Sad news to pass along this afternoon: Tank
, one of the two resident bulldogs at O'Malley's Irish Pub (1900 Cherokee Street; 314-762-9308)
, passed away Wednesday. He was three years old.
Tank, already well-known to (and adored by) O'Malley's regulars, became the subject of keen local interest last month after he was stolen from the pub's patio
He was returned
to O'Malley's owner Tommy Gage
a few days later -- seemingly no worse for his ordeal.Biddy Gage
, the mother of O'Malley's owner Tommy, tells Gut Check via email, "I think the stress was just too much for him. He was with us and that is all that matters."
Tank is survived by his older bulldog brother, Bailey
