I first met Courage [along w his nemesis, Victor the English Bulldog] in fall 2001 when they lived in Kirkland WA. When not socializing, cuddling or napping, he was on the quest for that next treat.
Victor hated most dogs, incl Courage, and only liked 4 people-- I'm glad I was one of them. 💘 He was somewhat of a bully to Courage so I kept a close watch anytime they were in the same space.👀

Courage The Compassionate.
Poor Oscar. He was in and out of the hospital in his final months.
In the following weeks, Courage still sat outside my office but it was obvious something had affected his spirit.
Resilient Courage eventually bounced back. Here he is 3 mos later as Batman with Superman Elvis walking around Greenlake shortly after he turned 7.

One of the 10 times Courage ever barked. In Hillsboro, Oregon w/Elvis. "You have to stand for the national anthem before we play ball!"
|Auzzie adored Courage and delighted in hanging out w him.|

|Hercules and Courage.|
|Boz stayed w us for a few months.|
Courage became fast friends w 💛 Bozley the Great Dane, summer of 2012. He played big brother to young Boz, kept him in line via his adorably unique puggish style. Both Herc and Boz sported amazingly expressive faces.
When hens 🐔 Madonna and Beyoncé 🐔 first arrived, Courage was enthralled, gave chase. He's fast when he wants something and quickly caught up w the girls (I set down my phone to make sure it was a peaceful meeting). After he got a chance to sniff them, they all lived harmoniously. Silkies 🐔 Paris and Nicky Hilton 🐔 soon joined The Trinity in 2013.
