Cherish and Share: Chevez's Story


Growing up, Leslie loved dogs. She always knew that she would have a pup of her own someday. That day arrived shortly after Leslie moved to Calgary in 2002 when she decided to adopt a puppy from the pet store as a birthday gift to herself. Chevez was only two months old and utterly adorable. Leslie couldn’t pass him up.

Chevez quickly became a permanent fixture in her life. From family vacations, to camping trips, to just lounging around the house, Chevez did literally everything with his people. “He was a huge part of our lives, was always there when you needed a bud to talk to or someone to comfort you. He really was our best friend.”

Some of Leslie’s favourite memories of Chevez are from when her children were born. Chevez bonded with them instantly. “He was by their side at all times, protecting them day and night.”

Chevez was a walking garburator—he loved to eat everything and anything. But his favourite treats were carrots. “He’d come running to the kitchen when he heard me peeling them,” laughs Leslie. Among his other passions, Chevez loved napping in the hot, summer sun, and he loved to carry around his stuffing-less gorilla toy. 

For the last few years of his life, Chevez was unable to go for walks and so his family spent quality time with him curled up on the couch for belly rubs and naps. Sadly, after fifteen loving years, Chevez passed away.

Leslie and her family elected to have Chevez’s impression painted to match his fur. They display it by the fireplace and Chevez’s favourite blue blanket, in the center of the living room, where the family spends most of their time together.
