In Loving Memory of


April 18, 2011 - July 7, 2023

Meet Macintosh, our beloved shop dog, who was affectionately known as Toshi! With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our dear friend who brought immeasurable joy to our lives and to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him. This friendly and spirited Jack Russell was always the first to greet you at our Headquarters with a wagging tail and infectious enthusiasm.

Toshi had a unique way of making everyone feel welcomed, and before granting you access to our building, he conducted thorough inspections, demanding nothing more than belly rubs and treats—a small fee well worth paying for his unconditional love and companionship. Although he didn't look a day over 30 in human years, Toshi proudly embraced his status as a senior citizen while maintaining the adventurous spirit typical of his breed.

His favorite cocktail, the playful Blue Dolphin, reflected his lively personality—always up for a good time. With water shaken cold and served without ice, it was a fitting choice for our energetic and lively companion.

Throughout the years, Toshi became an essential part of our team, brightening our days, and leaving an indelible mark on the hearts of all who knew him. We will forever cherish the memories of his warm welcomes and his ability to bring joy to every visitor.

While Toshi may no longer be with us, his spirit lives on in our hearts and memories. We are grateful for the time we had with him and the happiness he brought to our lives. Rest in peace, dear Toshi. You will be deeply missed but never forgotten.
