Koda came into my life as a rescue from Alberta and was my constant companion from that day forward.
Very quickly I realised Koda had built a large bond with me and wanted to be constantly be by my side 24/7. When we moved back to Vancouver Island from Alberta, I was not able to bring Koda with me to my day job, so I started Dirty Dog Diesel as a way to be able to pursue my passion with Koda by my side everyday.
Koda is the namesake of the shop “Dirty Dog Diesel” simply for the fact that anyone who knew Koda knows he was always at the shop and smelt like diesel. Koda was happy to see anyone and everyone. He greeted you by casually sauntering up, waiting patiently for his pets, and was willing to be
anyone best friend once those pets were received. Koda’s gentle nature is sorely missed but will forever be a part of the shop.
Bear, she’s a special one. Bear is the daughter of Koda and visited the shop occasionally to start. She runs energetically up to anyone that attends Dirty Dog Diesel. Since Koda left, Bear has taken it upon herself to carry on his legacy by being a calm and loving presence at the shop. She’s taken on his traits, including smelling like diesel, and is now a permanant feature at the shop, becoming familiar with all the regulars who come by Dirty Dog Diesel.
