Chubador Maurice Meador “Chubs” was born October 21, 2008. He passed away on December 19, 2022. He was named Chubs because when he was a baby his stomach would drag on the floor,and he would always try to get into the refrigerator to find food. He never quite lived up to his name but enjoyed eating everything he could find except for peas, he always hated those. He was our sweet little boy with a loud bark. He barked ferociously at dogs twice his size but would also run and hide when he would see dish bubbles coming from the sink. He was protective over his “babies”, a stuffed lobster and a toy teddy bear he slept with when we tried to keep him off the bed…. that lasted less than a week. He had somewhat of a checkered past and although stubborn he made loving him easy.
He stepped into the role as big brother naturally. He enjoyed alerting us when people he did not recognize were at the door or when he felt others were stepping out of line. We nicknamed him “Old Man” because it just fit. He hated going to the groomers but loved to strut around after he got his hair cut. He had always had a tough exterior but was loved for his big heart. He enjoyed laying on our lap, cuddling under blankets, and dressing up in his favorite bow tie or sweater. He also enjoyed training our parrots to bark, nestling by the Christmas tree, and watching cartoons in the morning.
He is survived by his human mom, dad, and brother, his two dog sisters Babe and Coco, his two friends (parrots) Iago and Dora, and his “nemesis” Simba the cat. His memory will be attached to us, and he will be in our hearts always.
