Our honorary mascot: "Kadon"

We had a namesake: the adorable puppy shown here.

Dayle Hodge, a friend, fan and customer of very long standing, wrote us on December 31, 2001, "I got a dog for Christmas. His name is ... KADON ... Pretty cool, huh? He is a Cairn Terrier. There have been many questions about his name, and I'm always proud to tell them about you and your games."

Thanks, Dayle, that's a fantastic endorsement!

On November 17, 2019, we were saddened to receive this letter from Dayle:

"Friends and Family —

This morning our beloved Kadon went to sleep for the last time. He went peacefully. Kathy, Erin, Callie, Baelfyre and Dayle were all with him. We are all with a heavy heart and much sadness.

Our best friend and only son, he will always live on in our hearts. We never take for granted the unconditional love that Kadon showed us every single day.

Kadon was with us for 17-1/2 years. During his life with us he had: run away from home, been hit by a car, jumped out the window of a moving car, and fallen down the steps, among many other (mis)adventures..."

Here is a tableau of photos in memory of this much-loved companion:
