The Shop Dogs

Craig's dogs, Jack and Hudson, have happily welcomed Mendon Cycle Smith customers for years. Friendly, laid-back and curious, they've become part of the shop and its culture.

Rest Peacefully, Old Friend

Jack came into our lives from Lollypop Farm in early summer 2001. He quickly changed them, forever.

He helped me build the shop, as well as its customer base, since the day I signed the lease.

His kind eyes and gentle demeanor made him, quite simply, the best greeter and ambassador a bike shop has ever known.

He was known about town as part of "that guy with the dogs on the bike" as we rode, every single morning around the roads and paths of Mendon, rain, snow, sleet, or sun. Jack never missed a chance to get out and run.

He was taken from us unexpectedly Thursday, May 30, 2013 after a rapid onset of Splenic cancer. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
