2005 (ish) – 2014
Pete Hochstetler passed away on February 4, 2014. He was believed to be a Catahoula Leopard dog, presumably born in Southern Alabama in early 2005. He had been a resident of the Hochstetler home, having adopted them in the summer of 2005. He chose to keep them after
they found him he found them in some bushes near their home.
He was believed to be an active member of the Jack Springs Doggie Fight Club, and was known for his prowess and strength and incredible will to live. He enjoyed the many things that a dog life has to offer, such as eating, sleeping in the sun, rolling in gross smelling things, and cozying up to the lady dogs in the nighborhood.
Pete was a veteran of many battles associated with a dog’s life, having survived being shot, getting hit by multiple cars and trucks, snakebites, and countless fights with many different kinds of animals.
Pete fought his last fight on Sunday, and, unfortunately, lost a subsequent battle with infections in his wounds.
Pete is survived by his human parents, four human siblings, one human brother-in-law, a cousin dog, many girlfriends and countless offspring (fondly known as RePetes).
A Celebration of Life service was held on the evening of February 4, at approximately 6:00 pm in the backyard.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you quietly take a nap in a sunny spot in your yard today, to honor Pete’s memory.
