The store mascot and “true” owner of Dexter’s Deli, passed away in December, 2010 at the age of 17.

Dexter was a beautiful soul. He had a blessed life, starting out as an adopted pound puppy from Missouri and becoming the mascot for his own natural pet stores. Dexter had a spirit for adventure and a zest for life that carried him all the way to the end. Not only was he a loyal companion to Tori and her family, he was a teacher for all of us, our lives and our pet’s lives all the richer because of his flame. What a life he had, one of fun and silly Dexter moments, and his role as a trailblazer and living affirmation of the magnificent force of the holistic human/animal experience. Dexter will be forever sewn into our hearts and we are all so very grateful to of had him touch our lives.
