Yankee was born on Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, 2008. Bringing instant happiness and love to all those he met and came across. Yankee is preceded in death by his fur brother, Duncan. He is survived by his human mommas Marissa Cardoza, Dina Castillo and numerous family members who all loved him deeply.
Yankee filled our home and hearts with nothing but joy, happiness and love. Yankee was welcomed into our home with love, and in return he loved us and showed us that until his final breath. He lived a great life and made our lives even greater. Yankee leaves behind so many memories that we will cherish and hold near to our heart.
Yankee enjoyed watching football games, hanging around during a bbq or party, car rides, and traveling. He loved cuddling, kisses, rubs, naps, and snacks.

We couldn’t have asked for a better fur baby. He was perfect and loyal. We were blessed to be by his side to help make his transition as peaceful and comfortable as possible. We loved him and he loved us just as much or even more. And for that we will always be eternally grateful. Rest easy our precious boy.
