In Memoriam: Ike


We are sad to announce this month the loss of a much loved Bagle (basset/beagle) Ike. He and his family, LeRoy and Shannon Parker, were keen supporters of the Calgary Basset Rescue. Ike’s family has this to say about his passing:

“We’re heartbroken to share the news that our beloved beagle/basset, Ike Parker (“The Dude”), passed away on December 2, 2015. Ike joined our family as a puppy way back in 1999, and every single day of his 16 years was a true character and sweet soul.

A man of simple pleasures, Ike loved food, naps, road trips, following his nose, playing with other dogs, looking handsome, and most of all, his family. The feeling was entirely mutual, and we miss him every day. What a wonderful gift it was to have him in our lives for 16 amazing years.”
