Rudy "Ru Ru" Ryan

May 8, 2013 — November 28, 2023

Passed away November 28th, 2023 after a brief battle with liver cancer. Predeceased by his original owners Bill & Carol Lombard. Survived by his loving parents James & Katra Ryan; brother Donut; soon-to-be brother James Ryan III, grandpawrents Lynn & Jim, and Fatemeh & James; Aunt Schoochie & Uncle Lou, Aunt Taylor & Uncle Matt, Auntie Sep & Bobby; cousins Mckenna & Reese; and many other extended family members and friends.

Rudy was originally adopted by Bill & Carol Lombard where he became their loyal lap dog. After their abilities declined, James and Katra were lucky enough to have Rudy move in with them. He became the love of their lives and was referred to as “their prince”. He was the most polite, kind mannered, happiest dog ever. All he wanted was to sit on someone’s lap and be pet. He enjoyed summers in the Thousand Islands where he would swim around in his shark fin life-jacket, going for walks around the neighborhood where he would sniff and pee on everything he passed, and eating Abbott’s in bed with his dad and brother.

His passing has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled, we will miss him for all our days. Nothing can ever replace our Ru Ru Shark.
