5/6/2006 - 9/23/2020It is with the heaviest of hearts to say this...Patrón has moved on from this world & crossed over the Rainbow🌈bridge.
The love we felt for and the pain we currently feel is indescribable. He is/was part of our world & was always included in our happiest places. He was our King of the castle, wake up call, sun dreamer, workout partner, & my little cuddle bug. He gave the best “yawn” kisses, forced morsel-nose kisses on the cheek(with growl included)for those lucky enough to get one. He had a champion physic & stature like no other;standing tall & proud at his best. His style..well...from what others would say😏”over the top” speaking of all his outrageous wardrobe outfits & costumes. Either way with ALL the attention he would receive because of his Halloween🎃costumes or the happiness he would bring to others..Patrón made such an impact on so many young & old. He was top notch & it showed often. Patrón’s personality was one of a kind as it seemed like he always made it known to everyone that he was the ONE the ONLY Patrón!
He loved playing with his motorized pet-mouse named Gerome, sock monkey, & anything really that moved or made annoying sounds. And above all Ducky, his first toy ever! His list of favorite toys can go on forever..almost like he created his own little toy kingdom throughout his lifetime. Patrón truly was royalty...the KING👑
He liked shredded chicken, scrambled eggs, greenies treats, & especially Mimi’s cookies. He also liked going on long walks, being outside, being the center of attention when socializing w friends or family(like he wanted to be a part of all conversations sitting in my arms contently & just listening), hanging out in the garage w Dustin, ripping open his Christmas/Birthday gifts & always finding the perfect spot to soak up the sun beam reflecting in the windows.
He disliked swimming pools, water sprinklers, being in a car that was not moving, making tongue faces at him, cold weather, & the sound of the shower because he thought it was always trying to get me.

💚🌈Patrón passed peacefully in my arms on his own terms;Hearing our voices saying how much we love him & to be at peace, flying high w the angels🕊We know that you are having fun chasing rabbits & ducks w Lucky as your sidekick in doggy heaven. We Love you Always, Forever, & a Day...buddy words can not describe the love that we have for you & we miss you soo so much! It brings us comfort knowing you have your wings..Rest In Peace Patrón.

Thank you so much Dustin and Tara for the very kind words. I am so sorry for the loss of this precious little guy. I did not get to meet Patron but it was clear that he was a special and bright light. He was the best little companion anyone could hope for and I know he will hold special place in all the hearts that knew him. Rest easy and peacefully Patron <3Miranda Shaw - January 5, 2021
Dustin and Tara,
What a beautifully written memorial so deserving to Patron. He is all that plus a 100 times more !!
My heart aches for y’all as my heart is broken too . He was my grand pup and I loved him dearly❤️. I will miss his yawning kisses and his growly morsel (muzzle) kisses. I always stayed on his good side by making him scrambled eggs whenever he came to visit and I loved watching him eat my decorated sugar cookies.
Here are some words to describe how I saw him.
Persistent, protector , playful, passionate, agile, aggressive, attention getter, antsy, talented , territorial, tenacious, true,
Rotten (spoiled) , raucous , remarkable, obedient, original , observant ,one of a kind, nimble, nervous , needy.
Patron, You were truly mans best friend and a true companion and it showed in your relationship with your Pet Parents over the last 14 years. You served them well and when it came time to cross the Rainbow Bridge, there was no hesitation of earning your wings.
Patron , you will be greatly missed, but you will also be greatly remembered ❤️🐾❤️🐾
Love, Mimi
