in the door as a puppy.  Don went out to get the paper and the little guy was trotting past our house on a busy main street.  When Don spoke to him and asked what he was doing out all by himself, Chug made a quick turn and trotted into the living room and into our hearts. Chug raised each of our Wolfhounds and at age 17, almost 18, was still the leader of the pack.  He went  to more shows than most show dogs and made many friends in the Wolfhound world. Everyone who met Chug fell in love with him.  Of all the dogs who have shared our lives, few have ever equaled the place the Chugster holds in our hearts.  Chug  was the love of our lives.
