It is with heavy hearts that we announce the loss of a beloved member of the Fat Wreck family. On Friday our office dog and official Fat mascot, Bruiser, passed away. You may know her from the cover of NOFX’s 13 Stitches 7" or from pictures with bands on our site. We knew her as a loving, playful member of the office who was always a welcome distraction from work. We’ll miss her cute little face trotting around our desks, her penchant for always making a bed out of yet to be delivered Fat Wreck t-shirts (if you’ve ever found dog hair on a shirt you bought from us, now you know why), her unwavering protection from each and every deliveryman, and, most of all, her loving spirit. Bruiser, we love you, and we know you’ve gone on to join Jim Cherry, Derrick Plourde and Tony Sly in the punk rock beyond.
