Dooley: July 26, 1996 - August 9, 2004

This web page is a tribute to the all-too-short life of Dooley the cat.

Dooley was basically a dog in cat's clothing. He insisted on going for his daily walk. When someone knocked on the door, he ran up to see who it was. He liked to go for rides in the car (even to the vet!). But his real trademark was that he scoured the neighborhood for things to bring Mark. Often, Mark was treated to a 2AM wakeup call as Dooley was proudly announcing a new gift he had just brought in. Here is a partial list of goodies:
