The Dog

Lady “PJ” Cuddlesworth was born in New York City, where she caroused with her many canine colleagues, most notably, the late Paulie Bacon. Central Park was her Happy Place. It was there she first learned the fine art of drinking spring water from the bottle on hot summer days…

… and engaged in her mommy’s favorite lawn game: Bowling For PJ.

Her past times included getting her backside scratched…

A well-behaved dog with a wry sense of humor, PJ would occasionally do something inordantly cheeky, like scratching up the Memory Foam mattress pad…

On September 8, 2012 PJ passed peacefully with her vet’s loving assistance. She was approximately 11-13 years old.

PJ was loved by everyone and made thousands of adoring fans in the course of her travels. She is sorely missed by her best friends Mommy, Daddy, Puss-Puss, Uncle James, Buddy and Al.

We are all better for having known her.
