Flash’s Eulogy:

“He is, by far, the most talented, athletic, and beautiful dog I’ve ever known. He was the rock of our family – the normal and sane one. He was also incredibly smart. He had the coolest eyes, best ears, cutest nubby, and the loudest bark ever. I love my dogs all equally, but Flash was my favorite. It’s no mistake that one of his nicknames was “Perfection.” If I were to clone a dog, it’d be him. Every dog in our house has heard the line, “Can you act a little more like Flash?” I don’t know how I got so lucky to have him. It’s hard to encompass all he was in one post. Did I mention he was the best yet? Because that about sums him up. 

When any of our little dogs would go outside, he’d race outside and stand guard. One time, he protected little Twitter from a hawk that was flying low and eyeing her. We didn’t see until it would’ve been too late, but Flash was watching the whole time. He just did that type of stuff on his own. Hardly had to teach that dog anything. He had so much common sense, but like, the dog version. He was a go anywhere, do anything type of dog because he was so nice and calm. He knew he was big and powerful, but only used it for good things.

He was a pretty simple dog. He only cared about the stuff that really mattered. He loved good food, sleeping comfortably, rolling in the grass, chasing down and jumping for anything you could throw, and protecting anyone who needed it. He didn’t ask for much. I don’t think there was anything he wanted to do in life that he missed out on.

I always made sure to share my food with him. That was important to him. He had an iron stomach and he lived to eat, so it was only fair. He was also the best food beggar of all time. He always sat so politely, with the greatest “can I has some?” eyes ever. Sometimes he’d throw in a sit pretty, one of his favorite tricks, just for good measure. It’s no wonder he got everything he wanted. Steak, bacon, and avocado were his favorite foods. He only ever counter-surfed for avocado skins I left, I think only because he knew I was done. 😉 He hardly ever did anything to get in trouble.

He never had anything to prove. He didn’t have a very competitive personality and would let Sketch, Torch, and Sora just race each other to be the first for everything. Flash didn’t mind as long as he got what he wanted. He was patient. He was probably the laziest of all the really good frisbee dogs ever. It’s amazing how much he accomplished, despite him putting in pretty minimal effort most of the time. Just to name some, he did commercials for Target and Canidae, photoshoots for Kyra Sundance books, iHeartDogs, and more, countless magazines and newspapers, all of the CGC titles, first McNab to get a perfect score on the Trick Dog Champion title, Purina IDC podium finisher, no misses at his NFL Chargers game performance, competed in countless world championships and many top finishes, and multiple time CA State Champion. These were many firsts for his breed too. He was pretty dang good at everything.

He was never the same after Sketch died in 2019. He was so intelligent and strong, but also sensitive. He seemed a bit lost after. I’m still lost too, so I know how he felt. Even moreso now without Flash too… I can’t believe he’s gone. It’s not fair. He was too great for this world. I didn’t deserve him and neither did anyone else. The world didn’t deserve a being as perfect as him. Figures he would get an aggressive cancer that would kill him in a matter of weeks. The good die young, I guess. It was just way too fast and way too soon. It’s just not f#cking fair. This world is cruel. I miss everything about him. He was the best dog of all time. I await the day that I get to see him again. He was perfect.”
