In Memory

Bucky Wanner
(passed away August 17, 2016, at 10+ years old)

Bucky was spirited little fellow. My family first met Bucky when he was a puppy at PAWS years ago. He had boundless energy when Jon drove him from the kennel to be shown for adoption. He found the best family! Cathy and Adrian Wanner and their family adored him. His tricolor marking showed that he was part beagle, and, if more proof was needed, he loved to eat. The terrier part showed up in his wiry coat. He loved patrolling his backyard and, when he wasn't poking around, he found someone's feet to sit on. He had friends and admirers across the Northeast, who he periodically visited. His quirky ways made everyone smile.

Bucky came to stay with us just recently, while his family was abroad. He arrived with only one eye, having lost the other to a tumor. Kayden and Rosie were good new companions - three rescued beagles. Here (in the photo) they are policing the neighborhood from our deck. Bucky was unique - quiet, quizzical, and determined. Many thanks to Dr. Jonathan Baldys for his excellent care. We will miss you, Bucky!
