Ari’s Memorial

Ari was born as the largest and most relaxed of his litter. He was brought home at 9 weeks of age and was raised and grew with us over his 14 years of life.  

He was big on people food and once leapt on the dinner table to eat a whole pizza when I left it unguarded. When our kids were born he mostly ignored them except when it was eating time.  He would religiously hang around their highchairs waiting for scraps.  

He loved to chase balls and actually lost an eye to an unfortunate ball accident when he was 7 years old. Like a trooper, he didn’t let the small things get him down.  

He was huge on sleeping and could often be found laying in our laundry baskets when the opportunity was available. If you yelled the phrase “Ari party!” he would leap in the air and do spins. 

Most of all, Ari was loving and sweet to the people that mattered to him most. Towards the end, he lost his hearing, sight and suffered arthritis and heart issues. He passed away surrounded by love at home. It was peaceful, much like his life.  

He is missed dearly and will remain a big part of our family in memory.  



Ari was born on March 1st, 2007, and passed away at the age of 14 years old due to a variety of ailments from old age on May 2nd, 2021.
