Kenji Dog
CoSydney – Site Supervisor & Gallery Dog

A loyal canine companion, Kenji Dog will be sorely missed.

In his 15 years of bring joy and pleasure to those around him, Kenji Dog was an avid observer and accomplished day-time snoozer.

Overseeing the entire enterprise, and with his paws into every aspect of the operation, Kenji Dog was the leader of the pack here ArtSHINE industries and CoSydney CoWorking.

When he wasn’t not sniffing things out, you’d most likely to find him snoozing in the coworking space, or roaming the ArtSHINE Gallery seeking treats and attention..

Always ready for a quick walk, or perhaps just a gentle tummy rub, Kenji Dog was always there to brighten your day, lick your feet, and put a smile on your face.

We’ll miss him.
