A story of friendship

About us

The Michael I Kudo foundation was created out of love for a Beagle. The Beagle was unexpected and so was the lasting love for the breed. Several years back Mike graciously accepted Bogey into his life when a long-time friend could no longer keep him. I think that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Mike embraced his new lifestyle with Bogey and took him along for all the fun. While Bogey loved hanging out with friends and family, he really enjoyed all of the eats that accompanied the guests when they came over.

Bogey eventually moved on but over the years Michael spoke of Bogey often and had hoped to adopt another beagle in the future. Unfortunately, Mike passed away unexpectedly and his dream of bringing another beagle into his life was unfulfilled. The Foundation was formed by Mike's Family who also share his love for the breed as a lasting legacy in memory of Mike.
